Time to shun South Africa

Time to shun South Africa, by Paul Murray.

WHERE are the calls to stop South Africa coming to the Commonwealth Games? …

Zimbabwe took a turn for the worse with a rise in this type of racism in 2002 and it was kicked out of the Commonwealth.

But not a word for anyone about punishing South Africa for even considering such racially-focused laws.

For all the talk about tackling racism in all its forms, our leaders are silent when the racism will see white farmers driven from their land simply due to the colour of their skin.

The world was right to shun South Africa during Apartheid and the Commonwealth is wrong not to start talking about doing the same now.
