South Africa’s president on Friday stated the “naked racism in the United States” and mentioned he firmly believes that “this is a moment we should regard as a turning point.”
President Cyril Ramaphosa spoke because the ruling African National Congress launched a Black Friday occasion in response to the “heinous murder” of George Floyd and “institutionalized racism” in the US.
Ramaphosa mentioned human dignity is a common aspiration and respect for it’s “the only guarantee of any nation’s prosperity”.
He identified South Africa’s enduring racial inequality a quarter-century after the top of the racist system of apartheid, and he expressed his “deepest regret” on the demise of almost a dozen South Africans allegedly by the hands of safety forces throughout the nation’s COVID-19 lockdown.
While he mentioned the deaths “do not have the obvious racial dimensions of the murder of George Floyd, they do rely on a similar contempt for the intrinsic human worth of the victim” and have to be condemned “just as vehemently”. The instances are underneath investigation.
