Ishant Sharma's 2014 Racist Instagram Post Against Darren Sammy Sparks Outrage
Recently, Darren Sammy revealed in a video on Instagram on how he has faced racism. Sammy said, 'I have played all over the world and I have found love with a lot of people. Wherever I have played, I have found love in the dressing room. So when I was listening to American comedian Hassan Minhaj in which he explains how black people are perceived in their society. ' 'This does not apply to everyone but when I came to know the meaning of one word, I got very angry and it was humiliating. I remember when I was playing for Sunrisers Hyderabad, I was called by the exact same word that is used to humiliate black people. '
Sammy said that when ‘I was called by the word, I did not know its meaning but my team members used to laugh. Then I used to think that some laughable thing is being said. But now I am going to tell them what those people really are.’
recently I discovered a word that I was being called was not what it actually meant I need some answers. So before I start calling out names I need these individuals to reach out and please tell me there’s another meaning to that word. I saw u as brothers https://t.co/Ouf7eh5Yu8— Daren Sammy (@darensammy88) June 9, 2020
