 In Spotlight, Africa, Dr Mark Potterton draws attention to the 2017 book "Why I'm no longer talking to white people about race", by British journalist Reni Eddo-Lodge, pointing out that her observations of “structural racism” offer a timely assessment of current events. It also challenges South Africans to reflect on the continued existence of structural racism in our own society.
