Racism a common trend in SA

18 May 2012, 09:07

How many people from our “white” communities or should I say better privileged today and in the last few decades preceding our “democratic South Africa” had the opportunity to have a nanny or should I say a “domestic worker”? The Black domestic worker has been part of the elite society helping to raise children to adulthood. They, apparently become the shadows of the Biological parents and assume the role of administering to the needs and welfare of the child (psychologically; spiritually; and physically) such that there is integration of African moral values and culture, a task done with subtle humility and patience endurance to bring food for  the children back home in the village.

The Non-parental Adults are the cornerstones of many families in the affluent suburbs; they provide impartial guidance that is lacking with young teenagers who grow-up with less attention from their parents. The majority of our leaders in the opposition parties, have been raised and moulded by hands of the oppressed masses, it is skeptical when you find so much racial tension in this democratic society, that we have to circumvent to racial issues on a daily basis

It is such an irony that the same people, who have received such profound mentorship, should subsequently have deep hatred of other races, where we experience crimes perpetrated by racial prejudice and self-righteousness in our society. The civil society especially of South Africa should acknowledge the fact that we are all inter-related irrespective of colour of race; language; and religion, since we are all brought up and washed by the same hands that helped shape our “Ideals and Aspirations”.

This country should be leading in Developing Innovative Strategic Concepts in the field of Science; Information and Communication Technology, hence we all have to embark on creating platforms that are conducive to plant seeds for the eradication of illiteracy and poverty; improve the quality of education and curb the inefficiency of Skills; decrease the level of high unemployment especially among the Youth.

We are a country with diverse cultures, but a unique heritage it is therefore imperative that we put our differences and embrace this diversity instead of continuing planting seeds of strife and discontent in governance of our politics; labour relationships and social environments.

The country is in state of anarchy, Political parties and Labour Unions are constantly depriving our nation of productive use of valuable time and resources. It is time that we put our ego’s aside and concentrate on building this country that we all fought for under the past regime. The country belongs to ALL who are intent on “regenerating” this land of ours in aid to bring Capacity to the previously disadvantaged groups for the purposes of Uplifting and Developing our destitute communities, for the Betterment of  the Nation bringing forth equal opportunities and sharing of “All the Resources” coming from the land of our forefathers. One ‘Idealism’ our land, a United Democratic South Africa (UDSA), a government for all and everyone, (Our Nation Our Land).
