‘Racist’ attackers don’t represent us – Jonathan Jansen

The bad behaviour of two or ten or 20 students does not represent the behaviour of 30 000 students, Professor Jonathan Jansen, rector of the University of the Free State (UFS), has said after an alleged racist attack. Professor Jansen called for realistic thinking and pointed out that anyone who thinks transformation can be driven without resistance clearly does not understand how difficult the process is. In an the open letter Jansen states that, emergency measures have been introduced to discuss the incident in depth with all who are involved. (City Press 21 February 2014)
