The Caster Semenya Effect


South African black women have unconsciously been holding out for a hero. A hero who will show us that it is normal to be black and excellent. We didn’t recognise that Caster, our golden girl, is our hero.

Caster Semenya won Gold at the 2016 Rio Olympics and silenced everyone who said she couldn’t. Silenced everyone who said she shouldn’t. Silenced everyone who said she wouldn’t.

Society marginalises black women every day by deciding what they should be, who they should be instead of letting our minds wonder and let us be who we want to be and do what we want to do.

We like Semenya need to run from society who told us not to do it. Run from society who told us we won’t do it. We need to run 200 meters ahead and let them know that we are golden.


Thank you Mokgadi Caster Semenya for sprinkling your magic on us. Not only have you affected South African black women but South Africans as a whole. We to will run to our glory.
