In section 2
In section 2, Serena Williams is viewed differently because of her actions during the tennis match and this can be seen due to her race.One example of this is at the 2009 Women’s US Open final when Serena Williams allowed her rage to be seen. At this point, Rankine places the reader in the point of view of a posh tennis-watcher: “Oh my God, she’s gone crazy, you say to no one” (27). This shows that Serena is unable to show how she feels without being judged and the fact that she’s black makes it worse because she’s already looked at more negatively.The next time she is judged is On September 11, 2011, when Serena goes after the Grand Slam cup once more. Some think that she wants to prove her “red-blooded American patriotism” to become “beloved by the tennis world” (31). This is illustrating that she is trying to please others by fitting in and doing what is seen as good by them.
