Blacks still suffering

2015-05-21 06:00

Since South Africa proudly markets itself as a rainbow nation, great effort is lmade to address the questions of perennial race problems.

A fragile collective identity that displays a character of pretence; that which behind closed doors, one’s opinion on the subject distantly differs.

We were made to forget in order to forge a simulacrum of phoney diversity, forced to hold hands while our wounds still leaks blood of yesterdays struggle. Without any doubt, blacks are still enslaved under the broader context of democracy; by the inhumanity of democratic system.

it is now that racial tension between whites and blacks triggers social unrest. Whites sighed with relief that it was all over; that they were non-identical objects to the blames of oppressing the native peoples.

However: the blood stains of yesteryears victims at the arena of apartheid, provokes the muscles of the black masses. Our motive was deceived by the mass earned spectacles with converging lenses, that shows afar utopia on near vision. Yet, they hadn’t lost touch with forms of superiority; as keenly observed by my phrase: “Once earned cruel superiority, one will always demand the honour, even in the field of just.”

For too long, blacks became more suspicious of whites behaviour; carefully scanning existence of racist attitudes that they can use to justify the presence of apartheid’s fragmentation.

When are we going to fully step up to our truly collective identity? We need to purge our sport of racism
