Questions over Woolworths whistleblower

2012-09-06 14:02

Cape Town – The integrity of Justin Harrison, the blogger who started a war of words on social networking sites on Woolworths Holdings [JSE:WHL] allegedly racist employment policies, has come under fire.

2oceansvibe ran an exclusive on Thursday on Harrison’s social networking activities, begging the question if he is possibly South Africa’s biggest online fake.

“Following an extensive investigation, 2oceansvibe can reveal that the blogger whistleblower has some integrity/challenging skeletons of his own,” the website reported.

Harrison, self-proclaimed internationally recognised internet marketing expert and internet marketing entrepreneur, blogged on Sunday that Woolworths SA blatantly posted ads on its career site that excluded whites.

“As a post apartheid child, I am neither politically motivated or (sic) inspired, however the increasing blatant racist economic policies that are very clearly exclusive of whites is starting to require a voice and some decisive action,” he wrote.

He has repeatedly stressed that his vocal campaign against Woolworths has nothing to do with boosting his own public profile.

Concerned about only doing the “right” thing, Harrison wrote: “I think it’s high time that in 2012 businesses stop cowering to the ANC lead government and realise it is their customers that keep the lights on, not government or government policy.

“If South African businesses continue to marginalise any sector of the population, black, white, colored (sic) or Indian they face the wrath of public led justice and we will see these companies economically crippled.”

In answer to a tweet of Afrikaans singer Steve Hofmeyr, he tweeted: “I just know what I am standing for here…”

Stressing that the exposé has nothing to do with the strength or weakness of Harrison’s dispute with Woolworths, 2oceansvibe said its examination of Harrison’s online behaviour is only to see whether it  squares with his repeated exhortations to do what is morally right.

The 2oceansvibe investigation showed that:

• Harrison, who has an impressive number of followers, is relatively unknown in the South African twittersphere.
• 15 000 of his followers have never sent a tweet, and a further 5 000 have tweeted 1 to 49 times only.
• Harrison was called out for the high number of fake followers on his account as far back as 2009.
• On August 9 2012, his already-inflated twitter following jumped from 17 500 followers to a staggering 44 000 in a single day.
• Two videos on Harrison’s YouTube account have garnered 10 646 and 10 523 views respectively. The viewership is not only almost identical, but is excessive for a highly niche subject, produced and uploaded in South Africa.
• On Facebook, Harrison boasts 34 631 likes. That is in comparison with his closest “competitors” Quirk (2 158 FB likes) and Hello Computer DraftFCB (713), two of South Africa’s most critically acclaimed digital marketing agencies. The social media arm of history’s most culturally-pervasive ad agency, Ogilvy Mather (global), fails to even make it past the 10 000 mark on Facebook likes.

Harrison failed to respond to numerous requests for comment.

Instead, he pointed 2oceansvibe to a paragraph in his latest blogpost: “I will also not be doing ANY press interviews or answering ANY press questions, as this is not about raising my profile or pushing my own agenda.

“It’s about getting the people of South Africa talking to each other and using the only medium I know how to get that happening.”

Meanwhile, Woolworths has disabled its Facebook wall.

The retailer said this decision was not taken lightly: “When your page becomes little more than a platform for a well-orchestrated campaign of hate speech, we owe it to our customers not to subject them to such vitriol in our own house.”

In a notice posted on its wall, Woolworths said it has in a variety of channels repeatedly refuted the claims and has allowed thousands of comments debating the pros and cons of employment equity as a national debate, but  “we have to put our customers first”.

    Smoke screen! Shooting the messenger! Or whatever. I am still boycotting Woolies..

      jason.marriott.75 - 2012-09-06 14:39

      hehehe angry white people, I have heard what I want to and nothing will make me change my mind!!! Probably an element of truth and I'm very sure alot of bullshit as well. I was in woolworths yesterday its just as busy as it always is.

      nrgx.nrg - 2012-09-06 14:47

      Precisely, what the hell does the number of "twitter followers" have to do with racist employment policies. Just an attempt (a weak one at that) to discredit the author for bringing the the truth to light.

      jason.children - 2012-09-06 14:48

      I don't care who he is, I went and checked the Woolworth's ads out myself. They definitely excluded whites and therefore my money will go elsewhere. And before someone says that's BEE its NOT, you are allowed to give preference to a certain group but you absolutely are not allowed to completely refuse a group. Whites are allowed to apply for BEE jobs even if we are the last considered. Woolies completely shut us out and that my friends is Racist.

