British ministers call for ban on Zimbabwe cricket team!

Check it out here:

Well, the reason for banning one of the best cricket teams in the world, by the ministers is idiotic! How about banning Britain from international cricket due to racial discrimination??

The support for people in Zimbabwe suffering is commendable, but not at the cost of banning the cricket team from playing. If the authorities are so concerned, they should be directly dealing with the guy - Mr. Mugabe.

Also, racial discrimination doesnt only occur when you ridicule black people in an all-white country. It also occurs when due to something unfortunate that happened in a country, people like Ian Blair hastily ask their police personnel to target "suspicious-looking" people and shoot them point blank. And then they shoot an innocent guy just because he looked "Asian", spin a fiction around it, and when the truth is out, they say "Oh sorry, wrong guy by mistake". Will this sorry answer the anger and pain the family members of the slain person have gone through? No!!

So, the moral of the story: First take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your neighbour's eye.

Britain needs to clean its own backyard, before complaining about weeds and trash in it's neighbour's backyard.
