Mzansi actor Atandwa Kani has slammed black people who take the easy way out of the land redistribution debate. He claimed that are “mesmerised” by some white people.
The actor took to social media, Twitter to be exact, to express his disgust over how some people react to the debate, especially when they say, “They [whites] can keep the land”.
It’s very clear how Atandwa feels about this subject, and he left no stone unturned in hitting back at people who speak like this.
He wrote: "I'm sick of black people who are mesmerised by white people who can either dance or speak black people's languages, to the extend that they say "that can keep the land". YOU have no self worth or respect! If that's all it takes, then keepout of this discourse, you ignorant shit!"
According to TshisaLive, people holding contrary opinions flooded Atandwa’s comments section of his tweet, but the actor wasn’t ready for to give in. He made it very clear that those who felt he was speaking wrongfully, were welcome to block him and he would be happy to do the same.
“This is very easy.. The block opton is something I utilise often.. So screw you and your temporary spotlight-seeking self. You won’t get any exposure or followers from me.. Bye.”
Last week, Mpho Letsholonyane slammed the hype around a viral video showing two white South African men speaking in Tshivenda and isiXhosa.
Mpho said this was not something that should be applauded because it should be a norm, especially since most black people speak English or Afrikaans fluently.
“In all honesty, this shouldn’t even be a thing. It should be normal. If you’re born in a country, the least you can do is know at least the native tongue,” she wrote.
A month ago, Briefly.co.za reported that Mzansi actress, Natasha Thahane, had opened up about the racism she experienced from her Russian room-mate in New York.
Even though actress Natasha Thahane left her job on The Queen to pursue her academic career in New York, and she's been posting all about her life in the Big Apple on Instagram, her life isn't all as it seems.
The young actress recently opened up to Drum Magazine about the racism she has experienced while living with her Russian room-mate in New York.
According to a report by TshisaLive, Natasha explained that she began to experience racism first-hand when people found out that she was from Africa.
