The Black Lives Matter movement has its fair share of detractors within the Black community, but Serena Williams is not one of them. Serena, who is WIRED magazine’s November guest editor, says she supports the efforts of BLM.

“… To those of you involved in equality movements like Black Lives Matter, I say this: Keep it up. Don’t let those trolls stop you. We’ve been through so much for so many centuries, and we shall overcome this too (see ‘Get Up, Stand Up’). To other people, I say: When someone’s harassing someone else, speak up! J. K. Rowling spoke up for me this summer, and it was an amazing feeling—I thought, well, ‘I can speak up too.'”

Williams also tackled equality in the work place. “In the NFL, they have something called the Rooney rule. It says that teams have to interview minority candidates for senior jobs. It’s a rule that companies in Silicon Valley are starting to follow too, and that’s great. But we need to see more women and people of different colors and nationalities in tech. That’s the reason I wanted to do this issue with WIRED—I’m a black woman, and I am in a sport that wasn’t really meant for black people. And while tennis isn’t really about the future, Silicon Valley sure is.”

Before his chat with “TRW” hosts Michael Eric Dyson, Claudia Jordan and executive producer and guest co-host, Ice-T, HH stopped by the set to get the inside scoop on if they planned on grilling our guy like he’s had to do to so many celebs himself. Instantly, Jordan began plotting her revenge, “he catches people off-guard all the time,” Claudia quipped, “so let him come here and he will find out for himself what the question are because he’s gotten me a couple times.”

Luckily, when Kevin did show up, the two played nice. Check out the clip below and be sure to head to for local listings.
