Johannesburg - ANC MP Judy Tshabalala has expressed concern about white youth feeling excluded from youth day celebrations, Beeld reported on Wednesday.

Tshabalala was participating in the annual parliamentary debate on Youth Day, which will be celebrated nationally on 16 June.

According to Tshabalala, there was growing evidence that white youth felt excluded.

"We ask for the white youth's inclusion in all patriotic and activist youth events.

"We did not save the youth from the shackles of apartheid only to allow ourselves to be fenced off in groups," Tshabalala reportedly said.

"We are diverse, but we are all Africans, and we need to destroy the idea that we have different statuses."
