It didn’t much for South Africans to get on the race bandwagon. Behind the joy of singing Shosholoza or mumbling our way through bits of the national anthem, the hate it seems just put on bright colours and waited.

Jessica Leandra, Tshidi and this prized moron Ken Sinclair are all young South Africans who have had a fairly easy life under the new dispensation. They have lived, mostly in a democratic South Africa. So why all the angry hateful tweets?

Ken_Sinclair

I received Sinclair’s screen dumps via email after he went mal on Facebook. Three morons who should be steralised. We have given them fame by exposing their displays of generations of in-breeding and their prejudices.

Maybe social media stripped us of the manners that were holding it all together when we wondered how the miracle of the new South Africa came along. As much as we all should have ignored it, I think secretly we were shocked at the balls of these kids. Sure they acted like a bunch of discarded foreskins, but to have the balls to say what they did exhibits supreme ignorance and stupidity.

We must stamp it out. No tolerance, no exceptions. Whatever the circumstances, we must stamp out the habit reducing people to race, labelling an entire group of people on the basis of minority’s idiotic behaviour.

I don’t know what the solution is, people of all races seems to be comfortable as racists. I suppose we truly the Rainbow nation. Yet there are so many people, like my colleagues who don’t give a rat’s anus about the colour of your skin that to see this sort of behaviour really shocks me. If we want to live in a society where this sort of thing is a relic of the past, then stamp it out, make it known to the people in your circle that it is unacceptable.

We must want for every South African what we want for ourselves. Only then will be assured of the safety of our young democracy.

Racism

Behind the safety of their screens, people feel brave enough to air our their real views. Their comments, along with the responses, gives insight into just how rampant racism is in our society - even among young people who were supposed to be SA's new start into a non-racialised, free society.

Organ Harvester, good article. Katie Melua sings " if a black man is racist, is it the white man's racism that made him so?" I fought racism in the trenches cos im non racist not multiracist, big difference. Ken, its muthers like you that will pay!

Zomg-unfair...?

It's similar to the "Take Back wall-street", young disenfranchised and generally 'comfortable' citizens feel hard done by because they are less well off than their parents.

In High School I remember hearing lots of complaints about B.E.E and A.A, saying how they would leave the country ASAP.

I was mildly disheartened, but secured a scholarship, etc, regardless - as a white private schooled individual, so it boils down to:

Self pity and self-defeating attitudes. The result? Take out your bitterness on others who are 'better off' in your eyes (despite the massive economic disparity).

(Finally, cultural ignorance, and applying western social cues to *truly* African social practices results in mistakes such as 'arrogance' and 'rudeness' being perceived when it is not intended).
