You mean everyone should pretend that the natural hair is different to reality?
The popularity of wigs, braids is a good indication that the wearers are unhappy with what nature handed out.
Who bloody cares? The fact that you use a knife and fork is a good indication that you are unhappy with your hands. Why does it matter to you what anyone else's tastes are? Why be an a**hole about it? By all means lay out your legit issues about her and her utterances, but don't come here to insult the rest of us while you're at it.
A white woman wearing braids is likely to be attacked by those who think that artificial hair is their exclusive prerogative.
And again, who bloody cares, racists will be racists. Why are you in here having a go at this woman for doing exactly as you do?

Since the Bill of rights says no discrimination and the HRC has said they discriminate, I am waiting for the concourt case that I personally am convinced that Afriforum is going to launch if this Mandela poppie isnt dealt with the same as Momberg
https://www.politicsweb.co.za/politics/malemas-race-propaganda-not-hate-speech--sahrc

"The definition of hate speech is circular and has been open to a lot of academic critic but there is consensus that that is subject to an objective test. Our context in South Africa is not mutual. We suffer from hundreds of years of marginalisation and exclusion based on race. We still today live with the legacy of colonial and apartheid past. From the Constitutional Court we must take our societal and historical context into account when we try to determine whether something amounts to racism," she said.

Van der Berg stated that the Constitutional Court takes into account who uttered the speech, adding that the identity of the perpetrator makes a difference in cases such as the use of the k-word.

"The Constitutional Court is of the view that certain words or expression will depend on whether [they are] uttered by a white person or a black person and against a white person or a black person. In accordance to the ConCourt jurisprudence, the identity of the offender and target group as belonging to a vulnerable group will have an impact in determining hate speech and robust speech must be protected so that marginalised persons can convey anger and frustration at the systems of social injustice."
I want to see Afriforum convince the Concourt otherwise.

Who resents who now? Many of us can see past race and recognize people as people. Race does play a factor in a some things(culture, areas we grow up, language), we are all people in the end
If apartheid created hatred by blacks against whites then affirmative action/BEE is doing the reverse.

Only problem now is that despite all the perks and benefits of being black in SA, the individuals still lacks ambitions and true self made success that the racist attack against non-blacks perpetuates as a defense for insecurity

If it did, SA would've descended into chaos back in the early 90s.

Yes. Thanks for bolstering my point.

Back in the 90’s there were still whites in admin positions in various government departments that kept things above water despite the top positions already being assumed by black persons like heads of Dept etc.

Then after the ethic cleansing of non-blacks in admin posts things are starting to collapse now as there is literally no control, and accountability as the insubordinates now wait for their turn on the gravy train.
