Untold damage done

2016-01-20 06:00

I AM furious with Penny Sparrow. There are those of us who are working hard to build good relations and heal the rift between races, and then along comes a stupid, insensitive comment from someone like Sparrow, and it all falls apart again.

She has done untold damage, fuelled the fires of racism, given the ANC and EFF more ammunition to hurl at whites and tarnish us all with the same brush.

When are we ever going to be able to put the scourge of racism behind us and get on with working together to make our beautiful country a better place for all?
