Discrimination Against White People

with 3 comments

In South Africa, a company Vodacom only lets black people buy shares in their company. At the start of the company, both white and black people could buy shares in the company. White people were the majority of shareholders because they were the only ones who could afford to buy the shares. Then, the company took a new direction and required that only black people could buy shares. This outraged the white population because they are the ones mostly supporting the company. The black south african see this as a way to regain what was already theirs that white people cam and took over. I definitely see this as discrimination against white people.

  1. I agree with you. This is commonly overlooked because when you hear the word ‘discrimination’ people often automatically assume you are referring to discrimination of minorities. Although they may feel that it is just a way of returning what is rightfully theirs in the first place, it will just continue the lack of equilibrium in today’s society and widen the gap between races even more.

  2. This is pretty outrageous. However, with the many issues black South Africans have faced, this is very believable. Many of the countries in Africa have not surpassed the many issues colonialism instilled. Therefore, making it hard for positive race relations. Although its easier said than done, whites and blacks need to move forward and work together to ensure a better political system and economy, one that strives for equality amongst all citizens.

  3. this just goes to show that racism is something that will never go away not just in America even though it seems like it occurs more frequently here, but all over the world.
