As South Africans we always put ourselves down and think we are the worst racists, in Russia they kill Black people for being Black. The latest victim is one of our own, a South African actor, Tito Romalio, who died last week in Alexandrovskaya Hospital after being beaten by a 43-year-old Russian in the streets, in what police sources there say was a racial crime. According to statistics collated by the Moscow Bureau for Human Rights, Africans and other non-whites living in Russia are frequently attacked by neo-Nazi gangs, with a total of 74 people(2009) were killed in racist attacks in Russia last year alone. A total 120 Blacks killed in 2008.
Here in South Africa we take crime deaths and make them racial to feed our perceived racist hunger, as if we still miss apartheid.MORE
