"You guys talk poverty and how black people don’t save but you grew up with stokvel/mogodišano. You still can’t tell how your parents managed to send you and your six siblings to school. If black saving methods didn’t work, why are banks and retailers hijacking them now?"
Rami went on to remind those throwing judgement that alcoholism is not a race or a socioeconomic problem, it’s a human problem!
"Alcohol abuse is everybody’s problem, not a ‘poor’ problem."
"Some of you with high-paying jobs are functional alcoholics. Your PAs run behind you with mints. Expensive whiskey in your offices, then you come out here and cry about a queue? Then call your fellow blacks ‘them’? Wow."
