Most people agree that we are living in a time of white supremacy – Ferial Haffajee

Ferial Haffajee

What If There Were No Whites In South Africa?During a recent presentation on her new book What If There Were No Whites In South Africa?, Ferial Haffajee made a powerful statement:

“Most people agree that we are living in a time of white supremacy.”

The discussion of current affairs and relevant issues took place at the Gordon Institute of Business Science, and Haffajee demonstrated why she can make such a bold claim, with support from her controversially titled book.

The notion that we are living in a time of white supremacy was supported by Haffajee’s whiteness studies at Wits and roundtable discussions she held to research her book.

Other questions asked by Haffajee include:

  • If non-racialism does not work for you, what is your vision?
  • If white-owned resources and assets were redistributed, would we be better off as a country?
  • How should the new middle class act?
  • If non-racialism does not work for you, what is your vision?
