"What would these same people who argue for the author’s integrity say about the tendency of the ruling coalition to ban any book that challenges its authority?
Education system the problem
My greater concern is how a national education system that is fundamentally structured to be racist can attempt to teach a text as problematic as Interlok.
This book, because of its content, is the kind of book that should help further, deepen, and intensify national discourse on race relations. It is a book that should be handled with maturity and critical yet intelligent interrogation. Precisely because it offends some people, it should be deconstructed and taught with sensitivity."~The hypocrisy surrounding Interlok | The Nut Graph
