Serena Williams is not only focussed on winning title after title on court, but she is also a staunch defender of the black community. The American sensation has been investing in various initiatives aimed at helping the people of color with a strong focus on supporting women.
During a recent interview, Serena ented her frustration for the fact that many capital investments are not directed at the black community, and money always goes to “the same people.”
The 23-time champion revealed that she is going to help to set up a fund with the intention to change or correct this trend.
“How are we ever going to see a difference if all the money is going to the same type of person. Also, people of color get even less than that. I mean, they’re at like 0.2, I mean, me being black, I want to talk about that. I don’t know if I can change it. But we are going to start a fund and we are going to try and change that,” said Serena.
