The Black BEE rainbow nation

There has been a big outcry about some young so called privileged white girls dressing as black workers. This has been called racism by some and harmless fun by some.

Now let me explain some of the black racism that is happening now to the whites. Jobless whites are not even allowed to apply for work because they white. Students cant get into university courses because they are white.

Small entrepreneurs cant tender or apply for work cause they are white. So much for the rainbow nation. That is if the rainbow only has shades of black can I call it the rainbow nation. 

Before all the haters both Black and White pick up sticks and hunt me down like I am the monster in Frankenstein I will clarify my claims.

White male in his forties, retrenched due to labour strikes crippling the business he was in, starts applying for work.

Blacks only

He has over twenty years experience, willing to mentor, willing to start at the bottom once again. He has a wife working, young girl (21) unemployed with a young child to support. Only to be told yes the position is open to all BUT they don't want whites. He now faces loss of his house, he has lost all his life savings and will be on the street soon. 

Now lets look at the entrepreneur. Faces with no job prospects the guy decides to go it alone after all these years he has work with the large companies he thinks he can make a difference. He has a product, he has skill, he is willing to negotiate a better deal for his prospective clients.

The proposal is cheaper than his competitors better planned and he is sure he can deliver on or before the dead line. BUT wait, he does not have a black partner, no figure head he has paid to be the face of his company like his competitors. His proposal is not even considered. The project is now behind and costs are escalating but the black consortium that got the job is still on site.

Born free

Lastly the young "born free". She is busy with her last year in school, not top of the class but doing very well, top ten in the grade, in a mixed government school. One of the top sports girls that has represented South Africa, so an all round hard working student. Her dreams are to be a veterinarian.

Dad is worried about funds but willing to do what he need to for his girl. They approach the university to see if she can get in. The good news is her grades are great, she does qualify for the course. The bad news is due to quota systems she can not follow her dreams. Now a black student with lower marks has to be accepted because our young born free is WHITE.

So when people start shouting about whites being racist, look in the mirror and see the race hate that is out there. If we want to grow this country then the rainbow has to show all colours Black and White and every colour in between. Only then can I be proud to be a member of the rainbow nation.
