Patrice benefited from racist economic policy: iLIVE
Fifty years of being a journalist have made me very cynical at times because of the basic tendencies in human nature that cater primarily for the promotion of self-interest.
Patrice Motsepe "doling out billions" leaves me cold. He is a fatcat who beat others at boarding the gravy train occupied by beneficiaries of the racist policies of BEE .
He decided: "Fortune I have. I need more fame coupled with ego-boosting popularity."
What better way to achieve these goals than a high-profile announcement that he's become a philanthropist to improve the "lifestyles" of the disadvantaged? How noble.
If racist economic policies were wrong during the apartheid era, they can't be acceptable now.
