a “proud” day for South Africa

The controversial painting has now been defaced.
2 Men (the one white and the other black) were arrested.
People are marching in protest against the gallery, demanding it be removed.
The ANC’s court case is going ahead to force the gallery to remove the artwork…

A 17 year-old mentally challenged girl was gang raped & the video went viral.
No one marched.

An 8-year-old girl was raped by a 15 year-old boy & her eyes gouged out.
No one marched.

Entire provinces are still without school text books – it’s almost mid-year already.
No one has marched.

Our imminent police chief is a gangster & has brought our police service to its knees.
No one has marched.

Our country has one of the highest unemployment rates in the world.
No one has marched.

Our democracy is going down the toilet and still no one marches.

But our country goes hysterical over a painting! We threaten lawsuits, protests & violent reprisals.
Where are our priorities?
What are we thinking?!

We have now proven beyond doubt that our collective mentality does not rise above the waist. So sad for a country that is ripe with so much potential.
