Rub Some Apartheid on it - a Work In Progress

25 July 2012, 09:45

Now that I've left the shores of our tiny, insignificant country, and done some travelling in the first world, I've come to realise two things:

firstly, the rest of the world doesn't know much about South Africa at all, and secondly, what they do know is carefully controlled marketing speak (think Madiba and the 2010 World Cup, and you have an idea.)

I've also come to realise that if we ever want any international pressure on our leaders - a necessity in ending any racist regime (just ask the Nats) we need more exposure.

Being as patriotic and proudly South African (the country, not the idiots running it) I've decided to do my bit.

I'm working on a new book - called 'Rub Some Apartheid on It' which is probably going to be a cynical, satirical look at how, since 1994, the ANC have used apartheid as a sort of band aid to heal any wounds their idiocy causes.

Corrupt official? Rub some apartheid on it! Screw up education? Rub some apartheid on it!

You're intelligent folks - you get the picture.

It's time the world knew, and if no one is willing to set up the microscope, and rub the rainbow out of their collective eyes, that's never going to happen!
