Respect and consideration needed

2015-04-30 16:46

IT rips my heart into a 1 000 pieces to see the current xenophobic and racist attacks.

The idiots involved in such violence need to be brought to justice. There are many forms of peaceful tactics that can be used to resolve problems and the only way we can all co-exist is if we compromise and respect one another.

You cannot have your bread buttered on both sides.

Most importantly, people ought to educate themselves and come to their senses. Our freedom fighters sought shelter in other countries and many foreigners stood by them during the struggle. Many foreigners now seek shelter in South Africa and a lot of them come from either refugee camps or countries with worse conditions. They should not be ill-treated. On the contrary, and I’m no expert, but if need be, considerate quotas should be placed on foreigners coming in, if they are over-populating our country.

Apartheid has long gone. We need to move from racism in all forms or else we will lose our country in a way we haven’t before.
