Following the explosive reaction to Helen Zille's tweet on black privilege, a social media post was shared, which detailed the meaning of white privilege and how a group of white females were enlightening the public.
Briefly.co.za previously reported on outgoing Western Cape premier, Helen Zille, and the controversial tweet that caused a stir regarding “black privilege.”
The DA will be taking action against Zille for her social media activity, but South Africans are still struggling to find common ground on the issue.
Twitter user, Angel Campey (@YesReallyAngel), shared a controversial tweet, which highlighted a document discussing the definition of white privilege.
Her caption read as follows: “White girls at the traffic lights were handing out these “free newspapers” to white people in Cape Town today. Explaining privilege and how we can be better. If you wanna know more: The email on the bottom is robotsheetCT@gmail.com.”
The post went viral as it was liked by thousands and attracted more than 200 comments.
The tweet had a polarizing effect as it sparked some lively debate.
Sadly, it seems many of the intended audience members were closed off to the ideas presented.
Many took exception and blamed the ANC for not being able to remedy the mistakes of the past.
However, many heaped praise on the message being conveyed and felt an added sense of optimism as a result.
