Struggle songs part of our heritage - Malema

2011-01-24 08:28

Johannesburg - ANC Youth League president Julius Malema says he is willing to go to the Constitutional Court "to defend the revolutionary struggle songs which belong to the nation".

After the lekgotla of the youth league's national executive council (NEC) in Boksburg on Sunday, Malema said struggle songs will never be banned again.

He was responding to questions about civil rights initiative AfriForum's Stop Malema campaign and their looming court battle with him.

The organisation obtained a temporary interdict against Malema last year, which forbade him from singing a song with the words "Dubul’ ighunu" ("Shoot the Boer").

Culture and heritage

Malema explained heatedly on Sunday that the song doesn't belong to him, but to the ANC and that it's part of their culture and heritage.

He said he would fight AfriForum tooth and nail and that no court would forbid the song.

According to Malema, the song is not aimed at Afrikaners at all.

"There are Afrikaners in the ANC who sang it themselves. Why would they sing 'kill me'?

"The song is about destroying a system: Apartheid, a system which looks down upon others and where the minority owned everything."

According to Malema the song shouldn't be a legal matter, but should rather encourage national debate on the topic.

Successful year for ANCYL

As far as the lekgotla is concerned, he said the conclusion was that 2010 was an extremely successful year with the sharpening of political programmes to achieve economic freedom in the youth league's lifetime.

He said the nationalisation of mines is firmly on the ANC's agenda. Research is being done on the best way for South Africa to take ownership and control of mines and underground resources.

Malema also said the youth league has been inspired by the number of young people who responded to their call to "love education".

"The long queues at universities and universities of technology confirm that young people want to obtain skills and knowledge. We are calling on the government to make massive investments to expand universities and colleges to accommodate as many students as possible."

    Fatboy's culture and heritage are pretty thin and bankrupt if that is an example.

      drukkie - 2011-01-24 09:55

      Maybe in a few years whites will also have a struggle know the one where we fought against BEE...where the black elite minorites owned everything ;)

      Sipho, driving the latest BMW, was pulled over by a Gauteng policeman at a roadblock. 'Congratulations', said the cop... 'Because you are wearing your seat belt you have just won R5,000 in an Arrive Alive safety competition'. Sipho could hardly believe his luck. 'What are you going to do with your cash?' asked the traffic cop. 'Eish! I'm going to get a driver's license,' Sipho answered. AAUW!! Please sir, don't listen to him sir,' yelled Dipuo in the passenger seat. 'He always tries to be smart when he iss drunk.'!! With all this noise - Andiswe woke up in the back seat. He took one look at the cop and moaned, 'YOH! Guys - I TOLD you, stealing the BMW was a bad, bad idea. WE SHOULD HAVE TAKEN THE RED MAZDA! BUT YOU ARE ALWAYS CLEVA!! At that moment, there was a knock from the boot and Zakeles' voice said, 'Are we over the border yet?' AND The cop said .... 'Okay, my brothers. How are we sharing this R5000?!'

      what about apartheid criminal names on our towns and street names. does that not incite violence and hatred against freedom loving people

      Afriform can do more with their time than waste it on this idiot. By doing this as well as commenting on this forum, you are just making a stupid little fat boy important. Drop the case and give no more attention to ..... Focus on some real issues.

      That may be true Bill but it is the Malemas of this world that hold your future in his hands. Even if something were to happen to Malema there are thousands more just like him. You are not in Kansas anymore Bill.

      He didn't do matric

      Joe_Public - 2011-01-24 09:45

      Woodwork was his struggle

      Calmone - 2011-01-24 10:12

      Maybe he nailed his tooth to the woodwork?

      SomeLogic - 2011-01-25 10:27

      The man Malema was born even after the '76... He, like myself, can not talk about any notable struggle. With his comments and statements he ridicules the legacy of REAL struggle hero's such as Nelson Mandela, Oliver Thambo, Walter Sisulu, Govan Mbeki and the likes. After these guys have made major contributions and sacrifices toward the fall of Apartheid, the ANC seem to have lost honarable and moral purpose... like a dog who chased the bus, caught it and now its puppy's don't know what to do whith it. Shame on the Malema's within the ANC to destroy what others sacrifised so much for. How I wish I could find three wishes somewhere... 1) I wish that the people of this country will open their eyes and accept to the responsibility that comes with the right to vote... 2) I wish that all of us will accept that apartheid is something of the past, not keep looking back at it and build this country constructively...accept who we are and what ethnic origins we come from and live in harmony with such knowledge of ourselves and each other... 3) I wish that we can accept that not all systems from the "old regime" was bad for us... There is some logic.

