Free-dom in the New South Africa

2016-04-30 10:00

We South Africans love to complain but need to put things into perspective. In just a little over 20 years, the ANC, through their dedication, in-group sacrifice and ingenuity, have implemented policies that have overturned White privilege and domination. Today, our society is egalitarian and democratic. We are a nation that is no longer racialised and gendered.

Unfortunately, this policy has caused too many White South Africans to suffer under ANC rule. I think it is unfair and a form of reverse discrimination.

In terms of the apartheid era racial groups (PS. using these racial terms make me uncomfortable because we are after all brothers and sisters), of a population of 55 million people, 80 percent of people are Africans, 9 percent Coloureds, 8 percent Whites, 3 percent Indians, and a total female population of only 51 percent (and to think one of our most prolific leaders, an offspring of the mighty ANC, Julius, a new graduate nog al, recently instructed African women to have more babies because of the growing white population. Smart man, Julius. What an intellectual...).

Apparently, Africans only make up 76 percent of the workforce. At 79 percent, men dominate the top management level, but White men now only dominate 70 percent of the workforce at the top management and a minuscule 59% at the senior management level. Of the 21 percent of women in top management, only a small minority of 63 percent are represented by White females. But these are mainly founders and self-made leaders, the so-called Entrepreneurs, with biologically predetermined and God-given super-IQs and EQs. In private sector firms, the greater number of promotions for White females suggest that they are preferred over every other race group after White males. And top White males also prefer promoting the sycophant Indian (Yes Sahib), not those too clever for their own good, rebellious ones. You see even the top white manager enjoys a good curry flavour, not just our beloved President.

Apparently, we live in an upper middle-income country with enormous wealth. We also have the highest income inequality – another great stride made by the ANC. A Gini index of 0.63 ranks Rainbow Land among the top five most unequal countries in the world. According to another propaganda survey, average African household consumption is massive at R55 920 (I suspect including the Ramophosa, Motsepe and the Nkandla households distorted these numbers), average Coloured consumption is R97 965 (thanks to Irene Charnley – self-made, hi-tech tycoon), average Indian/Asian consumption is R198 695 (this is probably distorted by including the Gupta household consumption), and average White household consumption is a tiny R314 523.99 (Sources say that the Oppenheimer and Rupert households did not participate in this survey or else this number would be lower). For a better analysis, I suggest you read Afriforum’s unbiased interpretation – I clearly don’t have their brilliant number sense.

We should celebrate another ANC achievement. In Rainbow Land, the unemployment rate is one of the highest in the world. Officially (whatever this means), 28 percent of Africans are unemployed in contrast to a massive 5 percent of Whites (unofficially, the overall unemployment number is closer to 40%).

And only 18000 people are murdered in Rainbow Land each year. This amounts to 37 people per 100 000 (a miniscule 50 per day). Thankfully, we do not live in war torn Iraq. One study reports they had 242,000 casualties in 13 years, a number similar to ours. So, what is the big fuss? In fact, Iraqi leaders could learn a lot from our leaders, you know, how to normalise the discourse of murder, from these exhibitionists who cannot perform with numbers beyond 2 digits in speech and policy implementation.

Anyway, Blacks should stop complaining. Serious crime is disproportionately being absorbed by White South Africans. For example, some research indicates that in terms of death by assault only 81% of male victims are Black, 14% are Coloured, 1% are Indian and a massive 4% are White men. 18 Coloured and 9 African women are murdered for every 100 000 while a massive 3 White women are murdered for every 100 000. And the murderer is probably a foreigner, not someone close to the victim, no not the boyfriend.

You see, Black South Africans are less likely to be victims of crime because they can now afford private security resources.White South Africans simply cannot afford security these days. And Whites are also innocent targets of rhetorical racial abuse (the worst kind) from the ANC’s elite intellectual class.

But it is the ANC’s elite intellectual class that suffer the most in Rainbow Land. It is those special breed of people, people who have the untainted blood of Black, Green and Gold running through their veins, that suffer the most. The character assassinations, those brutal character assassinations: Wrongfully accused for corruption, for being Arms Dealers, for selling off our roads to private companies, for bribing Officials to host mega sporting events, for using the state coffers to fund their personal projects, for bringing an end to anarchy by killing violent workers, for their comrades and children sitting in hard working advisory roles at our White Capitalistic corporations for penny stocks, for upholding the constitution even when it is too Western, for retiring from politics into low level positions in White corporations, for the state of the Rand, etc.

And worst of all, tortured victims speaking at Rent-a-crowd stadiums where people don’t give a damn about what our revered leaders say, as long as they are offered ‘bread and miracles’. How humiliating. The pain. The excruciating pain.

We Black groups have it far too easy. We are treating Whites unfairly. We complain too much. We could learn from their advanced Colonial and Apartheid merit based systems. Come on Black people. Treat Whites equally. Competition is good for you.

And respect your ANC leaders. Why? Because it is our Black Tradition to treat our elders with respect. Elders are always right. And Black Tradition is the way of the future. Ask your spiritual healer. Ask your Pastor. Black Tradition is not hegemonic. Black Tradition rewards talent, not heredity, skills not sacred tribal identities. Black Tradition has no delusions of grandeur. Black Tradition is humane and democratic. Black Tradition is progressive.

And all Western values are evil. Critical thinking, reason and logic, formal education, constitutional democracy, the law and radical individualism etc. are evils created by the White man. We need to go back to our enlightened communal Black roots - an African Renaissance - back to paradise.

Come on people. Don’t be apathetic spectators while the elite leaders of our beloved ANC suffer. Put things into perspective. Support our heroic leaders. Pray for them. Sing praises to them. Dance for them.

Viva! Free-Dom For All! Viva! Free-Dumb For All! Viva!
