I was born in Scotland then went to SA at the age of 9 went to school in witbank spent most of my life in that beautiful country I was friends with many Afrikaners and I must say they have a wonderful culture
I'm a coloured I love Steve and totally agree with most of his views... He has great leadership skills and values... I think We in our community should get leaders of his caliber and can join him, We are facing the same kind of discrimination as the Afrikaners... We need to start standing together and work as a unit... We share the same cultures and language, We are practically blood related... Jan Van Reebeck is our forefather too, the ANC keeps on mocking and degrading him on their mission to destroy us and our heritage... A independent Afrikaans country can be be established, I think that's the best ideaand I have nothing but love for the boers.
I have voted NO in that referendum. But lets look at the real figures. At the start of 19th century blacks South Africans was found to be 3,5-million. By 1954, the African population had soared to 8,5-million. And by 1990, there were a full 35-million. During apartheid, black population grew apace however because they had the benefit of the Broers' medical knowledge and their excellent agricultural skills. Before Apartheid, in 1946, the average life expectancy of African South Africans was only 38 years. During the apartheid era (1948 to 1994), blacks’ average life expectancy had risen to 64 years. It was on a par with Europe's average life expectancy. Moreover, blacks’ infant death rates had by then also been reduced from 174 to 55 infant deaths per thousand. This was considerably lower than the rest of the African continents. According to the Human Rights Commission statistics, 21,000 people died in political violence in South Africa during apartheid. Of those deaths, the vast majority, 92%, have been primarily due to ANC / PAC killing blacks who disagreed. The white security forces caused only 518 deaths (5.6%) throughout this period. In the Apartheid South Africa, 7,036 people died per annum. In New ANC South Africa, 24,200 die per annum. Interpol figure for new ANC South Africa is 47,882. http://south-Africa-pig.blogspot.com.au/2010/10/how-many-blacks-died-under-apartheid.html
Steve, Mandela was not a good man at all. He was just another puppet of The Crown - just like Malema is now. Those Brits are at practiced manipulating things behind the scenes. Did you not know that the Transkei was completely free and independent at the time that Mandela tool power in SA and that Bopututswana was with a couple of weeks of it;s own complete independence. Neither has any independence now and their minerals belong to a corporation called "The Republic of South Africa" which is not a republic but instead it is a corporation which is listed on the NYSE.
A good and truthful synopsis by Steve - I was there for Askari, and in 1974 I was also part of a clandestine force to get Portuguese settlers out of Mozambique - saw first-hand what communists did to dissenters, priests, teachers in religious schools and workers in Catholic hospitals. I came to believe then and still believe now that the shooting of any communist is a good and noble act.
We were sold out by De Klerk , I was also a leftist and voted Yes !!! I feel the same way Steve. We really were ignorant!!!!
I am reading an astounding and wonderful book "Ama Bhulu" by Harry Booyens. All Whites read it and especially all white people of South Africa. Your Boers, READ THIS BOOK at once. Your history is fascinating and great, noble and fine.
Concerning the origin of Apartheid: South Africa was under British rule until 31 May 1961 and the actual system of Apartheid, where South African citizens were classified according to race and colour in their passports and areas were divided into "Europeans Only" and "Non-Europeans Only" was established under British rule after the end of the Second Anglo-Boer War and at least officially implemented under British rule in South Africa since 1920! This does not match up with the common false belief/ misconception that Apartheid, which is the Afrikaans term for "separation", is an Afrikaans invention from the National Party. Indeed Apartheid was constructed and implemented by the British! Winston Churchill, Cecil John Rodes and Jan Smuts each played very important roles!
Two British articles that give more insight and background: https://www.independent.co.uk/voices/apartheid-made-in-britain-richard-dowden-explains-how-churchill-rhodes-and-smuts-caused-black-south-1370856.html and http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/africa/features/storyofafrica/12chapter5.shtml
From the first article, titled "Apartheid: made in Britain: Richard Dowden explains how Churchill, Rhodes and Smuts caused black South Africans to lose their rights" (https://www.independent.co.uk/voices/apartheid-made-in-britain-richard-dowden-explains-how-churchill-rhodes-and-smuts-caused-black-south-1370856.html):
"It was two renowned Englishmen, Cecil Rhodes and Winston Churchill, who at crucial moments planted the seeds that were to ripen into policies which deprived black people of democratic rights in South Africa. A third, Jan Smuts - an Afrikaner by birth who became a committed supporter of the British Empire - was also an architect of laws which were later to become the framework of apartheid." "He passed the first piece of legislation which separated white and black areas and in 1920 the Native (Urban Areas) Act which laid down the principle of residential segregation in urban areas, keeping blacks away from white residential areas."
From the latter article ( http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/africa/features/storyofafrica/12chapter5.shtml ):
"South Africa was not the only part of the British Empire where racial segregation was practised. In Kenya and Rhodesia it was as thoroughly institutionalised as in South Africa. In other parts of the Empire it was more piecemeal and not written into the legislation."
