“Monkey” comments by DA woman a wake-up call for all

2016-01-14 06:00

The racist utterances by one Penny Sparrow calling black people monkeys is a wake-up call to fellow blacks who are members of the DA.

The DA is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. It only needs blacks’ votes but will remain a party of white, racist right-wingers.

Their behaviour undermines the gains the ANC has achieved against all forms of racism.

It was the people’s movement that championed the fight for a non-sexist, non-racial democracy for all. The ANC government also hosted the UN World Conference against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance in 2001.

We need an updated assessment of where we are in the fight against racism, specifically on the increased levels of racism and its impact on the class struggle. Because the system is in crisis, there is an increase in the intensity and complexity of the ongoing ideological war on class unity and the principles and practice of equality.
