Taking It Global

04 September 2012, 08:28

Over the past few months and years, I've got a lot of flak for my comments and posts on News24. Even more so now that I am no longer in South Africa.

The outright racist, sexist remarks are easy to ignore - they're really your problem - not mine.

The ones that have really niggled though are the ones that told me that posting here, on MyNews24, would never make a difference.

So I have started working towards making a difference.

It starts with this: http://www.digitaljournal.com/blog/18239

I've started a political blog on an international news website, and there's a good chance I will start a couple more. It may not be standing in the rain toyi toying, but then, I am white, so my rhythm is questionable at best.

Someone, somewhere, has to start making the darker truths about South Africa known. Someone has to get the message about what's going on in SA today out, and since I don't particularly care if people hate me, it might as well be me.

So there you have it news24ers, I probably won't be posting all that much here in future. On to bigger things - with better moderators. But I'll drop by from time to time anyway. Wouldn't want y'all to feel neglected.

Do not play with God

I am ashamed and stunned that you could dismiss the existence of god. Our loving father is the one who made you, you lets you breathe every single day, and yet you say there is no God. Read more...

Ayanda Mabulu and his 'painbrush'

It was only a matter of time before Mabulu got ahold of a paintbrush and turned it into a “painbrush” by lampooning the first citizen once again. Read more...

You don't pour new wine into old ...

If we South Africans still don't understand what we need to do for God to hear our prayers, and forgive our sins, and heal our land, then we will keep on praying until Jesus comes. Read more...
