South African black business should rise above petty squabbles and build a developmental state.
Nyiko Floyd Shivambu
The squabbles encountering black business formations and their white counterparts in the aspiring Developmental State of South Africa is a reflection of the class and racial contradictions that continue to underpin South African society as atavistic remnants of apartheid and its ideologies of white supremacy and African subjugation. In the process of squabbling, what is supposed to be progressive black business is missing the point on what should be its role in the aspiring Developmental State of South Africa. It appears that the contentions of the Black Management Forum breakaway are centred on the emphasis of black inclusion into the colonial economy of South Africa.
