Sorry whites, I can’t help you

Kese Baepy North West I agree, they have no right (to feel marginalised). They al­ready have the up­per hand in life. Why should they get any­thing? Bonolo Lim­popo Stop it al­ready! What feel­ings of marginal­i­sa­tion? Where are they be­ing marginalised? How? By whom? Now they are vic­tims? Please, give me a break. Stephen Bray Gaut­eng Yes, we do have a right to feel marginalised. It seems to be open sea­son to in­sult whites. I find phrases like “white monopoly cap­i­tal” of­fen­sive. Also, peo­ple can say any­thing they like about whites and get away with it. Julius Malema, for ex­am­ple. But when an in­di­vid­ual like Penny Spar­row makes an ill-con­sid­ered re­mark on so­cial me­dia, there is an up­roar. It’s just dou­ble stan­dards. Kim Weir KwaZulu-Natal I am a white male and am 53 years old. I to­tally agree with Fred Khu­malo. We need to be hum­ble and stop moan­ing, and join in and build our beloved South Africa. Si­mon Mu­gridge Eastern Cape He sounds an­gry. Ev­ery na­tion has a past. Get over it. Ev­ery in­di­vid­ual has good and bad. Live with it. When all the whites (skills) leave, it’s Viva Zim­babwe time. Not right, but true. As the hen said about scram­bled eggs: “There are my crazy mixed-up kids.” Can’t undo the past. You have skills from white colo­nials you would not have had. C’est la vie. Jo­han Gaut­eng “Sorry whites, I can’t help you” is a provoca­tive ar­ti­cle which seems to be writ­ten for the sake of be­ing mis­chievous. Whites will ex­press their opin­ions and do ev­ery­thing to pro­tect what is theirs, as we now face a mostly hos­tile black press, more than 20 years af­ter we gave over the coun­try to our es­teemed com­pa­tri­ots to run it.

Read­ing ar­ti­cles like this makes me won­der what the writer does for a liv­ing. I have to plough on day af­ter day in a thank­less job in or­der to feed my fam­ily and to make sure Zuma, his fam­ily and fel­low state-cap­tured cronies have enough to eat, from the taxes I and oth­ers like me (black and white) are pay­ing. Writ­ers of ar­ti­cles like this, and the Male­mas of this world, must be care­ful that the whites in this coun­try do not wake up one morn­ing with the re­al­i­sa­tion that all they had is gone. They will have an un­man­age­able sit­u­a­tion on their hands. Leah North West
