A BANTU IN MY BATHROOM PDF

Unfortunately, I was not nearly as impressed as I had anticipated. Also as an HIV activist, I felt his discussion on this was lacking considerably and that he could have developed his essay much further but instead he barely scratched the surface of the stigmatic divide which exists. Written by a controversial political commentator in South Africa who is male, coloured and gay. I enjoyed this book, I think The author is not a likeable character, at times it feels that his opinions are out there and everyone else can go fly, but I also found that an endearing quality.

Unfortunately, I was not nearly as impressed as I had anticipated. Also as an HIV activist, I felt his discussion on this was lacking considerably and that he could have developed his essay much further but instead he barely scratched the surface of the stigmatic divide which exists. Written by a controversial political commentator in South Africa who is male, coloured and gay.

I enjoyed this book, I think The author is not a likeable character, at times it feels that his opinions are out there and everyone else can go fly, but I also found that an endearing quality. I was slightly frustrated at the quality of his arguments, and just wished that books did not have a word limit. I am confident that Eusebius A collection of short stories about race, sexuality and love. That is how I felt on several occasions during the book. However, the book is definitely thought provoking and raises controversial issues and has an honesty about the state of South Africa, and often, quite frankly, the state of most of the world.

I would recommend this to people who love a good debate especially about some of the prevalent issues in South Africa and the world today. UB, as many callers to his radio show affectionately call him, has once again demonstrated his ability to invoke thought and self-reflection as he discusses a number of issues that are consistently present in the South African political, and personal, landscape.

I feel better able to give considerations for my own beliefs and opinions having been given a small insight into the UB brain. Great read that was far too quickly finished. A seasoned debater. I think I would have enjoyed the book even without his personal stories.

These were a large cherry on top not even, a huge bowl of dessert. Debate should be compulsory at school to teach the kids to tackle issues holistically and test the merits of what they believe in.

His stories are raw and juicy. A must read.

Known as an iconoclast and a provocateur, McKaiser relished this reaction, promptly starting off his talk by questioning the assumption that Rhodes is perceived as being the most liberal campus in South Africa. Ironically, this stance remained uncontested during the question and answer session. McKaiser grew up in Grahamstown and went to school at Graeme College. After obtaining a prestigious international Rhodes scholarship, he spent time at Oxford University working with Prof John Broome, researching whether or not people are morally responsible for their beliefs; a debate which he continues to explore to this day.

A Bantu in my Bathroom

On race, people are largely defensive, on sexuality, offensive. This attitude or approach has tended to stifle progress, whether on a personal level or on a larger social level. Those of us who write social commentary often receive the backlash on the issues we raise. As a commentator and political analyst, Eusebius McKaiser is well accustomed with this terrain, and in his new book A Bantu in My Bathroom, tackles the issues with that familiarity.
