Asshole of the Week

This week was kind of tough to choose just one asshole. We had Kenny Rogers (the baseball player not singer) shoving a camera and kicking it for no apparent reason. We had IOC (and French) president Jacques Chirac say that the only good thing Britain gave Europe was Mad Cow Disease (but he got his by having to state the London and not Paris won the right to host the Olympics in 2012 in front of the entire world). But both of these idiots don't match up to my asshole of the week for this week. Congratulations Richard Williams, you are the winner of the Rican's prestigious honor!

For those of you who don't know who Richard Williams is, he is the father of Venus and Serena Williams (tennis players). This guy has been weird ever since his daughters came onto the tennis scene. He's been accused of fixing their matches and deciding which one would win in a head to head match, as well as meddling with their coaching. This, however, is not the reason for the award this week. The reason why this man is my asshole of the week is because he has accused EVERYONE about being racist against his daughters and wanting them to fail. He says that tennis fails to support and promote his daughters like they do some of the other women's stars.

Well dude let me give you a reality check. Women's tennis is not that popular of a sport. Tennis in general is not that popular of a sport except for the Grand Slam tournaments and even then they struggle with ratings. Tennis has supported your daughters as well as some of the other women in tennis. They like to promote competitive balance not dominance by 2 people. How can you suggest that the world is racist against your daughter when they both signed endorsement contracts with sneaker companies that at the time were the highest $ amounts ever for women? How can you say that the umpires are racist against your daughters when they won 2 out of the 3 Grand Slam tournaments this year? Get a clue dude EVERYONE thinks referees suck. They get yelled at by everyone and they get their calls questioned everyday, your situation is nothing different.

You can't play the race card for every little thing that you don't agree with. Look dude I'm sure you and your daughters have experienced some racism. All minorities have in their lives. But this isn't 1960 bro, most people aren't so ignorant that everything they do is rooted in racism. Some people just don't like your daughters, some people prefer Maria Sharapova (she's hot), Lindsay Davenport, or any other woman. It's not because your daughters are black it's just because they choose to support someone else. People like you make me sick. You play the race card whenever it's convenient because no one really can say anything back to you w/o sounding like a racist themselves. Well you know what dude that shit is played out and for that reason you are the Asshole of the Week (probably for the month too!).

I definitely have to steal the IDEA of asshole of the week for my blog, I'd be writing for days.

Sharapova is not hot. She screams like a banshee, is way too scrawny, and is a little priss.

There is something to say about her getting too much attention for growing up "so poor" in Siberia when in fact she grew up in Florida playing tennis whereas Venus and Serena actually did grow up in Compton.

But Papi Williams is a nutball so can't argue about your weekly selection.