      Michael - 2012-09-06 15:22

      Whatever helps you sleep at night dewald... personally I think everybody is making a big deal about nothing. They NEED the drama.

      leon.mare.7 - 2012-09-06 15:23

      I'm with you, they'll find a way to talk themselves out of this

      aaron.radebe.1 - 2012-09-06 15:38

      @dewalds3 Couldn't put it better myself. Prime example of an ad hominem attack. Seriously? The best they can come up with is that he has some fake twitter followers and identical amounts of Youtube views? For this reason, News24 runs headlines proclaiming him an "Online Fake"? Please. Talk about a hatchet job. Smacks of desperation from the liberal camp - if you can't defend the argument, attack the man.

      mart.botha - 2012-09-06 15:41

      Yip...I have been boycotting for quite a while i.v.o. their disrespect for the local textile industry.....they sell plenty Made in China clothing that is robbing locals of work opportunities. Besides they are elitest to the nth degree....so up their kilts.

      sanda.mnyazi - 2012-09-06 15:49

      And all these white people are lying saying they will boycott woolies, uwow they never seize to amaze me

      adam.gardener.12 - 2012-09-06 16:02

      I also cant stand Noleen/woolworth advertising "chat" show. Switch TV off whenever she comes on.

      If my skin colour is not good enough, then my white money is also not good enough.

      Impressive investigation into Justin Harrison, but what has it got to do with what he pointed out regarding Woolworths's anti white job adverts?

      Wasn't 2Oceansvibe the online radio station that turned out to be massively overstating their listener numbers? Just asking.

      THATS VERY RICH COMING FROM TWO OCENS VIBE 'RADIO' !!! THIS TWO BIT INTERNET PISS-POT NOISE STATION WAS TELLING ADVERTISER THAT THEY HAD 247 000 LISTENERS WHEN BUT WHE THEY WERE AUDITED THEY ONLY HAD A MEASELY 4 000!! NOW WHO IS THE LIER!!

      jo.barton.92 - 2012-09-07 07:39

      WW have really got themselves in a mess over something that they are forced to do.They are not the only companies to do so.I hear a lot of Black people complaining about how SAA and the railways etc used to only employ White people in senior positions or as pilots,train drivers, marine pilots, majority of state owned companies had white only policies for artisans etc. Yes, we all get it: Apartheid was horrible and should have never happened. BUT is this not what the ANC vowed to NEVER again see in their lifetime? Is this not what all fought for? So why do we need this?Kids that are completing matric today have all attended the same education system, so should those kids then not have the same playing field?

  • ace.venture.3762 - 2012-09-06 14:35

    Woolworths spindoctors have woken up, they're running scared. For the sake of your childrens future, Boycott these racist warthogs!

      trevor.myburgh.12 - 2012-09-06 16:28

      Hey, don't you see they are now trying to get you take the eye of the ball. Malema, ANC, thieves. los vir Woolies af

  • sisie.indola - 2012-09-06 14:35

    What are Woolworth's so afraid of. They know they won't lose customers - it's the only place that you can buy groceries (at a price) on credit. So what if their cashiers aren't the best, at least they don't shout at the top of their voices to their friends, having a normal conversation, who are standing not a meter away.

  • elgh.elgh - 2012-09-06 14:36

    Your excuse or reasons for doing what you’re doing still does not hide your clear intensions. I hope this little stunt or point scoring exercise was worth your while. I'm actually referring to Woolworths and not the blogger.

  • raven.sqarr - 2012-09-06 14:42

    closest “competitors” Quirk (2 158 FB likes) and Hello Computer DraftFCB (713) These 'competitors' must suck badly, because i personally know some Suicide Girls with more likes than that - and they're not even into advertising?!?!?!

  • jp.leroux.33 - 2012-09-06 14:46

    Regardless of what he has or hasn't done it doesn't change what he brought to light, even if he did post this for his own personal gain, to be famous or infamous, it still doesn't change what they did. Keep on spinning Woolies.....we are all waiting with baited breath for your next diversion , I mean move...

  • tokeloshe - 2012-09-06 14:46

    I will not be boycotting Woolworths - they are merely following the laws of the land

      joahan.smal - 2012-09-06 14:56

      Yeah, unlike so many, many, many ANC cadres Tokelosh

  • don.frost.581 - 2012-09-06 14:46

    Fake whistleblower? Who cares? Woolworths are never getting my cash again!! RACISTS!

