Cambage article on The Ringer

Am personally not a Cambage fan, but the article was well written and would be worth a look for most.

Agreed! Same thoughts. Although I found it contradictory how she said she'd never experienced racism till she went to the US and then later she was saying how she feels like she's suppressed when she talks about it here.

I don't think she said she hadn't experienced it, she said she didn't understand / wasn't able to define some of her life experiences. Now she does and speaks out she feels supressed when she speaks out.

I'm also not a Cambage fan, shes an amazing player but has some difficult antics on court, I enjoyed the article and it gave a little insight and context into her.

She's old enough to not be a dickhead. At 27 years old there shouldn't be any excuses for her bullshit

Obviously neither of you have never experienced the intergenerational effects of colonialism and current racist attitudes. Whilst I was not there, nor even my grandparents, I still see and experience the division established by colonial settlers on my ancestors lands and entitlement created for whites/Europeans (I'm Maori btw) in every area of education, employment, land use, media representation or lack thereof, traditions and culture, and the list goes on.
