Following tweets shared by Serena Williams on Tuesday night accusing officials of discrimination after confirming that she has been tested more than any other female player this year.
In a video shared by TMZ, rapper Common was questioned on his Serena’s latest ‘discrimination’ tweet, and he said that she’s being discriminated against because she is a black woman.
In his words:
“As a black woman, do you think she’s getting discriminated against? YES. If they’re testing her more than anyone else, it’s a reason for that. And there’s conscious and subconscious and I would say conscious is the fact that she’s a black woman and they’re looking for some reason to be able to take her down and discredit her … but she’s the queen!”
Common added: “She’s one of the greatest figures in sports EVER and leaders. She’s an incredible human being. I don’t know why they wanna bring her down. She does so much for the sport.”
