Dear Dr Verwoerd

30 Apr

Hey doc I hope you can find a moment to stop turning in your grave and read this, my letter. I am well aware that us kaf…rs look exactly the same but you can be assured I’m not that pesky nuisance of a native Nelson whats-his-face.
I think sir, that Nina Simone(some American negro you might never have heard of) had you in mind when she sang about good intentions and being misunderstood.
I refuse to believe that a handsome and charming man such as yourself could be the spawn of Lucifer as most would have us believe.
Yes sir I complimented you on your dapper looks and incredibly sexy hairstyle. Please find it in your heart to forgive the queer overtures but I can assure you it’s pure observation. Pure and not Queer….another reason why I wish Tsafendas had not done a job on you. Far too many queers prancing about the vaderland like they owned the place. I have often prayed to Onse Here(you know the guy that invented the NG Kerk) to be quick with them lightning bolts but the toy-toying of them kaf…drowns out my prayers. I do however believe that if you were still around my prayers would have been heard much quicker, what with you being siblings with the messiah and all.
Sir the vaderland has gone to the dogs with the rabid lot in parliament.
The demise of that wonderful system(perfection itself) of apartheid has seen an unprecedented rise in the coloured population with races mating with gay abandon. This cross pollination is an abomination. Your white daughters are no longer safe from the insatiable lust of them natives.
Let’s not even mention places of worship. Your skin would crawl sir had you to witness scores of worshipers of different races under the same roof! Even heaven must be confused, I mean we all know God only speaks Afrikaans and Dutch and on a good day a smattering of English.
The land which your ancestors built and cultivated from nothing is now ruled by the very people you’ve worked so tirelessly to silence.
There’s absolutely no notion for order and lawlessness thrives. The sanctity of white suburbs and schools and other white institutions has been desecrated by the advent of bus loads of natives who have forgotten that their place is in the kitchen preparing a meal your children and mixing your g&t for you kind sir.
I am on your side sir. I cannot think of a more original and logical arrangement like Separate Development. Die Here knows you had your heart in the right place.
You were simply introducing order in what your honourable ancestors(bless them) had begun. I mean really now, take over the land and cage them, what was so hard to understand? There is absolutely nothing wrong with preventing the purity of the arian race in their abducted…ag I mean adoptive land.
Bantu Education I must say,was a stroke of genius. Much credit to you sir. Had the British, the French and Portuguese followed your example they would have enjoyed a longer stay in Africa, but noooo they had to educate these natives. See where that got them? They practically had to paddle to the shore.
Not you sir. Your system was such a well oiled machine that it’s only been eighteen years into the new system that has you doing somersaults in your grave.
And then there’s the liberal whites. What on earth does that mean I’m sure you’re wondering sir? Let us wonder along together.
The liberal white is that thorn on your milky white backside pioneered by among others that annoying Suzman woman. These are the people who never appreciated the sacrifice you and others before you and many other after you made for the volk.
To add insult to injury they are changing street names and yes your name is the first to go. Pretoria, that bastille of Afrikanerdom now sounds could be Soshanguve or Kwamashu for all the obscure black names that litter the streets.
I’m well aware meneer that this is too much grief and sadness to bear in our sitting(well in your case lying) so I will leave you now to your somersaults. Please pass my kind regards to ET and high five the Groot Krokodil for me.
South Africa is just not the same without you.

Yours sincerely

Ps please note I’m neither related nor friends with any of these people in power today so if you would like to organize a visitation of god upon them, please knock yourself out, if you will pardon the tacky pun.

Black Man Read Or Shut The Fuck Up

29 Apr

Tragic realization: many of my black friends really do loathe reading.(No not you Lusu*wink*). Comments such as “awema inteningi kanje ngizoyiqalangaphi” are common place. This is probably how the country and it’s wealth was unceremoniously yanked from under our feet like a dusty rug. We owe it to our ancestors to read…and read like mad. “Iqra” the angel Jabriel is recorded to have ordered Muhammad in the 96th chapter of the Quran. Read…Recite. There are also a number of hadiths that encourage the seeking of knowledge. Today muslims mostly of arab and indian extraction know have internalized the command to “seek knowledge from the cradle to the grave.” Knowledge acquisition is not limited to the classroom behind a graffiti defaced desk. Today your top neuro surgeons and other scientists are muslim. Your captains of industry are and top corporate management is Indian. They read. They study.
It is a well known fact that relations between Indians and Black people in South Africa, particularly in KZN and even more so in Durban are strained. Darkies bitch of Indians “taking over”. That’s the reward of education ladies and gentlemen, you take over and the minions stare in surprised horror and grumble in Envious, our fourteenth official language.
Yes we have been disadvantaged by apartheid but for how long are we going to hold on to that particular lament for even the smallest things we can control?
The burden does not only lie with the already overworked and demotivated teacher. Children pick up the attitude towards the written word from home.
When parents simply put things aside because they find reading label instructions too cumbersome there is no way children can be expected to investigate and interpret the written word with any amount of enthusiasm.
Some literate parents are only too happy to listen to an oral commentary from the child on the contents of a letter from school because it’s just too much to read.
I got thinking about this because I always send links to peeps and without fail the reaction from my black peeps is “wtf is this?”. Chris Rock once said to hide money from a darkie you should just hide it in the book. Guaranteed safety.

NOTHING CIVILIZED ABOUT THE FUNDAMENTALS OF CIVIL SOCIETY

29 Apr

The realization that the fundamental role of civil society is the black agenda pisses me off no end. From aiding poor black people to educating the dark continent and feeding the poor little natives and advocacy. There’s something amiss with a situation that is conducive for mostly white led and administered advocacy groups on behalf of the black majority where intellectuals and pseudo-intellectuals wax lyrical about a life they are far removed from. The repercussions of this is a combination of patronizing and condescending bordering on subtle to outright in-your-face racism by the very people who purport to be champions of human rights. The pity for the previously disadvantaged(I have said before there’s nothing “previous” about a continuum of odds)is often palpable and feels like one is listening to nails scratched across a chalkboard.
I have also mentioned before that if white peeps honestly feel theirs are ill gotten gains then they should do right thing and redistribute the wealth as much as they can. To gain millions of dollars in funds, bask in the international media spotlight and run expensive NGO operations in rectifying damage caused by one’s very own ancestors just sounds wrong to me. It’s just not enough.
NGO’s would do well to educate the “advantaged” and strive for a complete change of mind, attitude and perception than spending millions of donar dollars on projects that are just a drop in the ocean and do little to alleviate the lot of the majority.
The burden of white guilt should translate to more than intellectual rhetoric and be more hands-on. It’s not blanket handouts, food parcels or meals-on-wheals that the black peeps of this country and continent for that matter need, but access to opportunities.
A potential employer who is cognizant of the scourge of apartheid would be less anal about experience and dare I say education, banks would have found a way to be more accessible even to the poor of the poorest and YES tertiary education would be scott free FOR ALL!
It these players that civil society should focus on than hurtling down a dirt road in a posh 4X4 to some obscure village with kilograms upon kilograms of unbranded mielie-meal of questionable standards and origin.
