I am very disturbed and disappointed with the video of a white male customer who was involved in an altercation with a black female patron at the Texamo Spur at Glen Shopping Mall over the weekend. The video went viral on social media and people reacted. This man was insulting a woman, calling her names in front of the children. I wonder whether racism and discrimination against black women will ever end. The man insulted a black woman in front of his family which indicates that he does not have respect for his own wife and children. This behavior is unacceptable and it promotes racism and hatred. I welcome the fact that Spur Steak Ranches has issued a media statement stating that the male customer has been banned from all its chain restaurants after he was involved in an altercation with a female patron at one of its restaurants in Johannesburg.
I personally condemn what happened on the video, it’s high time we advocate for no violence against women and children. We appeal to all men to be responsible, protective and to have respect for women and children.
