Only Fair Is The Color In IPL

Is IPL true cricket? From the looks of it yes, but it is also one hell of an entertainment. Cricket Balls flying to all corners of the stadium, batsman playing trick shots and fielders taking breath taking catches. But in this all bru ha ha we have our cheerleaders. Beautiful, jumping, gyrating and bouncing cheerleaders. Now it cannot be suggested that people who go and watch IPL only do so because of these cheerleaders, but it helps. But the serious question which we must all ask ourselves is why they i.e. cheerleaders are or white and mostly blond.

I have not seen even a a single cheerleader who is African or Asian in the last few years. Are they not pretty? Do they not know how to cheer? Or our Indian Public cannot stand the sight of Dark Skinned women as cheerleaders? Maybe in our minds we just assume all cheerleaders are white because most of them are when you watch American television or we just don't see any African American because the mind sees what it wants to see. We must either suffer from a serious case of Scotoma a figurative blind spot in a person's psychological awareness or we are obsessed with White Skin.

A couple of season ago there was an incident were two black cheerleaders from the UK were sent back. So now the best solution to this problem is not hire any dark skinned cheerleader’s period!
