So a lot of people are up in arms about the Sydney Test (for those who actually haven't heard about it, here you go). Now I won't really add to the stuff already said, but, I chanced upon this article, where Mr. Waugh goes:
"Teams playing against Australia fail to understand that banter, gamesmanship, sledging or whatever anyone would like to call it is just the way Australian kids joust and play in the schoolyard and backyards."
So what does this say: Whatever they do unto others, is 'just the way they joust and play', it's 'their culture'. But whatever gets done unto them, is black-and-white racism???
There is no denying that racism needs to be dealt with severely. There is also perhaps no denying that something must have been said - if not in the Sydney Test, then at least by the spectators in Mumbai. Has someone taken a moment to think about whether the comments were actually racially inspired or 'just a joust and play'?
