Powered by Firework England’s World Cup hero, Jofra Archer has condemned the racial abuse he suffers “on a regular basis” – while asking the authorities to take proper action. On Tuesday the 24-year-old speedster uploaded a screenshot of the racial slurs he received on the social media platform Instagram a couple of days ago, citing that he does not understand why someone would make such comments. Advertisement Picture Credit: BBC Sport“I have given a lot of thought about reacting to this and I hope no one else has to deal with stuff like this on a regular basis, it is not ever acceptable and should be addressed properly in my opinion. I will never understand how people feel so free to say these things to another human being, it baffles me,” Archer wrote on his Instagram story along with the screenshot of the racial abuse on Monday evening.Picture Credit: IG/jofraarcherThe Rajasthan Royals bowler, who helped England lift their first ever World Cup last year at home, said the issue needed to be “addressed properly”.Advertisement However, this isn’t the first time that Archer has been subjected to racial abuse. During England’s tour of New Zealand last November, Archer experienced the shameful practice as he scored a second-innings 30 during England’s defeat in Mount Maunganui.“A bit disturbing hearing racial insults today while battling to help save my team. The crowd has been amazing this week except for that one guy. The Barmy Army was good as usual also.” Archer tweeted after the match.Advertisement Following the incident, a police investigation was launched and the New Zealand Cricket Council on January announced that a 28-year-old man had been identified as the perpetrator. The man was then handed a ban from all of the country’s stadiums for two years while being issued a verbal warning for using insulting language by the authorities.But Archer feels that isn’t enough to stop such incidents. The Sussex pacer who is recovering from a stress fracture in his elbow, last week, tweeted a link to a YouTube video which accused him of pulling “race card nonsense” regarding the abuse he suffered in New Zealand.“This is the most rubbish I’ve ever seen on the internet and it makes me sick to my stomach,” he said in the tweet.
