Ya hey…this whole Woolworths racist employment claims thing is starting to grind my tits. I didn’t get into a whole debate in my first post HERE and i’m not gonna get into one now. Bottom-line…a whole lot of people are getting their prawn cocktail panties in a bunch because they think that Woolworths are not hiring any white staff at all throughout the entire company. Tannie number 1 tells tannie number 2 that Woolies is disgusting and practicing reverse racism so tannie number 2 jumps on the bandwagon without questioning and before you know it everyone in Orania is on a crusade to boycott Woolworths oblivious to the fact that a few decades ago it was law to deny black people jobs and in a bid to correct the imbalance this caused, Woolies (along with many other big companies in SA) instituted a policy, in accordance with the Employment Equity Act, to designate SOME positions where there is under-representation to EE groups….and these groups include women and disabled people, not just non-whites.
You see…now they got me ranting again and i didn’t wanna get into that. As the headline says i merely wanted to tell you that Woolworths has shut down it’s Facebook wall to the public because it’s being flooded with comments that they are calling a ‘campaign of hate speech’.
Right, now can we please move along.
It’s Friday ffs.
Folks need to either calm their sh*t or if you really are serious about boycotting Woolies then don’t just stop there…go boycott every other company in SA that is trying to fill under-represented vacant posts. Good luck with that. Or better yet…go boycott ALL the companies that supported the Apartheid regime for decades.
Actually, scratch that last thought..it’s way too complicated. Instead, just open a newspaper or go read a few things so that next time tannie 1 tells you something you actually have your own opinion instead of blindly taking what she says as gospel.
