They don't have real jobs. They have a ton of free time to wear their costume wear any where they want in the appropriate places.

The little bit of time they are on the job and this is what we get.

And we wonder why white people don't take us seriously.

Their job is to play tennis. They should show some respect to the court and the people who pay to watch them play or does women's tennis need to institute a uniform for it's competitors because some are too immature to know how to dress themselves properly? Ben was accused of rape but as the investigation went on they couldn't find enough evidence to warrant the charges. However, in the case of Vick, there were plenty of evidence. Your lame excuse that "it goes on in neighborhoods all across america" is sorry. It's sorry that you think that it happening around the country automatically means he shouldn't have been punished for being a stupid idiot. It's sorry that you think it happens more often than it really does just because you see it all the time where you live. Vick was an idiot. A smarter man would never have gotten caught. He left himself wide open to the police. However, he served his time and is back in the game. No problem as long as he keeps his nose clean. This isn't about Venus being a role model. This is about respect. Respect for the fans who pay to watch her play, respect for the judges who will call the game, respect for the court, and respect for the game. You want to dress like a muscle bound drag queen, take it to the clubs.

OK, I just saw some more photos of the outfit. I see that she wasn't actually wearing a thong, so it isn't quite as bad as I thought. It is still tacky, though.

Ok for the first time ever, I can say that Venus Williams looked pretty darned sexy in that outfit. I have NEVER been a fan of hers (in the looks department), but DANG that girl has a nice butt. She WAS wearing some flesh colored Daisy Duke type shorts underneath that lacey get up, but because of the color, it looked like she was nude.

And if she wanted to wear that out to clubbing later on, that would have been totally different. Doesn't belong on the tennis court. She has more people talking about her trashy outfit than her game. It was the French Open for heaven's sake. Have some class.

Is there a dress code in tennis? Nope!! The people can dress in any attire, which suit him/her.

Back in the day, golfers wore knuckers.

Did someone mention Anna K? That's funny. Who is that. She's so insignificate to the sport...who cares.

I thought the outfit was unattractive, that's it.

You know what, Soaradio. That point is driven home by Kane every few days. "Black" athletes and celebs should blah blah blah. Whaaaatevvvva!

Someone, please put something in Kane's mouth. Those statements are old and tired.
