Brenda Wardle and Woke Twitter analysis of Racist Online Statements

Racism is one of the biggest challenges that have been facing South Africa. With a large number of the white settlers still living as citizens of the country, the problem seems far from being sorted. The issue of whites terming blacks as an inferior race in the country remains a stumbling block to a free and equal South Africa as envisaged by Nelson Mandela.

One incident that has since attracted public uproar is that of Penny Sparrow, a real estate agent in South Africa. Through her social channels, she referred to the black race of South Africa as monkeys. When people learned of the statement, a public outrage followed, both from online and beyond. She lost her job since the statement was greatly publicized and greatly criticized.

A twitter community, Woke Twitter criticized Sparrows statement after they caught the racist rant she posted online. According to Woke, the idea of racism is a thing of the past and only occurring in exception is false. Racism is real and exists largely. Woke recognizes and tries to respond to racism existence, in a way that will promote consciousness as well as social action. Its representatives do their best to expose racist comments that are posted on social channels like twitter and face book. Woke fights for transformation of South Africa to a racism free country, and says that very drastic action should be taken against those who will stand in the way of this transformation.

Sparrows’ rants also caught the attention of a legal analyst in South Africa, Brenda Wardle. According to Wardle, every person has the right to free speech. But the right should not infringe on other people’s humanity and dignity.

Brenda Wardle has been known for her passion in legal analysis. She loves interpreting the relationship between law and people’s daily life. Wardle holds three law degrees: in Criminal Justice, a Bachelor of Laws and Masters of Laws Degree in forensic medicine. She is also an author and has written a book called ‘To Kill a Fragile Rose.’ The book is an analysis of the state trial against Carl Pistorious. Her analysis on several matters including the Pistorious issue never falls far from truth.
