You’ve got to love when moonbattery blows up in the slack faces of social justice warriors — as when a black Oxford student righteously refused to tip a waitress to punish her for being white, and well-wishers compensated by giving her the tip of her life:
Ashleigh Schultz, 24, was reduced to tears when Ntokozo Qwabe – a leader of the campaign to remove a Cecil Rhodes statue at Oxford – and a friend wrote on their cafe bill: ‘We will give tip when you return the land.’
This happened at Obz Cafe in the Western Cape, South Africa, where the whites who brought civilization to the region centuries ago have already given up most everything in the name of political correctness. But no sacrifice will ever be enough, so long as white people are still using up the land underneath their own feet.
He bragged online that they had made her cry ‘typical white tears’, leaving him ‘unable to stop smiling because something so black and wonderful had happened’.
Here’s why Qwabe and his “radical non-binary trans black activist” friend were able to evoke the white tears he gloatingly relishes:
Miss Schultz’s friends said she had already been feeling low as her mother has cancer.
One said: ‘She has a very sick mother she cares for, and had to move flat recently and is worried about all of this. She did burst into tears because she is having a tough time at present.’
For once a sordid story of social justice has a happy ending:
Online campaigns sprang up to ‘tip the waitress’ and [Saturday] night they had pledges topping £2,000 [$2,933].
Since then donations have reportedly topped R100,000, or $7,000.
Regarding the statue of Cecil Rhodes, the great philanthropist who probably did more good for Africa than anyone who has lived since,
South African Mr Qwabe is a Rhodes scholar at Oxford University, meaning he receives money from the Rhodes estate to study.
But he is also one of the leaders of the Rhodes Must Fall movement, which wants the statue of the 19th-century imperialist removed from Oriel College.
Ostentatiously biting the hand that feeds has been an effective strategy for people like Qwabe, who most likely relies heavily on white guilt for his privileged life. The only drawback is that it requires the complicity of the supposed oppressors, which might not always be forthcoming.
Miss Schultz ended up with quite a tip.
