FF Plus MPL says the MEC is strikingly quiet on the racist treatment of a coloured parent by a black teacher
Fred Norman Secondary School: Lesufi demonstrates his racial prejudice with silence regarding black on coloured racism
18 August 2022
The Gauteng MEC for Education Panyaza Lesufi’s silence on the racist treatment of a coloured parent by a black teacher at the Fred Norman Secondary School clearly demonstrates his prejudice.
If a white, Afrikaans teacher had been the alleged offender, Lesufi would have wasted no time in contacting the Human Rights Commission (HRC) and taking strict steps, like he did with the Hoërskool Jan Viljoen incident.
According to a report in the Sowetan (17 August 2022), a black teacher at the school lashed out at a coloured parent in English saying that she “did not like coloureds”, because they are rude.
The incident was captured on video. There is no doubt that the black teacher’s remark to the coloured parent was racist in nature.
