While racial intolerance may wield its ugly head in sport in general, the argument that most black players are played out of position to frustrate them is entirely nonsensical.
We need to think about capping executive pay and find ways of sustainable ways of reallocating that money to people who really need it; employees and the poor.
News24 asked young people to send to us their reasons for leaving and what would have to be different for them to return to South Africa, or not leave at all. The response was overwhelming.

We urge the SA government to condemn this colonial-style Ugandan law and to be as vocal about it as they are about matters concerning discrimination based on race.
We have many squatter camps where people of all races live who are very poor. You do not see all of them going around robbing and murdering people.
Etzebeth is a professional rugby player at a World Cup. To call for him to return to South Africa to clear his name if he is indeed not guilty borders on idiocy.
Brody the dog is the best part of this trip.
