May 09, 2014
As South African voters went to the polls, Cardinal Wilfrid Napier of Durban cautioned against support for a new sort of racial discrimination, the Fides news service reports.
The cardinal said that after years of progress following the fall of the country’s apartheid regime, he was distressed to see new policies that would classify the people of South Africa according to their race. The cardinal referred to “affirmative action” and “black economic empowerment” programs.
