    CWG: Swimmer calls Indian spectators monkeys ? Sulekha News

    Melbourne, Oct 9 (IANS) A swimmer participating in the Commonwealth Games in New Delhi has accused Indian spectators of acting like 'monkeys'.

    South African swimmer Roland Schoeman Friday night also called the Games a 'joke'.

    'Its an absolute disgrace. There's a guy in the stands just shouting, shouting, shouting. Somebody like that needs to be ejected,' Daily Telegraph quoted Schoeman as saying.

    'It's unacceptable to be at a professional event like this and have people going on like monkeys. Someone like that doesn't deserve to be here,' Schoeman said.

    'It's a joke. It's an absolute joke this event.'

    Schoeman spoke out after narrowly avoiding being disqualified when he and England's Simon Burnett had a false start when they heard a noise in the stand at the second semi-finals for the men's 50m freestyle.

    Officials, however, did not disqualify them.

    Schoeman later said: 'I'm experienced enough not to make a stupid blunder like that.'

    The term 'monkey' has taken on new meaning in recent years, with Indian cricketers sledging Australia's Andrew Symonds with taunts during Australia's 2007 tour of India.

    'Monkey-gate' then returned when India toured Australia the following summer, with Symonds alleging that spin bowler Harbhajan Singh had called him a 'monkey' in Sydney

    The Australians and British as a matter of fact are pinnacle of racism and cannot digest something traditionally from the whitey domain taking place in the so called "third world".

    Don't worry buddy the way India and China are surging ahead, the day is not far when 'third world' will become a phrase of high praise.

    We are working to change the traditional stereotypes you see.:yahoo:

    Not all the British dude, I have been living here for the last 9 years and have only encountered racism twice. Folks here are very tolerant of people from other backgrounds.

    As for the monkey comment, SHAME ON HIM!

    I think the term Indians behaving like monkeys and Indians are monkeys are two totally different things.

    The first term means the spectators were misbehaving. The second term is racial, suggesting the way they look like.

    Everything said and done Asim, an athlete/sportsperson at the international level must have enough concentration to ignore distractors and focus on the game.

    If that were not so, their would be no game called chess.



    That's what I call CONCENTRATION!:cheesy:

    Spectators ? what spectators?

    I though the audience blocks were mostly empty.

    Besides,if he is so concerned about the spectators,he should"ve gone into the entertainment field,rather than sports.




    If mere shouting by spectators can break his concentration

    I wonder how he'd react to such a situation:

    Don't discuss religion over this matter as it is irrelevant and an offense to the said religion. Please refrain from bringing in religion to such discussions.

    As far as western media is concern
    these guys have been keen to highlight minor glitches as full scale disasters
    They are the only trying to vilify the games trying to prove that a third world country cannot hold such an event
    They were quite during the Beijing Olympics becoz they were not provided the free access which we have given them
    and also most of the west barring USA is scared of the chinese

    :) as T-Faz said we should keep the religion out of it so no more posts from my side on that.

    But since you are so much ignorant about Muslims and our faith so therefore let me reply this last post here on this issue.


    Please educate yourself about Islam because pig is haram and considered a DIRT.Y animal. Nowhere in the world Muslims consider it sacred.


    Hope you educate yourself before you speak next time.