      ....Fat Boy Julius malema is still struggling.. make sense...

  • Hackney - 2011-01-24 08:40

    If the song is about "destroying a system: Apartheid" then why the hell still sing it. Apartheid is long gone and over. Stop looking to past and start looking to the future. And stop stealing our money you fat, stupid, political clowns.

      cervezab - 2011-01-24 09:06

      @Hackney - agreed, singing a struggle song after the struggle is over is the best example for the phrase "it is like beating a dead horse" The people that struggled have moved on and now their naughty kids are feeling left out and sing out of date songs so that they can feel a sense of belonging

      cervezab - 2011-01-24 09:13

      @Kgopotso - The struggle is not over, but Apartheid is, the new enemy will only grow stronger if you keep trying to fight one that has been defeated. Write a song about the ANC failing to deliver on their promises. The new apartheid is between the Black Diamonds and the People

      watalife - 2011-01-24 09:13

      @Kgopotso yes apartheid is still verey alive from your side.You cant accept the fact that apartheid is over for the mere reason that you are running out of answers when something goes wrong. gets over it and take responsibilty for you actions its not rocket science. Malema can sing what the hell he wants it wont be long then he is a forgotten sole living in Sandton with millions in the bank while millions suffer from his actions.

      Hackney - 2011-01-24 09:14

      Uhm wake up Kgopotso ... BEE has driven educated and skilled workers from SA to other countries. Farm murders has driven Farmers from their land. Wake Up ... our precious Democracy has given human rights to criminals. Who are the lesser evil ... a Corrupt Democracy or a Cruel Apartheid? Think about it.

      Dewet - 2011-01-24 09:46

      @Kgopotso Is affirmative action legislation not enough for you? Are you so pathetic that you cannot make it even though you disadvantage the hard working so you can have a competitive chance. Grow up, stop blaming and actually take charge of your life and future you poor, poor little victim

      Desertrat - 2011-01-24 09:57

      @Kgopotso - And you reckon it would be wise just to hand over the Corporates and the farms to you lot! Another Bob's Zimbabwe, WITHOUT A DOUBT! Which planet are you from man? What a chop!

      Talk500 - 2011-01-24 10:08

      What about our monuments and street names? Part of our heritage!!!

      clint1980b - 2011-01-24 10:32

      @Kgopotso If Apartheid is still around, then Why do you have access to Internet? The fact that you do shows in some way you have benefitted and gained from the struggle and been given an equal chance with the rest of us. But now comes the realisation that the end of apartheid did not mean instant wealth as your leader will have you believe. the wealth is just shifting to a few individuals of a different colour. there will always be poor, real struggling people and if your name ain't Sexwale, Malema, Mandela, etc then accept the fact you and I are the same and dealing with a goverment that lacks much to what to "preaches".

      Dirk Kotze - 2011-01-24 10:40

      You are right Kgopotso, especially in corporations where Affirmative Action is being preached. It is apartheid against white people!

      Mgayi - 2011-01-24 10:49

      @Hackney ,after reading your first sentence some would have considered stopping the singing of the song(s) in question . . however your last sentence could be the start of yet another verse to the same song (lol)

      jv - 2011-01-24 11:08

      @Kgopotso, Aparteid is whites only, BEE is blacks only therfore BEE = Apartheid. You are right it is still alive but reversed

      Vedder - 2011-01-24 11:12

      @kgoptso..apartheid is still alive and kicking??If you dont be careful its going to come up behind you and kick you in the ass!

      SimonP - 2011-01-24 11:28

      Kgopotso, do you even know the definition of apartheid? It is the official government policy of racial segregation. How can it still be alive and kicking, I think, like many of your brothers, you are confusing it with racism.

      ocon777 - 2011-01-24 11:34

      Yup Kgopotso - and Elvis is still alive. Him & Hansie are drinking cane and Fanta on blouberg strand right now.

      PikeLee - 2011-01-24 13:04

      @Kgopotso, if you mean BEE, then you are correct.

