Cricket has stooped to a ridiculous level with the Harbhajan & Symonds controversy.
Read my post below on the top sledges in cricket, and judge for yourself if this issue
was more offensive or even racist. Calling someone monkey is definitely not a racist
remark, in India. The origin of this ‘monkey’ controversy was in India –
Baroda & Mumbai where a section of the crowd booed Symonds calling him a
monkey, specifically called out saying “What is a monkey doing along with the
kangaroo’s”. Seriously do you think crowd knew that ‘monkey’ was a racist term?
And did they really intend to hurt the Aussie player by the racist term – “monkey”?
I would be surprised if any one meant it as a racist slur but rather it was mocking
of the player. Come on, with the way he come on the field he sure could be mistaken
And if this article were to be believed, the strong Aussie player who likes to “play hard”, was deeply hurt. Baloney!!!
And yes the Aussie players are a bunch of weenies if this is the truth
