Guilty of being black...

South African Human Rights Commission chairman, Jody Kollapen delivers the commission's findings that the Forum for Black Journalists not allowing whites to join is unconstitutional.
Today I attended the findings announcement at the HRC regarding the Forum for Black Journalists. The FBJ forced a few white journalists to leave a briefing by ANC President, Jacob Zuma recently. The commission found that act unjustified and unconstitutional, so rather than eat a bit of humble pie and admit that it is as wrong as a forum for white journalists only.
What do they do?
They say that they are being found guilty of being black and have decided to have a convention of all black organisations to discuss the matter, now- how the hell does that do anything to help black or white journalists?
It simply makes the whole matter a bit more petty.
If they had half a brain, they would simply allow white journalists to join, who knows they might actually have something worthwhile to add.
Who are the racists now?
