BEE benefits white-owned companies, caller tells Eusebius

702 callers debate inequality in South Africa with presenter Eusebius McKaiser.

Statistics South Africa (Stats SA) and the South African Labour and Development Research Unit at the University of Cape Town released a report looking at the inequality in South Africa titled Inequality Trends Report.

Caller Nick says the BEE policy has become an issue of class not to uplift people.

It has become more of a class thing than race when it comes to the economy and BEE.

In order for white people to recognise you, you have to be exceptional. When we see a black man sitting at the top of a company as a CEO we understand they are not good but exceptional. That is the standard that has been set. White people can be mediocre and be okay and they will still be promoted.

Kekelotso, Caller

BEE has largely benefitted white companies. We know for a fact that for you to be level one you could be white and only have a few empowerment deals. The beneficiaries of BEE are white, it has not served us as black people.
