EFF leader Julius Malema has lashed out at the way Africans are perceived when talking about white or Indian racism, calling some black reporters who are critical of his party “house n****rs”.
Addressing a crowd after a brief appearance in the Newcastle Magistrate’s Court on Monday, 25 June 2018.
He specifically aimed his comments at those critical of “when we speak in Parliament against Momoniat”.
“You know why [they are critical], because (they believe) Africans can’t think unless they have something to hide. That’s how they view us, including these journalists, who are Indian, who are white, and including some of the house n****rs.
They think you can’t think until you are given something, because [they believe] Africans can’t think. It’s an insult that we as Africans should unite against…
“Let’s not be scared, let’s not be demoralised. Let’s become more resolute; let’s become more determined to fight against the oppression of black people in general and Africans in particular.”
On Monday 25 June 2018, Malema maintained his stance.
“We said (the) majority of Indians are racist. They were all screaming, but they are now coming back one-by-one, sobering up and confirming exactly what the EFF is saying – that indeed the majority of Indians are racist. We did not say all Indians.”
