    There is a subtle implicit racism in South Asian societies towards black people and black countries. It's hard to detect because it's not necessarily similar to the way racism that makes news is manifested - such as hate crimes or police discrimination etc. It's a slightly different South Asian flavour which is more a reflection of the shallowness and superficiality of these countries - being fair skinned/whit is considered better, being dark skinned/black is considered worse.

    There is reason to believe that his comment came out that way in part because they were second string players, but in part because they were black from Africa.

    Yeah I mean, just looking at this:

    I don’t even know the name of any of these so-called foreign players. It seems they just picked up players from wherever. Picked some from Africa and called them foreign players. Picked some from Africa and called them foreign players.
    Why can't foreign players be from Africa? Would he have been as dismissive about de Villiers? If so, wtf?

    It just doesn't make sense unless it was racist.

    There is a noticeable racist tone when Indians talk about blacks, and even North-East Indians. Not surprised at all.

    A small mercy this didn't go through, surely there's enough of a burning furnace of batting talent in Pakistan to seek aid from the darkest of corners?

    Sharjeel Khan could be a big loss for their white ball side. He is one of the only modern batsmen they have and can get them off to fliers. I am not saying he is a gun or anything but was important in changing the philosophy of the side.

    Think his problem was that he all too willingly bought into the pre existing philosophy.

    To add to this, Imran is a repeat offender when it comes to this issue. A while back, Imran was confronted on television by a politician who happens to have a darker skin tone. The politician tried to embarrass Imran by showing a picture of his supposed illegitimate daughter and comparing how similar they looked (I guess to childishly prove that she was, in fact, Imran's daughter). In the clip below in Urdu, Imran recalls that incident and snidely remarks "if I go to Africa, I can find a 100 kids that look like you". And of course the crowd laughs uproariously in approval. Disgusting.

    Imran makes a racist comment

    This was pissing me off so much. They were going to end 20 year old Sami Aslam for this dickhead.

    I just hope they go back to him now.
