Xhanti Payi Reviews A Bantu in My Bathroom by Eusebius McKaiser

A Bantu in My Bathroom: Debating Race, Sexuality and Other Uncomfortable South African TopicsVerdict: carrot

Political or social debate in South Africa tends to be defensive or offensive. On race, people are largely defensive, on sexuality, offensive. This attitude or approach has tended to stifle progress, whether on a personal level or on a larger social level. Those of us who write social commentary often receive the backlash on the issues we raise. As a commentator and political analyst, Eusebius McKaiser is well accustomed with this terrain, and in his new book A Bantu in My Bathroom, tackles the issues with that familiarity.

McKaiser is no stranger to the masses – the chattering masses at least. As a go to analyst and radio talk show host, his name in bookshelves will not be unfamiliar. In his first book, A Bantu in My Bathroom, he confronts South Africa’s most thorniest and current subjects with the language and posture of a debater.
