Racism is really becoming a pandemic in South Africa. One always has to watch what they say or you will find yourself being called a racist. One of the recent incidents of racism was with the DA on their local government election campaign. The party was acused of being racist after they put up a poster that was indicating that they support people of Phoenix for protecting their community and they called them heroes while they accused the ANC of calling them as racists.