      Hackney - 2011-01-24 15:56

      @Mgayi ... are you seriously denying that the current goverment is NOT stealing/wasting money. Like the All Out Communist Youth Festival that cost us R69mil which could have been used to help flood victims. They are all a bunch of greedy idiots. As long as they can drive their S-Class Mercedes they dont give a hell about the lesser people until they come begging for votes with empty promises.

      richard - 2011-01-24 16:57

      @Kgopotso. And you are still eating? Fuck be thankful you arse. Where do you think the food in your belly comes from. Some of you co citizens has been given a farm and what have they done with it. Sweet blue fuck all.

      richard - 2011-01-24 16:58

      @Hackney : There is no denying the wasteful and fruitless expenditure , no doubt about that . .. my comment however was meant to highlight that your last sentence when loosely translated to venecular could be the start of yet another verse of "a protest song" .Ofcourse I meant it as a joke

  • michaelp1 - 2011-01-24 08:41

    This Woodworker must realise that other people have heritages and cultures as well - some parts of which he may not like! So when other groups start saying and using words and phrases he doesn't approve he must remember his defence of the use of this devisive song. Come on all South Africans (of all races) who are looking for a non racial, peaceful, prosperous country - let's stand up against this devisive, violence fomenting, uneducated and (I'm afraid it's the only word I can think of to describe him) IDIOT!

      Part of the ANC Herritage? Is calling different Races, Creeds & Sexes vulgar names also part of the ANC Herritage? Idiots such as Malema is the highest grade of promoting racial hate. Apartheid is gone for ever. ANC!!! WHAT A SHAME FOR SUPPORTING THIS KIND OF MENTALITY. For crying out loud!! WAKE UP!!!

      Jonathan - 2011-01-24 09:51

      @ Tseleng You to undeducated to relaise that the minority always rules. ANC elite is the minority that is in control right now.

      lldoidge - 2011-01-24 09:56

      Kgopotso and tseleng, get over yourselves and stop trying to stir of these forums. Your hatred will be your downfall and not apaprtheid that is dead and buried. The fact that neither of you have suceeded is obvious for all but yourselves to see.

      rmarkram - 2011-01-24 10:04

      @ lldoidge - Wise words....

      Dirk Kotze - 2011-01-24 10:44

      Kgopotso, you again. Hmmk, let me explain this to you. What is done is done, and it is high time we deal with it. Yes, ALL of us. Now, in this country, there is a contingent of people trying to build a country where tolerance and equality reigns. Mr. Malema and his friends in the Youth League is doing this ideal plenty of damage and should cease and desist. Should this not happen, the lovely rainbow nation of ours will end up in civil war. In fact, if only Malema was the only factor steering us to civil war. Now, corruption, anyone?

      SaintBruce - 2011-01-24 10:57

      @ Kgopotso - do you actually understand the word " Kaffrarian" ? It is the Arabic word for a non-believer in Allah - the God of Islam. I don't follow Islam therefore I am a K----fir. If you don't follow Islam then you are a K---fir! The Arab slave traders plying their snatching down the east coast of Africa used this term since about 900 AD ( or earlier) and when other folks arrived here this was the generic term they found for the black peoples in Africa - who don't follow Islam. SIMPLE. Now as a slang word think about it - all Islam followers STILL use this word for anyone not following 'their' religion. The modern day translation is "Infidel". Go study history and language before spewing out stuff you don't know anything about! Seperate development was called "Apartheid" and based on the Caste System in India in the 1800's and today it is called AA , BBEE and any other form of racially aligned discrimination you can find. Don't forget - "Birds of a feather flock together" - so is Natural Selection racist?

      Granny - 2011-01-24 11:15

      @Tseleng - A select few ARE still deciding for the majority! The new "elite" are calling the shots my friend, and you are all falling for it hook, line and sinker! Wake up and smell the Johnny Walker..

      "A select few ARE still deciding for the majority" the majority put them in power hence they are deciding on their behalf duh

      michaelp1 - 2011-01-24 18:27

      @Michael - did you read my post carefully? Judging by your post I doubt it. Sorry I missed Kgopotso & Teseleng's comments. Judging by the replies before they were (I assume) removed they were pretty provocative. We should all be working towards a solution - not be being part of the problem - and that goes for all those people who are fomenting this hatred and devision with some pretty outrageous posts on this forum. @watalife - pretty big comment when you have no idea about me. Assume = ass out of you and me!!!

      Granny - 2011-01-25 11:22

      @themba1.dlamini - yes, the select few are still deciding for you, deciding to keep the majority impoverished and uneducated while enriching themselves at your expense. If that is what you are comfortable voting for then go for it. Like I said, falling for it hook, line and sinker... duh!!

