There I was, enjoying my Sunday morning, reading about corruption, SONA17 and yesterday's soccer match at Loftus, when the below gem on Coloured culture caught my eye.
I read through the first few lines, and nearly choked on my coffee!!

Cape Town Judge Mocks The Poor with Disregard for The Effects of Systemic Racism in Bromwell Street CaseWritten by Bruinou.com
A judge in the Cape Town High Court on Tuesday displayed utter arrogance and such a blatant lack of empathy with a complete disregard for the poor that it raises concerns about how our judicial system is still frought with systemic racism.
Irrespective of the merits of the case, his attitude continues to uphold and is in fact a manifestation of the Systemic & Structural Racism which we need to eradicate.
In his spate of remarks, Judge Leslie Weinkove shows that he clearly has no clue or simply chooses to ignore the impact which Systemic & Structural Racism has on the majority of South Africa's population especially the poor who are being displaced in the case he is presiding over.

Die storie van Boesman Myt is veel meer algemeen as wat mense besef en hoewel 'n mens later agterkom dat haar storie hom eintlik net so oor die twee dekades terug afspeel, hoor ons nog steeds so nou en dan 'n fluisterstorie of ons sien en lees flinkweg 'n klein koerantberiggie oor 'n soortgelyke geval hier op die Kaapsevlaktes.
Denver Lopez vertel die verhaal van een vrou maar Boesman Myt verteenwoordig ook 'n groot getal voorheen-landelike vrouens wie se stories almal as persoonlike geheimpies gedra word sonder om te kla. Baie van hulle het dalk nie onder dieselfde omstandighede in die Kaap beland nie en dalk moes hulle nie alles van dieselfde gruwele verduur nie maar dat hulle met alle soorte beloftes Kaap toe gebring is en dat hulle onmenslike werksomstandighede moes verduur is wat Boesman Myt hulle storie en ja, ook ons almal se storie maak.
