SA Myths Debunked


As I have read various articles in the popular press and listened to radio and TV and observed what is going on in the way of legislation, policies, etc I have increasingly come to understand that there are underlying assumptions or beliefs that my entire life experience tells me are invalid.

This section lists those myths that I think are causing the biggest problems in South Africa today:





The white man brought nothing to South Africa

The white man brought the knowledge,  experience, technology and methods that enabled them to develop farms, mines, roads, houses, provide education, etc, etc – refer separate section “What the white man brought to South Africa”


Blacks are descended from a Satanic tribe that bypassed Noah’s flood (Creationist view amongst certain Afrikaners)

There WAS a global flood approximately 4,500 years ago that totally and utterly obliterated ALL life on the planet except the eight humans who survived in the ship built by the man called Noah.

The false belief that blacks are NOT descendants of Noah causes substantial justified resentment and antagonism amongst blacks.


Africans are developed from apes and are much closer to apes than Europeans (Evolutionist view amongst certain Afrikaners)

IF evolution is valid, the fact that Africans and Europeans fit together sexually and are genetically able to procreate functional human beings indicates that they ALL developed from a single man and woman.

This false belief that blacks are originated from another evolutionary strain causes substantial justified resentment and antagonism amongst blacks.


The white man is responsible for the black man’s poverty

400 years ago the black man had nothing of substance – see point 1 – most of them are better off than they were then – it is their inability to create wealth and exploit technology and their excessive breeding beyond their economic capability to support the people they produce that causes the poverty.


Apartheid has suppressed blacks

Apartheid was a REACTION to the barbaric and incompetent conduct of blacks and during the so-called “Apartheid era” huge investments were made BY WHITES to uplift blacks – whites built towns, roads, schools, etc and educated blacks within their own areas in order to prevent them overwhelming white areas (most of which were uninhabited when the white man arrived)


Blacks were created equal to whites

True 4,500 years ago but they have degenerated faster than whites since then or, if you prefer evolution, they have evolved more slowly in the years since there was a single pair of humans – so it is NOT necessarily true today that blacks are equal to whites in terms of capabilities – that said there ARE highly competent blacks who ARE equal to whites but there are NOT that many who have the knowledge and experience to deliver – see the section “There ARE highly intelligent and highly capable Africans – BUT”...


It is possible to put a black person in a position of authority in government or business and they will do the same or better than the white person they replace irrespective of whether they have the knowledge, experience, track record or aptitude to do the job

Whites have prospered BECAUSE they attach huge significance to knowledge, experience, track record and aptitude and only appoint and promote the best.

Almost universal experience of Affirmative Action and Black Economic Empowerment in South Africa over the last twenty years evidences substantively that the majority of blacks in management do NOT know how to do their jobs properly.  On the contrary, they make strategically damaging decisions, ignore fundamentally important maintenance, waste money extravagantly on inappropriate actions, cut costs in the wrong areas and steal because they do not know what else to do with the money under their control.

It is ONLY possible for a person to manage effectively if they have been carefully developed from basic knowledge and experience to management level in the area of endeavour in which they are employed.


All whites are racist

If by racist is meant the aggressive irrational aggression that is evidenced by some blacks towards whites then perhaps some small number of whites are irrationally anti-black but MOST have good reason for their antipathy towards blacks.

If by racist is meant a white person who insists on applying the same standards to blacks that they apply to whites and does NOT make exceptions, indulge stupidity and insists on maintaining white standards then most successful whites ARE racist.

Many (most?) blacks seem to demand that whites tolerate mediocrity, illogical reasoning, inaccurate language, incompetence, arrogant ignorance and, in many cases laziness and dishonesty – Jacob Zuma epitomizes many of these points.


If you give a black everything a white has they will be equally effective

It is probably necessary for blacks to be exposed to white ways of doing things, white standards, white practices for at least two generations before they begin to approach the same levels of strategic insight as the whites they are seeking to replace at senior and executive level.

