I just watched the interview after reading your article. It was more an interview than a debate. A polite interview.
I’m South African, so I can’t really comment but here is my two cents anyway.
- The only way we will ever be able to get rid of the racial devide is when we start having sex with each other and produce “wêreld kinders”(world children). It might sound like a joke but this is truly something I believe.
- They talked about a guy protesting the flag and anthem, and she made some comment about patriotism. I hate patriotism. How do you bring change when you are patriotic?
- And the last point and I apply this to everyone: We don’t know how other people feel and experience things. So stop trying to. Just listen and accept their feelings.
After writing this, I don’t even know if this applies to this piece but I already wrote it. So read it.
