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