  • Christopher.Riley.co.za - 2012-09-06 14:49

    I have at least learnt from it now - I thought it was fine to request BEE candidates - Also thinking it would be wrong if the table was turned and requesting White only candidates - It seems that our laws are pushing us into a direction where we can not do business without breaking some or OTHER law - This is VERY concerning!! You must have a GOOD BEE Scorecard - But you cannot request BEE Positions

      beverly.young3 - 2012-09-07 05:27

      REVISED BROAD-BASED BLACK ECONOMIC EMPOWERMENT (B-BBEE) CODES OF GOOD PRACTICE. Cabinet noted the revised B-BBEE Codes of Good Practice 2012 and approved that these be published for public comment. The revised Codes will enhance the implementation of B-BBEE in a meaningful and sustainable manner, and contain principles and guidelines that will facilitate and accelerate the implementation of B-BBEE. The purpose of the Codes is to assist and advise the public and private sectors in the implementation of the B-BBEE Act. Key areas of refinement include: * The generic scorecard has been reduced to five elements, with Employment Equity and Management Control being consolidated, and Preferential Procurement and Enterprise Development merged to form a Supplier Development Element * The points for Ownership have been broadened to include designated groups in the main points * Thresholds for Exempted Micro Enterprises (EME's under R 5 million) and Qualifying Small Enterprises (QSE's Under R 35 million) have been adjusted; * All companies, except Exempted Micro Enterprises, will be required to comply with the five elements of the B-BBEE scorecard; * The introduction of the priority elements: ownership, skills development and supplier development. Large enterprises are to comply with all three priority elements. The priority scores of entities that do not comply with sub-minimum requirements in each priority will be discounted; This goes on and on. Just saying

  • neil.harris.370177 - 2012-09-06 15:02

    I don't know why I waste my time with Fin24, WTF does this have to do with the Woolworths allegation. Are they racist or not? I speak for myself here but I dont give a flying hoot who this Justin Harrison is except for the veracity of the statement!!! hahaha well done woolies for now making a bigger ass of yourselves by not dealing with the issue at hand but rather playing the man!!! what tools!!! FOOD LOVERS MARKET here I come.

      ninjacraig - 2012-09-06 20:24

      Try re-reading the article again. Slowly this time. You might find that it was 2oceansvibe that came up with the report on who Justin is and has nothing to do with woolies... I wonder who just made the bigger ass of themselves ;)

  • tendai.gono - 2012-09-06 15:12

    People should realise that this is a bigger than it seems here. The whole BEE thing doesnt work. They need to stop this and let people be hired on merit

      dieter.oberholzer.7 - 2012-09-06 16:13

      wish i could put more than 1 like for this comment. this whole BEE story is a bunch of rubbish. a good way for the ANC to get more followers. companies should be hiring people based on their ability to do the job, not based on their race.

      allhaleto.theale - 2012-09-06 16:44

      I'd be embarrassed if I got a job because of my skin colour. Hopefully they do get rid of BEE as I think one thing it does do is perpetuate the racial divide.

      renny.meere - 2012-09-06 17:08

      Yep I agree. BEE are telling blacks that they aren't actually good enough by themselves to get the job but need the Government to help. Well let me tell you Mr. Government you are building a weak race, youare insulting your own people.

      DuToitCoetzee - 2012-09-06 17:11

      BEE is insulting black workers. It could have been good if it was practice right. EDUCATION AND THE BEST MAN GETS THE JOB. I have witness it were even a black client will skip a salesman because he is black. They ask him for his boss or pass him for a whitey. The irony was that this salesman was the best that the branch ever had on their floor. The salesman said that was a normal happening and it p@ss him off because clients think he is there because of his color and think there will be some-one better to help them. Only when the boss recommend him as the best the client will talk to him, but he said than the wait and see attitude is there already. He said even his own color or people from his street think he was put there to balance the race issue. We have brilliant black people/workers, but this "tagging" of them is not fair. They must find another way of solving this problem.

  • kevin.ian.583 - 2012-09-06 15:14

    Well done Woolworths ; you dont have to play the man rather address your racism problem. I saw your adverts on your PNET web page last night "ONLY african ; coulards & Indians may apply" in other words you will not accept CV'S from white persons.

      jay.vyas.984 - 2012-09-06 16:16

      Hi KEVIN, You are 100% correct. Please Cut & Paste the P Net Advert and post it on this Comments Site! That way ALL , including Woolworths HR can see what the REAL ISSUE IS! I Rest My Case BTW, Do Not Buy an E tag!!!! EVER!!!!

  • michael.barns.1 - 2012-09-06 15:26

    um who cares anything about this bloke, the main crux is about Woolworths policy with regards to hiring people. How typical that they quickly try and crucify this guy for telling the truth? Well I'll never shop at Woolworths again infact I went to Pick n Pay today! :)

  • bob.small.7547 - 2012-09-06 15:36

    The character, good or bad, of the whistle blower, has screw all to do with anybody provided the said allegation are factually true! That’s all that counts, is Woolies discriminating or not!

