[WATCH] Bongani Bingwa questions the consistency of our principles

Breakfast Show host Bongani Bingwa on Tuesday questioned how consistent we are n condemning the things we dislike, particularly when they are close to home.

He also asks whether we condemn abuse when the people accused are our family members.

He says it's easier to condemn acts committed by people who look a certain way, or different from us or not close to us.

Talk is cheap. It's the easiest thing to condemn things that don't cost you anything.Or at least where doing so might even be to your benefit. But that doesn't mean you actually stand for the principle.

Bongani Bingwa, Breakfast Show host

Principle should cost you. It is almost never convenient. And certainly, it is not easy.

Bongani Bingwa, Breakfast Show host

How consistent are you in your condemnation of the things you would have us believe are complete anathema to you?
