Eliminating racism

01 February 2013, 09:13

"Caucasian" - what an ugly word!
Is that like the word: "Kallit"?

How do you see yourself, Peter?
Do you see yourself as a "Kallit"?

We all need serious education about race.
- Did you know that scientists can not group the human race into various races? Race does not exist.
- Did you know the founder of the Afrikaner and the greatest Afrikaner who ever lived, Andries Pretorius was also a "Kallit" - just like you?
(He had "black" ancestors in both his fathers'and mothers' lineage.)
- Did you know that all modern day Afrikaners have +-7% "black blood" running through their veins?
- Did you know that once, we all were black and that the first Europeans were "black" people?
- Did you know the word "African" describes a continent and not a skin colour?
- Did you know that the San and isiXhosa has so much interbred that even Madiba can be seen as a "Kallit"?
- How many people understand the fundemental imorality of racism?
- How sure are you that you are not a racist?
- How do you know if you are a racist or not?

Racism is pure evil and it must be stamped out and it can only be eliminated through education.

So Peter Tracey, stop seeing yourself as a "Kallit" and start seeing yourself only as a South African.

Strategic Disruption

There is, for some reason, an attraction to falling in line, following the rules, and playing this business game by the books. If you want to be an agent for change within the company, and let them know that you are not just a minion, be disruptive. Read more...
