The C.O.W.S. BLACK AND WHITE: THE WAY I SEE IT Part III

The Context of White Supremacy hosts the third study session on Richard Williams’ 2014 publication, Black & White: The Way I See It. Mr. Williams is the father of two of the greatest tennis players in history, Serena and Venus Williams. Mr. Williams is not the most popular or revered coach on the tennis circuit. He’s been frequently lambasted  – even accused of “rigging” matches between his two child prodigies. Mr. Williams’ autobiography details the superbly constructive influence of his black mother – Mrs. Julia Metcalf Williams – as well as his childhood in the south. Last week’s segment offered additional anecdotes of White brutality. Mr. Williams explains how Whites would set hounds loose on random, unarmed black people and that White savages would mutilate black residents and feed their dogs the severed black appendages. At a young age, Mr. Williams realized that Shreveport, Louisiana would not offer him an adequate life; he began plotting his escape. Mr. Williams’ father remains, impotent, absent. This week will offer a special tribute to Mr. Beaumont as well as a final showdown between Mr. Williams and the Ku Klux Klan. This text appears to be a wonderful illustration of #BlackSelfRespect
