Barack Obama is an Affirmative Action appointment

The upcoming series of cartoon strips is in response to a number of requests for a look on the lighter side of living in the new post-apartheid South Africa. One of the hottest topics on this front, other than the revolutionary remedies for HIV/AIDS is affirmative action, or as it is dubbed in South Africa, BBBEE – Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment.

Take this as warning in advance that this series is certainly going to contain racially driven content. Wonkie aims to provide a variety of perspectives on BBBEE – from racial as well as socio-economic points of view. If you have a funny story or a frustration to share – please feel free to leave your comment!

For those of you that have just awoken from a lengthy hibernation, Barack Obama was inaugurated as president of the United States last month, making him the first black leader of a superpower.

  2. Xolile ka Solani says

    It is so interesting to note that a Black person can never qualify and be competent in any thing these days without bringing in affirmitive action. Can somebody just accept that the guy worked very hard to achieve what he has achieved, that he had a brilliant strategy than all his opponents.

  3. Tell me why they need a WHITE person to tell a BLACK person what to do , even though the black is a senior? Affirmative action does not give women who are white any rights. I know. I am a victim of BBBEE
