Black player thrown out of AFL House for trying to make a complaint!

Post by Terry »

It gets worse for the odious sport of AFL. Another story in the Australian today about Black African former AFL player Joel Wilkinson. Eight years ago he went to AFL house with a 2 page document about his experiences of racism during his entire career.

So did he get to meet Gilty or any AFL head honchos? Was he allowed to speak to anyone? Was he afforded the opportunity of at least leaving his document with anyone?? No. No. And No. He was frog marched outta the joint by security. Yep. That's how fumblehouse handles racism. Throw the victim outta the building and forget about 'em.

Here's a few other shamefull observations:

He said, "The current AFL structure is anti-black".

During his career he was the victim of blackface incidents, racially aggravated and had mass crowd abuse when fans made animal noises toward him and called him a monkey.

He continually tried to challenge the AFL about racism. In 2018 he approached the Human Rights Commission about AFL corruption and racism. He complained to the Gold Coast Suns, the AFL and the AFL players association. He was ignored. By everyone. Every time.

His most telling comment was this:

"In 21st century sport the AFL has been by far the worst of handling racism of all the codes. This is documented and can be proven......" Sickening stuff!!

Last Wednesday he again walked into AFL House after the Hawthorn allegations emerged. He was finally allowed to speak with someone. I mean after the recent stories they could hardly throw him out on the street again. But what will happen? More massaging and investigations by Gilty? More propaganda? More throwing the black players under a bus???

So fumblers let's see ya defend, obfuscate or deflect this story! Away ya go!!!

Pretty sure his first approach was outside proper procedure. You follow procedure. Last Wednesday he had to have followed procedure otherwise he would have been marched out again.

The complaint to the HRC should have come to something. Procedure there has nothing to do with the AFL. My guess is that the AFL ignored it - but why didn't Wilkinson take it to the Federal Court?

I just wonder sometimes - people simply have to handle things correctly to get it done. That's how it should be working, but it's not. This is a wider issue than just the AFL or the others. Everyone has to do the right thing. If one person - and this includes the victim - does the wrong thing, nothing gets done.

It's a serious lessen that the whole of society needs to learn if racism is to be dealt with.

The scandalous racism of this white supremacist "sport" never ends. This victorian excrement is Australia's great shame.
