Wozniaki's Williams Impression: Funny or Racist?

Last weekend while playing a match against Maria Sharpova in Sao Paulo, Brazil, tennis ace Caroline Wozniaki stuffed her top and pants and played a point as "Serena Williams."

While many are saying that the pro was just having a little laugh poking fun at her close friend, others are up in arms at what they're calling a "racist act."

For my money, I think Wozniaki was just having some lighthearted fun. After all, Williams is known for making fun of herself (And others, remember the "crip walk" brouhaha following her snagging the gold medal at the Olympics?) and she is known for having a good sense of humor.

Racist? When did boobs and butt become racist? Now if she came out in blackface and sang "Mammy", that would be different. Racist... sheezz.

People need to stop throwing around the word racist so easily. A racist isn't someone who makes fun at people, A racist is a person with a prejudiced belief that one race is superior to others or giving someone discrimination or prejudice based on race. What she did is not racist. WHen I clicked on this article I expected to see someone in a black face outfit at the very least. But c'mon America its 2013. Black people need to stop throwing the racial card all the damn time.

I'm a black female and don't consider that racist at all, maybe distasteful to some but it's funny to me.

@jynx, whites need to stop doing racist s**t all the time then playing the "I didn't mean any harm" or "you people are so sensitive" cards when called out on it. @Larry Dalzell, don't say disrespectful things about the first lady. Try to pretend that you have basic home training. Dayum!

Jynx makes a good point that was also running through my head as I read the article: racism is not the act of pointing out physical attributes or other differences more common in one race or another. Racism is discrimination and prejudice against someone based on his/her race. And as far as this article is concerned, one woman pointing out the curviness of another female's body generally is considered a compliment in our society.

@screwu2- - YOU are the only racist posting here. as several writers have said, if she's came out black faced and singing mammy, THAT would show racism. as it was, wozniaki's imitation did not go quite far enough- before reading the article, I thought she was twerking- she also needed about 30 extra pounds of material wrapped around each thigh and rattier, wilder hair. Perfect SNL material! you need to learn the difference between imitation & discrimination. suppose wozniaki happened to be a person of color- what would you call her actions then?

Unless big tits are unique to blacks this is in no way racist, and to call it such is moronic.

I'm a White man and of Polish descent like my sister Caroline Wozniaki. I see those "snoop dog"(its own words)/mongrel so-called "blacks" (Rush Limbaugh calls them "congressional black caucasians") like opruh, beyonse, alice sharptin etc. wearing human wigs and red lipstick in mockery to my God and to my White Catholic/Christian people. Gods word teaches White Catholics/Christians that we are created in Gods image. Does anyone see White Catholics/Christians wearing steelwool pads on their heads and their noses taped down flat? My White Catholic/Christian brothers and sisters are welcome to converse with me about our God and our people at greater length on twitter @MichaelKoresko.

Just because the joke was relay by a white woman it is now tagged as "racist act". Does it mean when you're joking at a friend you have to be in a same colour or race? When will racist act issues ever stop when all petty jokes are considered grave derogatory act towards another person (race or culture)! Oh c'mon! This is sickening, unless she's not a friend and is mocking the other person I don't think we have to fuss or make a big deal over a simple joke.
