Rights of many insulted: iLIVE
There are lots of insults flying around about the painting depicting President Jacob Zuma with his manhood exposed.
The ANC and Zuma's family are in shock and many are referring to his "dignity". They are crying foul and are supporting a ban on the artwork.
What about the dignity of pupils in the Eastern Cape and Limpopo who still don't have textbooks because of corruption and mismanagement? Their constitutional rights to education have been abused.
What about the dignity of women when Zuma, at his rape trial, suggested the complainant "had asked for it" because she was "lightly dressed'? What about those whose dignity is abused daily because of the bucket system, or the lack of access to water while the ANC councillor drives a 4x4 his salary can't afford? Or the dignity of rape victims when police officers laugh when victims want to report the rapes?
Of course, the race card needs to be played. When no arguments are left, use the race card. Some say it is an attack by colonial whites on black culture. The man in that Stalinistic picture is Zuma, and not "the black man" in general.
