Shame the issue of racism seems to be endemic in our country and if we think we can end it we have a long way to go. In fact I don’t think racism can ever end in this country. It’s a sad truth - the only thing we can work on is tolerance.
It becomes more shocking when these racists individuals are not afraid to throw their racists comments on public platforms. We have seen this happening quite a lot in social networks lately.
Steve Hofmeyer has done it on his Facebook page and created an outcry from many South Africans. Recently a certain model by the name of Jessica also made some racists comments on her Twitter page. She was put in her palce by twitter people and she apologised. The thing was all over the media last week. It was even covered by Enews.
Now there is a chain e-mail that is doing rounds containing racists comments that are made by a Cape Peninsula University of Technology (Cape Town campus) student who is complaining that there are a lot of Black people in this country. You know what, read for yourselves…
I got this from TVSA blogger, Chix. She thought this needs to be out there for the public to see the reality of things in this country.
This Ken Sinclare person must stop being paranoid and stop thinking just because black people speak their language in his presence skinner about him. Why does he think he is that interesting that black people would just sommer skinner about him? Why is he so paranoid?
Who says what when they speak Afrikaans? You know I don’t get this thing of some white people who are always paranoid when black people speak their language in their presence.
You will find that in some work places black people are forced to speak English even if they understand each others languages just because there are white people who think when black people speak Zulu, Xhosa, Tswana or Venda etc they are talking about them like really I don’t understand.
We don’t care about them speaking Afrikaans in our presence and we don’t even tell them to speak English but when it’s us speaking a different language not English it’s an issue, like why?
This Ken Sinclair person must just go to the UK where things are the way he likes them to be.