  • Dougalan - 2011-01-24 08:41

    The long queues at universities have nothing whatsoever to do with the ANC Youth League. The queues are desperate attempts by people to try and improve their skills and get jobs, because the ANC's education and training systems have utterly failed them. And as for Malema, he is a real 'roll model' for the youth - judging by the rolls around his waist.

  • Sabsi - 2011-01-24 08:42

    Regarding how some people 'understand' this song, he shouldn't even think about not stopping to sing it! Ag this guy really upsets me. Why can't the media just stop giving him the opportunity to 'speak out' his sick thoughts?!

      richard - 2011-01-24 12:06

      I agree Sabsi this man makes one furious to say the least. Who does he think he is. He is an oppressor of willful thinking and a senseless sessionary, who is a joint author of the latest slogan of one-bullet-one-white-infant, with his belligerent song of 'Kill the boer'. He is a hunter of the impressionist mind of a race that was oppressed only to fuel the hate that he has in himself. You know someone that is that dark (evil) and filled with hatred is the master of his own destruction. He might feel like a king at the moment, but in order for a person to hate so much, he must hate himself imensely, THE QUESTION IS WHAT? you and I know, but he refuses to admit it to himself.

    Nelson Mandela 1994 - "Forgiveness liberates the souls" Julius Malema 2011 - " Kill the boer" Its seems the ANC have changed their value system for the betterment of themselves, Its satisfying knowing that Gauteng ain't behind him, now if only the rest of South Africa were as smart as us.

    I am an Afrikaner and I don't feel threatened by "kill the Boer" songs, but what if we start singing songs of us "Kill the Zulu". The Voortrekkers also enjoyed victory over the Zulus at Blood River. Let’s stop living in the past and Malema get something useful to do with your time.

      bosegoos - 2011-01-24 09:25

      I agree 100%, Bismark22. Malema drums up support with inflammatory statements aimed at dividing the racial groups.There are so many wrong things in this country which urgently requires attention. I am sure that the Big M aspires to become a great leader. Why doesn't he direct his energy and powers in addressing these problems. This will earn the respect of his fellow blacks as well as most of the whites. Give this a rethink, mr M. You might find that could enhance your image. - 2011-01-24 10:15

      The thing is Bismark that, unfortunately, the IGNORANT, blood thirsty criminal, who sees a complete buffoon/idiot like Malema as their hero or leader, takes those words literally and does exactly that. I cannot believe that Malema is one this country's 'leaders'!!!! He is SUCH an embarrassment to SA! Its his kind that are the downfall of what could have been a truelly wonderful country...

      @Mnumzane. "What u need to understand here this song was sung long time ago during the struggle days in RSA" - The struggle against apartheid is over my slow friend. "If u start ur Kill the Zulu song now, then u will see what Zulus will do u" - I can assure you, that the Afrikaners will not start such a song. We have much more important things to attend to. "Even Afrikaners when they are together they sing their songs that were sung during the great trek and nobody has sent them to court." - Now this is a gem. Oops sorry. Its only a polished turd. "Why Afrikaners want Black people to stop their songs. " Wrong again my slow friend. We just do not take threats of being killed all that lightly. You need to have yourself checked out at your nearest mental institution.

    C'mon now Julius!! Revolutionary songs belong to the nation! which nation?? its only U and ur handful of supporters who continue to sing the song. If "Dubul’ ighunu" ("Shoot the Boer")really belong to the nation then why theres so much controversy about the song?? If it belong to the nation then U should listen to what the nation wants. We all hate the song (both Black & white South africans),it doesnt contribute toward nation building.... Pls drop the song, is is as dead as the apartheind regime!!! rather focus your energy on writing new songs for the rainbow nation.

      Bismark22 - 2011-01-24 08:53

      I agree Zondo!

      rhemus - 2011-01-24 10:26

      Zondo I agree with you 100%. I never experirenced apartheid and I would thimk that most of my previously disadvateged south african brothers did not either. I am in full support of BBEEE and believe that we have alot to sort out in this country...only together can this country go from good to great and it has a huge oppertunity to be GREAT!!! All the black and white means nothing "WE THE PEOPLE" decide and that should be what is focused on. I am looking forward to building something great, I just hope people stuck in the past dont drag the youth back by handing over the baggage of previous years...... - 2011-01-24 11:58

      Zondo, why can't guys/girls like you start a political party? That is what we need in SA, no matter what color the leaders, but people that think logically and think of what is best for the country.

