Last year, Maria Sharapova earned almost twice as much endorsement money as Serena Williams—$23 million to $12 million—even though Williams has racked up twice as many points as Sharapova in singles competitions over the past year and has beaten Sharapova 14 consecutive times. Twelve mil is still a decent amount of scratch—and Sharapova is also an excellent player—but the fact remains that Williams has to work harder to make less money.

I despair. I mean… 

you write this article about misogyny and sexism and women athletes, bring up Serena Williams, and fail to also mention the misogynoir? 

Like, Serena Williams is fucking *beautiful* and a fucking champion. That other woman is making more not because she is beautiful and Serena ugly, but because she is fucking *white*.

I personally think it’s important to talk about Bieber’s arrest.

An underaged, drunk driving, arrest-resisting, foreign white boy was released on bond. 

Then take a moment to think about the brown boys who are deported for much, much less and the black boys who are shot or beaten to within an inch of life for resisting arrest.
