Barely one week after two white males Willem Oosthuizen and Theo Martins Jackson appeared on charges of kidnapping and assault with intent of grievous bodily harm to a black man Victor Mlotshwa, another shocking racist video has emerged.
The video footage captured a black petrol attendant kicking the hell out of a white rival in a filling station. Although it’s still unclear if the fight was prompted by racism, or whether it was a straight-up fight, many social media users opined that there is more to the scuffle.

In the video, a white man, who appears to be a motorist was caught running towards a black petrol attendant in an attempt to charge the fight.
But he was ‘easily’ knocked down by his black rival, who went ahead to throw hard punches on his head and face, despite starting the fight with a kung-fu-like move.
The white folk looked apparently hurt after the short fight. Another petrol attendant, at this point emerged and separated the duo, pushing his colleague into a room. The hurt man stayed on the ground for a few seconds before he eventually stood up.
The video was posted on Mzansi Live and has pulled thousands of comments and mixed feelings.
In a related story, President Zuma has vowed that any individual caught carrying out acts of racism “in our non-racial democracy” must also pay dearly for his actions.
He upheld that the assault is a clear picture of the deep-seated racist attitudes that still prevails in some parts of the country – where black people are still regarded as lesser human beings.
He was responding to the coffin Assault case between Victor Mlotshwa and his white assaulters. The assaulters appeared last week in the Middelburg Magistrate’s Court. The case continues on January 25.
