    It gets better. We now have a white guy that vandalized it. In the mean time there are at least three different hearings going on, the ANC is trying to make a treason case out of it.

    ANOTHER PERSPECTIVE...


    I am a racist

    23 May 2012, 07:06

    A South African artist called Brett Murray has been causing a huge stir since his painting of South Africa's president titled The Spear was put up in a local gallery. The ANC have worked themselves up into a total frothy about the painting and their biggest issue with it - It's racist. ???????

    Disrespectful, maybe. Rude, maybe. But racist???

    That little word that has become the political whip with which the ANC work the masses up into angry mobs and riots anytime something happens that they don稚 like. And it's becoming really really tiring.

    In South Africa, the word racist has lost it's original meaning and now only get's used to describe a white person doing something a black person doesn稚 like. You never hear it used in any other context. You can稚 say to a black CEO that he is racist because he won稚 hire white people, no - he's just making sure that only blacks get hired because of BEE. You can稚 call a university racist because they won稚 accept an application from a white student with straight A's for 8 subjects - instead taking on a black student who barely passed matric. Nope, they e not racist, they e just correcting the wrongs of the past. But god forbid you do hire the white person or you do admit the white student, you'll be branded racist by the government quicker that you can say 田olour shouldn稚 be the issue here because how dare you choose a white person over a black person in a democratic South Africa.

    Most of the time when you are a white person and you call your fellow countrymen to be held accountable for their unacceptable words and actions such as corruption, nepotism, fraud, theft, you'll be branded a racist.

    Today, I shouted at a taxi driver who pushed in-front of me nearly driving me into the curb with no regard for the fact that I have a child in the car - I must be a racist, because only racists care about road safety it would seem.

    I complained to the manager of my bank because the woman handling my account is so incompetent and hasn稚 responded to one email or message I致e left her for over 2 months! Nevermind that my account is about to be shut down because of FICA. I must be a racist then because only racists expect service from a bank and stupidly think an organisation is going to actually do the job they promise to do in all their marketing material.

    The other day my husband confronted a woman outside a shopping centre after she carelessly threw her fast food packet on the floor less than 10cm from a dustbin. Her response - "you e just a racist". Yes, you e absolutely right, because only racists care about keeping their city clean and litter free.

    I fired a lady who worked for me once because I caught her rummaging through one of my cupboards and she had taken my passport and other belongings which I found in her bag. Her only response - "you e a racist". Yes, yes I am. Because only racists think that stealing is a criminal offense and is done by people with no morals or conscience.

    I swear being a white person in this country can be very bloody exasperating at times. The ANC has brainwashed the masses with this little word - racist - to the point that it's actually completely lost its meaning and now get's used totally out of context. Most days I just let it pass and I don稚 go into effect of it. But today is not one of those days. Today I'm angry and today I'm sick and tired of it.

    I'm not shouting at you because you e black, I'm shouting because you e a maniac on the roads who is a danger to society.

    I'm not complaining to your manager because you e black. I'm complaining because you e an incompetent moron who is incapable of doing her job properly.

    I'm not firing you because you e black. I'm firing you because you e a thief.

    I'm not confronting you because your black, I'm shouting at you because you e a messy pig who expects other people to clean up your mess.

    Please get over yourselves and move out the way of the remarkably amazing black people who DO take total responsibility and who actually want this country to work for ALL the people who live in it.

    If being a racist in this country means that I will stand up for my rights, fight for what is fair and true and hold everyone around me accountable for their words and actions, then I am a racist through and through. If being a racist means that I believe in freedom of speech and expression and that everyone's point of view is relevant, no matter what colour, age or sex, then I will proudly announce to all who can hear that I am a racist. If being a racist means that I believe we should all be treated with the same rules and consequences and that no-one, especially not the President, is above the law and exempt from criminal prosecution when that law has been broken, then print me a t-shirt saying 的 am a racist and I will wear it in the streets. If being a racist means that I will not stand idly by while the few, corrupt pigs in the ANC rape this country for everything they can get with no regard for the poor and the homeless and the uneducated, then I'll get I'm a racist tattooed on my back.

    Mr Zuma and the ANC - you need to get a different vocabulary. Instead of shouting at someone like Brett Murray about a painting being offensive, maybe you should be asking yourselves why he painted it in the first place. Instead of wanting to take Zapiro to court every time he depicts the president & his shower head in one of his cartoons, why don稚 you stop to realise that there is truth in everything he draws and that your angry responses are really due to the fact that he keeps hitting a nerve that's a little too close to home.

    Maybe, Mr Zuma, it's time to take a long, hard look in the mirror. If you were honest with yourself you壇 see that people actually have very little respect for you because some believe you have lied and cheated your way through your Presidency. According to reports you have been involved with more seedy, corrupt criminals than Horatio Cane and that you have abused funds for personal gain. Even the great Oliver Tambo's daughter doesn稚 think much of you based on what she had to say about the painiting: 滴e should inspire the reverence he craves. This portrait is what he inspired

    You Mr Zuma and your ANC are a bunch of CANTS!

    CAN'T let go of the past
    CAN'T stop operating from a place of revenge and hate for what's happened in the past
    CAN'T stop the out of control corruption that is rife throughout every government department
    CAN'T seem to get the education right in this country
    CAN'T say goodbye of Affirmative Action and BEE which is ruining businesses across this land

    But what do I know?

    I'm just a white girl talking about a black man.

    I must be a racist
