Never before in the racially unstable history of South Africa has the
country been so polarized by hate speech, Black Economic
Empowerment and Affirmative Action. Now, with reversed
roles the question should be asked if whites can count on
the same human rights as were awarded their fellow black citizens.
Nelson Mandela said: “For to be free is not merely to cast off
one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances
the freedom of others.” Does this pertain to the freedom of whites too?
Julius Malema sings about killing whites and taking away their land
without compensation. The courts determined that it is hate-speech,
but he continues to sing it. According to international law, as set
out by the United Nations Committee on the Elimination of Racial
Discrimination, an early warning mechanism where racial
discrimination has reached alarming levels is: ” (b) Presence of
a pattern of escalating racial hatred and violence, or racist
propaganda or appeals to racial intolerance by persons, groups
or organizations, notably by elected or other State officials;”
Affirmative action as implemented by the ANC government is
illegal, it should be time-bound, closely monitored and evaluated.
They should not lead to the maintenance of separate rights for
different groups and should not be continued after their intended
objectives are achieved. Nuff said!
