Black people can't be racist

07 April 2012, 15:18

Having recently moved back to South Africa from Niger I am perplexed by all the Racism in this country. We left during apartheid. I came back because there is not much economic wise positive in Niger.

What bugs me most is the number of white people who say black man is racist. This is simply not possible.

For instance: In Africa there is 800 million blacks and around 5 million whites. Yet historically we have been enslaved, tortured, discriminated and sometimes hated- just because we have not the same level of education as the colonials who benefitted heavy from Greek and Roman empires.

For a few hundred years africans have had to fight for our land back, dignity , wealth and fairness. In South Africa the president in 1994 reached one hundred percent compromise with the occupiers, stating that all are equal. It is not so in other place in Africa like Congo and Zimbabwe where the indigenous people took violent revenge.

As a result of this compromise South Africa has flourished into what must be the Super Power of Africa. There are many wealth people black and white.

I have to ask that given the fact that white people have continued life as is one hundred perecent as it was during apartheid, how then can they say that Blacks hate them? marginilise them? and is racest towards them?

No, a South African black is not racist, he is the most forgiving, accomodating , respectful and kind and gentle.

BEE is not racially motivated. It is entirely economic. It is unfortunate that the poorest people in the country are the same ones hindered by Suprematist laws. The fact that we need to be given an "unfair advantage" is possibly the only sensible way to achieve equilibrium. I cant forsee BEE lasting forever and I doubt the ANC will rule forever, it is simply a neccessary, painful phase that is required for now.

It would be very nice for some white people to see all the clear advantage of South Africa, instead of sit on website complaining how bad it is.

Life's great, white people are great, black people are great!

Who benefits when the rand falls?

It seems to me that every time the Rand is doing well, there is some announcement from the Presidency or the NPA that sends the currency into free fall or generates a strong rally. Read more...
