All whites are racist

07 March 2013, 17:10

The basic definition of racism is to judge people on grounds of race and to label one race superior to another. Now, let me ask you- If the government was WHITE, stole billions, being corrupt to the core, letting police drag people to death behind police vans, executing a bunch of miners in a strike, letting the infrastructure go to waste, would you still say nothing?

By “letting it slide” we are racist. People will moan about bad service from a white individual but will shut up when the same bad service is given by a black individual. The whole idea of the white liberal individual trying to uplift the blacks is in its core racist. What you are saying is they cannot do this on their own because they are black...

BEE is in its core a racist system. It denies whites work and telling black people, “Hey, you can’t get the job on merit so now we will help you”. Anybody who supports BEE is a racist. BEE and AA is built on the exact same principles as Apartheid, but you don’t see people taking to the streets and burning down classrooms... Why is that? Is it because we are afraid of government? Do we feel government is superior?

The use of the word racism is overrated. Science proves that some races are superior to others like Asians having a higher I.Q. than other races, making science racist. Sport is racist. Look at the 100m final and you will suffer to find a white man there, looking at the swimming pool, whites seem to do better. Point is- one race is superior to another in some disciplines.

The problem in South Africa is that we are so scared out of our minds to be called a racist that we shut up. We don’t want to say anything about anything because than you are a racist. When did we start believing this crap? If farm murders are 90% white old people being murdered by young black man we should be able to say it without fear of being called a racist, because it is a fact!

Whites in South-Africa, especially the conservative Afrikaans speaking group, are just ignored. The reason is that we are too afraid to agree with them, because maybe it is racist. We will rather die than to be called a racist. That is how racist we are. We don’t tackle the issues, because we are so racist that we are afraid to be racist. Want to talk about real racism, talk about government, talk about BEE, talk about AA.

This idea that it will all go away at some point is an illusion created by the scared white man. It is a safety net we created to justify our cowardice. Once we start to tackle issues head on, no matter the skin colour of the man on the other side, then racism will end. Then we will get somewhere. But as long as we shut up, we are nothing less than pathetic little racists.... All of us...

Religious freedom!

I was raised in a religious family. Brought up to believe that life has no meaning, if not lived for God. That you are not free, if you do not believe. Enslaved by sin. Read more...

The Xenophobic attacks should be regarded with great contempt, and our society should carefully scrutinise the symptoms that drive these recurring incidences. Read more...

An open letter to us

I’ll start off with white South Africans. How many of you believe that the African continent will never develop because the political leaders are black? Read more...

Xenophobia, or racism?

Xenophobia is described as ‘a fear, dislike, or prejudice against people from other countries.’ If you substitute ‘countries’ with ‘race’ then you have the description of racism. In my view the two are simply the same thing. Read more...
