The Problem With Black People




“The Problem with Black People” is a selection of writings by award-winning film-maker and social justice activist Angelo C Louw. Spanning his ten-year career as a columnist, this body of work unpacks the intricacies of race and race relations in contemporary South Africa through an intersectional lens. The first-time author, whose journalistic focus lies in the mainstreaming voices from the margins of society, uses his debut book to redress misconceptions about race and inequality through fact, and not popular opinion. This book advances an agenda seeking to reclaim narratives of people of colour which are systemically destructive and stifling to their communities; turning the cliché on its head. By setting the record straight, Louw aims to enlighten, as well as empower.
