    So you've seen a few rap videos and heard some songs so you're suddenly an expert. ..right. You get upset because I presume things about you yet you presumed all kinds of things in your first post about me (that I'm a bigot, don't understand hip hop, am white etc). Such a hypocrite.

    Honest question, have you ever actually been exposed to gang culture? First hand, not watching videos or tv? I've been exposed to that in REAL LIFE not tv.

    Serena is from Compton and knows damn well what the crip dance is all about. She should have known better.

    I heart Sloane and her mom. Might actually follow the wta if she is consistent. Might. Maybe.

    I loved Richard Williams. Possible type set up as the Williams sisters and their dad Sloane and her mom. The USA players seem to be a 2 live crew too.

    Well, you're.....you, which will forever put you below Serena class-wise.

    I'm a big serena fan, but I think she probably could've chosen a better dance. It at the end of the day just gives racists a reason to be racists. truth is she could have done a dance like Petkovic(sp) and they would've still said something. I actually think it's a cool dance myself but would never tell the crips that. crips now involve her in their videos kind of claiming her if you will and I'm sure she meant nothing by it when she did it. again it just gives racists a reason to be racist. That's the only reason I say she should've done something different. It doesn't matter what dance she did on any court. She is still the goat in women's tennis.

    You said it right bro. Some just don't understand. Again, I wouldn't have done it but it can be seen different ways....It might actually make some crip see they can do something besides be a crip in real life...Im sure many here wouldn't want to see that but it would be good for others to see her as an example of what life and see they have something in common with Serena could be a positive effect.

    I could swear that was a thread about Sloane Stephens when I clicked on it. The site must have mis-directed me.

    Me too. Another thread that "devolved". They used to have moderators here!

    99 percent of the threads on here bring other players into the discussion...not that uncommon.

    All you have to do it report any posts you think are inappropriate. Click on the word report in the banner area of each post and you'll be prompted to type in an explanation as to why the post is inappropriate.

    I wouldn't waste my time bothering moderators with it. There is nothing in any of these posts that is "inappropiate".

    I always do a gang dance when I'm happy. Terrible argument for class there buddy...Nice throwing out the terms bigotry and ignorance too, that really solidifies it!

    Absolutely perfect summation of why modern society is completely screwed.

    Yes true, I have a hard time imagining anyone accusing Lisicki of lack of class if she won Wimbledon and did this dance.
