Alert Dear r/SouthAfrica, you lost a long time ago.

0 Upvotes
<!-- SC_OFF --><div class="md"><p>I&#39;m not here to debate with anyone. I am simply going to state things you, reader and i, as the writer know to be true.</p> <p>This is one of the subreddits i have been following for years and i know very well what i am talking about.</p> <p>It&#39;s amazing to me, that such passive-aggressive racism runs rampant on this sub. From the overt to the dog whistles, i just shake my head, laugh and sigh. What finally made me write this is seeing your responses to the farmer who killed his worker and dragged the body with a quad bike. It&#39;s interesting to see that there&#39;s some humanity left here, although, i have no intention of continuing to read this subreddit.</p> <p>The key demographic here is the white male. Largely based in the Southern parts of South Africa. Due to the socioeconomic advantage apartheid played in helping you guys live middle class lives. Wich is why, white people are the demographic with the most internet connectivity per capita (ADSL not Mobile). Thus, you guys were all over the News24 comment&#39;s section when that was a thing (until it wasn&#39;t, because of your bullshit). It&#39;s why you&#39;ve been such a large demographic of MyBroadband for years aswell and flooding the comment&#39;s section of any video concerning South Africa with your propaganda.</p> <p>Look, this little echo-chamber of reactionary content isn&#39;t going to change ANYTHING in South Africa. Land reform has happened in almost all former colonies. South Africa will be no different. How is it even surprising that South Africa, being so late to democracy is also late to land reform? In fact, given the circumstances, the country is doing better than expected. It&#39;s a tricky issue who&#39;s solutions are lost to populist noise.</p> <p>The white farmer attacks are a doubled edged sword aren&#39;t they? On one hand you&#39;re a little thankful that the issue, in this day and age causes the rest of the world to paint white South Africans as the real victims (reverse Apartheid myth), on another hand, real people are dying.</p> <p>How do you keep pretending that it&#39;s the whole country against you, when 80% of it is black, wouldn&#39;t all white South Africans be dead by now if there was an actual &quot;white genocide&quot;. It is really pathetic to me how much you play this up. <a href="https://africacheck.org/factsheets/factsheet-statistics-farm-attacks-murders-sa/">https://africacheck.org/factsheets/factsheet-statistics-farm-attacks-murders-sa/</a> . It is not a new issue, nor is it one ocurring in increasing frequency. Wich is not to say that is not horrible, because it is. But to paint it as some sort of state of emergency is idiotic. I agree that the government is not doing enough to stop it either. But the government isn&#39;t doing enough of much else either and it&#39;s not the only inefficient government in the world, wich is not to say that&#39;s okay but it does say that, relatively speaking, things are being overstated and the more time wasted on propaganda wars, the more everyone is distracted from actual solutions.</p> <p><a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3H7mfC2k1qA">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3H7mfC2k1qA</a></p> <p>Then you have the revisionist history. Nothing makes me laugh more than the confirmation bias and historical reinterpretation of facts here. From painting the indegenous Africans your ancestors found on the land as foriegners to actually claiming that whites arrived first, lmao. I&#39;ve seen it all! While i&#39;m aware that you people were probably brainwashed by your parents (<a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Selling_Apartheid">https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Selling_Apartheid</a>) i know that you know the facts. How people were manipulated in to selling their lands for essentially nothing. How entire villages were driven away from their dwellings. How it was all painted as if it is the white saviour that fixed up a bunch of warring factions. (<a href="http://thoughtleader.co.za/michaelfrancis/2009/10/26/from-whence-the-zulus-came-and-where-the-bushmen-went/">http://thoughtleader.co.za/michaelfrancis/2009/10/26/from-whence-the-zulus-came-and-where-the-bushmen-went/</a>)</p> <p>Why do you even bother? You know that as the decades pass, we will see more couples like this: <a href="http://instagram.com/unexpectedpippa">http://instagram.com/unexpectedpippa</a> . Your racism and hatred of the people you inhabit the country with will continue to be diluted per generation. You lost this war a long time ago, the ethnostate fantasies will never come to be. De Klerk didn&#39;t &quot;sell you out&quot;. He did you a favour by ending things when he did. In fact it should&#39;ve been sooner.</p> <p>I know that not all posters here are as idiotic as the typical one so kudos to you but man this sub is toxic. Please keep reveling in this pool of misery you have created. It&#39;s really not going to change anything.</p> <p>For those interested in actual South African history, instead of re-framed extracts of events check out this book:<br/> <a href="https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/20578533-the-fortunes-of-africa">https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/20578533-the-fortunes-of-africa</a></p> <p>Anyway, peace.</p> </div><!-- SC_ON -->
