Come see horror live Selassie

ALLOW me to respond to Marcus Selassie’s drivel (“Shame on you sellouts”, Independent, January 6). The letter is a splendid example of the adage that a little knowledge is very dangerous.

Instead of writing from the “white supremacist” comfort of “Amerikkka”, our blind friend should come to Zimbabwe and experience a Damascene rude awakening.

I invite Selassie to first come to Zimbabwe and experience what it means to live in fear every second of one’s life.

I for one would not mind staying in “Amerikkka” if that means preserving my life or limb. I deduce from Selassie’s tone that he wouldn’t mind swapping places with me so that he can suffer first-hand torture, rape, and other horrors.

My invitation to Selassie is not made in jest.
