Don't sing that racist song

By unknown | Mar 17, 2010 | COMMENTS [ 0 ]

I AM concerned by the lack of leadership among the present crop of ANC leaders - who use the credentials of the party's former leaders, like Nelson Mandela, when they want to gather support to be elected.

Now the youth also want to follow in the footsteps of Peter Mokaba by singing the "Boer" song.

These people have run out of ideas and are seeking attention with outdated things.

When Mokaba sang the Boer song he was called to order by the then leadership. He stopped because he respected them.

The present leadership won't do that because they are afraid of being called counter-revolutionaries - and of not not making the election list in 2012.

Here's a true story. A month or so ago I went to the river to get some water. Due to the heavy rains my vehicle got stuck.

I had no idea how I was going to get help. When I looked down the road I saw a person (black) walking towards me. I thought he would help me but then he decided to just avoid me.

Then along came a couple in a 4x4 vehicle. I signalled them to the side of the road where they could get past me.

To my surprise they stopped, greeted me and before I could explain my predicament the gentleman asked me if my car had a hook so that he could help me.

Before I could answer he knelt, found the hook and pulled me out. He told me that he would follow me to the river so that he could help me if I got stuck again.

They were white. Their car's registration: WFK 560 GP.

If you had a similar experience could you support someone singing "kill the Boere"?

No, unless you have no heart. Not all white people are racist.

The main responsibility of the ANC and present government is to extinguish fires (like the Boer song). And these fires are everywhere.
