3 days ago Even many of us who are black are fluent in antiracism but not in anti-sexism, and we are even less fluent in anti-misogynoir politics.Look at the townships, the homeless, the exploited and the ones who are killed for asking for better wages.13 January 2022 - 05:00 Philosopher, communist and ANC national chair Gwede Mantashe said the following as part of the ANC’s 110th anniversary celebrations:"Once upon a time, I, Gwede, dreamt I was a butterfly, fluttering hither and thither, to all intents and purposes a butterfly.13 January 2022 - 05:00 Philosopher, communist and ANC national chair Gwede Mantashe said the following as part of the ANC’s 110th anniversary celebrations:"Once upon a time, I, Gwede, dreamt I was a butterfly, fluttering hither and thither, to all intents and purposes a butterfly.

A casual perusal of SA social media platforms will present you with a buffet of examples of black men who furiously critique racism but who are habitually silent on homophobia and misogyny and even silent on critiques of capitalism.That is because many of us are driven by a careerist desire to be let into the privileged corridors of this or that company or workplace rather than by a deeper commitment to eliminating structural injustices more generally across fault lines that go beyond our biographical identity markers and brute personal material interest.In fact, the more influential our positions, the louder our voices should be.Which is all the more reason to take with a pinch of salt the rare and insincere rehearsal of allyship of some black male fans of Sisulu when they come out to play.Now I do not know whether I was then a man dreaming I was a butterfly, or whether I am now a butterfly, dreaming I am a man.Most of them are gaming.Her opinion clearly ruffled the feathers of those who are comfortable with the status quo; it made those who believe their word is final tremble inside their green gowns.Which is why you could not find in their public work a sustained record of fighting misogynoir.Many of the people sitting in the rarefied atmosphere at the top of the ANC’s upper echelon are philosopher manqués, deeply abstruse thinkers who understand the world very, very differently to you and I.

It shows, ironically, an interest in someone like Sisulu as an individual divorced from social structures rather than an interest in structural analysis about the intersection of racism, capitalism and patriarchy.There have been studies and research conducted that demonstrate how black people are systematically excluded from accessing and playing a part in the economy..That is precisely how a patriarchal male performs the language of intersectionality for self-gain.Why do we think being a member of an oppressed group gives you necessary immunity from criticism of how your actions may undermine the interests of the group of which you are a member? A relentless focus on the systemic injustices black women face and experience daily would and should lead to a critical analysis of everyone in positions of power, including women who are friends of patriarchy.Paramount as it may be, the repeated failure to address it has almost rendered it meaningless.There is simply no intrinsic guarantee that any particular woman is a friend of the feminist project any more than there is a guarantee that me being gay makes me an ally of all queer people or committed to a political project that seeks to eliminate oppression against queer people.If you have already registered or subscribed, please sign in to continue.Why do we think being a member of an oppressed group gives you necessary immunity from criticism of how your actions may undermine the interests of the group of which you are a member? Interestingly, Sisulu herself does not think membership of an oppressed group is a get-out-of jail card.No doubt government (executive, judiciary and legislature) has the power to address the economic and land crisis in this country..

Her fans clearly did not take her column about African judicial officers seriously.If you liked her column — I didn’t, but I am here engaging those who claim they agreed with large parts of it — then you should presumably accept her implicit position that black judges can be guilty of internalised oppression despite experiences of anti-black racism.The South African judicial system, as Sisulu suggested, is nothing but a rip-off of Western ones.That was a key thesis in that column we are all debating this week.But if you think about that thesis, the logical upshot of it must be that a woman, too, is capable of undermining group interests just as a queer person can be capable of exhibiting internalised homophobia.There has been no attempt to introduce an African way of approaching justice.If you are a fan of minister Sisulu’s column it would be ironic if you disagree with me, because this lesson is one of the takeaways she wanted us to walk away with from her critique of the legal profession in our country.

But, in turn, we can therefore apply the same question to her work: Is Lindiwe Sisulu a friend of women generally and of black women in particular? If the mere question upsets you, then I hope you were also upset that she framed an identical question about black judges.Judges will mention ubuntu simply to give their judgments a semblance of Africanness, but it goes no further than that..

But in the MYANC non performance is a super achievement only trumped by pillage and plunder. These are usually worthy of promotion of some sort. The timing of the vicious attack on the Con Court and judiciary is very suspicious! Perhaps too many pals are being exposed. Great way to distract findings of the State Capture Report. Is it a smokescreen to distract?

She had this positions because of the late Walter Sisulu. Lindiwe Sisulu is useless to our country. She can never be the president of South Africa, but if she becomes one, South Africa will fall into the ground. I remember her unveiling matchbox containers in the scorching heat for people to live in, she's a gem this one Amandla ✊🏾✊🏾✊🏾

LindiweSisulumustfall House negro Lindiwe Sisulu is leading the beginning of this revolution, whether you like it or not we will get rid of these terrorist holding the government and its citizens at gun point.. Absolutely, her family political history is the only thing that kept her in office for so long, if not her own 'struggle credentials' Otherwise she has done absolutely nothing that makes her stand out.

Useless people talk too much, with nothing to show for it. She there because is Walter daughter my foot. Sisulu gave colonial clerks chest pains 😂 😂 Character assassination has started 😅typical SA media

Mcebo Dlamini | Why Lindiwe Sisulu is correct on transformation | CitypressWe prayed for justice, equality and freedom, but that prayer was never answered – not by the judiciary, the executive or the legislature. This is evident to everyone. Ah Mcebo. THE FUTURE depends on what you do today, start doing what's necessary, then what's possible and suddenly you are doing the impossible.. We may also help by getting you join in our Forex trading investment platform..!! DM to get started📩 Transformation as she puts it is total Black domination with Coloureds, Indaans and Whites relegated to menial 2nd class status. She is espousing Julius Malema's policies. She should join the EFF.

Its dead race between Lindiwe and Fikile who is going to take a crown!!! What the waist of time and money in both of them!!! Constitutional amendments or revisions can in the US, UK and other countries. Hell we can even “amend” the Bible through second testament but when it comes to SA constitution we just should even talk about it. that’s just blasphemy. But why

STRATCOM tactics trying to silence Min Sisulu , we haven't forget similar tactics were utilized to silence mam Winnie Mandela and in Min Sisulu she has multiplied Really ia this even considered journalism ? She has failed her own kind how does she justify her actions open your eyes people. What is so difficult in seeing that the constitution and the judges are there to protect white coperates in the main and to deal with any & every threat from blacks as well as further entrench poverty of black people?

Desperate measures to be recognized for wrong reasons. She Lacks Ethical Leadership Skills and Service Not Principled at all. Eusebius is a black hater Yawn Praise singers of CR
