Zelna Jansen not only looks at what drew her personal anger at the proposal from KZNH structures of the ANC calling for the exclusion of Coloured (and Indian) persons from BBBEE, but unlike most of us... the statement touched a raw nerve and made many of us angry... as a lawyer she felt compelled to make an argument based on facts and not on emotions and gives us her objective reasoning as to why The Call for The Exclusion of Coloureds from BBBEE is Unconstitutional.

The Anatomy of Racism

In his view of racism from a somewhat unconventional vantage point, Seth Randall dissects what he calls the anatomy of racism.
Contrary to our initial thoughts of it being yet another little trip through that well-trodden valley of sympathy-seeking white-guilt, his opinion is a differently refreshing attempt to step out of that valley and roam the plains of humanity.


The Anatomy of Racism
by Seth Randall

Growing up in Swaziland, I used to wish I could be black. It wasn’t because of any perceived inadequacy as a white person; it was simply that most of the people around me were black. This meant that being black was automatically cooler than being white. (Ask a psychologist!) And so it was for years, that I longed for such trifles as naturally dreadlocked hair, or skin that didn’t burn as quickly in the sun. The desire was child-like, and called no attention to itself – it simply was.
That is until we moved back to South Africa.
