Cape Town Steers employee goes on racist Facebook rant? [pic]
Posted by on Apr 12th, 2012

Spotted this over at Pharside this morning and apparently this kid who lives in Cape Town and lists Steers as his employer is throwing out some seriously racist comments on Facebook.

Here’s the comment that caught the attention of Pharside (SA’s best overseas blog) yesterday.

Wow.

Pharside points out that after that comment was spotted he went to see the dude’s full profile and noted that he lists Steers as his employer. I went to check the profile myself and his wall confirms his listed employer and also that he lives in Cape Town and studied at UCT. That and some more not-so-politically correct comments.

Mmm..if he does indeed work at Steers then they will have some splainin to do i’m sure. Not that it’s their fault, but still it’s not exactly an ideal situation to have someone you employ say stuff like that on a public platform.

It hasn’t been confirmed that this in in fact a genuine profile, but it does say that he went to Parktown Boys High School in 2010 so if anyone knows this kid and can prove it is indeed him then let us know hey.

And if you’re a spokesperson for Steers then get hold of Pharside and give your response.

If ever there was a justification for companies asking for access to your social networking accounts before they employ you, then this will be it.

That’s a bit of a dangerous statement to make, saying that he works at Steers and linking them to his racial behaviour. He might have worked there in the past but is no longer employed by them. If he doesn’t work for them, there could be trouble…

I’m not claiming he works at Steers at all. Just reporting what i saw on another website and raising the question. Hence the question mark in the title. And of course it has still to be proven that the profile is even genuine. But if its on a public forum and that’s what his profile says then something needs to be done no? Especially considering the comments he’s made.

But worse than all of the stuff mentioned above – he’s using an iPhone. SMDH.

Hey, if he hates white people so much…DON’T use the universities they built, attend ONLY classes by black professors, DON’T use iProducts because Steve Jobs was white, or Facebook because Zuckerberg is also white.

Racism makes no sense to me – how can someone be filled with so much hate when we’re living in one of the most beautiful countries in the world? It doesn’t seem like he’s had a hard life (Gautrain, iPhone, UCT…)

Natasha, pls stop shining on other people’s shine. Stop claiming other’s inventions you and your family are just like me, users NOT inventors.

What Natasha says is very true! Comments like this usually only comes from the people who actually live a hard life or used to live a hard life(understandable). But im sure the people in Cape Town will not be taking the comment very lightly…..

It must be a fake profile. He only has 11 friends.

Lol@ coaxel- if you were a racist asshole like this guy you probably would only have 11 friends too!

This is completely unacceptable. If he hasn’t been reported yet, he should be (if this is indeed a real profile) I know South African law as far as hate speech is concerned, is a little ‘grey’ but this is disgusting and should come with a penalty of some kind!

People like this should be shot!

Well, it does seem like someone reported it, his profile is gone. Good riddance.

Fake profile. I teach at Parktown and I’ve never heard of this kid.
