Osaka has lent her voice to the ongoing unrest. Half-Japanese, half-Haitian, she knows better than most how race can define you. The tennis superstar spent most of the past few weeks posting pictures by the swimming pool but has now entered the fray.
“Just because it isn’t happening to you, doesn’t mean it isn’t happening at all,” she wrote on Instagram. “It’s funny to me that the people who wanna wear chains, blast hip hop in the gym, attempt to get dapped up, and talk in slang are suddenly quiet right now.”
