In a deeply concerning incident that has brought the issue of racism in educational institutions to the forefront, Shanette Tiquin, the Executive Head at Curro Protea Glen, allegedly made derogatory and racially offensive comments towards teacher Nonkululeko Gwatyu, referring to her as a ‘Monkey.’ Disturbingly, it has been claimed that certain South African media companies chose to protect Tiquin by refusing to publish her pictures, exacerbating the problem of accountability in such cases.
However, on Sunday, August 6, 2023, the Truth Panther, an independent media entity, bravely decided to break the silence and posted pictures of Shanette Tiquin, the alleged white racist, alongside her offensive comments directed at the black teacher. This courageous move has sparked a critical discussion about the media’s role in upholding transparency and fairness while holding individuals accountable for their actions.
The incident surrounding Shanette Tiquin has put the spotlight on racism within educational institutions and the pressing need for accountability. The reluctance of certain media outlets to expose her face raises questions about their responsibility to report on important matters that impact society at large. The practice of shielding individuals from the consequences of their discriminatory behavior fosters a climate of impunity and undermines the struggle for racial equality.
By exposing Shanette Tiquin’s racist remarks and shedding light on the systemic issues at play, the Truth Panther’s actions have the potential to instigate a thorough investigation into the matter. It is crucial that appropriate measures are taken to address any discriminatory behavior and promote an inclusive and equitable environment for all within the education sector.
The case of Shanette Tiquin at Curro Protea Glen has brought forth a critical examination of racism within educational institutions and the role of media outlets in promoting accountability and transparency. The Truth Panther’s courageous decision to publish Tiquin’s pictures challenges the prevailing trend of shielding individuals from the consequences of their actions. We must collectively strive for a society where racist attitudes are not tolerated, and everyone can learn and teach in a safe and equitable environment. It is our collective responsibility to support the eradication of racism and create an educational landscape that respects and celebrates diversity.
