Richard Williams Suffers a Stroke


Tennis phenoms Venus and Serena Williams' father Richard Williams, 74, suffers a debilitating stroke...

Richard's wife, 37-year-old Lakeisha Williams, tells Radar Online,
“His condition is fair – he’s up and walking around but he’s not at 100 percent.”
“He needs speech therapy, psychological therapy and physical therapy but for now he refused. I’m trying to get him under control and relaxed so that when we come back from out of town we could try to get that going. But he doesn’t wish to be bothered with anybody.”
“His mind is thinking that they’re going to put him back in ‘prison’ – which is what he calls the hospital. He thinks we are just going to take him back to the hospital, but that is not correct.”
“His mind is telling him that since he was once in charge of his life, after what’s happened he’s not accepting it. To him he’s a normal person – nothing happened to him.”
“We have to let nature take its course. I’ve been with him a long time so I know what he’s trying to say. It’s like training yourself for your child – like a baby, you have to think for them.”
Richard and Lakeshia were married in 2011 [click here if you missed that], and welcomed a baby boy the following year [click here if you missed that].

Classic Richard Williams defending 14-year-old Venus Williams from an over zealous interviewer.



Not so fun fact: Richard and his daughters became estranged shortly after Serena began hooking up with her married tennis coach Patrick Mouratoglou [click here if you missed that].

I had a complete heart exam last yr. High blood pressure is a huge problem. You must regulate it.

NOT sure if that caused his stroke. I do know men men ignore going to the doctors more than women.

I wish him well. She stood as a buffer against blatant racism for his girls. Helped them to become very successful women.

For the best outcome, need to start therapy ASAP following a stroke. Like, immediately.

Prayer does not work. As if.

Wishing Mr. Williams a speedy and complete recovery. The sisters were estranged from their father not because of Patrick but because he left their mother for a woman who is only a year older than Venus.

@ 11:38-speak for yourself- my life has been saved many times by prayer. Literally. You should try it sometime.

Hope he's able to regain some semblance of norrmality. This man is the reason Venus and Serena are the sucess stories they are today.

He can't be that bad off because he was sitting on the couch in Serena's snapchat yesterday. #justsaying

Stroke? Too much meat, dairy fat and starch in the diet. Hope he gets well soon.

Wonder what the young wife thinks now? Will be there in sickness and in health?

May Mr. Williams' MATERNAL ancestral forces intervene and help restore vitality to his organic CARBON cellular composition. May his pineal gland increase MELATONIN production which is vital for healing and restoring balanced cellular communications and mitigate the effects of stroke. May his FUNCTION be fully restored. Mr. Williams has STRENGTH of MIND. This is KEY to healing. His identification of the hospital as a 'prison' is correct. His genetic memory is acute. We, Blacks, have/had the intelligence to heal ourselves. The science of KMTstry was originated by AfRAkans whose TRUE culture is NUMBERS. We understood the dynamics of forces upon our physiology.

I know of an elder from Sierra Leone, West AfRAka who suffered a stroke and wouldn't allow U.S. doctors to give him any medicine. He healed himself using his MIND and the power of natural numbers which sent instructions to ALL of his cells. It took patience and discipline, but he FULLY recovered. This is ancient AfRAkan science. Nothing is more powerful and efficient than a MIND that synchronizes with ETERNAL FORCES that animate, drive and influence every carbon life form in the Universe. Many underestimate the FORCE POTENTIALS of THOUGHT. Ase!

To Mr. Williams, I say, "Chukwu g'od zie gi!!!" May FORCES be with you!

Getting that young good-good done caught up with him....But seriously, best wishes for a speedy recovery.

@Felicia - Yes!!! Mr. Williams is FEARLESS and HIGHLY confident. Having those TWO attributes makes one amenable to overcoming challenges and adversity.

He didn't allow the CRIMINAL PATHOLOGY of WHITE RACISM to divert his thinking or impede his determination to raise and coach his daughters to become champions and a dominant force and presence in tennis. He taught his daughters HOW to use their MINDS...and the seeds germinated for a bountiful harvest.

Fathers of Mr. Williams' caliber are a gem and are useful in instilling disciplined behavior which would change the social dynamics in our children beneficially over generations.

