Racism must be stamped out in all shapes and forms
Forty years ago Steve Biko was murdered by the apartheid security police yet emotional scars still linger years after the incident.
The many years of official racial segregation continue to have a huge impact, and one can see a need for appropriate reparation in accounts from living South Africans of past and present for the horrors inflicted on the masses.
Racism is incipient criminality. Punish it harshly. Preaching supremacism and practising racism are repugnant and against the values we hold dear as a civilised society.
We must finish beloved Nelson Mandela’s work by obliterating every vestige of racism in our democratic society. Racism is present in the acts and attitudes of many people.
