West Indies all-rounder Jason Holder believes that racism in cricket Opponent movement should not be limited to symbolic support by kneeling before matches.
Holder said it must have some meaning. After the death of George Floyd of African descent in America at the hands of a white police officerblack lives matter‘ (Blacks’ lives matter) movement had started. West Indies were one of the first two international teams whose players supported it on one knee.
According to ESPNcricinfo, Holder said, ‘I had some discussion about it and I think some people think that this is an ineffective action taken before matches. I want to see some new initiatives to revive this movement.
He said, ‘I didn’t want people to just think that they are kneeling for ‘Black Lives Matter’ because that is the tradition, this is the practice. It must have some meaning.’
The former West Indies captain also urged the players to do more to take forward the anti-racism movement ahead of the series against South Africa.
