Race relations have become a contentious issue among South Africa with social media exposing racist comments.
Racism recently reared its ugly head again after Pretoria High Court judge, Mabel Jansen, made comments that angered the nation.
702's #FridayStandIn, Adam Habib, gave listeners an opportunity to share their thoughts regarding the issue.
Listen to the conversation below:
There's tribalism in South Africa. I'm dark-skinned and I'm from Mpumalanga and whenever I meet people, they ask if I'm from Zimbabwe before I've spoken.— Meshak, caller in Stellenbosch
I think in terms of xenophobia, I think there's a deliberate effort by Africans who are not South African who don't integrate into communities.— Tlou, caller in Pretoria
You can get government to come up with all these policies but it won't change mindsets of the people.— Marco, caller in Boksburg
Of course government can ban racism. If we could ban smoking in public then we can do something about racism. Smoking in public has become a thing of the past now.— Kevin, caller in Stellenbosch
As a nation, we missed the opportunity to get rid of racism during the TRC when Botha refused to go. He should have been prosecuted.— Ngoako, caller in Polokwane
