I don’t want to live in a Rainbow nation

South Africa is said to be a Rainbow nation. This is very true, and this is also the reason we are seeing the wave of intolerance, racism and violence continuing sweeping the country.

Just like the colours of the rainbow the different ethnical groups in South Africa don’t mix with each other. The groups might sometimes, at the best, mix physically but never emotionally. And until that happens we don’t have anything to look forward to. One can not keep on regarding racial, tribal or social classification as more important than ubuntu. It is time to stop using permanent colours when drawing the rainbow.
