[Fwd: Baboons]

A racist comment made on Facebook landed a young HPCSA employee in hot
water when she was arrested and charged with crimen injuria on Monday

The woman, who cannot be named as she has not appeared in court, was
arrested after she compared strikers to *baboons* and said they
intimidated people with their *grunting noises*. She did not participate
in the strike.

Warrant Officer Duane Lightfoot, of the Sunnyside police station,
confirmed that she had been arrested and said she was still in custody.
She will appear in the Pretoria Magistrate's court on Tuesday.



Since this is regarded a "racist" incident, it's safe to assume the
unnamed woman is white. Were she black or Indian, there'd likely be no

Now, let's venture the far flung assumption of a bunch of white folks
going on strike and then leaving a mess behind. Should anyone calling
them "pigs" be considered a racist as well (irrespective whether that
person is black or white)?

Let's call some white people "baboons" and black people "pigs", and suddenly it's not a racist issue?
