Advocators of AA/BEE

19 October 2012, 13:15

This morning I read an article entitled “Some perspective for racist whites in SA” by Hanjo.  If you haven’t yet read it please do so.  http://www.news24.com/MyNews24/Some-perspective-for-racist-whites-in-SA-20121012.  In his letter, Hanjo basically says the following things:

a)      He advocates AA/BEE - provides the reason that it is to “undo the past” and to “level the playing field”

b)      He says that most whites are racist – basically states that whites “reach for their racist agenda” when dealing or debating this topic.  Considering that the majority of whites do not support AA/BEE, he is implying that most whites are racist.

Besides his negative stereotyping of one specific race, which by definition is racist, I also find it disturbing that he directs his argument solely at whites, not Indians, Coloureds, Asians, and yes Hanjo, even Blacks that also do not support AA/BEE.  I’d question your motives for ignoring these groups when discussing a topic that affects an entire country which you call “a democracy”.

What are you advocating?

Those that support the current AA/BEE system usually provide the same argument that Hanjo has in order to advocate AA/BEE.  But what are you really supporting:

a)      You are backing a system which takes jobs and wealth from one racial group and gives it to another racial group.  This is racist and unconstitutional.  In a country with huge unemployment figures, you promote the transfer jobs and wealth rather than the creation thereof.

b)      You support a system that uses time and money which could rather be used on issues such as “crime, poor governance, poverty, unemployment, over population, education, etc”.  It is as evident as night and day that government puts more emphasis on transformation than it does on issues which you say are important.   It makes sense however, as taking from the whites and giving to the blacks is far easier and cheaper than dealing with these important issues.

c)       You advocate a system that seeks to replace the skilled candidates with weaker candidates based solely on race, thus weakening the entire team, in which case everyone loses.

d)      You vote for a system that at present is enriching only a select few, and was designed by a select few, who steal hundreds of billions of rands each year from the citizens of this country.

e)      You endorse a system which is a paradox to nation building and racial harmony.  A system which mimics Apartheid.

I challenge you

Come with me to one of the thousands of white Afrikaner squatter camps around the country which hold almost a million white Afrikaners and do the following:

a)      Justify to these peace loving, law abiding people why they had their jobs taken away and why they are now unemployable, thus left unable to support their children because they are white.

b)      Justify to them why they are refused jobs even when there are vacancies which have been open for months, even years.  And why in some cases government will even import foreigners above qualified locals because they are white.

c)       Justify to them why they are refused government aid such as grants and food aid because they are white, and are even told by government officials that “it is racist to feed poor whites”.

d)      Justify to them why government is even refusing to support those charities (non-profit organisations) which provide care and support to whites.

This is the system which you support and openly advocate, a system which has all the characteristics of genocide.
