Rupert has no white guilt and that's what bothers everyone

07 December 2018, 08:45

I am not surprised that Ferial Haffajee says Johann Rupert has outmoded business and political views. Rupert said at more than one instance that he is not a politician. But he is entitled to an opinion. 

As far as business is concerned, I think she is not qualified to judge his obvious business success (given her own track record in particular), although she is entitled to an opinion, however misguided she may be. 

Having read many of the Twitter comments of the Power FM interview, mostly from black persons, it became clear to me that they were hoping for white guilt from Rupert. They are used to white persons grovelling and making politically correct statements to appease black sentiments of entitlement and racial hatred.

Well, Rupert is not politically correct and he endured a lot of racial hate speech and fake rumours, of which these same indignant commentators kept quiet. I guess it must hurt to hear the political truth instead of letting black people wallow in self pity whilst the country falls apart.

It is high time that an influential person speak out honestly and openly. If we get more of that, maybe it will help to limit the spirit of looting and corruption which got the likes of Eskom where it is, with its power outages, bloated debt and payroll.
