Lerato Tshablala, known from her column “Urban Miss” in the Sunday Times has become renown for her often contentious view-points on race-related matters. In her book, The Way I See it, she writes about her reality as a black woman in a white-dominated business world; her observations on gender stereotypes, cultural stereotypes and other inequalities in our country. Her book has been much criticised as being anti-black, and a product of a white publishing industry. But however her viewpoints are regarded, they are hers, and therefore valid in a country that advocates freedom of speech. Her irreverence, wit, and often total disregard for racial sensitivities has resulted in the book being a hot topic of recent social media debate.
