Racial double standards

12 May 2014, 07:34
The racial double-standard in South Africa is becoming too much.  There's this belief that white people AND ONLY white people can be racists in this country.

It has really become PATHETIC.  It has also become painfully apparent that the majority of South Africans has no idea what the word "racist" means.

I am going to try as hard as I can to make this as clear as I can.  Hate speech from a member one racial group to a member of another racial group about said racial group is racist. 

If a white person says something hateful to a black person, it is racism.  If a black person says something hateful to a white person, guess what?

IT IS ALSO RACISM.  Big shock, right?  Black pride is all fine and dandy, but white pride is racist.  See the double standard?  Let me tell you something.  BOTH are racist.

Just like white pride implies that other races are inferior, so does black pride imply that other races are inferior.  Its a different shade of the SAME DAMN THING.  Get over yourselves already.
