After Serena Williams made her historic Wimbledon win over the weekend, the tennis star spoke about the recent deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile and why she worries about her young nephews.
“I don’t think that the answer is to continue to shoot our young black men in the United States. It’s just unfortunate. Or just black people in general,” said Williams. “Also, obviously, violence is not the answer of solving it. The shooting in Dallas was very sad.”
Williams mentioned her sister Janus’ sons, Jair and Jefferey, and how these shootings make her think about their safety.
“I feel anyone in my color in particular is of concern,” Williams said. “I do have nephews that I’m thinking, do I have to call them and tell them, ‘Don’t go outside. If you get in your car, it might be the last time I see you’? That is something that I think is of great concern because it will be devastating. They’re very good kids.”
