LETTERS: Tackle other issues too

2016-02-04 06:00

Yes, lets talk about racism but why it is not urgent to speak about the disastrous role of taverns in black communities? This week 5 kids died in a shack because their mother had gone to the tavern. Limpopo police reported 6 murders linked to taverns. And how about expressing horror at the fact that girls in black communities no longer play sport or why people in those communities can just burn a library or clinic when they are angry about something, and simply go home afterwards?

Or do you perhaps know about a mob that went to trial for burning a library?
