Racism SA 2016: What Is and Isn't

I am sure by now that we have all had our fill of the furore around the Penny Sparrow sage... you can all read the details here as well as many, many, many other posts about it all. This is the post:

For calling black people monkeys Ms Sparrow has received death threats, has been charged by multiple political parties and individuals and has been lambasted in the media and on Facebook as the queen of racism.

However, this post, by a one Velaphi Vel-hove Khumalo is apparently not according the majority of comments on this News24 Facebook thread... (please take note that News24 is showing their anti-white bias by saying the comment was 'racist' in the headline)

This is apparently perfectly acceptable and a view shared by many black posters... here are just a few I managed to screencap last night:

The traditional double standard has set off 2016 quite well it seems according to this article in the Citizen - white racism is the problem. Not the calling for genocide or mass murder of whites - that is perfectly acceptable and a reasonable response to being called monkeys.  You will note in the Citizen article above that they make specific reference to "In 2012, model Jessica Leandra Dos Santos, was dropped by sponsors after she tweeted about wanting to punch a k***** for being “arrogant and disrespectful”." No mention is made of when Tshidi Thamana tweeted "Dear Mr Peter Mokaba?… I wish all whites had been killed when you sang 'Kill the Boer', then we wouldn't have to experience @JessicaLeandra's racism [sic]."

Double standards again...

And now the ANC wants to make racism a crime - opinions are to be a crime now if the racist ANC gets its way. I wonder how many of the black people in the posts above will be prosecuted for racism or is this only a crime whites can commit?

UPDATE: It looks like people have finally started agreeing that this is wrong and Velaphi Vel-hove Khumalo has closed his facebook page and is being investigated... about time.

Happy New Year and all that Jazz

I know that I am late with this but I was enjoying a well deserved break away from civilization with my husband over the holidays but I would like to wish you all a belated Merry Christmas and a very happy and prosperous New Year.

I hope that 2016 brings you all the greatest happiness and prosperity and that you are all blessed to the nth degree.
