The Washington Post noted Knight drew Williams with facial features that reflected caricatures common in the 19th and 20th centuries.
And you just have to live with it. Knight had publicly replied to one person on Twitter — US sportswriter Julie DiCaro — seeking an apology for her suggestion it was sexist. Poor behaviour in any sport needs to be called out.
The Herald Sun article ended with a series of other recent Knight cartoons, but did not include one from last month about Sudanese-Australian violence in Melbourne, which also sparked accusations of racism.
This is Jim Crow-racist. For those unfamiliar with the history invoked here, read about the coon caricature. Well done on reducing one of the greatest sportswomen alive to racist and sexist tropes and turning a second great sportswoman into a faceless prop. Racist bigotry at its finest. No matter what you think about this situation.
