On the death anniversary of George Floyd who’s brutal death sparked the “Black Lives Matter” campaign, legendary West Indian cricketer Michael Holding said “You will always have racism, always have racists. Getting rid of racism totally is like saying you are going to get rid of crime Totally. It is impossible.
Speaking on this topic, Holding further said that I can not force someone to take a knee in solidarity, taking a knee should not be an exercise that has to be ticked off the list, this must come from within.
Michael Holding further said that society is still biased towards white people and many people don’t get what black people are going through. People still don’t understand what it’s like to be under this constant pressure throughout your life.
He proceeded by saying that some people don’t even realize the things they say and don’t even reflect if it will affect anyone
