After local singer, Danny K, opened up a can of worms with his remark on racism and white privilege, many others have spoken up about the issue. However, TV personality, Scoop Makhathini, feels this will not help black South Africans.
Danny K made waves when he shared his opinion on white privilege and racism. According to the singer, "not enough white people call out racism", and he encouraged white South Africans to stop their silence.
Since then, many people have reacted to his comments, and not all reactions were positive.
Helen Zille simply told Danny that he needed spelling lessons, which left him unimpressed.
TV personality, Scoop Makathini, says what Danny said won't help black South Africans, as reported on by TimesLIVE.
But that doesn't mean Scoop doesn't recognise Danny for speaking out as he did. Briefly.co.za learnt that he said he appreciates what the singer said, but black people must think for themselves.
Scoop feels white people won't acknowledge their privilege.
"Asking and expecting white people to acknowledge their privilege is futile and further demonstrates how black folks after all these years are still looking for a white person to solidify the blacks claims on racism and discrimination."
