Democratic Alliance leader, Mmusi Maimane, delivered his speech on race at the Apartheid Museum in Johannesburg earlier and if you missed it they have released it in full on Youtube.
Maimane started off his speech with
“Apartheid may be history, but the racism that nurtured and sustained it continues to this day.
Racism demeans us. All of us, black and white.
It opens the wounds of its victims, and exposes the ignorance of those who perpetrate it. It robs us of the dignity that so many fought for.
And racism divides us. Just look at us. At the very moment we need to be standing together, we are being torn apart.
It doesn’t have to be this way.”
Here’s the entire speech.
Anyone else get the feeling his way of speaking is more and more like Obama’s? Especially the facial expressions, the pauses and the way he smiles?
