It was rather unfortunate to see some South Africans express their joy at the expense of Tumi and her family's hurt at this time.
On Friday night, Tumi Morake and her family were injured during a head-on collision whilst on their way to Sun City.
The Morake family was among the ten people who were involved in the accident. According to EWN reports, all occupants involved in the accident sustained minor injuries and received the best of medical care
Whilst news made its way onto social media, South African's offered their words of encouragement & prayers to not only the Morake family but to all those who were involved in the accident.
However, not everyone showed empathy towards Tumi.
The intelligence Bureau SA Facebook page announced the news of Tumi's accident and the racist comments that stemmed from that announcement was just shocking. Words such as bitch & karma were thrown around as some of the people seemed somewhat joyful of what had occurred to Tumi and her family
So you may wonder why some white people have responded so negatively towards Tumi's accident.
Well, in September, Tumi Morake addressed the issue of racism in the country during her show on Jacaranda FM & because of her opinion she was then labeled as a racist by Jacaranda FM's white listeners.
Tumi stood her ground and mentioned that she was not being racist but merely pointing out the elephant in the room when it comes to racism in this country.

South Africans - white & black were clearly disturbed by the racist comments that were coming from some white South Africans with regards to Tumi's accident
Ok, as a white person, can I just ask all the despicable racists that somehow thought it was ok to be so vile to #tumimorake to fuck off. You don’t speak for me. And good luck explaining to your God that you revelled in an accident involving children. You make me sick 😡— The Bride (@RouxCelia) December 30, 2017
Only in South Africa will you see nice white Christian Afrikaners attributing #TumiMorake’s car accident to the decidedly non-Christian concept of karma 🙄— Sarah Britten Pillay (@Anatinus) December 30, 2017
I don’t think these people’s are only just racists they are just plain horrible human beings who have inferiority complexes and can’t handle themselves. What type of person are you to wish something bad for another human being? Speedy recovery to all involved #TumiMorake— Rakgadi Modiga (@RakgadiE) December 30, 2017
