Blacks Forced To Leave Beach In South Africa

By: Leon kwasi Kuntuo-Asare

In an act that seemed reminiscent to its apartheid past, guards on a beach in Cape Town, South Africa , ordered its Black residents to leave, which caused protests to erupt in Clifton 4th Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches in Cape Town.

According to the BBC private guards, hired by local residents ordered all Black people to leave the area.

CapeTown mayor, Dan Plato, would later say in a statement “We will not allow any private organizations to limit access to our public spaces,” and the guards “had no authority to ask anyone to leave Clifton beach”.

According to the Sun, CapeTown Deputy Police Minister, Bongani Mkongi, claimed the police would “go hard on the security company”.

According to many South African activists, these illegal apartheid era-racism is not uncommon.

According to The Grio, Chumane Maxwele, a local activist involved in the protest, claimed often security guards are instructed not to allow Black people onto the beaches.

The United States’ Justice Department is contemplating criminally charging state and local officials who implement and or enforce policies that protect the rights of people classified as illegal immigrants.

This would mean that Mayors and governors and even local law enforcement who refuse to comply with federal immigration laws could face possible jail time.

Earlier this month, Thomas Homan, the acting director of Immigration and customs enforcement said:

“We gotta take ( Sanctuary Cities) to court , and we gotta start charging some politicians with crimes”.
