End The War On Racism…

Madiba vs Voortrekker Monument 16 Dec 2013

 

I have re-posted this from Bill’s blog. It has very particular relevance to all my people in South Africa, especially to those who are embroiled in their own witch-hunts and who live to fuel the fires of the exhausted war on racism. By continuing to partake in a war against racism, one wars against oneself, because there really is only one race.
