Racists hijacked Black Monday

If someone told me that the organisers of Black Monday had ulterior motives, I wouldn't dispute it. All Nazi fanatics came out to play.

We were told that it was an inclusive event meant for people across racial lines. Unless you were gardener Piet Dlamini from Vryheid who's proudly AWB, there was nothing to suggest that black people were supposed to be there.

I didn't know that people still keep so much apartheid attire and flags. If you are black and did attend one of the events, I feel sorry for you. I once read a tweet that suggested that South Africa is the only country where the majority is terrorised by the minority.

Fikile Mbalula is usually never short of something to say but after the mayhem caused by those people, he had no words. EFF leader Julius Malema asked him why nothing was done to those who blocked major roads.

Some even remarked that if black people had blocked roads, Mbalula would have found a quick solution, even if it meant using force, but nothing was done to those people.

The so-called new South Africa is fast becoming a sham. These people showed the Rainbow Nation the middle finger. They could have easily harmed what was supposed to be a noble cause to highlight crime in SA with their misguided actions.

What is sad is the fact that blacks who reside and work in farming areas are also affected by these senseless attacks. Racists who hijacked this event may, in fact, isolate the farming community. Good farmers will become sitting ducks because of these racists.
