They did the cool thing, the classy thing, by bringing Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert out to embellish, or even to authenticate, the occasion of Serena Williams joining their 18 Grand Slam singles victory club Sunday evening after Williams toyed with Caroline Wozniacki in the United States Open final.

The request was made Saturday, Navratilova would say, after standing with Evert in a corner of the court at Arthur Ashe Stadium, waiting for Mary Carillo to cue them to the presentation of the championship trophy and a shiny bracelet.

Once upon an era, the career-long rivals Navratilova and Evert shared bagels in the locker room before fittingly finishing their careers with the same number of slams. Now it was their turn to…

Wafer, 55, shot the 19-year-old McBride on November 2, 2013, through his screen door, after she knocked in the middle of the night for help with an accident. Wafer said he shot McBride out of fear and has admitted he was drinking the night before; however, his claims of self-defense was not enough to convince the jury of his innocence.

Darren Wilson’s supporters

The fact that people would even raise money for such a person is disgusting.

Darren Wilson has raised nearly $400,000 so far on GoFundMe.com. Compare that to Michael Brown’s family’s $250,000 – or George Zimmerman’s $200,000. Wilson is the White American police officer who gunned down Michael Brown, a Black teenager in Ferguson, Missouri.

Some who gave money said stuff like this:

“We appreciate your service in the animal control division of the Ferguson police department.”

and this:

“Let this ‘GoFundMe’ serve as an example to all cops in America: The general public will support you, especially if you pull the trigger on violent criminal thugs.”

GoFundMe has since deleted those sort of comments and returned the money of those who made them. (GoFundMe’s cut is 5% of all money raised.)

Before this stuff disappears down the White American memory hole:

James Bennett ($250): The real America is with you !!!!

Former Cop ($200): Remember … you fought what others fear.

I’d like to reiterate that this blog is for my Melanin-Rich family. I do not write for anyone else. I do not think about anyone else. My number one concern is for my people and my people alone.
