The ideal of a non-racial South Africa, where everyone lives in harmony, remains an uncomfortable conversation for many.
702 and CapeTalk's Redi Tlhabi on Wednesday gave listeners an opportunity to share their thoughts on racism in the country following DA leader Mmusi Maimane's speech on the matter.
Listen to the conversation below:
In my opinion, the typical DA member is very aware that racism happens everyday.— Donovan, caller from Roodeport
I'm not a DA supporter because I'm suspicious of what the party represents, but Maimane was so statesmanly.— Percy, caller from Joburg
I grew up in the 70s as a child. I know that I benefitted from apartheid but that wasn't my choice.— Katia, caller from Paulshof
Where do we start addressing this? I think we can get to the point of listening to other people's experiences.— Steven, caller from Springs
