Why are whites against AA?

14 October 2012, 13:38
I am curious as to why whites are against AA. I don't mean all whites, just those whites who were in the working world prior to 1994. Yes, you might think you worked hard to get the position you did prior to 1994 but there was AA for you. Well qualified non-whites who had gotten their education overseas weren't allowed the same job as you. In fact, some times we weren't even allowed to be the Free State longer than 24 hours (lol). Sometimes we weren't allowed to go into cities to those fancy jobs without a passcard. Look at all the obstructions that the apartheid government put in front of our parents.

Anyway, I really would like to know from those whites who were in the working world prior to 1994, why you hate AA so much when you benefited from AA yourself.

It feels unfair those young ones (from the white population) must pay for the past because you had benefited from AA.
