Brutus expounds on Special Branch interference in sports in line with apartheid ideology of white dominance. Instances of harassment of people and events connected with the South African Sports Association (SASA) are mentioned. Brutus ridicules the apartheid practice of excluding blacks from sports teams and giving black athletes belittling awards. Inequality on the sportsfield is linked to inequalities in democracy in the country and people are urged to look beyond the sportsfield to the realities of the country.
