Surely you are wondering what is “black like me.”
This was one among the interesting articles i read in one of the South African financial Magazine – Fin Week.
This is one of the most successful financial magazines that exist in South Africa and provides depth analysis on economic, social, technological and political analysis from locally and Internationally.
“Black like me” is an article which looked on ‘why black foreigners take advantages created by Black Economic Empowerement and the South Africans don’t http://www.fin24.co.za/articles/default/display_article.aspx?ArticleID=1518-1445-1900_2167602
It can not be desputed but possible on the the reasons why such things are happening is either black South Africans are not taking the advantage of such opportunities at their disposal and or are not aware that such opportunities do exist for them – especially those women in rural areas where there’s a high rate of illeteracy
Also the article goes further that black foreign nationals are increasingly occupying higher positions in SA’s private sector than locals, especially in the financial services sector where many are particvipants in major black economic emppowerment transaction.
It can not be argues that some of these African nationals are educated hence their occupance on higher financial sector – but so are the South Africans.
Maybe it’s time we re-redefined what is South African and previously disadvantaged group(s).
