Black Panther actor Atandwa Kani has penned an angry open letter to racists from all over the world.
The star, who played the part of King T'Chaka in the movie, took to social media to vent his frustrations over the recent cases of brutality, injustices and inequality that people of colour have been subjected to.
The SA-born actor's views were triggered by the recent death of George Floyd, an African American who died in hospital after a white police officer knelt on his neck for almost nine minutes.
Joining the Black Lives Matter movement, Atandwa accused racists of being "rogues" who fight to be owners of "any land".
"Dear white people: F*ck your discomfort! F*ck you and your entitlement (whether you understand it or not)... F*ck all of you who fight to be the owners of any land: you rogue, homeless, evil, inhuman, useless pieces of spiteful a*sh*les. Take offence! I dare you Satan!"
Atandwa suggested that people of colour don't want revenge but want their rights as humans to be recognised.
"Black and brown people in the divided States of white America, South Africa and all around the world have never wanted revenge over equality, fairness and respect for our lives. That is quickly being altered by the racist ignorant white inhuman beasts with no hearts."

Atandwa said racism should be made illegal. He refused to be one of the many black people who have been captured on cellphone cameras being killed.
"I refuse to be one of the many black men and women shown in a video being killed."
Briefly.co.za reported that award-winning The Daily Show host, Trevor Noah, likened cellphone cameras to South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation Commission. The comedian said the truth about systemic racism in the US has been coming out via footage recorded on cellphones.
