Don't make fun of Jiggers. They have a hair triggers when it comes to crying racism and it's getting old. All the more reason to call them apes.

" She innocently, jokingly impersonated her friend, Serena Williams, at a tennis exhibition in Brazil. She used a towel to pad her chest to cartoon levels, and another one to pad her rear end. It was possibly racially insensitive, or possibly just funny. Did I mention race? That was the jumping-off point for Twitter, bloggers and even "The View.'' Wozniacki was labeled a racist, and it went viral. International. And it was unfair. Her little act was not racist. Insensitive, maybe, but not racist. "You can make as much fun as you want to,'' Whoopi Goldberg said on "The View.'' "She's still going to beat your ass.'' Yes, anger sells. But in this case, it was created. Williams and Wozniacki actually have quite a different relationship than it might seem based on Goldberg's comments."

The "View"? could there be a more estrogen soaked, politically correct, white-male hating group in the world?
