Does South Africa’s Black-Phobic Blacks Suffer Inferiority Complex?

AFRICANGLOBE - Why South African Blacks unleash their indignation against another fellow Black rather than share their wrath against all? This the question being asked by the continent as to how the red or white are spared but targeted the vulnerable Blacks of the same flesh and blood. South African Blacks are notorious for their xenophobia which only seem reserved for Black immigrants from the continent.
