• Raven is from 'every continent in Africa'

    Actress Raven Symone seems to be suffering from a bad case of 'foot-in-mouth' disease. Symone received a lot of criticism last year after she told media mogul Oprah Winfrey that she didn't want to be 'labelled' as 'African-American'. Last week she proved how little geographical knowledge she has by referring to African countries as continents. “I never said I wasn’t black, I said I wasn’t African American – to me that’s a difference,” she stated.

  • NPA: Dropping of Zuma's 2009 charges justifed

    The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) says the decision to drop corruption and fraud charges against Jacob Zuma before he became president in 2009 was justified, because the NPA was being used to fight former President Thabo Mbeki's political battles.

  • Masculinity’s naked truth - City Press

    There’s a new song by Wanda Baloyi called Indoda in which she melodically croons “indoda ayikhali”: no matter how hard it gets, a man doesn’t cry. A Google search of these words reveals another song titled Indoda ayikhali by Afro-pop star Nhlanhla Nciza. Examining the sociological context within which South African boys grow up – whether it is through traditional initiation rituals, on sports fields or daily subliminal messaging on television, suggestive of how a “real man” behaves – there exists a culture that denies boys their human ability and need to cry, to express so-called soft and feminine emotions like fear and insecurity. The performance that the patriarchal brand of masculinity requires from boys and men becomes clear.
