Haha yeah! That'll show those minimum wage employees who have nothing to do with decisions made by corporate!
Here we go again calling vandalism “protests.”
I have a good friend from SA. His stories from home make it sound a bit like living in a Mad Max movie. He's honestly the kindest person ever but he's killed at least 2 people, and been in a few riots and shootouts (farm raids, dudes attempting to rob mine he worked at, attempted carjacking etc).
I still don't understand why this is racist. We don't even give people the benefit of the doubt anymore, there are things that are 100% racist, and there are things "maybe it's racist?" but as soon as its a maybe, no, it's now a 100% must be racist. This is a very very charged atmosphere we are in, and its scary.
Way to fuck up the day of the employees who work there and live where you live and have nothing to do with the kids hoodie.
Yeah SA is going from developing country back to third world with glee.
Australia and the U.K. really need to step in soon and just take the Europeans that want to leave. The ones who could afford to already left or are able to whenever they want.
South Africa is probably the worst country in the world right now in regards to racial violence.
Keep in mind their current President is endorsing lynching any white people they find.
Imagine what happened to all the blacks in the South in 1930? That's happening in 2017 to the whites in SA.
Here's some highlights:
> "LAST month, British woman Sue Howarth and her husband Robert Lynn were woken at 2am by three men breaking into a window of their remote farm in Dullstroom, a small town in the northeast of South Africa, about 240km from the nearest capital city.
The couple, who had lived in the area for 20 years, were tied up, stabbed, and tortured with a blowtorch for several hours. The masked men stuffed a plastic bag down Mrs Howarth’s throat, and attempted to strangle her husband with a bag around his neck.
The couple were bundled into their own truck, still in their pyjamas, and driven to a roadside where they were shot. Mrs Howarth, 64, a former pharmaceutical company executive, was shot twice in the head. Mr Lynn, 66, was shot in the neck.
Miraculously he survived, and managed to flag down a passer-by early on Sunday morning. Mrs Howarth, who police said was “unrecognisable” from her injuries, had multiple skull fractures, gunshot wounds and “horrific” burns to her breasts.
“Sue was discovered amongst some trees, lying in a ditch,” writes Jana Boshoff, reporter for the local Middelburg Observer newspaper. “Her rescuers managed to find her by following her groans of pain and then noticing drag marks from the road into the field.
“Her head was covered with a towel. Her eyes were swollen shut. She was partially clothed with just scraps of her shirt remaining. Her breasts and upper body was bloody. The plastic bag, shoved down her throat, took some effort to remove because her jaw was clamped down tightly.
“How she managed to breathe with the bag in her throat remains a mystery. One of her rescuers later recalled how Sue was unresponsive except for the constant groaning. Whilst the man ran back to the road to see if an ambulance has not arrived yet, she managed to curl one of her arms around her breasts in a last attempt to protect herself.”
She was rushed to hospital and placed on life support, but died two days later. Due to her British nationality, her murder attracted an unusual amount of overseas media attention."
The EFF (these guys) are an extremist party. Their stunts usually don't go this far but I'm pretty sure this is more for publicity than anything else.
I wish they'd chosen a white kid for the ad, because that shirt is hilarious. I call my nieces and nephews "monkey" all the time.
Really you're going to vandalize the stores of one of the few multinational corporations willing to do business in your country? That's not going to end well for you.
I'm actually suprised H&M has stores in South Africa, I figured most larger worldwide brands have been pulling out or stopped expanding there
