“We will not be discouraged from fighting against whiteness and white privilege because they create unnecessary fear in South Africa,” added Malema.

He said that there appeared to be different set of rules for the different races in South Africa.

“I have never carried a gun to any march. Fifty thousand people marched from Joburg to Sandton without committing any crime, without shooting a white person, without beating a white person, without blocking roads, marching through roads dictated to them by the police peacefully.

“Those people are called fascists, but white people who march all the time in Pretoria, who are against the rules, 99% of them are carrying guns, no single journalist, no single political commentator calls them fascist, yet they are carrying guns,” he said.

Malema also pointed out that there were a number of white ANC members who still couldn't speak South Africa’s indigenous languages.
