Call to Counter Racism in South Africa

The Ahmed Kathrada Foundation says more needs to be done to counter racism

The Ahmed Kathrada Foundation says more is needed to be done to counter racism in South Africa.

In a press statement, following the publication of photographs of two white students from the University of Pretoria (UP) in domestic worker outfits and their faces smeared with brown paint, the organisation said it noted with concern the insensitive and racially stereotypical attitude displayed by the two students."

The foundation’s director, Neeshan Balton, says that, "The foundation understands that while the two youth may have at the time been unaware of just how demeaning their actions were, it raises questions about their upbringings, their education and what they are taught at universities."
