Social Media Storm Racism That Has Hit English Cricket
Race in sport through the lens of grassroots attempts to combat prejudice in cricket, the iconic English cricket. Cricket has a long history of discrimination. which was originally based on social class. But recent events have brought up racial and national identity issues in a very public way. Cricket became a positive focal point for successful protests against South Africa’s apartheid rule. Legislative change in the UK has fundamentally affected the ability to effectively demonstrate and campaign on.

Azeem Rafiq, 30, a former athlete, revealed a year ago that. He had considered suicide after receiving racist insults from teammates. Yorkshire launched an investigation on its own. It carried on for months. But it was eventually revealed that Rafiq had been subjected to discriminatory behaviour on multiple occasions. The club expressed regret but opted not to penalise individuals involved.
Only a few people found the situation amusing. “Heads should roll,” urged Health Secretary Sajid Javid, the son of a Pakistani immigrant. Major advertisers, including Yorkshire Tea, a proudly local institution, have cancelled their endorsement deals. Yorkshire’s long-suffering leadership tried to remain silent as the club became a symbol of racism. Roger Hutton, the club’s chairman, had resigned by Friday. The episode exposes a lot about the club and English cricket in general. However, it also demonstrates how far British attitudes around race have shifted.
The PCA said the survey will feed into an ongoing education programme for its members. Which will include training on unconscious bias. The survey prompted by a response among their members to the Black Lives Matter movement last summer. The findings imply that gamers are unsure about what constitutes racist behavior.
While the vast majority of respondents of all races agree that counties allow “players of all ethnicities to develop,” 36% were unsure whether racism existed in cricket.
The majority of those who indicated they had witnessed or experienced racism said it came from other players, 10% from coaches, and 26% from fans. When asked what they felt the goal of such instances, 62 percent responded “banter.”
The PCA stated that it had not attempt to define “banter” precisely because it was commonly known within the game. From March, education courses will offered to all domestic male and female teams. As well as the England men’s and women’s squads.
