Race card a bit too old for the President

28 December 2012, 12:07
After the speech made by President Jacob Zuma in KZN has made people irate all over the country especially black dog lovers. It is just a stunt by Zuma to get votes for the 2014 elections. As many are furious, many more black people in South Africa are ululating and applauding the 'boldness' of Zuma to 'say it like it is'; call a spade a spade and not a big spoon right?

I was in a taxi with men who openly supported the words and how that has sealed their votes for 2014. 'The president did not mean that dogs should not be loved or cared for' said Maharaj but not by the black people right. The speech was aimed at 'decolonising the African mind post-liberation and to encourage the African majority to love and appreciate themselves' therefore by loving dogs you are still colonised. By beautifying you African self you are in essence colonised. Who is more colonised them, the person that just loves dogs and looking beautiful without any cognisance or the person that still thinks loving dogs is a 'white thing'.

There is more that needs the president?s attention than dog loving black people. There are people going hungry and other economic issues that are grave and more important that the President can focus on that black and white issue. Loving dogs, straightening your hair, living in huge luxurious houses and driving fancy cars doesn?t make anyone white (am sure people are not dumb).

This is just one of the many stunts and statements that will be very popular as we get closer to the elections and believe me, there is a majority of black people that will vote for him because of that. 'He is fighting the white man and his tyranny? said one gentleman in the taxi earlier today. I so wish some people could see what's at play here. Discredit the white person as much as possible and you get as many votes from the black majority as possible. That definitely guarantees black votes and his stay as president for another term.
