The Fall of the University of Capetown

While UCT – and South Africa – remain notionally free societies, there is a deep institutional and national pathology, whereby certain classes of people, defined especially by “race” and “sex”, are protected to a significant (but not total) degree from criticism.

The strategy is to label any criticism of individual members of these classes as a manifestation of racism and sexism. The critics, it is alleged, are people who are unable to accept, in this case, a “successful black woman” as a leader.
