One thing that people will probably ask is, how is it that this is even possible? Well, it is and it turns out that this white man here, Cobus Roode believes in what the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) are fighting for.
This might be a surprise to some people, but maybe it should not be because EFF leader Julius Malema has never said he is against white people, he is against white people who are racist, those who give and get preferential treatment and employment.
Malema is against those who were privileged under apartheid and took land that does not belong to them, the majority of the white people benefited from apartheid, that is a well-known fact.
We now have this white man who sees a place in the EFF, however, other white people are not happy about this, they probably feel betrayed.
Maybe Malema has never really emphasized on the need for a rainbow nation, he is all about putting black people first and some white people might have a problem with this.
Roode wishes to see a South Africa, where there are equal opportunities for everyone, whether black or white. But, as expected, there were other white people who attacked him for supporting the EFF, some went as far as saying that he was bought.
We know how South Africa is one of the most economically unequal countries in the world. It should not be much of a surprise that a lot of people believe that there is an alliance between the African National Congress (ANC) and the white monopoly capital.
Basically, white people are still reaping the rewards of their previous privilege under the new economic system.
So, can Malema be blamed for giving the black child hope that one day they might be able to find employment and create a better life for their family?
There has to be radical social and economic transformation in our lifetime and it is hard as black person to see that under the leadership of the ANC.