  • grant.logan.94 - 2012-09-06 15:39

    What kind of jobs did Woolworths advertise? Cashiers? How many white people would even consider such a job?

      Dawn Campbell Gibson - 2012-09-06 15:52

      Grant - the point is, did they have the option to apply? there are many white people who would sweep the streets if that would feed their families.

      jannie.beirowski - 2012-09-06 16:00

      Grant, just count the number of unemployed whites and you have your answer!

  • lee.theron.9 - 2012-09-06 15:45

    I myself saw the add on Gumtree and whites were excluded.

  • markrobyn.dupreez - 2012-09-06 15:46

    Point is.... Is what he said true???? If yes..... then what should his personal background have to do with what he said? Please.... this is so typical.... Justin Harrison: I don't care about your past or motives, just make sure what you reveal is true! Otherwise, thank you for letting us know.

  • danie.strydom.7 - 2012-09-06 15:52

    Old news. Of course it is possible to have more twitter followers and manipulate the like button on facebook. http://edition.cnn.com/2012/08/02/tech/social-media/facebook-fake-accounts/index.html The fact that he knows to use the ability creatively to do his chosen professions ( INTERNET MARKETING ) should then not be news worthy. It's like saying a mechanic has fixed some cars before. The FACT should be focused on the issue : Is the employment policy non racists and fair?

  • Elise - 2012-09-06 15:52

    So they won't employ white people but will allow white people to shop there! Just ridiculous. Let's boycott this racist company

  • kieron.beets - 2012-09-06 15:58

    Can you say ANC tactics??? Trying to divert attention... No woolworse for me, and Thank you Harrison, we need more people like you!

  • kevin.ian.583 - 2012-09-06 16:00

    On woolworths corporate employment site th following can be found for one single job I looked up """Woolworths is committed to the principles of employment equity DESIGNATED EE - (African, Coloured & Indian only) """....Their racist adverts are still there

  • marc.moon.10 - 2012-09-06 16:03

    this policy is against my moral beliefs and as such, because I have control over where and how I spend money, I will boycot WW just based on that fact, everyone else is entitled to do as they please ... i know what I'm going to do...

  • leon.combrink.7 - 2012-09-06 16:10

    White South Africans (I am one too) need to realise that whether we like it or not, 99% of us benefited from apartheid. In order for our democracy to work, the inequality and injustice of the past must be addressed.The black majority was prohibited from accessing the mainstream economy, and we all went to nice schools build by underpaid and marginalised people. Black economic empowerment and employment equity are a necessity to try to address some of the issues. Woolworths, like every other company in the country, is encouraged (not forced) to try to improve the representation of formally disadvantaged people in its employment ranks. If you think Woolworths is the only company who is looking for skilled black employees, pick up a newspaper and look at how many job adverts state "AA" or "EE". Woolworths are not racist, they are rather forward thinking, and are trying to find the best way to get their business to reflect our diverse country. Part of what I do is to verify BEE scorecards for companies, so I have heard all the gripes about how bad BEE is, and how unfair it is. However, I have come to know and understand what BEE and EE is about, and it has the potential to do a lot of good for this country. Sure it is not perfect, and there is a lot I would like to change myself, but the best thing we can do is embrace and support the process, to make it as effective as possible. It is companies like Woolworths that will enable us to move on faster.

      rosa.demelo - 2012-09-06 16:28

      Yes BEE by all means but qualified people not getting brother and sister and aunty and grandmother oh i forgot uncles and aunties, employed to fill the post left open by unfaily dismissed whites!!!!! that is the reason our government departments are in the state they are in !!!!!!!!!

      rosa.demelo - 2012-09-06 16:40

      Yes BEE by all means,but fill posts left open by qualified people and not by brothers and sisters and mother and father and aunty and uncle or grandamother and grandfather, or someone that paid you a holiday somewere!!!!! that is the reason our government departments are in the state they are in, qualified employees lives made unberable at work so they would resign so those post would be made available for family members qualified or not.In 100 years all the problems in SA will still be blamed on apartheid its the easy way out for those ruining our beautiful country PROUD TO BE SOUTH AFRICAN .........

      leon.combrink.7 - 2012-09-06 16:43

      @NotBlackEnough - Read a bit of the history of Malasia. There are many challenges that still face us in the future. If we keep fighting change, rather than finding better ways to implement change, we will waste our energy on a hopeless cause. Ie: change will happen, accept it and make it work for everyone.

    and your story means what ??? Are you trying to create a diversion by focussing on the messenger and ignoring if its true what the messenger said ? You sound like a typical anc spokesperson. Talking around the truth instead of investigating the truth

  • J.A.Rademan - 2012-09-06 16:30

    The buying demographic should be closely matched by the serving demographic, else there will be service disparity. Companies in SA are so scared no to be found politically incorrect or anti black that they risk losing the buying power of their other customers. Who do you thing is making the rules at Woolies. Apartheid has returned and is now called BEE.

