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.
