UCT Students Say Science is Racist, Discuss African Black Magic

A discussion on science devolved into the truly bizarre this week at the University of Cape Town (UCT).

The meeting of activists and faculty of UCT featured one student saying “Science as a whole is a product of Western modernity and the whole thing should be scratched off. Especially in Africa.”

The group of students, insisting that science is racist and must be “decolonised”, have created the hashtag #ScienceMustFall to describe their “fallist” movement.
