I think it was in Paris that Blake got angry with the umpire about how much money he was costing him by making bad calls. Interesting guy

What are you talking about? If anything, James HAS to overcompensate to be considered anything of worth in the black community. Hell, every black person I kow who follows tennis was pulling for Monfils over him at RG because Monfils was actually black.

Or maybe because those people actually said, "I hope Monfils wins since he is actually black."

James may indeed be bi-racial, but here in the US he is considered Black.

End of story.

In the US, being 6.25% black = being 100% black

Ah yes...the lovely one drop rule. My good friend who is mixed gets annoyed about people making her feel like she has to chose one or the other. Ummm...she is has two parents with two different backgrounds.

I didn't see anything wrong with what he said. It is MLK Day after all..

I like a lot of players.

It bothers me that almost no one in his big cheering section at the Open is black, though.

How do you want him to pose for a picture,with a frown on his face or crying is it that bad to love yourself,how many tennis players dont love themselves and who are less known or with less talent??
