The feisty business woman and reality TV star took to Instagram to express herself over the recent xenophobic attacks happening in parts of the country.

Here is the letter the star posted as a caption for a picture on her Instagram account:

Dear Black South African,

What makes YOU better? NOTHING! Who died and made you kings and queens of Africa? NO ONE! What makes you more deserving of a better life than any other African? NOTHING!!!!!

It is this “hand-out” mentality that you have that distorts your view on life.

Selfish, cold hearted, evil, cruel, disrespectful, uneducated members of South African society. So distorted that people must die such brutal deaths because you have an issue with YOURSELF.

Because YOU FAIL to be the change you want to see in YOUR LIFE. Most of you don’t even have passports. You have never travelled outside the township that raised you, and NO a trip to JHB CBD for cheap shopping is not travelling.

You, yes, YOU racist black person are pathetically uneducated. Even in things as simple as understanding that Africa is for Africans NOT just South Africans.

In hindsight, it had to be South Africans that died IN BULK in Nigeria. Karma greets us all in the most unsuspecting ways. The laws of the universe will never let you/us be great!!! Not like this.

I am ASHAMED to be South African today. Because from where i sit, my contribution is limited to an instgram post. What can one do really. The vast of us feel helpless. Such fuckery!
