Mzansi rapper, Reason, took to social media to share an idea with his followers on how to grow the economy in South Africa.
The rapper made a valid point that if taken into consideration, might benefit a number of people in this country. Reason suggested that the best way to give back for taking the land would be to establish a White Privilege Empowerment (WPE).
According to SA Hip Hop magazine, Reason referred to Black Economic Empowerment (BEE), which is a racially inclusive programme that was launched by the SA government to address the inequalities of apartheid by giving black South African citizens economic privileges that are already available to whites. Reason suggested that the White Privileged Empowerment should be in a form of white business owners who make billions of Rands to invest in black businesses.
He tweeted: "The same they need #BEE. We need #WPE! White Privileged Empowerment. If you’re white, and your company is making a billion, then you have to invest in black business. only. That’s a good way of “giving the land back”. #BrainFart"
Although Reason’s tweet hasn’t received the attention it should, it is hoped those who have seen it will believe in the idea, which can benefit a lot of black people.
Here are a few comments from his tweet:
