Mogale insults us by saying evil made us creative

Allow me to raise my anger and pain at people like Charles Mogale. My skin is being peeled off by people who do not value it. For Mogale to write that there was a positive side to apartheid because it taught us creativity, hurts badly. This kind of thinking should be treated with the contempt it deserves.

Apartheid tried to twist our brains, minds and thoughts to make us enjoy our suffering. The premise of the ideology was, Africans are an inferior race.

This is the premise of similar arguments by white supremacists to justify evil ideologies.

They say that Africans in South Africa must thank apartheid because they are better off than Africans on the continent.

African-Americans are told to thank slavery because it took them away from the "dark" continent where people perish in civil wars, from Aids, malaria and other diseases.

How can people like Mogale justify brutality and think that it is somehow positive and should be celebrated? As a race and God's creation, Africans have been and are still being reduced to less important beings.

What brought so-called creativity, brought shame, brutality, sufferings and pain to the black race, Mogale. The creators of these evil ideologies will celebrate your creativity for trying to twist our minds.
