South Africa: Let’s talk about race

guardiancouk+guardian+logo

Over the last few weeks, there has been a hundreds of years old conversation happening in South Africa on whiteness, white-racism and white Power. The conversation was reopened (not that it was ever closed) by Gillian Schutte’s letter to white people on which I reflect. Esther Athi-Nangomso Nkopo and Andile Mngxitama advance a response which situates Schutte’s project within the structural totality of white Power, others contest these responses and I ask, almost cynically, what the conditions for rescuing whiteness might be.

The Guardian picks up on and collates this conversation.
