If you can say “Antler”, you can say Nhlanhla and not “Nshlansha. And Tshepo is a bit like the “tse” in voetstek and not Chepu #HowNotToBeRacist pic.twitter.com/i0z1Hx30es

You don’t have to know people to greet them. If we’re at the doctor’s waiting area for instance, don’t just greet the admin and sit down, ignoring everyone else in there as if they’re pot plants. Enter and greet. You won’t lose anything.#HowNotToBeRacist pic.twitter.com/08Lnco96jt

#HowNotToBeRacist Stop telling Afrikanders 2 “go back home”. They r already home. Their ancestors 1st self identified as Afrikanders (Africans) in 1707. Shaka founded the Zulu Nation in 1816, 100 years later. U can however tell individual Afrikanders 2 shape up & learn ubuntu! pic.twitter.com/xuTT0EPZLZ

#HowNotToBeRacist Never use race to make others look inferior. Never use race to push your personal agendas. Never use race to as a fighting tool. Never use race on un-racial platforms. Never use race to as reason for your anger issues! Racism is criminal!!

#HowNotToBeRacist learn how to pronounce your ngq, qh, mhl, gqw qxa & so many others. Most of you haven’t even been outside of SA but can pronounce words like Tchiakovsky, Nietzsche and Schweinsteiger
