On the field we saw racism with the ‘monkey calls’. ‘Off the field’ this is the first one.
The Cheerleaders won’t forget their trip to India, at least for sometime. First they were on the news because they were against the culture of the nation(that’s true, we never had cheerleader before to cheer our ‘Man on elephant race’ or ‘Spot the tiger and kill-hunting’ game). Then they were thrown around for dressing in skimpy clothes. We dressed them up. Now they are asked to sit out if their skin is black.
Two black cheerleaders were asked to sit out during a match recently.
The Cheerleaders are thinking about wearing headgear and dressing up without showing skin so that they wont be blamed for any of the three issues. Or better, to pack up and leave.
