Mbuyiseni Ndlozi has no kind words for Bianca Schoombee even after she issued an apology following the resurfacing of her old racist tweets which has forced her to revoke her entry into Miss South Africa 2020.
“I don’t forgive you. Go get your forgiveness from De Klerk and the Springbok! Your racism has nothing to do with individuals,” he said.
Ndlozi tells Schoombee that it’s a system of white priviledge that made her and that will always make her a ‘racist’.
“Unless such a system is destroyed you can’t help, but will always be racist,” he said.
Schoombee says her tweets were influenced by poor hindsight and that she was only a teenager back then and pleads for forgiveness on the views expressed on those tweets.
Ndlozi, however couldn’t be moved by the apology and insists that racism should never be forgiven.
“No one should forgive racism! There is no futile act like forgiving racism. Racism doesn’t recognize you as a forgiving being. After all, how can you ask a dog to forgive you for always putting it in chains?” questions Ndlozi.
He tells her to forgive herself, because the ‘dog’ has no power to forgive.
Mbuyiseni Ndlozi also adds that no one can outgrow racism.
“You can’t outgrow and leave racism in teenage years. You transform it, burying it deep in your sub conscience.
From time to time, it will slip out in jokes, dreams, taste, anger, enjoyment and aesthetics of white priviledge. No one should forgive racism, it should be destroyed,” he said.
