There's a larger system that you must learn to address rather than just people and that, I think, is a level of maturity that is very important to reach in learning how to live in the world. — Milisuthando Bongela

    If you still keep thinking in terms like black or white i won't listen to you. There is no black or white in my world and i live very good with that but you keep on separating people. I liked your podcast until you counted out that little important thing. Grow up and rethink what you said!
