A disturbing quote by Jacob Zuma: has entered the Mass Media:
""Of all the white groups that are in South Africa, it is only the Afrikaners that are truly South Africans in the true sense of the word," " says "Jacob Zuma": "ANC" ("African National Congress") President: probable future "South African" "President".
(Zuma's apparent statements: are: as: quoted from: IOL (Independent; South African; Secular) 02 / 04 / 2009; )
The "DA" ("Democratic Alliance"): via "Member of Parliament" ("MP"): "Desiree van der Walt": has challenged comments by "ANC" President "Jacob Zuma": that "Afrikaans" "Whites": are the only "truly" "South African" "whites": a seeming slur on "English speaking" "White" persons in "South Africa": presented to "Afrikaans" potential voters. "Zuma" previously escaped with comments that "Afrikaaners" were the only true "White Tribe": the "DA", says his latest comments: are unconstitutional.
The "ANC": "African National Congress"; "South Africa"'s current "Ruling Party": has already amalgamated with the "New Nationalist Party" ("NNP"), which in Apartheid: while known as the "Nationalist Party": ensured white rule, racial segregation: and the police persecution of Black and white opponents of their "Apartheid" system. The "ANC": in seeking "Afrikaner" votes: has frequently: seemingly endangered the "Constitutional" view of other Ethnically: "European" South Africans: seemingly making them even further fear: the focus of government policies already entrenched: of discriminating against "white" South Africans.
Meanwhile: the same "ANC"'s "treasure general": "Mathews Phosa" asked "Afrikaans" "South Africans" to stay in the country: something which again seems to be a reference to "ANC" discrimination for the same people who were advantaged most by "Apartheid": while "English" Speaking Citizens of "South Africa" were second class citizens: followed by different races in order.
"Phosa" assured "Afrikaans" "South Africans" that they would not be discriminated against: via them, as noted by IOL: "Phosa said there was no room for discrimination at the SABC or anywhere else in the country.
"(IOL (Independent; Secular; South African) 02 / 04 / 2009)
The Ethnicity obsessed "ANC run" "South African" State: continues to openly support policies which judge whether or not a person gets into Varsity, becomes a judge: or gets a job: based on the colour of their skin, and what sex they are. That these words are addressed to Afrikaans voters, and not white people in general: has raised further concerns over a perceived "ANC" prejudice: for one "White" man over another.
Further: these comments create "Apartheid" era fears: that (this time) non-"Afrikaans" "whites": may be chased out of the country: as the "Zimbabwean" farmers were.
"ANC" policies: such as "BEE" ("Black Economic Empowerment"), "BBBEE" ("Broad Based Black Economic Empowerment")), AA ("Affirmative Action"), and others: often involve companies noting in advertising for a job: that they desire a person of certain ethnicity: so as to not be penalized by "South African" Race based regulations: many companies: once they reach a certain size: need to have a certain proportion of "Black" owners: and a certain portion of "Black" (non-"white") employees working for the company, as well as a certain minimum amount in management. Fully "Black owned" companies are celebrated in "South Africa": a company with a certain ration of "Black" owners: is called a "Black Chip" company. many industries suffer due to a shortage of "Black" skills, while "white" persons with these skills are unemployed. There are no real measures to ensure any amount of Minority "White" ownership in "South Africa": and many "White" "South Africans": have left the country: in search of job opportunities elsewhere.
Following threats of violence against the "DA", and other alleged "Counter-revolutionaries": including judges: the "ANC": has continued to create fear among "White" and peace-loving "South Africans".
