In the copy pasted below you will see who I am saluting. Yes, like me who is not white (other than accident of birth) or black, or coloured, neither Asian, she is like me a member of the lost tribe of Africa - we are South Africans, not labour equities neither sports quotas -- simply put we are South Africans, a nation whose existence is denied by our own people and in particular by the ANC that is still trapped in the futility of a liberation movement that can not come to grasps with governance. And I quote from News24:
¨City Press editor Ferial Haffajee has taken leave as the racism row plaguing her newsroom continues to rage.
According to the Sunday Independent, an email sent to staff by Haffajee – that went viral - indicated she, their Flintstone editor, was taking leave and hoped that through this the journalists would be able to douse the fires she started. She said she did not tolerate white racists, so would therefore not tolerate black racists.
City Press CEO Fergus Sampson last week confirmed an internal probe had been launched into allegations of racism. It was reported on Friday that a group of journalists at the publication would lay criminal charges against Haffajee after they accused her of racism.¨
Ferial I salute you again for your honesty. Maybe our grandchildren will experience the birth of a South Africa whereas you and i must suffer the disgust of little boxes labelled white, black, coloured and asian thanks to the ANC beating the drum and many others too.
In being ignored and humiliated as a South African I will pass away proudly as a member of the lost tribe of the world.
