Khayelitsha Xenophobia

Season 1 Episode 3


Sat, 2 May 2015 7:30pm

“When a black person sees a white man he sees money, but when he sees another black person, he sees a person coming to take his job. Its like something has been programmed for their mind to be constricted when they see other black people.

“….black people were bound not politically but psychologically, they were bound like chickens, chickens that were bound by their feet but when the binds are removed they are still bound psychologically…we need psychological emancipation”

Love your neighbour or every man for himself? A group of young men in Khayelitsha share their views on foreign nationals, black on black discrimination and the troubles that plague our communities.
