Elders have wisdom; at least that is a widely accepted traditional assumption that seems to exist in all cultures. While that sweeping generality is open to debate, I rise to applaud the stalwart comments made by our near-octogenarian Head of State and the line minister when speaking to the culturally rooted Council of Traditional Authorities (TA) in Gobabis this week. President Hage Geingob and our Urban and Rural Development Minister Peya Mushelenga have chutzpah.
Many white people are very quick to call “reverse racism” as soon as any person of color calls out the racist actions – however small – of white people. It is an almost laughable display of ignorance and privilege – for as it turns out, reverse racism isn’t a thing!
