I just read the article about AMCU and their bleating about whites earning four times more than blacks on average.
I would go into the 4 million / 40 million, unemployable thanks to ANC education etc spiel, but we've all heard it many times over, and if you don't get it yet, there's really no point.
No, I want to consider a different inequality: the difference between the salary earned by the average ANC supporter and the salary earned by Jacob Zuma.
On the face of it, there's very little difference between JZ and the grassroots ANC supporter.
JZ has a grade four education, he spent time working as a goat herder, spent time in prison, and has more wives and kids than is strictly advisable.
However, JZ also earns millions every year, spent millions on Nkandla and billions on the road to it, and the public foots the bill for all his sprogs.
I would say that there's a greater difference between Joe Schmoe ANC supporter and JZ in earning terms than the same ANC supporter and a CEO of a company. Why?
JZ is no better than Joe Schmoe. In fact, with his 700 plus criminal charges, one could very easily say he's worse.
He doesn't do a stellar job, nor does he have any qualifications to speak of, let alone anything that warrants his earnings.
He's also not the only one.
There are countless ministers and deputy ministers sitting in Parliament right now that are exactly the same.
Where are the articles about that inequality? Why is that okay? Is it because in the tiny racist minds of organisations like AMCU, that's okay because they are black?
No wonder SA is in so much trouble.
