Eliminating racism

01 February 2013, 09:13
@PeterTracey

"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.

With reference to Sean Davison's article "Assisted dying will save lives" (7/12/2016): How long before people are offered assisted-suicides to free up beds or because of some administrative mix-up? The poor and vulnerable in our society bear the most exposure. Read more...
