Nomboniso Gasa and her husband Raymond Suttner are one of the most prominent interracial couples in South Africa and their love started during a time it was frowned upon.

However, instead of viewing Gasa and Suttner’s marriage as a beautiful union between two people of different races, there are those who accuse Gasa of being influenced by her white husband.

As if a black person cannot have independent views regardless of the colour of their spouse. So, learned Gasa created a thread on Twitter addressed to Black tweeps, who think her views are shaped and altered by her white husband.

Gasa explained the man tried to molest her with his foot but she gave him a kick where it mattered. When he recovered she decided to give him another reminder that she is not to be messed with.

Gasa explained her mom and dad taught her to stand up for herself and fight when it is necessary, no matter who it is.

She then went on to explain why she wrote the thread in the first place.

Although she explained her point of view and why she wrote the thread, there were those who still did not agree with her. But, Gasa set them straight.
