Not inmy name

2019-03-27 06:00

THE article about Magistrate Ashin Singh (The Witness, March 15) refers. As a South African “Indian” living in the northern suburbs, I wish to make it clear that Singh and his ilk do not speak on behalf of the entire “Indian” community. I would expect more from a seemingly educated man. He must realise that as Madiba said, “South Africa belongs to all people who live in it”.

When will people like Singh realise that we are living in 2019 not 1820? It is no surprise then, when the equally racist Julius Malema claims that all Indians are racist. I don’t care who my neighbours are, whether they are rich, poor, black, brown or green, we all bleed, rejoice and cry the same. Nobody is born a racist. When will people learn that there should be no such notion as different races, because the only true race that matters is the human race!
