Black tax foreign to us

Toto Konco, Gugulethu

I don’t like this phrase everyone is talking about – “Black Tax”.

It’s an insulting term which was not coined originally by black people.

It has negative connotations and I believe black people must debate this issue on their own.

Having looked up the description, it’s viewed as a burden that our parents are putting on us.

The fact is, it’s not our parents who are a burden but the capitalist system which creates this so-called burden from our
folks.

I feel this should be called a capitalist tax that we are suffering from so that we can deal with it accordingly.
