Re: Privilege

Well, interesting thread.

I, for one, can think of media and digital era, is here to expose the things like e.g. xenophobic attacks on foreigners in SA, well these anyway used to take place on regular basis in the past and nobody was caring the least. There was no WhatsApp, FB, Instagram, Twitter and what’s nots tools to manipulate pictures from different places in Africa and make us believe it is what it is and escalate it globally. You gotta check all facts first before you will start drawing your own conclusions. Populism and scaremongering working at it’s best. Sure, there are underlying problems in every society but actions speak louder than pictures!

Just an example of fake Mugabe’s coffin that circulated on media.

Another example, latest strain of xenophobic attacks taking place in South Africa:

Basically, there is so much bullshit surrounding the media and you have to decide for yourself what to believe in ...
