The All Whites could be no more.
New Zealand Football (NZF) are contemplating dropping the All Whites moniker for the men’s national team.
The potential change is part of a wider process NZF is going through to ensure they are up to the mark when it comes to cultural inclusivity.
It comes on the back of the heightened worldwide awareness around racism and racial inequality, and the name’s potentially racist connotations, and RNZ understands the national body began gauging feedback on the potential change more than six months ago.
NZF chief executive Andrew Pragnell declined an interview, with the organisation instead issuing a short statement.
“As with many other national bodies, New Zealand Football is on a journey around cultural inclusivity and respecting the principles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi.
Oh what a load of bollocks. Surely not even the most precious snowflake gets offended by the name All Whites?
Do they think All Blacks is racist also?
Do we need to change the name of the women’s cricket team from the White Ferns?
