About Me:

Doesn't care what you think about her, has an opinion, and will share it. Whether you like it or not.

Likes intelligent people, logic and reason, debates.

Dislikes idiots, pubescent, fumbling excuses for comments, bad governance and self delusion.

Will push back exactly as hard as I am pushed on comments. Consider this a disclaimer.

I want to consider a different inequality: the difference between the salary earned by the average ANC supporter and the salary earned by Jacob Zuma.

If there is one thing that happens in SA, it MUST be that these strikers need to be brought under control.

The weird thing about being so far from home when the news of Madiba's passing broke is that I probably heard about it before many of my fellow South Africans.

While us whiteys must struggle eternally against the privilege that most of us are unaware we're actually burdened with, there is most certainly a flip side to this coin: black victimhood.

The last couple of posts I've made on here, about the book that I am writing have elicited the expected response from certain people.

As some of you may have seen on my previous post, I am writing a book about being white in South Africa, post apartheid.

Several times over the past few years, I've told people that I was going to write a book about the current South African situation, and several times, I haven't.
