Kathrada Foundation: Create a safe space for South Africans to talk about race

The Nelson Mandela Foundation, Ahmed Kathrada Foundation and other various groups under the Anti-Racism Network of South Africa banner, have been running an anti-racism campaign which ends on Tuesday.

Vadi says people need to reflect on their daily remarks.

It is important that we create safe space for people to have conversations about racism.

Listen to the full interview below for more details...

702 welcomes all comments that are constructive, contribute to discussions in a meaningful manner and take stories forward.

However, we will NOT condone the following:

  • Racism (including offensive comments based on ethnicity and nationality)
  • Sexism
  • Homophobia
  • Religious intolerance
  • Cyber bullying
  • Hate speech
  • Derogatory language
  • Comments inciting violence.

We ask that your comments remain relevant to the articles they appear on and do not include general banter or conversation as this dilutes the effectiveness of the comments section.

We strive to make the 702 community a safe and welcoming space for all.

702 reserves the right to: 1) remove any comments that do not follow the above guidelines; and, 2) ban users who repeatedly infringe the rules.

Should you find any comments upsetting or offensive you can also flag them and we will assess it against our guidelines.

702 is constantly reviewing its comments policy in order to create an environment conducive to constructive conversations.