  • frikdt - 2011-01-24 08:52

    Attention Julius Malema: By your own reasoning - if I sang and shouted the words "Kill Julius Malema the leader of the ANCYL" I could then justify myself by stating that it wasn't aimed at you whatsoever, I was actually complaining about ESKOM's rolling blackouts??? Furthermore "Malema explained heatedly on Sunday that the song doesn't belong to him, but to the ANC and that it's part of their culture and heritage" - so you actually imply that this is the only culture and heritage you give a damn about - with no respect for other cultures - now that is nothing else but reversed racism.

  • Darwin - 2011-01-24 08:55

    "The song is about destroying a system: Apartheid, a system which looks down upon others and where the minority owned everything." I'm fairly certain the ANC government and their cronyist fat-cat politician friends are a minority amongst the people who own almost everything (tenderpreneurs!!!) and look down upon everyone else. Malema you doos, get off your soapbox and shut your mouth.

      jiamalunga - 2011-01-24 10:50

      the minority still own everything....Duh!

      Alfred - 2011-01-24 13:14

      @jimalunga Now I wonder when they're going to tell us who pays all those taxes...

      Alfred - 2011-01-24 13:28

      Lol Mnumzane! Try again...

      moiraine - 2011-01-24 22:15

      Thats right actually the minority do own everything. The minority of people who are MPs, civil servants or policeman. Before you jump down my throat about policeman there is a police constable who owns a R4million rand house.

      moiraine - 2011-01-24 22:17

      @mnumzane - so are you saying then that it was okay for all those apartheid leaders to own farms all over the country? Or to steal from the people who paid them? Two wrongs dont make a right, wasnt the struggle about overthrowing the old government and bringing out a better one?

  • richard - 2011-01-24 08:56

    Yes, he is right, it is part of their culture to be ignorant instigators of murder flying under the radar of heritage. This man has got a screw loose. You can delete this again and I will write it again and again and again and again and again and again.

      richard - 2011-01-24 09:04

      And yes I forgot to say. I am sure it is part of only a few's culture to murder, he does not represent everyone in his indistinct notion of their culture and heritage.

  • Circus watch - 2011-01-24 08:58

    I think Malema's struggle is going to be shortlived seeing as the ANC has invited the Chinese and Nigerians with open arms to take over the country. In about twenty years the battle for power or the new "struggle" will be between them. The South African black or ANC cadre will never be able to compete with these superior intellects. So dream on arsehole, "in our time" is shortlived.

      reptilian.humanoid - 2011-01-24 11:18

      Wait until the rest of Africa wants a piece of South Africa, for real......These guys from the other African countries speak of an Africa for Africans - United States of Africa as if there is some so called-brotherhood between Africans in Africa. We know thats all bullshit, otherwise these guys wouldn't be killing and exploiting their own people. Everybody wants a piece of South Africa, they dont really give a shit about what happens to the people. South Africa is being recolonised - and all Julius gives a shit about is the Boers LOL!!!!

      richard - 2011-01-24 18:22

      @reptilian humanoid. They are on the way, most probably here already. Go and check out this site of a former APLA leader and a 106 ghoons coming to SA to get rid of the 'setlers', just scroll down on this site you will get there:

    "Successful year for ANCYL" I supposed that he will next reveal that it was a successful year for South Africa with poverty levels decreasing & service delivery increasing. As part of heritage I would like to see more politician ordained in traditional bead work please, it will bring a sense of belonging to me ;) The song belonging in the dog box next to your "old racist prison names" stop singing racist songs & frikken fix something you empty tool bag...

    The Nazi's had all sorts of "National Morale Boosting" chants and songs, and although they form a part of a traumatic period in History, they are still banned in Germany. The songs of the struggle belong in the National Archive to be kept for historical value. It's time to let go of the past and look forward to a brighter future!

      birdman - 2011-01-24 09:12

      Absolutely right! Our fathers and grandfathers fought for the freedom of the world against the Nazis who wanted world domination. Could you imagine if the Germans had won the war? There would be no blacks in South Africa - they would have been exterminated, just like the genocide by the Germans of the Herrero people in Namibia!

      CharlSkeptic - 2011-01-24 10:59

      I agree, but you are assuming European values to be applied by Africans. Won't work...

  • slg - 2011-01-24 09:03

    Yes, Julius, but some things are best left in the past, like Apartheid and the violence that was part of overthrowing it. They have no place in South Africa toady, which is one of the most violent countries in the world.

