South African fast pitcher Kagiso Rabada said athletes should speak out to spread the message of racial equality His comments came after Jason Holder of the West Indies expressed his disappointment that no IPL team were  » showed solidarity with the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement “To be honest, I haven’t had a single conversation here (IPL) around him (BLM) Sometimes it seems like it has gone unnoticed which is sad,” said Holder, who is in the United Arab Emirates. as part of the Sunrisers Hyderabad team

Obviously black people are much more convinced of the BLM movement than others, and it hurts black IPL cricketers that no one has taken the initiative to show solidarity with them on this. burning question

Rabada said today that it is important to spread the right message « It is important that people do not feel inferior. Liberation of the spirit is the most important thing, » he said said « I think that’s the message you want to spread, especially as an athlete when you have a platform to express that Lots of people follow what you’re doing, because that’s the nature of the athlete… I am on a stage where people can now listen to me « 

« Sometimes it is your responsibility to continue to remind people that it is important to fight for good causes, » he said

Indian cricketers rarely talk about discrimination or division issues in our society Some of them have talked about individual cases of injustice or violence, but no one dares talk about discrimination or violence against people. specific groups A few months ago, former West Indies captain Daren Sammy revealed that his teammates at the IPL Sunrisers Hyderabad team called him « Kalu » Neither the team nor his teammates apologized to him

One of his teammates, Irfan Pathan, spoke publicly on the matter, but insisted he was « not aware of such an incident. » Pathan’s claim is hard to believe as Sammy’s name was quite public on this team – another teammate, Ishant Sharma, classified Sammy as « Kalu » under a photo he shared on social media in 2014

Chris Gayle had reacted to Sammy’s revelation about Indian players: “They smile with you but yet they are against you / our race !! It’s never too late to stand up for what’s right! Asian, where is your support for racism? « 

But India denies its racism problem Three years ago, BJP MP Tarun Vijay said that Indians cannot be called racist, saying, « If we (Indians) were racist, why would we have all of the south? Which is, you know completely Tamil, you know Kerala, you know Karnataka and Andhra Why do we live with them? We have blacks, blacks all around us « 

Rabada is right – it is important that role models such as our cricketers speak out on issues that really matter
