9781431405237: Black Man's Medicine

A politically incorrect and humorous read, this racial satire will challenge one’s perspective of today’s South Africa. The title of the book comes from the African adage that says “the black man’s medicine is a white man”—an egregious statement that implies that black people won’t do anything right unless there is a white man around. This book takes a tongue-in-cheek look at economic freedom, suggesting that although South African apartheid was a terrible and unfortunate part of history, it should no longer define the present challenges or prevent the myriad opportunities for success. Introducing the idea of self-economic empowerment, this book envisions a new Africa where people work hard and life is decent.

Book Description Jacana Media (Pty) Ltd, South Africa, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Brett Murray s painting The Spear is going to look tame when compared to Black man s medicine. The title of the book comes from the African adage that says: The Black Man s Medicine is a White man. It implies that black people won t do anything right, unless there is a white man around, or that black people won t be satisfied with anything unless it has been done by a white man. Black man s medicine is about economic freedom. It introduces the idea that SEE (self-economic empowerment) is the new BEE. Most importantly, it insists that apartheid was a terrible and unfortunate part of our shared history but should no longer define our present challenges and myriad opportunities for success. In essence this book is about moving from mud and dust, through the boardroom and on to a new Africa, where people work hard and life is decent. This is the third book written by Muzi Kuzwayo and it follows the roaring successes of Marketing Through Mud and Dust and There s a Tsotsi in the Boardroom. It is a fun, easy read that will challenge the way we all think about our roles in South Africa today. Bookseller Inventory # AAZ9781431405237
