When Darren Sammy responded to Swara Bhasker’s tweet, read details

No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin or his background or his religion. People learn to hate and if they can learn to hate, they can also be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.

The racist attitude to judge people on their caste, creed and colour is still witnessed these days. It is indeed shameful to see racist incidents are present in society.

Why do we fail to understand or remember that there is a lot more beyond the skin colour? The only thing that matters is talent, skill, positive thinking, the attitude of the person.

During IPL 2020 season, former West Indies’ captain Darren Sammy, claimed that he was subjected to racism during his stint with Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in the Indian Premier League (IPL).

Taking to his Twitter handle, he wrote, “I’m please to say that I’ve had a really interesting conversation with one of the guys and we are looking at ways to educate rather than focusing on the negatives. My brother reassured me that he operated from a place of love and I believe him.”

After that, Swara Bhasker came up with a tweet demanding an apology from Darren Sammy’s former IPL franchise Sunrisers Hyderabad.

“Dear @darensammy88 if someone used the N word at a black person & said they “operated from a place of love” what would u say? Same with word ‘Kaalu’ & it’s variations. And team members of @SunRisers. Show some decency & spine #SaySorryToDaren officially! #thatsnotcricket @IPL,” Swara tweeted.

Meanwhile, Darren Sammy replied, “Don’t get me wrong I’m not condoning what was done/said. I’m saying let’s use this opportunity to educate each other so it doesn’t happen again. One can only apologize if he/she feels wrong about something. I’m confident&proud to be black. That will never change.”
