Do You Agree With Cambage Or Bogut?


Australian Indigenous basketball star Liz Cambage has confirmed she will compete for the Opals in the Tokyo Olympics after she threatened to quit the team amidst claims over "whitewashed" promotional team photos. Last week, Cambage posted the following message on her instagram account: “If I’ve said it once I’ve said it a million times, how am I meant to represent a country that doesn’t even represent me. Australia, wake the f*** up. I’m not playing these games no more, I’m not. It’s sad, the whitewashing is sad.


Your black athletes lead you everywhere. Indigenous athletes are some of the best athletes we have. An y’all don’t use them at all.” NBA title winner Andrew Bogut has criticised Liz Cambage’s ‘whitewashing’ argument saying: “Some of our most prominent people of colour, that play for Australia, Patty Mills and Ben Simmons, they’re playing in the best league in the world right now, they can’t even come to that photo shoot. I don’t think Cambage can, she’s probably overseas. There’s a lot of different factors that go into it, this is made out like it was a blatant effort to whitewash the photo, to make Australia look white. C’mon. Not in today’s day and age, you’d be an idiot if you’re running the AOC to do that, because you’re going to get blow ups.” What do you think LiveTribers? Do you agree with Cambage or with Bogut?

Posted by Iggy's mum on 19 May 2021 Reply | Alert Moderator [14] [0] coaster She was born in England and moved to Australia as a baby when her parents separated. Born to a Nigerian father and anglo Australian mother she is not representative of our Indigenous people. I think she made a wrong call in this matter. She has played for overseas teams since 2011 and enjoyed very high salaries and lifestyle. I am not sure why she is complaining about how she is being treated as I think she has a lifestyle many would envy. I do not think different nationalities are being under represented these days. Check out the TV ads and shows, actors, sports, models, musicians, etc. I think calling the race card is not helping anyone and can only cause harm. Common sense and respect by all is what is necessary to bring about a true acceptance of all colours - white and other.

So - by what stretch of the imagination is she "Australian Indigenous"? We will never get anywhere with wiping out racism for as long as there are people who turn the race card when it suits them - that is, to gain some advantage or publicity.

    What is wrong with people? Why are we trying to politicize sport. The best player is the best player, no matter the colour of their skin. If you want YOUR team to win, then you pick the BEST players to do that, even if they might be green with antennas coming out of their heads. We all play to win, but if we can't, then let's have fun trying, otherwise forget it.

    Liz Cambage is NOT an Indigenous Australian!!! She is not a great role model for the way she speaks and if she doesn't want to play for Australia I'm sure there are many newcomers who would be grateful and happy to take her place!

    I am oretty sure that in sport where someone represents particular discipline and country he/she competing for shouldnt be doubts about skin colour! Sports spirit is the main factor which should prevail

    Perhaps Cambage was just trying to get attention. She might have been having a bad day when she made the comment. I notice she later relented to say she would play. Bogut made some good suggestions. Obviously not everyone is available for the photoshoot when it happens, as they are overseas, etc. I think it was just a storm in a teacup and the media tried to make a big thing out of it.

    I think they both have rights to voice their opinions and how they feel and what they think. It is up to the individual person to form their own opinion and what they think. Freedom of speech I kind of can see right in both

    I agree with Bogut. If you did the number what is the percentage of athletes that are "black" in the team? So one person of colour would probably be the ratio. Case closed.

    Her father is Nigerian and her mother is a white Australian, and Liz was born in London. She carries two passports. Why does this question label her Indigenous? I saw athletes with prosthetics, an indigenous footy player, and some white athletes. I agree with Bogut.

    Calling the race card is not helping anyone in any situation. A Nigerian mixed race person is not "indigenous". The best person should be chosen for whatever the job is, not just filling a quota of skin colours or disabilities; who knows what the circumstances were for the photo shoot. Availability? Covid had closed borders? Pul your head in, Liz.

    She was born in England and moved to Australia as a baby when her parents separated. Born to a Nigerian father and anglo Australian mother she is not representative of our Indigenous people. I think she made a wrong call in this matter. She has played for overseas teams since 2011 and enjoyed very high salaries and lifestyle. I am not sure why she is complaining about how she is being treated as I think she has a lifestyle many would envy. I do not think different nationalities are being under represented these days. Check out the TV ads and shows, actors, sports, models, musicians, etc. I think calling the race card is not helping anyone and can only cause harm. Common sense and respect by all is what is necessary to bring about a true acceptance of all colours - white and other.

    Why is she described as "Australian Indigenous"? She was born in Britain. Her father was Nigerian and her mother was Australian. According to https://bleacherreport.com/articles/2791044-unapologetically-liz "She was raised there by two white women: her mother, Julia, and grandmother, Aileen." So - by what stretch of the imagination is she "Australian Indigenous"? We will never get anywhere with wiping out racism for as long as there are people who turn the race card when it suits them - that is, to gain some advantage or publicity. Everyone must be treated equally. That means equally - not equally except where a minority gets some advantage on whatever excuse. It means no token minority presence in advertising, nor in photo-shoots. So - Bogut, not bogus.
