I offered no compliments. You did not just bring to our attention xenophobic
perceptions that exist out in the real world (as if we didn't know) but fed
into the whole offensive body of anti-foreigner propaganda as well while
attempting to give it a phoney progressive spin. Nobody has special
privileges here as you claim, but if you raise this kind of crap expect a
response that is appropriate. These are absolutely fundamental issues which
have life and death implications for some people.
As I recall, nobody asked for you to be thrown off this list or be silenced.
Personally I prefer it if your sort of thinking is out in the open so that
it can be challenged. Where Jacob Zuma comes into it all is beyond me -
nobody but you has mentioned him. And the only 'contemptible, derogatory and
vile language' I've noticed here is your not-very-subtle anti-foreigner

Thanks for the compliment Russell!
Firstly, bringing to your attention the perceptions has damned me to
Secondly, 'animal farm' re-visited: some contributors are more privileged
than others; this is an exclusive, intellectual elitist's forum, not for
parvenus like Hanif Manjoo.
As much as the Presidency is not for Comrade Jacob Zuma! Apologies, I
knocked on the wrong door!
If the usage of contemptible, derogatory and vile language is the norm
against participants, what more can be an embarrassment on this list?
What a way to promote understanding and respect!
