- Lerato Sengadi has seen the world take a stand against racism following the death of American George Floyd
- While she believes we can achieve anything if we stand together as one, Lerato feels peaceful protests have no impact
- Looking at apartheid and where we are now, Lerato believes it is proof that protesting does little to nothing
Mzansi publicist Lerato Sengadi has preached the power of unity stemming from the uprising caused by American George Floyd's death.
Seeing the world come together to take a stand against racism, even during a global pandemic, has truly been something that will never be forgotten.
Briefly.co.za learnt that Lerato has expressed how she believes the power of unity can solve anything. If we all stand together as one, we can solve many issues in not only our own country but also the world.
Seeing the many protests taking place, Lerato did advise against this. Labelling protest action an “exhausting and often fruitless exercises”.
Lerato feels that peaceful protests hold no weight and are only effective for as long as they last.
Taking to social media to share her views, Lerato quoted Einstein to further solidify her point about protesting getting us nowhere.
“Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results, as said by Einstein.”
Lerato urges those South Africans who have stood against racism in the US to do the same for their own country.
“So what are we really gonna do? We stand in solidarity with our American kin, their pain and anger is very familiar to us but what are we doing for ourselves and the sh*t we are facing here as black women, as black creatives, as black corporate SA, as black suppliers, etc?
“As black people, sizo yenzani? I don’t have the answers but the magic is in the collective (irrespective of race).”
We need to stand together!
