    Episode 3 - Tribalism

    Episode 3 - Tribalism

    "Venda and Tsonga people (from Limpopo) have South Africans of many tribes meting out myriad violence to us. We are at the bottom of the totem pole, with harmful discourses about how difficult our languages are, hypersexualized and seen as less attractive and more intelligent.  The violence is expressed through lack of representation in government, media, and other spheres.  The stereotypes are that we eat dirty or scary foods, are spoken of in the same xenophobic and afrophobic terms used to alienate other Africans. Tribalism is not a joke. . . The violence does ultimately become physical but most of it is seen in discourse around and about Tsonga and Venda people as being dark, ugly, not belonging and existing in the periphery so the jokes are not funny as they have tangible ramifications on peoples lives . . .I hope this thread can be a conversation starter amongst us a people, to be reflexive and adopt an intersectional revolution, because yes Black Lives Matter, but let’s also get our house in order."
