Let's Look At What he actually said...and some responses

“Of all the white groups that are in South Africa, it is only the Afrikaners that are truly South Africans in the true sense of the word.” “Up to this day, they [the Afrikaners] don’t carry two passports, they carry one. They are here to stay.” “It is the only white tribe in a black continent or outside of Europe which is truly African, the Afrikaner.”Jacob Zuma

Responses:

Desiree van der Walt of the Democratic Alliance, the official opposition party, said, “In singling out white Afrikaners as the only true white South Africans, Jacob Zuma has revealed an ethnically and racially blinkered world view in conflict with our Constitution. The preamble to our Constitution says that South Africa belongs to all who live in it, united in our diversity. It does not say that some people have more of a right to call themselves South African than others.” The Centre for Constitutional Rights (CCR) laid a complaint with the Human Rights Commission against Zuma’s statement. CCR spokesman Dave Steward said that Zuma’s comments “constitute unfair discrimination against non-Afrikaans-speaking, white South Africans on the basis of their race, ethnic origin, colour, culture and language.” He said it was shocking that the leader of South Africa’s largest political formation should question the right of non-Afrikaans-speaking white South Africans to be regarded as equal in all respects to any other South Africans. Shocking, yes, but not surprising. The truth is that the ANC, a former terrorist organisation which waged a long terrorist campaign against white South Africans in general and the white National Party government in particular, despises whites and wishes they were all out of the way.

Even the Congress of the People (Cope), a new political party formed by breakaway ANC elements, lambasted Zuma for his comments, with its spokesman Sipho Ngwema saying, “In South Africa, we are all equal. Someone must give him [Zuma] a copy of the Constitution. Typical, the president of the ANC is a chameleon. His tune swings with his audience.” And he added: “The Afrikaner community can see through patronising attitude.”

In the past couple of years Zuma has reached out to the country's white-minority Afrikaners, calling them "the white tribe of Africa." One problem: many English-speaking South Africans now feel left out. Recently the president-to-be met for three hours with a delegation from the country's second-largest labor union, Solidarity, with 130,000 mostly Afrikaner members. (He speaks at least a little Afrikaans himself.) "He doesn't always take up your concerns and be a Mr. Fix-It, but he does listen," says Dirk Hermann, the union's head. "And that's hugely important for us. He's like a Zulu king, sitting under his tree, listening to his tribe." Zuma's challenge now is to make sure his tribe includes everyone in South Africa.

interesting information, I was not aware that whites have been in South Africa as long as they have been. Almost as long as they have been in the Americas

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_South_Africa

Which is why white folks, per se, will not be going anywhere else, anytime soon.

You know that video i posted in one of the threads "Kill The Boers"?

Check that video closely. The youth singing in on one of them refer to the Fathers of the movement, and one of the first men they refer to is Joe Slovo.

Who was Joe Slovo?

In 1961, Slovo and Abongz Mbede emerged as one of the leaders of Umkhonto we Sizwe - a military body formed in alliance between the ANC and the SACP. In 1963 he went into exile and lived in Britain, Angola, Mozambique and Zambia. Slovo was elected general secretary of the SACP in 1984.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joe_Slovo

South Africa now prides itself as being a "Rainbow Nation".

I doubt it even the most radical elements within the movement inside South Africa are going to be calling for all white to leave. But those who try to organize opposition to the rise of younger, militant cadre within the ANC and other organizations will be dealt with accordingly. The present struggle is more of a class struggle than a racial struggle. And i recognize that is a reality some folks here will have a difficult time overstanding.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl
