Teaching -cism in silence

As a child, just after apartheid, I don’t remember learning about how white, is “better”, and black “is not”. I don’t remember sitting in a lecture being indoctrinated. I don’t remember anything else, but I do remember the subtle cues around me.

I remember certain people being treated differently and later I learned why, more specifically, I learned who.

Today, in our open and free democratic society, I see a new trend. The word race is slowly replaced by class. Some people are still treated differently. Soon our kids will figure out who and then, sadly, why.
