I'm a recovering racist...

"See the World from a Place of Non-Judgement" is the heading for Chapter 26 of the book You're Awesome. The following is an extract from this chapter.

They learn about justice or injustice, they learn about violence or peace, they learn about intolerance or compassion, they learn about bullying or acceptance.

The door to a non-racist South Africa is for each of us to to get to know people of colour that are different than our own. There are many South African's who do not see others by the colour of their skin - they recognise people for who they are as people. Let those of us who are working towards a non-racist society and building a better future for South Africa by being active citizens, join together on the free platform Together SA - Building Our Future, developed by South Africans for South Africans.
