Long way to go before we are a rainbow nation

I was so shocked to watch national television broadcasting the horror that is happening at the University of Free State after black workers were humiliated by white students.

It gives a clear picture that apartheid is not going to stop in this country.

I would have thought that universities are places where transformation would be easier to implement but it seems that no matter how educated people are, you cannot change their racist attitudes.

Maybe the Department of Education should add life orientation and race relations onto a list of courses that should be compulsory.

While those students are too young to have been responsible for apartheid, they should look back and study the history of this country and how that evil system affected black people.

They should then compare it with the spirit of black power, the legacy of Nelson Mandela, Walter Sisulu, OR Tambo and Steve Biko.

There is no place for such racism in this country. Even in work places, white executives still believe that a black person cannot achieve anything. As blacks, we still have to prove ourselves to some people. And we call this the rainbow nation?
