The tennis star shared that while driving in the car with her nephew, who was behind the wheel, she began to worry about his safety after seeing a police car on the side of the road. In that moment, she said, she realized how easily someone she loves could end up like so many others.
a�?Today I asked my 18 year old nephew (to be clear hea��s black) to drive me to my meetings so I can work on my phonea��In the distance I saw cop on the side of the road.A�I quickly checked to see if he was obliging by the speed limit. Than I remembered that horrible video of the woman in the car when a cop shot her boyfriend,a�? Williams wrote to her more than 4 million followers.
a�?All of this went through my mind in a matter of seconds. I even regretted not driving myself. I would never forgive myself if something happened to my nephew. Hea��s so innocent. So were all a�?the others.a��
a�?Why did I have to think about this in 2016? Have we not gone through enough, opened so many doors, impacted billions of lives? But I realized we must stride on- for ita��s not how far we have come but how much further still we have to go,a�? she added.
