WHY?! Malema!!!

18 July 2014, 20:00
When Julius came out and started asking questions. I was really intrigued. I asked myself, "Why didn't I get into politics and ask questions on behalf of South Africans?"

He asks the right questions, yet why is it when he has the stand to speak. He brings up "WHITE" and "BLACK?" I am a white South african, born and raised in this beautiful country. I am a proud South African and no-one can take that away from me. 

Most of my fellow white people will agree to this. That is why we get upset and raise the roof, when someone like Julius goes on about taking it away. Whether White or Black, we all have the same emotions and feelings when it comes to this country of ours. Julius Malema, you would have so many white followers if you stuck to OUR land and how everyone should be equals.Yet, you don't wish to have us as your followers as you want to take what we have payed in tears and hard work. 

Many Rich white men aren't rich because of the land stories, they rich because they filled their minds with knowledge and understanding. Majority of South Africans are Christians, haven't you read that scripture, "My people perish for lack of knowledge?." This is something I use often to guide someone who is working for me. 

I was running a Restaurant and I had a black lady working for me as an assistant manager.  I saw so much potential in her that it made me ask myself. " what can I do to help these people working for me.?"I started speaking to my staff and passing on the God given Knowledge to them. I wanted better things for them than just work as a waiter the rest of their lives.

I never spoke to them and told them to take their lands back. That is pointless, because there is always an ending to every story, Julius Malema, please tell us. Should you take back the land, what will happen then.

Are you teaching your followers what they must do to get to your position and how they must study and apply themselves to become rich? You took back the land and what about the maintenance?Who is going to pay tax? You aren't a good role model for that. People don't pay tax and the police become more corrupt due to low wages. 

You speak of the beginning but what of the end results? 

Well, that is what I see and believe.
