The Grand Part 2

Season 1 Episode 37

Sat, 30 May 2015 7:30pm

“For me the most disturbing thing about it was how it was such a black on black thing, because if you’re going to call it Xenophobia then you need to include all foreigners……but what ended up happening is that it became more of a lower class situation…..a poverty situation, it became a education situation…its very much based on ignorance and its so much easier to create an other “

In 2000, the country saw a steady increase in xenophobic violence, and in May 2008 a series of riots left 62 people dead. In part 2 of The Grand, 6 foreigners ruminate on the circumstances that lead South Africans to such extreme acts of violence.
