Just a heads up that I’ve had another piece published, regarding racism in the AFL. You might recall I wrote about footballer Adam Goodes earlier in the year – how his unapologetic stance against outrageous racism from fans and players cost him his position in the AFL. Another player, Héritier Lumumba, has recently had his career cut short by similar racial abuse. The fact that he stood up against racial slurs, sexism and homophobia in the sport made him a prime target for those who believe minority groups should be seen and not heard.
