Black players in CSA

This subject is clearly debatable and far from over Clearly the quality of any player should be of first concern The whole squad can be black or brown or any color they choose as long as it is the best player for that position and that the interests of the sports and the pride of the country comes first When a certain color has to be chosen just too balance the feelings out And that player isn't the best or he fails then what is the idea of keeping him in the side just so he can have a great pay day.  Firstly a standard of excellence and performance base has to be established. Then a base of persistence has to be established that is clear cut and exceptable to the standards of a winning country where winning results is the most important  category. In any country that wants to be the best, winning comes first.
But to use the term" player of color" in any situation is a losing formula when it comes to winning and prestige and the benefits for all of concern this is a whole country and its future and the benefits of being the best at what they do A 2nd rated team does not benefit from loosing just because of the term "player of color" rather a winning team because of "player of quality" 
But the champions of everything they do then the whole of the country benefits This is all about education A country is just as good as the results in achieving the best with the best Whom ever wants to play with the best will perform with the best at his or her best But to start using average to play for the best create a stigma that as long as you have the favor you just have to show your face and you will be chosen That no matter how good or how fair your intentions are is a formula for disaster Create equal opportunities create champions The hunger to be the best isn't limited to "player of color"
If the hunger is great in any color of player he should be the best and that should be the motto of the selectors

But to say a certain amount of players should be of certain color is to say we don't care about the well being of the sports or the country

There are far better ways to create quality players from any color The loosing of tournaments create the illusion that is ok as long as the quota of color players has been achieved So the instinct of honor and pride is lost to him/her or the country Rather create a new competitive team with young players of different color and let them tour the world to get the feeling of winning and create a culture of competition and the hunger to be the best and to play in he best team possible for the honor and glory of your country
Out of that group you will find that winning for everyone is just as important then to be the best at what they wanna be.
