Australian Cricket should be charged with Racism
" Elliot looks like someone who reads your water meter." Unacceptable racism by Australian cricket commentators.
The One Day International Cricket match between New Zealand and Australia is not over. I am furious with the racist attitude of the commentators
When New Zealand was 7 wickets for 237, a comment from the commentator. " Elliot looks like someone who reads your water meter." He has scored a great century against Australia when this comment was made.
Then a few seconds later, "Everyone is running Australia down this season," then a few seconds later " We get run down by an Ethiopian." Big, gutteral laughs from the commentators.
Do we have to put up with this racism from Australian cricket commentators ?
