[WATCH] Eusebius McKaiser's response to Mazzonne's stance on white privilege

Well are we allowed to each tell our individual story or are we talking about the majority?

Natasha Mazzonne, Natasha Mazonne, Deputy chairperson of the DA’s Federal Council

Mazzonne posed this question while speaking to Bongani Bongwa where she said her father arrived here with nothing and was not priviledge. Read the full article here.

Eusebius McKaiser responded to her question and said the answer is the majority, because the individual story does not tell you patterns in society.

You cannot have a conversation whether it will be male privilege or white privilege, by talking accessibly about exceptional individual stories, you just cant. The white guy which is poor, just like the black male who is a victim of sexism do not tell you what the typifying experience of men and white people are. So yes indeed, it is about the majority.

Eusebius McKaiser, Show Host.

Callers also weighed in on the Mazzonne's comments. Rose said the topic on privilege makes her incredibly emotional.

On a daily basis as a black woman these subtle bullying and subtle behaviours in the workplace of people who don't believe you can do it because of the colour of your skin and are always looking for one moment to show that look, they actually can't do it, they are an EE candidate.

Rose, Caller

I'm so mad that Mmusi Maimane can be in a party and people can still not understand this. It frustrates the hell out of me.

Rose, Caller

Another caller, William said he saw Mazzonne's tweets and listened to her interview, and he finds it extremely confusing and disingenuous and her arguments are completely misplaced.

Completely misplaced in a sense that if you listen to the comparison that she is making between herself and her father in response to what Mmusi Maimane said, the two don't make sense at all.

William, caller
