On her journey to becoming one of the greatest tennis players of all time, Serena Williams has been very candid about her experiences with racism and sexism in addition to learning how to be confident with her voluptuous figure.

For the 19th time in a row, Serena recently beat Maria Sharapova during the Australian Open while looking AH-MA-ZING in a yellow Nike crop top and skirt.

During her next match against Agnieszka Radwanska, two fans trolls were in the crowd wearing yellow body paint and blackface while holding a sign that said, “Keep Calm And Be Serena”.

“Australia is a pretty racist country. Not at all surprised” commented  on the blackface photo posted by journalist Russell Brown. It’s unfortunate that in 2016, some people still think it’s okay to be blatantly disrespectful and racist.

In true Serena fashion, she went on to beat Radwanska and will face Angelique Kerber in the finals.
