BruceVC Posted March 28, 2018 Share Posted March 28, 2018 (edited) http://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-43567468 Hi All I am looking for peoples opinions on this development. In summary a white women in South Africa has been jailed for racist words she hurled at a black police officer . These are the questions you may consider This is an extreme sentence and it is an infringement on freedom of speech You cant jail people for saying racist words This is fair and should be the expected sentence for extreme racism IMO it is fair but it will also go both ways so going forward some black South Africans will also be charged for racism against white South Africans Edited March 28, 2018 by BruceVC 5 "Abashed the devil stood and felt how awful goodness is and saw Virtue in her shape how lovely: and pined his loss” John Milton "We don't stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.” - George Bernard Shaw "What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived.
