‘Blacks are cockroaches’


A Limpopo man has called black beach-goers cockroaches, in the latest racist Facebook rant.

Last year, almost to the day, Penny Sparrow was in the spotlight for likening black people to monkeys, eventually ending in Sparrow having to pay R150 000 to the Oliver and Adelaide Tambo Foundation in June.

Resident of Naboomspruit, Phillip Roodt said in his post that black people were cockroaches who stole money to go on holiday. He said he hoped they would drown one by one, News24 reports.

News24 exposed Ben Sasonof, of Sandton, after he compared black bathers to faeces in December.

Roodt is 59 and self-employed as a boilermaker.

He did not respond when asked for comment.
