Reading the latest articles on the EFF calling for a civil war against the white minority ...( how are they allowed to get away with this?) , I'm trying to stay sane and positive.
Currently I have very negative thoughts towards the black race in general, they seem to want to destroy my race, they seem to ignore the facts that most of their current woe's are being caused by their own people who are now in charge (sort of) of the country.
So my article is aimed at looking at the black people I am proud of and respect.
Mandela, despite his shortcomings, saved us from a potential bloodbath 20 years ago, with his conciliatory approach to things. A genuinely honest and good man.
Tutu - to this day still talks the same talk, and walks the same walk. A genuine freedom fighter, a fighter for right to win over wrong, regardless of the fact that he now criticizes those he used to support. Not many are as honest as this man.
My black sports heros, Makhaya Ntini, Beast, Siya, etc. Men who have excelled on the sports field for our country. (I'm sticking to black people, as they are the ones now threatening via the EFF to kill me or make war with me, I have many Indian and coloured South African sports heros as well.) I look up to and respect these black people.
The black politicians that have the courage to oppose the current corrupt regime, on honest grounds. (Agang, Cope, DA, come to mind) This respect does not extend to the EFF who play with populist ideologies and racial hatred as a style to gain power, I have no respect for those type of criminal black people. I may well soon be at war with those people. (Not out of choice)
The original ANC cadres, the older guys who had a genuine desire to free their people from white oppression. Biko, Slovo, etc, not the current mass theft and plunder brigade. (Mostly at the expense of their own voters!)
The people who work for me, without their labour I could never run my farm. I need them, they need me, and we have a mutual respect based on that. I like all labourers that don't feel sorry for themselves, but are rather thankful they have employment. People that don't have ridiculous demands.
I wish all black people strived for pride rather than acting like helpless victims of the past. The helpless victims think that by killing me they will enrich themselves ... I promise, its not going to happen. The culture of entitlement (taught by the current regime ... and EFF) is causing many to lose respect for the black race, people that once felt sorry for you now have the attitude that perhaps you never deserved freedom in the first place. Black people are associated with litter, with striking, with laziness, with violence, with destructiveness, etc. We hardly ever hear of any black achievement besides sport and arts. I think its time for the black people to start making positive contributions in life, that the "others" start respecting you. Demanding respect is what you are currently doing, its an impossible ask, respect can only be earned - it means nothing otherwise.
I'm very, very tired of the current situation. Now I prepare for war - and for what, because of what my race did in the past, or for what the black man did NOT do for himself in the present? Because of black tolerance of corruption, because of black idolisation of their leaders? Because of black people doing nothing with the thousands of hectares transferred to them in land reform? I'm now forced into a war due to the faults of those who want to kill me. Guess I'll just have to fight then ... thanks ANC and EFF.
