“Many placards and posters displayed beliefs that we thought had been buried in 1994, with some posters depicting black people as baboons. It is clear that some of our white compatriots regard black people as being lesser human beings or sub-human,” Zuma said.

Somehow I really doubt this has a shred of truth to it - if it was true, we would have heard about it.

Clearly, it is just the ANC stoking racial hatred again - their favourite pastime.

Racism is alive and well in South Africa because of the ANC, not despite it.

Trying to deflect the protest from not being about you, eh Zumpy?

This is low, a low-blow to democracy. Again, populism having its way. Freedom is impeached by the ANC and its supporters. Banana Republic it is, no less than a circus.

“The marches that took place last week demonstrated that racism is real and exists in our country.

“Many placards and posters displayed beliefs that we thought had been buried in 1994, with some posters depicting black people as baboons. It is clear that some of our white compatriots regard black people as being lesser human beings or sub-human,” Zuma said.

...

In his address at the memorial, Zuma made no mention of any of the claims made against him, instead focusing purely on what he deemed to be racial elements.

“The racist onslaught has become more direct and is no longer hidden as was the case in the early years of our constitutional democratic order. Racists no longer fear being caught or exposed.

“In the fight to combat racism, we should look beyond only overt racist utterances and public displays that we saw during the marches last week. We should also look at the ideological and institutional machinations that continue to give racism more traction.

“Racism is a gross violation of human rights and plunged this country into decades of conflict in the past. We cannot allow and assist racists to take our country backwards,” president Zuma said.

People are listening, and many will believe the presidency, especially those under nationalism.

Much like his intelligent report, he's seeing something that everyone else isn't...
