Fallist says raising funds for waitress plays into false rainbow nation ideology

Two Rhodes Must Fall activists wrote a note on their bill for their white waitress in an Observatory restaurant in Cape Town saying 'we will tip you when we get our land back'. They later posted the story on social media allegedly celebrating the fact that she was so upset.

John Maytham at the time of the interview with a Fallist Mohammed Abdullah,, said the funds raised for the waitress, kicked of by a black politican was at around R44 000 as of this morning. But Abdullah says it has now reached over R100 000.

This is part of the problem, says Abdullah.

The fact that repatriation went to her is ironic.

Mohammed Abdullah,

Though Abdullah says the act by the #RMF activists was mean and unkind, he feels it should be understood in a broader paradigm.

He argues that the ideology of the rainbow nation and everyone smiling is a false one.

Abdullah says this incident of collecting money for the white waitress and the social media reaction is another example of protecting a certain ideology, an ideology of non racialism.

The Fallists believe that everyday circumstances are racialised and need to be understood in that way.
