West Indies legendary cricketers, Darren Sammy and Chris Gayle, have already opened their mouths about how they became victims of racism. But this time the family of Shikhar Dhawan, the champion batsman of Team India, faced a racial abuse of social media.
Shikhar’s wife Aesha Dhawan has claimed that their son Zoravar became a victim of racism in many cases. Even netizens have made hateful comments on his pictures, which is intolerable.
By giving an example of her recent post, Aesha shared a screenshot of her Instagram handle. In the post, a comment calling Shikhar and Aesha’s son Zoravar ‘black’ can be seen. The netizen targeted the Shikhar Dhawan family, and wrote: “Zorabar Son, you are black, you will remain black.”
“Amazes me that people are so concerned about skin colour. If a person is brown, black, white or yellow, what does it matter?” Aesha wrote in her caption.
“Funny thing to me is that certain people that are Indian have a problem with skin colour when logically and biologically brown skin is very normal in those parts of the world,” she added.
“It’s like you are only denying your self. And another thing is that the more you deny your reality, the more you are suffering,” she wrote.
“I own myself completely and so do my kids,” she concluded.
“GUYS IM NOT UPSET IM JUST HIGHLIGHTING WHAT IS THERE IN OUR SOCIETY. AND ALL MY KIDS ARE VERY COMFORTABLE TOO,” Aesha wrote later in the comment section.
Shikhar and Aesha got married in 2012, and their son Zoravar was born in 2014. The couple is currently at home with the rest of their family during the ongoing lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic. Shikhar and Aesha are quite active on social media and keep their fans updated with regular posts.
