RACISM IS STILL A PUSH BACK TO THE VISION OF THE NEW DAWN AND COMMUNITY REINTEGRATION IN SOUTH AFRICA

Perception must be where change begins from and not in handing food packs or clothes to our vulnerable black folks or colored children in need. This is good, but not good enough if we desire to escalate the agenda of grassroots integration and transformation. If I could be judged and looked down upon based on the colour of my skin and not based on my character or intelligence, then, something is still fundamentally flawed with the architectural framework of how many in our society think and see themselves and others. My call is for everyone to stand up against the evil that is threatening the future of the community and loved one.
