- Timothy Sekhukhune recently argued that black people only pretend to care for each other
- He said black beggars prefer begging from white people, not fellow blacks
- His Facebook comments sparked debate among South Africans
A young South African recently argued that black people only pretend to care for each other and in reality, they abuse each other.
Timothy Sekhukhune took to Facebook to make his comments, Briefly.co.za gathered. Writing in a group, Timothy said:
If black people care about each other, why don't we have beggars on the robots in their townships? Beggars choose where white people are passing through most of the time. It is rare to find a beggar in a township of black people.
Timothy went on to claim that black people prefer working for white-owned companies because "your fellow [blacks] abuse you, make you work without pay, or pay you with food."
The young man, who appears to be a Democratic Alliance (DA) member, argued in another post:
We must stop pretending. Black man is the enemy of black man. We must vote for white organisations if you need this country to prosper.
Timothy's post triggered a debate among his followers on Facebook. Some agreed with him. One commenter wrote:
When all can be like you, our chances of building again can really work!
However, others disagreed strongly with Timothy. One of them said:
When colonial education has damaged your thinking completely, you become even more toxic to the society that you are living in; you become more dangerous.
