A Bantu in My Bathroom by Eusebius McKaiser has just been published and asks the following questions:
Why are South Africans so uncomfortable with deep disagreement?
Why do we lash out at people with opposing views without taking the time to engage logically with their arguments?
Eusebius McKaiser is on a mission to raise the level of debate in South Africa. He provokes us from our comfort zones and lures us into the debates that shape our opinions and our society. With surprising candour and intensely personal examples, McKaiser examines our deepest-felt prejudices and ingrained assumptions. Don’t expect to read this book and escape with your defences intact.
Immensely readable and completely engaging, McKaiser tackles deeply South African questions of race, sexuality and culture, including:
- Can blacks be racist?
- Why is our society so violent?
- Is it morally okay to be prejudiced against skinny lovers?
- Why is the presidential penis so problematic?
- Is unconditional love ever a good thing?
- Is it necessary to search for a national identity?
Eusebius McKaiser is a well-known social and political commentator who is determined to raise the level of debate in South Africa while simultaneously making sure that the debates are accessible to everyone. With no tolerance for sloppy logic or emotion-disguised-as-logic Eusebius tackles the thorny issues of race, sexuality, and culture in South Africa. His writing is relentlessly honest, at times very personal and tackles issues with rigorous logic. Don’t expect political correctness from this writer! McKaiser represents a new generation of South African commentator – at times humorous, willing to show his humanity and completely engaged in what makes South Africa tick.
