The Way I see it....

27 December 2012, 13:23

Nothing gets South Africans jumping around more than the race issue – point out the previous governments/DA’s faults, you’re a racist, point out the ANC’s faults, you’re a racist etc First they said I’m too soft on the ANC, now they say I’m too harsh on them, that I can’t stand to see a rich Black brother living in the laps of luxury (this despite the fact that I constantly cry out long and loud against the vast apartheid-created inequalities that sees a minority own and enjoy more than 80% of the country’s wealth & land by themselves).

 Assume I had 10 cars in the garage, 7 of them get stolen, then I send You to get them back from the thieves but instead you steal two of them yourself, when I complain, you feel offended because 7 of my cars had already been stolen by someone else and you were merely following suite. The people who stole the 7 cars also start complaining, asking why I can’t buy other cars, they ask why I look at the past when I should be focusing on the future and appreciating the 1 car they did not steal, they tell me it’s best that They kept the cars as I would not be able to look after them properly anyway - that’s the ANC & the rich minority/DA/NP in a nutshell.

Now they ask why a White woman is Miss South Africa – I say to hell with beauty contests, with so many beautiful women of all race groups in South Africa, you’re always bound to offend one group or the other - Beauty Contests are extremely outdated, and so are most peoples’ attitudes.

Abandon Atheism

Once upon a time I described myself as, among other things, an atheist. The certainty of that stance was one that age and observation have gradually taught me I cannot associate myself with.  Read more...
