Thank you all for signing this petition. We have made positive strides in disrupting dominant and often racist narratives about Coloured identity. The publisher and author has agreed to stop the sale of the book until the chapter is revised.
The book has been reported to the Human Rights Commission by other's who also took it upon themselves to make a stand against racism and misinformation. We will be following this closely.
I am saddened that bookstores like Exclusive Books do not understand how important representation is and that continuing the sale of such material is an act against progression.
I will be closing the petition as my aim to raise awareness and put an end to the redistribution of the book has been achieved and many have been mobilised.
Thank you all once again. We cannot be rendered invisible any longer!

Remove racist and defamatory books
We have achieved the main aim of the campaign. Redistribution of the book has been stopped. Awareness has been raised. However it seems Exclusive Books will continue to sell the book, stay tuned for more info.
