NABJ Denounces Herald Sun cartoon of Serena Williams and Naomi Osaka

Washington, D.C. (Sept. 10, 2018) -- 
The racist cartoon of Serena Williams and Naomi Osaka by Mark Knight of the Herald Sun (Australia) is repugnant on many levels. The Sept. 10 cartoon not only exudes racist, sexist caricatures of both women, but Williams’ depiction is unnecessarily sambo-like. The art of editorial cartooning is a visual dialogue on the issues of the day, yet this cartoon grossly inaccurately depicts two women of color at the US Open, one of the grandest stages of professional sports.
