Look: Serena Williams Speaks Out on Racial Injustices With This Touching Post

"There comes a time when silence is betrayal."

Published September 28th

Serena Williams isn't going to just sit back and watch various racial injustices happen before her very eyes.

On Tuesday, the tennis legend broken her silence on such issues, taking to her Facebook account and using a story about her 18-year-old nephew driving as a springboard to open up the conversation of racial and social injustices against African-Americans in the U.S.

Check out her powerful post.

Evoking Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s quote about silence being betrayal at the end and vowing to not be quiet on such issues herself was an especially powerful way to end this statement and promise.

It will be interesting to see how Serena specifically plans to combat racial inequality moving forward.
