    Things have changed now but it's no secret Pakistani cricketers were often lazy esp in the field.

    It's sad to say but there are some anglo/saxon/white people who are subconsciously racist, which often leads to strange comments coming out of their lips.

    Warne's comment of calling Usman "lazy" only reaffirms my belief that most Aussies are institutionally racists. Could be that I am also generalising like Warne as well but their players are often involved in arguments with the opposition. Aussies have a very racist reputation from Lehmann abusing Murali to there people beating up Indian students some years back. I do regard Australian's as being one off the most racist people on the planet no doubt about it. There are racial undertones in a lot things their commentators say. Under the mask Warne looks like a proper racist to me.

    This guy sounds really confused. On the one hand he compares himself with Mark Waugh who was also called lazy and then a few seconds later says he's called lazy because he's Pakistani.

    Khawaja does have the lazy David Gower-esque elegance to his play. Looks great when it comes off, but you look like a lazy knob if it doesn't. Can see where that part comes from.

    IIRC, this guy has brought out the racism angle a few times. IMO, he should pay more attention to his performances.

    You get a few mixed race marriages everywhere. Aussies have a reputation of being proper racists, google it. One Shaniera Akram can not undo that.

    100% true.

    In Australia, Aborigines were considered *Animals* by law! Law changed in the 80s I think!

    This.

    Khwaja would not have been in the national playing eleven if the Aussies were really as racist as he claims they are.

    If he had paid for more attention to his game against spin instead of playing victim card then he would’ve been much better batsman now.

    As of now, he is second coming of Chris Martin in Asia.

    Well he says he suffered vile racist abuse growing up in the cricket system when he was young and I believe him on that.

    However now he’s in the National team his performances on the field will keep him In the team.

    He had some magic form 2 years ago both domestic and international that made him a run machine. Let the bat do the talking then the haters will have nothing to say.

    Right, these same Indians and their media were crying foul about racism in Australia when their students were being attacked few years ago.

    This is a pretty cheap stunt by Usman where he plays the race card and accuse the pundits of being prejudiced. If he wasn't a sloppy fielder and a trainwreck of a batsman , he wouldn't be getting all this criticism.
    I assume he'll have lost the sympathies of the aussie public , the media and even his team now after this interview.

    There is a big difference between a few poor Indians students crying racism, and an Australian celebrity of immigrant background like Khwaja doing so.

    Khwaja may be an immigrant but is a product of the Australian society which, notwithstanding its racist undertones, gives all opportunities and allows everyone irrespective of colour and background to thrive.

    Were it not to be so, Khwaja's parents may not have immigrated to Australia in the first place. It is also the reason why Indians, Pakistanis and other nationalities still migrate there in droves every year.

    I would say that Khwaja deserves full credit for working hard and reaching to where he is. But playing the racist card to hide his own faults and as a consequence, discrediting the very environment that gave him so much and made him what he is reeks of selfishness, and nothing more.

    Khwaja should grow up and take a leaf out of the book of men like Moeen Ali and Nasser Hussain. Inspite of having faced racism and a difficult upbringing due to their immigrant background, these two are among the most dignified and genteel people in the game. You would never see people like them blaming racism in England for their failures.

    Crying out racism when the chips are down will only reduce Khwaja to the level of a fresh-off-the-boat immigrant lacking talent and social skills in a new home. He needs to do better than that, given his level of achievement, and be an inspiration to the loads immigrants from Asia who reach Australia with hope in their hearts every year.

    So stop complaining and start performing, Khwaja. Millions of others will give their right hand and a kidney to be in your place.

    If you feel racism there is nothing wrong in speaking up against it but I think this guy is just having a whinge. Aussies called him lazy because he was a Pakistani ??? Booo Hoooooo cry me a river, get out there and play, he was supposed to be the next Ricky Ponting but have been an avg batsmen at best slightly above avg....... I remember being at the MCG and white aussie fans were calling out to Symonds: 'run monkey boy run' years before the Indian monkey gate that's racism not this panziee cry baby crap, which this kid is spilling....

    There's nothing wrong with what he said, FOBs have a different viewpoint about racism as they come with the view of a grateful immigrant, as compared to ABCD/BBCDs who think more like the natives of the land, hence people often referring to me as a native Brit.
