Cricket Australia’s ‘cultural safety’ condemned as ‘deeply insulting’
Cricket Australia have received widespread condemnation over their rebranding of Australia Day in the name of ‘cultural safety’.

“Are they suggesting that we Indigenous Australians are that sensitive, that we are such victims, that we have to drop any suggestion of Australia Day to feel better about who we are?
“It’s like there’s this move to cleanse our history and … culture, and I don’t understand why we’d want to do that.”
