The Roundtable: Serena Williams will always fight for equality; Lakers vs. Clippers
And Jermaine Dupri sparks dialogue about women in hip-hop
The Undefeated’s Roundtable takes on the hottest trending topics in sports, race and culture.
Justin Tinsley is back as host of the Roundtable with two new guests: Marcus Matthews, The Undefeated’s director of social media, and sports and sneaker culture writer Aaron Dodson.
This week’s panel weighs in on music mogul Jermaine Dupri, who was under fire for comments he made about choosing a favorite woman rapper.
Also, after Serena Williams lost her third straight Grand Slam final at Wimbledon, a reporter asked Williams to respond to comments that she should “stop being a celebrity for a year, stop fighting for equality and just focus on the tennis.” The 23-time Grand Slam singles champion said, “The day I stop fighting for equality and for people that look like you and me will be the day I’m in my grave,” and she left the presser.
