Do we really want to go back to a time where South Africans were living their lives just being a colour?

Shame on you Julius Malema for making me feel scared in my own home.

Shame on you for using your social platform to create division and fueling racial tension.

How dare you hold onto the past with your racial remarks? Everytime you address my kind as "amaBhunu" you exclude us from South African citizenship as if we have no part in present day South Africa.

This forces me to take special steps in protecting my 4-year-old "amaBhunu" daughter. I was born in 1974.

I lived in a time when we knew that our school could be bombed at anytime. I remember a time of burning tyres, "flaming necklaces" and burnt-out buildings.

You are six years younger than me, do you remember the fear we had as children? If you were old enough, why do you want to subject our children to that racial hatred of the past?

I am the ninth generation "amaBhunu" living in South Africa. I have nowhere else to go even if I wanted to, which I don't. This "white settler" earns a salary as a high school educator, paid by the ANC government.

I teach 180 black learners daily. I am teaching them my "white ways" because these are the only ways I know. Malema, please teach me the "black way" of doing things.

Does that include being a rude racist, who only feels powerful after belittling others?

Sir, I regret to inform you that I prefer my learners listening to Eminen instead of Malema. He also sings and swears but at least he does not pretend he wants to save a country.
