Our biggest enemy is our minds

10 June 2014, 15:37

Our biggest enemy these days is our minds - Hundreds of years of indoctrination is taking its toll on South Africans – even Indians, Blacks and Coloureds will walk right past you (if you’re a person of colour at the workplace) and address your junior, inexperienced White colleague as if he were senior.

It is mostly because of Prejudice, the reason why we still have vast income inequality based on race.

It is mostly because of Prejudice, why you’ll Still find different rules applying to different race groups in the workplace.

…And then there’s the fear of, how does the ANC refer to them??…as  “clever” Blacks and Coloureds, these clever Blacks and Coloureds ask too many uncomfortable questions. ..like.. ‘what really happened during those secret talks between the ANC and NP government that made the ANC do a 360 degree turnaround on key issues?”

The DA and its supporters have a straightforward way of looking at things, if you do not support them then in their eyes you are stupid and most probably a criminal who wants everything for free, a thief most likely who should be behind bars – to them you are one who cannot think for himself, a troll with a fake profile being paid by a political party to expose their dirty secrets and hypocrisy.

They cannot understand why you do not know your place and remain a quiet, obedient servant forever, how dare you question Them!

Who the hell do you think you are demanding equality, what gives you the right to believe you’re on their level? A total blank is cast in their minds on their own sorry history of mindless violence and oppression. Only a hand-full of acres of fertile land are in the hands of indigenous people, the Cyrils’ were quick to emulate mini-Oppenheimers with money they did not earn or deserve, money that could have gone to uplifting the poor.

Where did the ANC get R200 000 000 for the elections? Where did the DA get R100 000 000 for the elections? Would there be a cold person this winter if these two parties had rather used the money for homeless shelters?

Politicians are funded by private individuals to fight private individuals’ wars, to fight for the rich man’s interests’ – miners are millionaires all over the world except here, in South Africa, one of the richest countries in the world, the most dangerous job is reserved for the poor whose lives are still as worthless to our current leaders (government and political) as they were under Botha himself.

Our politicians have failed us, we are failing ourselves.
