SA Indians say things were better in Apartheid days, after seeing an old advertisement. Opinion.

If you look at history, you will find that apartheid was a time when people of color were oppressed in South Africa, however now that apartheid is gone and people are free, you would think that they would prefer that. However not everyone does, a group of South African Indians spoke about how things were allegedly better during apartheid, after seeing an old advertisement online.

The advertisement :

The Advertisement was posted to social media site Facebook via a group called "Made in Chatsworth". As we can see below it offers a hotel stay for just nine rand a day, with a whole lot of amenities included. That's impressive because these days nine rand probably won't be able to buy you a soft drink.

This got a lot of South African Indians replying and the majority of them shared the same sentiment, here's what they had to say.

As we can see, a lot of people spoke about how it was allegedly better back than, by saying it was safer and cleaner, with some people even saying that we have it worse now. The only question that remains is are they right or wrong.

My Opinion :

Personally I disagree with them, when we look back at apartheid and how people of color were treated and kept separately from white people, no cheap offers or old deals can justify it.

I would never want to be treated like lesser than another human being because of the color of my skin, to be able to stay in a hotel room for nine rand a day.

We also have to remember that even though things were cheaper back than, people earned less. It wasn't that you got to stay in a hotel for nine rand a day while making ten thousand Rand a month, most people probably struggled to make less than a hundred or a couple hundreds of rand's a month

What do you think of these observations, tell me in the comments section and follow for more lifestyle news as it happens.
