No reseach predicted what is happening in SA today

16 November 2012, 15:08
Understand us before you can Judge us and stereotype us with your baseless theories, I can talk about a lot of issues Education, religion, politics etc, I can go on and on but we are all aware what our challenges are as A nation but many choose to turn a blind eye, the so-called scholars with big levels of education are often so blind to see the realities of our nation, for them the poor people of this country are a burden who just swallow their taxes, the famous theory they use is that poor people possess a victim mentality, why don't they go to school and obtain an education?

After all education will free them from poverty, how many graduates sit at home with big degrees?..well if only it was all that simple like the way you press your remote at home to change channels or as simple as flashing your Toilet after you have done your business and than just get rid of the smell with aroma freshener, I often really fail to comprehend their utter ignorance of understanding our challenges, the poor receive sub-standard Education and the rich continue to enjoy the best levels of Education, how than can you talk about transformation or even talk about Affirmative action if your education is still full of inequalities?

Maybe that policy of transformation and affirmative action only apply to the children of politicians for only their children have access to Model C schools while poor people children have to make the best crowded classes and education under trees, with many teachers absent because Cosatu will protect them, another burning Issue comes to mind the Justice system of this Country is not for poor people, If you are rich you can only go to jail for 3 Months if you were convicted for 15years but when you are poor you will serve that entire sentence, I must agree with the politicians when they say''this democracy did not come cheap'' we are paying alot of it still today, one thing I can tell you all is that poor people of this Country dont want wealth: all they want is Equal chance and level of education, equal Health care. Equality in term of the laws of the Country{equal access to Justice} equality with regards to housing, all that we have but we are tired for it on paper we want it in practise.
