- Aewon Wolf has joined a list of celebs who have came out in defence of foreign nationals
- The rapper expressed that Mzansi peeps who blame foreigners for all the problems in the country are no better than racists
- The star said those people who are against foreign nationals can't be participating in the Black Lives Matter movement while attacking other black people
Aewon Wolf has called South Africans out who are against black foreign nationals.
The topic about xenophobia has divided South Africans on social media platforms with some defending foreign nationals while others want government to get rid of them.
Adding his two cents, the rapper expressed that Mzansi peeps who blame foreign nationals for all the problems in the country are "no better than racists".
"Racists feel justified in assuming black people are criminals cause when they come across a crime, it’s a black perpetrator. So would they be right in blaming their problems on all black people? Well, that’s what you are doing with foreigners? So again you are no better than racists!
"If you don’t see how this put #PutSouthAfricansFirst is the same as the racist #MAGA slogan then do some research. You can’t be saying black lives matter yet you yourself attack and hate some black people based on stereotypes and pre-conceived ideas. You no better than racists!"
He emphasised that those who post inflammatory statements on social media should be held accountable if foreign nationals get harmed.
"So if you trying to gain favour by simplifying and blaming all our countries problems on 'foreigners' and if the people are killed or harmed because you don’t see how your statements are problematic! Then you have blood on your hands and no better than racists!!!"
Briefly.co.za reported that some tweeps were not happy with Pearl Thusi after she came out in defence of foreigners.
The star said she would never support any movement that was aimed at ridding Mzansi of African foreign nationals.
The actress did not back down and took to Twitter to let peeps know that she was "clearly" not planning to fall.
