Hot & Not
Newly crowned Miss Mamelodi Sundowns Sharon Rose Khumalo’s speaking about her being intersex has to be commended. The beauty queen discovered her condition, similar to that of athlete Caster Semenya, four years ago. She refuses to allow society to dictate what she can and can’t do. We say bravo for speaking out for the many voiceless who suffer in silence. Racists such as Riaan Lucas – who posted the tasteless meme above after the death of ex-Springbok Joost van der Westhuizen – continue to take the country backwards. Any form of racism is unacceptable and each case that rears its ugly head should be dealt with harshly until society rids itself of those who think that their race is superior.