Mr. Williams AFFIRMS his heritage. I love that MOST about him. Ase!!

So funny how interviewers never asked Jordan Spieth where his confidence came from when he was a teenager competing in golf tourneys...Some people are deeply threatened/confused by confident, articulate people of color.

I will never forget Indian Wells and the hell the Williams' went through on the circuit. Shout out to Althea Gibson, Arthur Ashe, MaliVai Washington, Zina Garrison, and all those who put up with TONS of racist BS on the ATP & WTA circuits.

Its still alive and kicking. My daughter is in college on a full ride for tennis. This sport isn't a joke when facing black players. quote - the only way you won is that you cheated! this is the word all day on court when kicking tail. so when Serena has a moment. I DO UNDERSTAND where its coming from!

^^^Please ignore this troll who obviously needs a wholesome meal, an hour of meditation, a good night's rest, a hug, and a gallon of water. You're out of balance and will bring nothing to yourself by sadness and negativity.

Peace, God Bless, and get it together.

It's so irritating that people feel the need to "preach" on how important eating right and exercise is when someone old gets sick? In the end, no one is going to be sparred death's wrath. This man is 74 years old. People get old and whether it's a stroke or heart attack something is going to take them out eventually. Just give your well wishes and stop trying to tell people it's their fault that they got old and sick. Your ass ain't out the woods, either.

Drop a link for this "research" if you bad.

@4:22 Thanks for those well wishes. I accept The same to you;) I stand by what I said though. Also...I am well rested, hydrated, and full of Zen. Thanks. May your day be full of the same. ❤

4:15 is dead on
This man and his ex wife adopted two sons and cut off their genitals and gave them hormone treatments since very young
Why haven't these "girls" married or had any babies? Because it is common knowledge in LA LA land.

@7:09

Because women dont HAVE to get married or have babies to be WOMEN, you bitch.

Thank you 7:47 - I like a good conspiracy theory, but do they realize how demeaning and marginalizing it is to perpetuate the idea that Venus and Serena are men? It goes back to the desexualized/overly sexualized paradigm that haunts Black women post colonialism. Who needs White people running us down when we do it to each other? #willielynch

You can curse me all day but the man made then men millionaires that no woman can beat and that strategy made them rich. Wonder of he will take that secret to his grave. Still men. Kids or not. Husband or not.

If Venus and Serena were born male, they would have been outed a long time ago! Don't you think the USTA, the ATP, and both the US and International Olympic committees have tested their DNA? You can remove a man's penis and dress him as a woman all day, but DNA cannot be changed.

And it is obvious that Richard and Oracene are the bio parents of these two champions-BOTH of them look just like Richard!

This lie was started by jealous yt people who cannot stand black woman dominating a yt sport.

Sending out good vibes to the Williams family.

@4:15p, 7:09p & 10:13p - Please submit NON-DECEPTIVE CHROMOSOMAL evidence that supports your claim that the William sisters are XY TESTES-OCCUPANTS. The onus is on YOU to substantiate TRUTH.

Gene code sequencing within DNA/RNA, blood types and SOUND WAVE FREQUENCIES do NOT lie. FORENSIC EVIDENCE in each of these areas is pertinent to our physiology.

Speaking of secrets...

Contrary to your WHITE-ACCULTURATED beliefs and indoctrination, there are NO secrets in a Universe powered by forces. You've forgotten that your own carbon CELLULAR composition is animated by pure energy frequencies of MAGNETISM (spirit) and ELECTRICITY (soul).

Forces are omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent, omnimagnificent, omniundulating and omnidirectional.

In laymen terms, forces are here, there and everywhere and are highly intelligent.

AfRAkans KNOW how to read forces to extract facts for EVERY natural phenomenon on the planet. Forces liquidate ALL fraud, deceptions, lies and illusions. Even your own private thoughts and memories are accessible through FORCES.

Back to the Williams' sisters...

A muscular, athletic build is a common GENETIC TRAIT among BOTH women and men of West AfRAkan nations. No doubt the Williams' sisters come from West AfRAkan gene stock.

Thank GOODNESS the Williams' sisters are not genetically watered down with contorted modified-APE Neanderthal DNA that produces weak, non-curvature, FRAIL osteoporosis-prone frames.
