The Jamaican took to Instagram to highlight his disgust following the ongoing riots in America.

"Black lives matter just like any other life. Black people matter, p***k all racist people, stop taking black people for fools, even our own black people wise the p***k up and stop bringing down your own!" Gayle wrote on his Instagram page.

"I have travelled the globe and experience racial remarks towards me because I am black, believe me, the list goes on."

"Racism is not only in football, it's in cricket, too. Even within teams as a black man, I get the end of the stick. Black and powerful. Black and proud," he claimed.The Jamaican took to Instagram to highlight his disgust following the ongoing riots in America.

Jamaican cricket coach Donovan Miller, who is one of the few black coaches on the international scene, agrees with Gayle that black people need to support each other in the fight against racism.

Miller, who was part of the England coaching staff recently, says he has not witnessed racism in cricket; however, he knows it is out there.

Miller, who recently coached the Jamaica Tallawahs, says cricket needs more black role models, especially coaches, if the minority group is going to win the war against the ugly disease that is racism.

"We need to do more to support our own and make sure that we develop our talent and qualify more people to take jobs across the world, because we don't have a lot of black role models as coaches," said Miller

“You could say from a very young age, the diversity of my country was grooming me to be genuinely “colour blind."

When I played cricket, the only colour I ever saw, was the colour of the ball.”

- Alvin Kallicharran
