"I am an African, black unapologetic. I will never denounce my fellow Africans." A lady says

 It is no lie that our beloved country is divided with hatred and fear of other Africans. There are about 2.3 million immigrants living in South Africa, This number includes other Africans, Chinese, Bangladeshi, Indians, Middle esterners who are not born in SA. Out of this number, only 1.6 million are Africans. The 1.6 million Africans mostly run small shops, vending, Service industries etc. The 1.6 million lay claim to only 0.00001% of the wealth of SA.

That being said, it is a fact that Whites in South Africa makes up about 8.7% of the population and control over 85% wealth. 

So when I hear my fellow South Africans claiming that other Africans are competing with them on dwindling/scarce resources, I say that your anger and outrage is misplaced. African immigrants don't own lands, don't run companies, don't own mining companies, don't operate trophy hunting companies, do not ship out capital to European banks.

I guess that is why many like this lady would think like this.👇🏾

The lady's post was recieved with a lot of mixed emotions and reactions, others agreed with her and others did not.

At the end of the day we leave everything behind, do we really own this earth or are we just caretakers of this earth?

Why fight and kill each other over something that does not belong to us in the first place?
