welcome back to the program a national action plan against racism has been approved in south africa more than five hundred race related complaints were received in the country in the period twenty fifteen and sixteen alone apartheid ended more than two decades ago but south africa is still struggling with a problem of racism meanwhile the leader of the country's far left economic freedom fighters party has caused controversy by saying that the white population should become domestic workers in black households. i don't want blacks to work for whites i want you to work for yourselves and white people will work for you that will be true freedom you must teach them how to carry babies on their back they must feel what our parents have been feeling we know. calling for white people to be killed but for white people to be our domestic work julius malema was expelled from the african national congress in two thousand and twelve for showing division within the party he went on to found the economic freedom fighters political party which
5:22 am
follows marxist ideology and which is currently the third largest in both houses of parliament over the years national debate with his views on race and class has been found guilty twice of hate speech and incitement to violence against white people. well whites make up nine percent of south africa's population but they own more than seventy percent of private farmland efforts to reclaim much of that land without compensation have been launched by the government. our guests debate the situation in south africa including those controversial comments by julius malema. his comments still i think do hold certain underlying feelings of negativity towards white people still shows that you're trapped in their love and admiration of white people he has given political power to a white racist but when he speaks in front of a black people who he knows. first and have to make believe years like this white
5:23 am
people he provides it is false militancy that simply provides some kind of distraction the general ideology julius malema in he he likes to try and create this sort of clash between races in south africa in order to gain political points he just want to replace white people in a position of oppression we don't one that want to obliterate you want to and completely this system which is constructed to do off white people on top and not placing them exploiting black people the government gives them opportunities through their. black economic empowerment it gives them opportunities it incentivizes businesses to hire them in higher positions it is easier for them to enter into higher education into universities the system in south africa is not a white supremacist system it is not

a white dominated system so definitely so why do you mean a good country thirty five thousand white families only eighty percent of the land we don't own i speak to you as a black person in south africa i over nothing i am in fact i think a tenant white people only everything the government is a black majority government this is a simple fact you cannot deny that majority of parliament members are black and this is the white. thinking it is true parliament is is black but we can't even make laws that says we must take the learnt even these politicians controlled by money who has money south africa why it's when you ask the majority of white people they will agree that the old government and its systems were corrupt and unfair to everyone in south africa and they did benefit. people unfairly that is true why people are somehow denial of all the crimes of the old government is incorrect.
