The ANC has rendered blacks a pathetic, powerless majority

By Andile Mngxitama | May 15, 2012 | COMMENTS [ 86 ]

ANY self-respecting black with a little bit of capacity to think should feel humiliated, not so much by white kids mouthing commonplace racist statements, but how the ANC has managed an anti-black racist reality for the past 18 years.

As the Sudan's National Congress Party of Omar al-Bashir was bombing blacks of South Sudan, the ANC entered a memorandum of agreement with the bombers in Johannesburg.

I wondered if this was the fruition of Thabo Mbeki's mediation and that finally the oil fields of South Sudan would be surrendered to Khartoum.

The lives of the South Sudanese are cheap; after all, they are blacks. Judging by their 18-year track record in power, the ANC knows how to treat blacks.

So, unlike most people, I was not moved at all by the likes of Ken Sinclair and Jessica Leandra dos Santos calling blacks despicable names. To tell the truth, these white children are merely stating a fact of life for most black South Africans. Frantz Fanon long ago said: "A racist in a racist society is normal."

Let's think about it for a moment. White children are confronted with a difficult situation: on the one hand, they hear we are all equal, and on the other hand, reality tells them that blacks are inferior.

Blacks are gardeners and maids. They live in squatter camps and townships; they beg for jobs and food. They go to the worst schools and hospitals. Their own government builds them houses fit for dogs. Poverty is essentially a black affair!

There is a major disjuncture between what is said and what is real. Reality tells whites there is no reason at all to respect blacks. Respect must be earned not demanded.

The ANC has been in power for 18 years. Has it changed black lives? Most blacks have horror stories to tell of how they are treated - from factory workers to professionals.

Whites constitute less than 10% of the population but they own more than 80% of the wealth and land. When they had political power they exercised it ruthlessly in their interest. What whites have is from colonialism and apartheid.

As former apartheid president FW de Klerk emerged to tell us that blacks were not oppressed under apartheid, the ANC was holding meetings with recalcitrant Afrikaner rightwing organisations.

The same ANC will never listen to any of the black people's organisations such as the Abahlali baseMjondolo, Backyarders Association or the September National Imbizo.

As a thank you to the ANC's service to whites, a white artist depicted President Zuma with his genitalia exposed. The painting was bought for R130000. Whites have a festival of insults, but I refuse to blame them. The ANC has rendered blacks a pathetic, powerless majority.

The DA's Mmusi Maimane wasted no time in making sure that Tshidi Thamane, a black woman, also admitted to her racism and thereby rendered the insult from Leandra dos Santos a mere misunderstanding between models. I need to find Thamane and give her a copy of my essay Blacks Can't be Racist.

The problem with Andile is that he poses as an intellectual, but in reality he is just an anti- white propagandist. A true intellectual sticks to the truth, in an objective manner. I have not read Andile's essay about Blac.ks not being capable of raci.sm, but I have read attempts by others to make that argument. You only have to look at some comments on this forum to see that it is a rubbish. Also, whenever affirmative action policies are over zealously and quite unreasonalby applied, for example the refusal to fill key positions for years just because there are no suitably qualified b.lack candidates, despite suitably qualified w,hite candidates queuing up, ican not be anbything other than racism and unfair discrimination , no matter how Andile would try to spin it.

So Andile will lay every problem ultimatel at the door of wh.ite people. Even if he says in this article that he blames the ANC, the underlying attack is again on the w.hites, and the tacit message is that the ANC should be harder on the wh.ites. He does not balance the advantages that wh.ites enjoyed in aparthei.d with the BEE policies that now discriminate against whit.es, the fact that the state is being carried financially by the wealthy whi.tes together with the new bl.ack moneyed elite, etc.

The main flaw is that he offers no concrete suggestions as to what the ANC should according to him be doing, probably because he know his suggestions will be open to attack. This is highly anti -intellectual.

That the ANC should be blamed for the present, continuing suffering of so many people is a view shared by most commentators. Their education policies have taken education backwards. Billions of rands that should have been used for upliftment have been lost to corruption. So yes, blame the ANC, but blame it on their poor governance, not their being soft on wh.ites.

RobniH, MommaC, Mbelewolwazi, The-Rothschild and all of you who are able to see thru the writer's absurd thinking, THANK YOU. Before I joined this forum, I wondered if there were any people who can take this man on. And in fact, there's nothing to debate on Andile's articles. Why? Because the man writes only about the ANC. Is he an intellectual, as many of his fans here would want us believe? Again, why is Sowetan giving him so much space and time; only to write about the ANC? It is boring. Come on man, let's move on to another topic. May I suggest: GIVE US A LECTURE CONTRASTING FRANTZ FANON'S VIEWS WITH THOSE OF, SAY, PATRICE LUMUMBA. But pleeeeeeeezzzzzz, in that article, leave out the ANC!