  • rosa.truter - 2012-09-06 16:32

    The guy is a fake. You idiots, should boycott all SA companies then. Even the cellphone companies and the Internet you use. I am sure this guy has some issue with WW. All SA companies have to comply with the law. Easy as that. Whether I like it or not, it is the truth. If you boycot WW, you should boycott Eskom, DSTV, Telkom and all SA Banks. We really have a very uniformed public in this country.

  • henk.tredoux.7 - 2012-09-06 16:50

    I worked for a company that was BEE, and our new "branch manger" was basking with pride that she landed this job, fresh out of varsity and can now afford all the trimmings of capitalism. During a conversation she said " Im a black diamond and darling face it, black is the flavour of the month" to which I replied "darling, let me give you a (white) pearl of advice, a month normally 30 days long"

  • jillgabrielahenning - 2012-09-06 17:01

    too pathetic for words - idiotic people listening to politicians - STOP BLAMING WOOLWORTHS - BLAME THE GOVERNMENT - THE ANC MADE IT HAPPEN

  • jillgabrielahenning - 2012-09-06 17:03

    The beauty is there will be no queues at woolies and i will shop like a queen - oh by the way why dont you all boycott all the companies that have a BEE policy - go read the adds quickly - when posting add you can state if it is a BEE position but you cant say if you want a white - so now where are you going to buy anything from - rather boycott something real

  • Roche Enslin - 2012-09-06 18:23

    Its sad that this kind of thing has to start with Woolworths but the racist ANC government policies need to stop. As kids we are told time and again two wrongs don't make a right. Government policies and our 'leaders' desire to self enrich and corruption that knows no limits are slowly taking this country to the bottom of the third world list. The educated SA black, white, coloured and Indian's are starting to recognize the fact that soon the decision will be 1) stay and live in Zimbabwe part 2- total collapse of everything, 2) leave the country of our birth and family and try else where. Racist policies by any name Apartheid, BEE, AA, EE is racism. It breeds hate and devides a nation. After Nelsons leadership the ANC has nothing left to offer but greed and failure. Their time has come and gone. We now need to wait and hope the masses will realize this and act before its to late for us to move on so we can start to fix this country and build for our children, not plunder for personal gain like the ANC government.

    While I have long been unable to afford to shop at woolworths, I will join the trolley boycott - I will go out my way to fill and abandon a few trollies a day, making sure that tomatoes,fancy breads,cakes etc are at the bottom, thereby doing my bit to hit their bottomline. Already trolley boycotters have forced a few shops to close their doors. Its time we stand up enough to make companies question the laws. Wollies today ... who knows who tomorrow ... its about being heard.

    If the blogger is such a fake with all the followers and fans etc, then how could this issue caught fire so quickly in the bloger shpere and mainstream media and at such a big scale. This has reached 100's to 1000's of people.

    2Oceansvibe... makes a not never to join them as they cannot keep their information secret. Just imagine if they can write this to how many other people they will sell your details.

    Well done Justin, we are behind you. Pathetic (and typical) of the sell-out media in SA to try to attack you personally! I support your stance against racist SA government policies and the slavish support by businesss. The mere fact that Woolworths' statement says 'they support those ANC (racist) employment policies' makes me sick! My family an I continue to support the boycott. "..evil can only prevail if good people stop resisting it.."

    Woolworths has disabled their Facebook wall - can't take the heat, can you?

    A barrage of misinformation to attempt a diversion, methinks. Focus boys focus!

    Hahaha, woolies might be wrong, but this guy has screwed himself in the prosses. Idiot

    I had to deal with the Woolies senior people of all shades and persuasions over a period of 8 years and can say that without exception they were an extremely arrogant bunch, it was as if they all had to go to a woolies training school to pick up the attitude!! that advert is typical of their "gat Kruip" attitude to the powers that be, any other Company with a sense of how good manners in business works would have advertised the post and then sifted through the replies to fill the quota needed, and that would have been the end of it. Judging by the panicky email they sent my wife, trying to plead their case, they at least got a wake up call and realised that the real power in this Country comes out of our pockets!!
