Chris Gayle still in denial about Big Bash incident

first_imgStill known for the infamous ‘Don’t blush Baby’ comment to a sports presenter during a Big Bash interview earlier this year, Chris Gayle maintains he did no wrong and everyone targeted him because he’s a West Indian. (I am a complicated person: Chris Gayle to India Today) Speaking exclusively to India Today on the launch of his book ‘Six Machine’, in which he lambasts former cricketers for bashing him for his behavior, Gayle says, “The criticism was unfair and it was largely from the media.” (Chris Gayle asks female journalist: Have you ever had a threesome?) When reminded that actually many cricketers too found what he did in cheap taste, he goes on to say that’s only because they don’t like the Caribbean swag. “That was only from former cricketers who have now become commentators. They are made to take sides now. If they had taken my side they would have lost their jobs. Some of these cricketers were worse than me.” (Chris Gayle back in India, dances up a storm with Virat Kohli) Despite the nearly universal criticism he received for asking the reporter out on live TV and making personal comments about her, Chris maintains the backlash was uncalled for. “Most people don’t like West Indies players because we are talented and we dominate on the field. People gravitate to us. Fans like us. We have this flair and swagger on the field. We can do many things. We are so multi-talented in all aspects of sports. When we excel, they try to pull us down.” (Why Chris Gayle doesn’t deserve to play in Indian Premier League anymore)advertisementWhile some in the past too have made the point that a cricketer for example from Australia or England could have got away with what Gayle did, there is no denying his behaviour was in bad taste and made everyone comfortable. It opened up quite a Pandora’s box on sexism towards female reporters and even athletes in sports world wide. Gayle became a poster-boy of such behaviour with many of his past skeletons too tumbling out of the closet. If he calls the Big bash comment harmless, certainly asking a reporter if she had had a threesome was not. But Chris seems oddly alright with what he did or what he stands for. “‘Don’t blush baby’, was a sweet comment. It was a compliment. The person I said it too was not offended. An ex-cricketer said ban Gayle. That cricketer (Ian Chappell) had punched someone and was even locked up for that. Flintoff called me a chop but he took sexual enhancers during a match. It’s all out there. You just check their history. They have done much worse than me. And they tried to bring me down just for a couple of lines.”last_img read more

Advocacy Group Flags Low Graduation Rates at Some Houston Schools

first_imgSanborn flagged Sharpstown High School, in the Houston Independent School District, in particular. It had the lowest graduation rate in Harris County and the entire state, at 54 percent, according to the Children at Risk analysis.It’s a dramatic change from just two years ago, when the school was held up as a model for the nation. In 2016, then U.S. Education Secretary John King visited Sharpstown High and highlighted how it supported students’ minds and bodies. Sanborn attributed much of the decline to the school losing a strong administrator.“In losing their strong principal, they lost all the mission driven staff that were there, the whole idea of taking care of the whole child has discontinued,” he explained. “And they’ve really just gone back to business as usual and expecting kids to pull themselves up by their own bootstraps, and that doesn’t work.”According to state data, Sharpstown graduates almost 90 percent of its students in five years, similar to the state-wide graduation rate. To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: X A recent report shows that some Houston area high schools still struggle to graduate the majority of their students, raising red flags about the region’s future potential workforce and poverty.In the report, Children at Risk estimated that in Harris County about 83 percent of students earn a high school diploma, with about half a dozen Houston high schools falling below a 60-percent graduation rate.“Really we’re talking in Houston about one in five kids that start high school that don’t finish,” said Bob Sanborn, who leads the advocacy group. “More importantly, if you start high school and don’t finish, that means that you’ve sort of doomed yourself to living in poverty and to really keeping that cycle of poverty alive.”Children at Risk uses a stricter calculation for graduation rates than the state, which estimates almost 90 percent of Texans finish high school.center_img 00:00 /00:53 Listen Sharelast_img read more
