Aren't you tired of hearing the same old excuse over-and-over again as to why a person feels others don't like them?
"I can't get a job in South Africa because I'm white"
"You suspect me because I'm black"
"People don't like me because I'm Muslim"
These are things we hear everyday and frankly, its getting old and annoying.
Have you considered that you didn't get the job because someone was more qualified than you? I know BEE exists and its an unfair system, but be honest with yourself, all the jobs out there didn't reject you because of this. And maybe, just maybe the employer felt you weren't the right person for the job.
If I cling a little tighter to my purse whilst walking in the center of town and roll up my windows while driving through a township, its not because there are black people around me, its because I cherish my valuables and have been scorned one to many times to be careless. And its not that I dislike domestic workers, I just can't stand the person that stole from me. I don't hate black men, just the bastards that has murdered my loved ones.
I don't have anything against your sex, dear male, I just can't stand the guy that tries to take advantage of girls, without planning on having relationship with them.
And to the fairer sex, I have nothing against you, just the one that bullies others or acts like a tramp.
Now, to a subject that has been seen way too often here, religion. Those who keep attacking others beliefs, do you despise those groups as a whole? Or it there another reason you are reacting in such manner? Personally, its not that I disrespect your religion, I just find it rather insulting, dear person, if you come knocking on my door trying to convince me of why your God is a better one. I have nothing against your practices, I just find it sickening to think you are maiming young people and call it "tradition". Finally, your religion punishes prostitution, but excepts you killing innocent people. How is the latter okay but other things are frowned upon?
To summon it up, I have nothing against any group of people as a whole, I don't reject your beliefs, I'm not sexist, I'm not racist, I just don't like you!
