Everyone knows of South Africa, but Australia was still trying to suppress her aboriginal people by forcibly removing them from their parents to white foster parents or institutions until well into my own lifetime. Of course we can, and did, complain about 4 lightening quick bowlers peppering the batters with short balls but that was really because the England team of that time had no reply. He delivers a powerful and inspiring message of hope for the future and a vision for change , and takes you through history to understand the racism of today. Within a year he had won a League Cup (Aberdeen’s first success in 19 years), he took them to 3 rd place in the SPL and they qualified for Europe for the first time in 5 years. St Derek Mcinnes looks more than likely to be announced as our new leader by the Reverend Martin Bain and sanctioned by the Arch Deacon of Failed Plans, Ellis Short.

Me and Albert sat there this morning mate and the pictures in my mind of the Armed Guards, the Flag Bearers, The old lads Proudly showing their Medals and the Young ones stood to attention whilst we all Remember and Respect, id now be in the Templar with a lot of the old Lads having a beer and a Natter but hey we can do that next year hopefully, we are the Lucky ones. But it is a point that needs to be made, again and again, that white supremacist ideology has permeated our society to such an extent that these stories and actions have got to be kept at the forefront of our consciousness. My hope is that his status as one of the most respected voices in what is - in the UK - an overwhelmingly white, privileged sporting context will make people who might otherwise dismiss these ideas take a second look. It taught me of the atrocities committed by the Australian ruling powers on the native Aboriginal Australians. This book was definitely hard to read at times, but I’m glad it was recommended to me and I’m glad I read it.A number of other sports stars contributed to this book and every one of their stories was insightful. Michael Holding explains how racism affects different places and people, what terms like white-privilege, white-washing, Black Lives Matter mean and the politics behind the movement. There are also gut-wrenching chapters on what slavery and other suppression of non-white peoples involved in practise. Black people are often afraid of being abused, discriminated against, killed, "they are afraid of speaking out or being labelled a troublemaker".

He was a superb fast-bowler who’s bowling could make grown men tremble, and is a very knowledgeable cricket commentator, so when I saw the short video piece he and fellow cricketer/commentator Ebony Rainford-Brent made in 2020 in response to the Black Lives Matter movement, with tears in their eyes and voices cracking, I was shocked. There is so much to do to level the playing field that for the foreseeable future it has to be BLACK Lives Matter. Now, in Why We Kneel, How We Rise, Holding shares his story together with those of some of the most iconic athletes in the world. After talking during a rain break in a cricket test match about the Black Lives Matter movement, former West Indian cricketer Michael Holding is persuaded to elaborate on his experiences of racisim, and the result is this book.Another has stepped forward into the pit of fire and declared he is ready to wage battle for the down trodden disciples and the unappreciated followers of the temple of Light. It is effectively a good 101 for the subject, and would be useful for anybody as a good primer for the subject. After talking about bad experiences by sporting legends and giving us a history lesson, Mikey also shows the way forward.

The book implored my thought process cause it shocked me to the core when I read about all the systematic deletion of Black History from our past, present, and future. If you think we are immune from this because we live in a third-world country, you are wrong my friend. Yes, I knew about racism and have read a lot of Black history and politics, but somehow these two people expressing their pain and shock at encountering such things made an impression. If you teach a young Black kid about Septimius Severus, the first Black emperor of the Roman Empire, or show them how the Moors educated and enlightened Europe, or describe the bravery of the Black Rattlers or the brilliance of Lewis Howard Latimer, what do you think happens to their self-esteem?ERDT will be using RiVR as a blended approach to delivering our courses, we will also be selling our training resources to allow your service to deliver your courses using our 360° video content and RiVR Link.

The result is a superb engaging, widely accessible exploration of racism, not only in sport but powerfully as articulated through and experienced in sport. They must have been wishing for Marty Mcfly to hit 88 miles per hour and take Moyes back to the time where tactics were written on the inside of cave walls. He speaks of the hypocrisy of folks like Thomas Jefferson who said 'All men are equal' but conveniently forgot to apply that to Black people. Particularly spoken by a white South African who was only playing for England because the country of his birth was banned from international sport due to apartheid.

This comes across in this, ostensibly sports based book, but one that is really an excellent contribution to the current demand for racial justice given added impetus by the lynching of George Floyd. Now, in Why We Kneel, How We Rise , Holding shares his story together with those of some of the most iconic athletes in the world. Even though the Germans asked them not to fight for the oppressors, the 'Harlem Hellfighters' spent 191 days in the trenches, never lost a single foot of ground, and never had any prisoners taken. The William Hill prize is given every year to the best book on sport in the UK, and it is the sports book equivalent of the Booker Prize or the Pulitzer Prize.
