Serena Williams on the Minneapolis shooting and related protests: I’m lost for words

23 time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams has posted her reaction to the killing of George Floyd and the related protests across the United States. Serena is known to be a major role model for the black community and has often spoken about how she has been a victim of racism on the court as well as off the court..

Williams posted a video on social media, saying that she couldn't find the words to express how sad she feels at the events happening, although she says that this is nothing, only that it has been filmed (referring to the killing of Floyd).

I can’t and still can’t find the words to say or express how sad I feel.... but she found them for me. She found them for so many of us.

A lot of us are numb... lost for words... I know I am. This is a difficult time. A lot of us growing up were taught to pray “Let thy kingdom come,” this is what I continue to pray for in addition to so many that have been hurt/killed, or simply traumatized by how people of a different color are treated.

The worst part is this is nothing new, “it’s just filmed”. I’m with a heavy heart. I’m lost for words. Video from @wealth
