Minority Urged to Apologise

This post will no doubt offend a lof of people, that is not my intention.  My intention for posting this which is – and I state this BOLDLY – a QUOTATION from a Leading South African Newspaper, is to really to illustrate the disenchantment, discontent and general mayhem that is being experienced by so many people in Africa in general, not just the Minority Groups but by South Africans as a whole.

I DID NOT WRITE this article, I merely identified with a lot of what is contained in it, I hasten to add that it may offend some people and if you think you may be offended please DO NOT read the article… Quoting this article does not necessarily mean that I endorse everything stated within.

This was a reply to an article published in the Natal Mercury (Durban) where it was requested and urged by the “previously disadvantaged” majority of South Africa that the “previously advantaged” minority apologise for apartheid ~ “it’s not too late for the previously advantaged (including  Caucasians, Indians and Coloureds) to apologize for apartheid.

The main headline stated the following:

It’s not too late to say sorry for Apartheid.………… (Click link to read article)

This is an email that was sent responding tothe headline and has been published within various forums and websites.


‘To the Previously Disadvantaged’

We are sorry that our ancestors were intelligent, advanced anddaring enough to explore the wild oceans to discover new countriesand develop them.

We are sorry that those who came before us took you out of thebush and taught you that there was more to life than beating drums,killing each other and chasing animals with sticks and stones.

We are sorry that they planned, funded and developed roads,towns, mines, factories, airports and harbours, all of which you nowclaim to be your long deprived inheritance giving you every right tochange and rename these at your discretion.

We are sorry that our parents taught us the value of small butstrong families, to not breed like rabbits and end up as underfed,diseased, illiterate shack dwellers living in poverty.

We are sorry that when the evil apartheid government providedyou with schools, you decided they’d look better without windowsor in piles of ashes.

We happily gave up those bad days of getting spanked in our allwhite Schools for doing something wrong, and much prefer thesedays of freedom where problems can be resolved with knives and guns.

We are sorry that it is hard to shake off the bitterness of thepast when you keep on raping, torturing and killing our friends andfamily members, and then hide behind the fence of ‘human rights’with smiles on your faces.

We are sorry that we do not trust the government… We have noreason to be so suspicious because none of these poor “hard workingintellectuals” have ever been involved in any form of “corruption or irregularities”.

We are sorry that we do not trust the police force and, eventhough they have openly admitted that they have lost the war against crimeand criminals, we should not be negative and just ignore theircorruption and carry on hoping for the best.

We are sorry that it is more important to you to have players ofcolour in our national teams than winning games and promoting patriotism.

We know that sponsorship doesn’t depend on a team’s success.

We are sorry that our border posts have been flung open and nowleft you competing for jobs against illegal immigrants from our beautiful neighbouring countries.

All of them countries that have grown into economic powerhouses after kicking out the ‘settlers’.

We are sorry that we don’t believe in witchcraft, beetroot (cure for Aids ~>Dr Beetroot Minister of Health)  and garlic cures (President JZ) , urinating on street corners, virginity testing, slaughtering of bulls in our back yards, trading women for cattle and other barbaric practices.

Maybe we just grew up differently.

We are sorry that your medical care, water supplies, roads,railways and electricity supplies are going down the toilet because skilled people who could have planned for and resolved these issueshad to be thrown away because they were of the wrong ethnic background and now have to work in foreign countries where their skills are highly appreciated.

We are so sorry that we’d like this country to fulfill its potential so we can once again be proud South Africans.

The ‘Previously Advantaged’

PS In the old regime… we had lights and water
