‘There seemed an acceptance’: Azeem Rafiq gives evidence of racism at Yorkshire to MPs – video

Azeem Rafiq fought back tears as he told MPs racist terms were “used constantly” across his two spells at Yorkshire and no one in leadership challenged them, and that club officials subjected him to “inhuman” treatment. 

He told the digital, culture, media and sport select committee: “Pretty early on, me and other people from an Asian background … there were comments such as: ‘You’ll sit over there near the toilets,’ ‘elephant washers’ … The word ‘Paki’ was used constantly.”
