Blacks themselves give a lot of clues as to what they want or need, especially when they think some politically correct answer is not required. Very few would venture to actually admit to wrong-doing such as the infamous Pallo Jordan of the South African revolutionary movement ANC (African National Congress), or as the American lawyer Michael Smith pointed out – black Americans would rather believe a cellmate than their own lawyer.
Lately a black South African twitter account tweeted that “they (blacks) do not want to be civilized” – something I would actually believe given their extremely limited and limiting continued tribal and communist education. Then quite surprisingly the South African Moeketsi Masola was published saying that he is both “ashamed to be black and a man”. Stories abound here in South Africa of “black diamonds” – a term denoting black people in senior corporate positions they were never qualified for – which (still) allow those white-run corporations to compete for lucrative government tenders. As long as they have a “scorecard” showing black management and ownership, they can still do business with an anti-white government.
The South African government itself is of course virtually 100% black except for a few important positions such as the Department of Trade and Industry Minister which manages the very influential state-owned enterprises of which there are thousands – with more to come. Then you also get the arrogant side where a “shortage” of money is simply downplayed by the possibility of selling “more bonds” to finance an unsustainable welfare state despite not purporting to be “welfare oriented”. South Africa proposes to be a constitutional state similar to America that actually functions like a socialist/Marxist regime behind the “black” curtain. Apparently 40% of parliamentarians are communist (of the old type) and I will not go into the percentage of councillors in municipalities that are illiterate. Municipal finances are in such disarry that something like 90% of South African municipalities get qualified audits.
Black people, especially in South Africa, agree that they cannot manage the country, but they continue nonetheless! They agree to be token appointments, but continue nonetheless. Recently Matome Letsoalo published an article with the title “African Leaders: Heroes or desperate house negroes?” The term house negro is of American origin (I believe) and he actually describes the President of South Africa (Jacob Zuma who incidentally has zero qualifications beyond primary or elementary school) as such a person or from that “horde”. That he asks how Obama can promote peace while causing war at the same time is perhaps a different discussion because it may have unpalatable answers such as to get rid of those same “hordes”.
That there is an inferiority complex in black people is assured – the question is how does one help these people? – not all of them though – because some are quite self-respecting and self-disciplined. But there are many others that cry for help. Since politics won’t help and neither will religion, the controlling elements in black people’s lives are tribalism and unionism. The interesting thing in South Africa is that unionism (something the anointed future SA President is well aware of) sits on the same side of the table as the government (as an alliance). In fact he appears to be intimately involved in the Marikana shooting where 34 miners died in a hail of police fire because he was most likely a black-diamond Lonmin shareholder.
The last “proper” vestige of influence on the crying masses therefore remains a single concept, i.e. tribal leadership. Unfortunately these “traditional leaders” are making things worse by claiming land they never possessed and monies they did not work for. The kind of land and funds that would have benefitted the individual crying black citizen immensely. But then that requires real (literate) black leadership heroes, maybe even somebody like Prince Buthelezi – not the Malema populist type.
