The furore over a video showing the racist treatment of black university campus workers in South Africa refuses to die down.
The video, which came to light last week, shows white students at the University of Free State allegedly forcing black employees to eat food that had been urinated on.
The footage is thought to have been recorded in September, and was made by students angered by a new integration policy at the campus in Bloemfontein. The policy would make black and white students share university accommodation..
There’s a lot of soul searching in South Africa right now.But is it an isolated incident, or is this the real South Africa? Billyboy Ramahlele, the university’s director of diversity, fears the latter.
In a country anxious to shed it’s divisive past, is this just another example that society can never really be totally rid of racism?
