While it is important to acknowledge that the vast majority of people in South Africa are not racist, it goes without saying that racism remains a problem in South Africa. A recent study by the Institute for Race Relations (IRR) found that only 4,7% of people in South Africa regard “racism/xenophobia/reverse apartheid” as South Africa’s most serious unresolved problem. The IRR also found that about 72% of South Africans do not experience any racism in their daily lives.
On the other hand, AfriForum has certainly noticed an increase in hate speech and racism on social media in recent years, partly due to increased claims about white supremacy and “white monopoly capital”.
