So, "fuck [insert minority group here]" is not racist or hate speech in a country with one of the strictest anti racism/hate speech laws.   


You just know that our lovable looneys will twist themselves into knots trying to justify this.

Can you explain the strict anti racism/hate speech laws in South Africa? I'm not privy to SA law.

Promotion of Equality and Prevention of Unfair Discrimination Act is part of their constitution.

I'm not usually a fan of Wikipedia, but this is a pretty good article on it.

Basically, blacks can be racist to white, because it's good.

Only one problem with your theory:  the author of the "Fuck White People" was white.

"The piece by Dean Hutton, an art student at the University of Cape Town, showed gold-colored boots, a chair and wallpaper showing the expletive and the words "white people" numerous times. Hutton is white."

Be careful making assumptions.