  • videopixels - 2011-01-24 09:08

    If these songs have to be included as a critical part of our heritage then so should Jan van Riebeeck. Same coin, different sides.

  • Bosduif - 2011-01-24 09:09

    I've never heard Madiba sing this song in public (and he had reason, sort of). Now this idiot is singing it. What positive thing did Malema do for the youth so far except for instigating violence. Maybe he should focus on why the youth is not passing matric. Then again we all know he was such a "hard worker" at school. Quite an example for our youth this guy is, and that why it's going down the toilet.

      LGVS - 2011-01-24 19:07

      Does anybody have an idea what Malema’s academic qualification is? This is a serious question. I would like to know for interest sake.

  • Zion - 2011-01-24 09:10

    Culture is a two edged sword, cutting both ways. Many words in our vocabulary, English and Afrikaans arise out of our common history yet are found offensive by Black People, the result being that the words have been banned as hate speech. Ka**ir and Hotnot are typical examples of hate speech yet Kill the Boer issue is ok as far as the Black man is concerned. I purposely generalise because no black people have yet defended the white point of view on these fora as far as I know.

      Mizer - 2011-01-24 09:37

      Which white person has defended racism in the corportae world.By the way I'm black and dont see a point for that song.I'm not making you happy just stating an honest fact.So to generelise is your won problem.

      lldoidge - 2011-01-24 10:07

      Zion, how do you know that many of the posts aren't from black people? Don't generalise as you look really stupid and lose your argument! In fact you end up sounding just as racist as Malema!

      Zion - 2011-01-24 13:04

      Mizer+lldoidge. Generalizing is not my own problem it is yours. As for Mizer I do not extract happiness from a comment on a forum. IIdoidge after you have been reading these comments for about 2 years, as in my case, You become pretty certain who is who. Monikers are a dead givaway and when False monikers are used then it is even easier. Spelling and word order are indications too. context and peripherals are a dead giveaway. False monikers are, eg, whites who make out to be black and vice versa. Mizer, you were angry and typed the comment too fast. Look and see why.

  • LoveLife - 2011-01-24 09:10

I would like to know what struggle was Malema in? Was it the struggle with his woodwork in standard 2, or in general, just a struggle with the lack of intelligence?

    I am sorry, but why does it seem that it is mostly white people that want reconciliation and unity in this country? Didn't we become one united nation after 1994? Wasn't that why I voted "YES" in the very last reffurendum of the old SA? We have a horrible and devided past, that will never change. Why does the ANC and ANCYL insist on keeping that past alive? I am as much a "part of the nation" as Juju and his chronies, my ancesters were all from here as well, and this struggle song does NOT belong in a united nation. I remember a silly song that kids made up when I was little about the people that died at Boipatong all those years ago. Would it be okay if I went around and sang that? Because horrible as it is and was, it remains part of my "heritage". Or would it be okay if I own a holiday resort and make it "whites only"? Of course not! It is my property yes, but I want a united country so I want every single person to have the same rights. I need to let go of the past. Why can't the ANC do the same? Let's not forget the past, because the past shaped us. But lets not revisit the nasty things of the past.

      Zion - 2011-01-24 13:26

      MM, despite what the New History promotes the Dutch and English governments of yesteryear tried their level best to integrate the nations of South Africa. They were unable to do so due to the cultural orientated life the Black people wished to adhere to. If your cattle are stolen and your crops are burnt then you start to dislike your neighbor intensely.No matter what your attitude is to other members of the community and farmers, the food baskets of the nation, are murdered simply because these killers are practically allowed to do so. Then one again looks at the perpetrators with disgust and dislike. Do you want to share a few cold ones with that? For the info. of some of the commentators: This is not a generalization. MM, remember we are the consequences of history and that cannot be changed although that too has been done. - 2011-01-24 14:14

      You voted yes because you are stupid.

  • burtfred - 2011-01-24 09:19

    In Papua New-Guinea they have a culture of cannibalism. Julius - that means they eat each other. They no longer practice this as it is not acceptable in modern society. Your own tribe practised cannibalism under Chief Sekwati about 200 years ago. Is this also in your "culture"? For a decade, Germany had a culture of murdering Jews - they don't do this anymore. In South Africa we had a culture of persecuting non-whites - we don't do this anymore. "Culture" Julius, is no excuse for do something abhorrent, like threatening to kill people, which is what you seem quite keen to do.
