The “West Indies”, The Only Totally Black International Cricket Team, Is Sponsored By A Company ‘BLK’!
Seeing this, without fail, cracks me up each and every time.
Come on. It really looks like they are taking the mickey out of the ‘West Indies‘ — and, alas, that is not too difficult to do.
Yes, as a extremely committed ‘West Indies‘ cricket fan of nearly 50-years, I know, well, that every black West Indian that plays for the team is PROUD to be Black. That is a given. And yes, of course, I also know that the team has included some ‘whites’ and a fair number of ‘browns’ over the years. However, the current International squad, wearing this whiteball kit, is all black. I just find it ironic.
BLK is Australian. I don’t recall seeing a black person on the Australian team, though they must have some talented black players. So, why didn’t BLK sponsor the Australian team. It would not have looked as incongruous.
