Why is it that only white’s can be racist…???

16 January 2014, 09:19

I often read News24 comments and have to give my 10 cents when I have the time or feel the need to do so.

It amazes me how when a white person would comment with intellect and insight, on a subject that requires that they are often shot down as being racist, by black persons.

Now don’t get me wrong, there are lots of shady comments on this site and there definitely are racist motivated comments. And these white person I could not feel a flying FU@# for.

But…I can for the life of me not understand why almost every single black person have to play the race card when common sense is being used. I feel they are under the impression that they can use the Apartheid excuse for an unlimited time and that by making their snotty comments they are free from being labelled exactly what they are…Racists!!!

We have Black Economic Empowerment, Black Managament Forum, Black Press Association…etc etc etc.

Imagine if a bunch of prominent white South-Africans had to do the same…White Economic Empowerment…there would an international outcry and every single politician would jump on the bandwagon.

Then if a white politician dared say anything, they would be labelled once again as Racists.

It’s actually laughable how stupid some of the citizens of this country are.
