Media personality, Lerato Kganyago tweeted about how she used to blame colonisation for black people pulling each other down, but said she now realises it's just a habit they have.
According to TshiaLive, Lerato made that observation after she weighed in on the Nikki Minaj versus Beta saga.
Lerato sided with Nikki Minaj after BET threw shade at her over Cardi B's Grammy win. She believes the matter hits home for her as a strong Black woman because she said its always the people who supposedly support you that turns around and ridicules you too.
The tweet received a lot of backlash which forced the channel to delete the tweet. But Lerato still felt she needed to add her two cents worth.
The conversation then moved towards the abuse Black women are subjected to, and as Lerato engaged with her tweeps, she explained that Black people needed to refrain from pulling another person down.
"I used to blame colonization but this is just a terrible habit that’s clearly not going to go away and if you speak on it, you are the next target, I see it happen a lot at home and it’s really disheartening," she tweeted.
Lerato said as a black woman in the arts, who has to constantly stand up for herself, she can relate to what was happening to Nikki Minaj. She said she's seen headstrong Black women in Mzansi been victimised when they do not conform.
