Racism is always a topic that evokes great emotion within, no matter what race you are. Even though some might try to avoid the elephant in the room, racism somehow will always be a topic of discussion.
Earlier on Friday, Bonnie Mbuli, who was infuriated by the hashtag #IAmStellenbosch, shared her own recent experience concerning racism. The Expresso presenter took to Twitter and put her own frustrations when it comes to racism in the country out there.
