Youth don’t see black is beautiful
Mbali Judith Meyers, IOL News, 11/9/12

Stephen Bantu Biko was a man who came up with the philosophy of Black Consciousness, which later led to the formation of the Black Consciousness Movement.

The movement was based on solid ideas of a state of mind and a way of thinking. The ideals were fixed on a black man accepting the way he is and rejecting all systems of oppression.

In the world of today, the youth have denied the vision of Bantu Biko, and are not living up to his legacy.

They have set an unyielding belief that white is superior to black.
