On the issue of racism, Dwayne Bravo said - We are also entitled to 'Respect and equality'

Kingston: West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo appealed for 'respect and equality' for blacks who have been victims of discrimination for years, saying 'now it is enough'. After the death of African-American George Floyd at the hands of a white police officer in the US, former West Indies captain Darren Sammy and Chris Gayle strongly condemned racism, and now Bravo also voiced his opinion on the issue. "What has happened in the world is tragic," Bravo told former Zimbabwean cricketer Pommy Mbangwa on Instagram on Tuesday. As blacks, we know the history of black people through which times they have passed. We never talk of revenge, we just talk about equality and respect. "He said," We respect others. Then why are we constantly facing it. Enough is enough. We only want equality. We do not want revenge or war. ''

Bravo said, "We want respect." We share love among every section of people and appreciate them. This is most important. The 36-year-old Bravo, who played 40 Tests, 164 ODIs and 71 T20 Internationals for the West Indies, said he wanted the world to know that they are powerful and good people. He gave examples such as Nelson Mandela, Mohammed Ali and Michael Jordan. He said, "We want our brothers and sisters to know that we are powerful and beautiful." Consider some of the greatest people in the world, be it Nelson Mandela, Mohammed Ali or Michael Jordan. We had leadership who paved the way for us. Two-time T20 World Cup winner captain Sammy had earlier alleged that he used to make racist remarks against Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Indian Premier League. He said that when he was in India he was called 'Kalu'. Gayle, who plays in the IPL, also took the side of Sammy on Twitter, saying that there is racism in cricket.
