Olympians Respond to Critics

Serena Williams' Crip Walk Dance Criticized As Inappropriate (VIDEO). Huffington Post 

Serena Williams was so overjoyed after defeating Maria Sharapova in the Olympic singles and winning the gold that she broke into a Crip Walk dance. "It was just me. I love to dance," Williams told reporters who inquired about her Crip Walk. "I didn't know what else to do. I was so happy, and next thing I know I started dancing and moving. I didn't plan it. It just happened."

“How ignorant is it of people to comment on her hair and she still has more competitions to go. Are you trying to ruin her self confidence?," Hawkins told "She has to go out there and feel good about herself, and if she feels good about herself on that floor, who are you to criticize her? What have you done to help contribute to her dream, that you felt it necessary to put it out there so that she could see it.”

I've begun to think people are just becoming more mean and hateful. From such frivolous, unnecessary criticims, to outright bullying to our political climate, to outright killing of people in schools, theaters, temples... There is such a strong spirit of darkness across America and around the world, one wonders how much more has to happen before Jesus returns?
