African migrants mock Black South Africans as White man slaps Black cop

African migrants in South Africa mock black South Africans over a viral video in which a white man slapped a black cop.

They claim black cops only harass and intimidate black migrants but become vegetables before white men.

Hitherto, black migrants in South Africa have always lamented their ordeals in the hands of South African cops.

Earnest Atugba, a Nigerian businessman in Northgate angrily disclosed: “White men harass black migrants. Black cops intimidate and victimize black migrants. White cops respect white migrants. Black cops worship white migrants. It is even risky to be a black migrant in South Africa”.

In 2014, Nigeria protested to South Africa about a “merciless attack” by police on one of its nationals in Cape Town.

A video purportedly shows the man being stripped, assaulted and handcuffed by policemen and security agents.

Over a month ago, Victor Tochukwu Nnadi was suffocated to death by the Metropolitan Police in Cape Town. He was allegedly choked as he lay handcuffed on the street.

The police claimed he swallowed heroin to evade arrest but this allegation could not be proven.

African migrants say ‘good riddance’ to black South Africans on the alleged assault of the black cop.

The migrants claim black cops have aided brutality against them during xenophobic attacks in South Africa.

A Burundian migrant says: “During xenophobic attack about eight or nine years ago. The black police who ought to protect us were even beating us. One of them left one of us to burn to death in Jules, Johannesburg”.

Words on the street theorized that it is Afrophobic attacks that have taken place in South Africa, not xenophobic. The only people who were also attacked during Afrophobic attacks are Pakistanis.
