I saw this response on Mybroadband by a poster called R13. I thought it was a nice summary of some white people must be blind not to see.
For the average voter, the ANC is not a failing party. You have a house thanks to the ANC. You have electricity, thanks to the ANC. You have running water, thanks to the ANC. Or you don't have all those things but your neighbouring village or settlement has them and the same is promised you next time 'round. In this person's mind, without the ANC all those things would not have happened to them. (Rooster : And probably wouldn't have if Apartheid still existed with those NP morons at the helm.)And then you look around your neighbourhood and you see young ANC bucks driving around in the latest & greatest SUV and you think, hey my kids can aspire to that one day, this stuff didn't happen in the bad old days! All that didn't happen when the white man were in charge. So in the average person's mind the ANC is still the best & greatest. - R13
(Rooster : And the white parties still the shittiest and worst in the minds of blacks with their white centered ,snide critique and mean spirited uncontructive jibes about black ethics and competence. No attempt to reconcile by many whites in the general public too, no wonder blacks don't want to vote us in.)
And from the same thread: Why do blacks need help ? Whites in this country didn't get hand ups. We all worked hard to get where we are - some twat.
A chap named Ozzicapie puts this muppet in his place.
Yeah poor innocent whites, never voted for the Nats, who never implemented Apartheid, never came up with such gems such as creating nationalised companies using the "civilised labour policy, never provided houses for these so called 'civilised' sorry white workers, never felt it necessary to have blacks carry passports and working permits in their own country, never gave these people inferior education, never had businesses in the 'coloured/black' areas whilst denying business zoning to residents etc etc etc.
No it was all hard work by the poor underprivileged whites that got them to where they are, and the bloody ANC is wasting all of that.
Mind you shhhhh dont tell anyone, it is still great here we can still afford US college fees for our kids...oh and then we will bugger off.
