Is it 'racist' to caricature any aspect of a person who happens to be black? by Jay Knott (12/11/12)       ⇌ (Irony)       

A Danish tennis player did a Serena Williams impersonation by padding her bust and behind. Guess what she's being accused of.

An article on read: "Given the history and current-day context of racialized standards of beauty, and the hypersexualization of people of color, when a white woman makes fun of a black women’s body, especially in a way that hypersexualizes her and draws on the stereotype of black women’s big butts, it’s racist."

What "stereotype"?  That's what Serena Williams actually looks like!
