Columnist Palesa Morudu says Western Cape Premier Helen Zille's comment that whites are silenced with regard to racial discussions is not true.
Morudu says people may feel that they are silenced when others are frustrated and angry, but says everyone should be allowed to take part in the discussions.
Let's have a conversation that racial inequality is a factor in South Africa, and that restorative justice has got to put race in the centre of what is needed.— Palesa Morudu, columnist
Morudu emphasises that facts and history should not be distorted.
Let's talk about the reality of what is happening right now, that inequality and unemployment has got a black face and let's talk about what is it that we are going to do.— Palesa Morudu, columnist
She says the lack of leadership within the African National Congress (ANC) has made it difficult for South Africans to converse on the country's vision of non-racial society.
