Black student’s message to whites: if there is going to be blood, it won’t be ours

A video of #FeesMustFall protesters reportedly disrupting a UCT commerce lecture shows a student warning her white counterparts that they will join the movement.

The protesting student states that white students must use their “privilege” and “stand in solidarity” with the #FeesMustFall movement.

She adds that the matter is not up for discussion, and that “we are instructing you”.

The student further states that black South Africans have no reason to live in peace with white South Africans, and that they would no longer be passive while “violence is imposed on our bodies”.

“If there is going to be blood, it’s not going to be ours,” she said.

The publication of the video comes soon after a WhatsApp voice note did the rounds at Wits, calling for a white student to be killed so the #FeesMustFall protests will be taken seriously.
