    Confession #10: Tribalists and Racists, same whatsapp group.

    Discrimination is discrimination. Believing that someone is ‘less than’ because of their culture, language or origin is as bad as being racist. I am so sick and tired of black people complaining about racism yet behaving so discriminatory themselves. Fighting for equality, yet thinking like the oppressor. How will white people ever respect us if we do not respect ourselves.

    • Thirdeye, what you say is so on point except that you sound like we need white people approval to be. Your point regarding white seem to suggest that white people are supreme and therefore exemplary in everyway – however the truth of the matter is that they are divided as any other racial group. Our social challenges are the same challenges they share although at a much lesser degree.
      • @kwena, Well, that may be YOUR interpretation of my confession but that is not what I am saying at all. I do not think anyone who is discriminatory is supreme, white, black, asian, coloured. Discrimination is ignorance or in its worst form, stupidity. The point I am making is that we as black people complain about racism and campaign for equality, where the white people are the racists and we are campaigning for equality from them. Its the unfortunate truth that you might not want to hear, or else we as black people would just keep quiet and accept that our actions define our greatness. Yet, on the other hand we as black people display the same ignorance that is displayed by racist oppressors through tribalism. Hence, same whatsapp group. Discrimination is discrimination. No person is better than any person, no person is supreme, no person deserves more respect than another. Black, white, asian or coloured.
