It appears Rafiq is guilty himself of racism. The Daily Telegraph is reporting anti-semitic twitters he made in the past. Oh dear.

Are they tweets or private stuff? The power of the establishment when threatened in some existential way on display here?

The Vaughan supporting Telegraph digging through Rafiq's facebook.. interesting.

Good to see he's apologised.

No tweets. Same as Jack brooks.

People have obviously taken their time to bring them up or time to dig into them.

I think depressingly it’s a human issue rather than an issue aligned to one sport

It however does nothing to detract from the absolute disgusting job Yorkshire done to stop it or punish it.

The ones I've seen don't look like tweets unless that's how they looked 10 years ago?

Definitely Facebook, Facebook comments or messages

They more look like Facebook comments rather than messages

Edit - obviously not a lot of difference, but one is public(ish) and one is completely private

It was the Times that did the uncovering.

It shouldn't but that seems to be what this is aimed at. Unless I'm reading too much into it and it's just feed the beast time for the establishment press. Azeem obvs will have skeletons in the closet when he was 18/19. They shouldn't be used to discredit his claims of institutional racism at Yorkshire/within cricket generally. Someone is being paid shed loads to get the govt off ECB/Graves trust's back here

Facebook or Twitter, the Telegraph or the Times, does it matter? Rafiq has had racist tendencies himself in the past.
