She steered that members of the parliament ought to resolve this subject with the usage of the structure.
“Politicians in parliament have avenues to handle this subject. They may have referred to as Clicks administration to clarify. I simply assume the motion smacks of being extra of political desperation than about black lady’s hair,” mentioned Madonsela.
She solely acknowledged the response of a gaggle of women displaying delight of their as the very best response appropriate for this example.
“I think about the motion to be #Epicleadership and cerebral,” she mentioned in a tweet.
In my opinion, the #Clicks case #BlackHairMatter,is a textbook case of unconscious bias. Calling it out is nice however anarchy and violence undermine the trigger. One of the best and most cerebral response I’ve seen to this point is a video by younger black ladies, amongst them my colleague @Diane_Gahiza

“Are we going to have individuals die presumably over hair? Additionally, logically Clicks is a buying and selling firm. No one may recommend Clicks goes out of its technique to insult its clients,” she mentioned.
