The law is a blunt instrument for dealing with racism, says Eusebius
Rugby ruling body SA Rugby is investigating allegations that Springboks player Eben Etzebeth assaulted and racially abused a homeless man just before the World Cup.
On Wednesday, the Human Rights Commission announced it would approach the Equality Court after receiving a complaint from some residents in Langebaan in the Western Cape.
Etzebeth is accused of allegedly using a derogatory term during a row with one of the residents in the area in August.
Eusebius McKaiserand Aki Anastasiou discuss the matter during the open line.
