Youth Day

Last month, the Democratic Alliance marched on COSATU House in support of a youth wage subsidy, and COSATU members tasered the DA marchers and threw rocks at them.

Andile Mathobela thought it was funny to see the grown man cry.
"i want my mommy" lol he posted on his Facebook page.

I wonder how Andile would have reacted had someone laughed at this
 thirty six years ago?
Although I've always maintained that a good belly-laugh is sufficient to banish almost any demon, there is a difference between joyous laughter, or even mildly self-deprecating chuckles, and sneering down the nose at a wounded human being.
What we continue to do to each other isn't funny.
