    Former West Indies skipper Darren Sammy has revealed he faced racism while playing for the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in Indian Premier League as he was called "kalu".

    The Peshawar Zalmi captain said that he did not know the meaning of the word back then and it was only recently he discovered what it meant.

    "I just learnt what that kalu meant when I played for Sunrisers in the IPL. They called me and Perera by that name. I thought it meant strong Stallion. My previous post tells me something different and I am angry," the former skipper wrote in an Instagram story.

    As the voices against racial discrimination grow louder, Sammy has not taken a back seat and has been active in voicing his concerns over the matter.

    "For too long black people have suffered. I’m all the way in St Lucia and I’m frustrated. If you see me as a teammate then you see #GeorgeFloyd. Can you be part of the change by showing your support," he wrote, urging his supporters to act.



    Calling out the International Cricket Council, he said that he wanted to "hear" its voice and that "now is not the time to be silent".



    "@ICC and all the other boards are you guys not seeing what’s happening to ppl like me? Are you not gonna speak against the social injustice against my kind. This is not only about America. This happens everyday #BlackLivesMatter now is not the time to be silent. I wanna hear u," he added.

    Since the death of George Floyd, an unarmed black man, protests have erupted across the United States and the UK, with the masses demanding an end to racial discrimination.

    The protests, sparked by a police officer kneeling on Floyd's neck for almost nine minutes as he pleaded for his life, took place amid a roiling controversy over officers' use of force against largely peaceful demonstrators.

    Well, that is some RSS hospitality for you.

    Indians are white lackeys. That is for sure.

    Do Indians think they're all fair 'n' lovely? There's an identity crisis at work here.

    If you call a white guy a chittu, is that offensive?

    Just asking.

    Since white color isn't considered mardana here. Including by some macho rascits of pdf.

    Does that also fall under racism category?

    this is not the 90s.

    30 years ago the small talk you made can lead you to straight to prison.

    i am just happy Siri is growing up in a much more aware world in terms of political correctness and stereotypes