Early childhood experience is vital to developing this capability and therefore a minimum of two generations and possibly three is required to bring a African from primitive existence to fully equal standing with Europeans in every possible way.

Mother tongue early education is a MASSIVE limiting factor because it excludes the victims from the opportunity to learn effectively in a commercial language, specifically English.


Cadre deployment and affirmative action are a valid responses to the injustices of the past

Cadre deployment and affirmative action have placed a huge number of fundamentally unqualified and incompetent people in positions where they are progressively destroying the fabric of this economy and driving South Africa towards economic disaster.

To the extent that there WERE injustices, progressive accelerated development, such as applied by the South African Defence Force in the 1980’s would be an appropriate course of action – there are NO magic wands.

Most of the claims regarding injustice are FALSE!!


South Africa is prospering under black rule and that proves that blacks are just as capable as whites

No, there was massive inertia for prosperity in the economy at the time of the handover of power and that inertia has enabled the economy to continue thriving – see discussion on “The Time Trajectory of Economic Collapse

Blacks are squandering the maintenance of the core infrastructure of the economy together with the latent wealth of the country for short term frivolities and extravagance and greed based consumption expenditure and this is progressively causing fatal structural damage to the economy.


Whites have oppressed blacks for hundreds of years

Blacks have always outnumbered whites by huge margins, today 9:1 – the blacks have never had the collective will or organizational or technical ability to destroy the whites or drive them out even though they had the numbers to do it.

474 Afrikaners defeated between 6,000 and 15,000 Zulus at Blood River because the blacks did not have the strategic reasoning ability to stand back and starve the Afrikaners into submission, or attack at night, or employ other stratagems but instead threw wave after wave of men into a barrage of gun fire which would shortly have abated when the ammunition ran out – then they gave up and ran away!

Even after Blood River the whites did NOT oppress the blacks, the Zulu still live in Zululand today and have NEVER been dominated by whites within Zululand and yet Zululand is one of the poorest regions in South Africa thereby clearly evidencing that Africans are UNABLE to lift themselves up economically.


White males have monopolized the economy and must step aside to give “Historically Dis-advantaged People” their rightful share of the economy

White males conceptualized and created the economy and infrastructure through their own intellectual effort and sweat from a wasteland with NOTHING except grass huts and animal skin clad barbaric primitives.

White people are the ONLY ones who know how to run this economy successfully – forcing them out is opening the door to structural economic collapse.

No one has a “rightful share” in this economy – the whites have earned it by their sweat and toil and if the blacks want a share they should go ahead and create it for themselves.

The blacks have NEVER been “Historically Disadvantaged” – they had the land at their disposal, just as the whites did, but the blacks did nothing with the land whereas the whites developed the land, beneficiated its produce and created wealth and prosperity.


The ANC was founded by Sol Plaatje and others in response to white oppression

Plaatje and others, having gained some level of white education, decided that they knew much more than they actually did and demanded rights that their knowledge, experience and aptitude did NOT qualify them for – this syndrome, the Dunning-Kruger effect or arrogant ignorance, drives the ANC today with its laws and policies of Cadre Deployment, Affirmative Action and Black Economic Empowerment which are progressively undermining the essential foundations of the South African economy giving rise to the massive economic collapse which is looming.


Bantu Education was one of the most oppressive elements of Apartheid, blacks were fobbed off with second rate schools, teachers and curriculum in order to keep them under

As noted elsewhere Africans had NO culture or education that was relevant to a modern economy.

As a consequence African children starting school were at a major disadvantage to European children who had a culture and educational heritage going back hundreds of years and it was accordingly necessary to follow a different and more basic curriculum in order to teach African children entering the school system things that their European counterparts already knew on entering school.

Furthermore, since Europeans were paying the taxes and providing the teachers it was reasonable that they obtained more advanced facilities, active parent involvement also stimulated this – for the most part Africans were paying little or no tax and, certainly in the early years, were supplying very few teachers, the entire Bantu Education system was therefore a levy generously paid by the European community in order to uplift the African community.

Many farmers built and staffed farm schools at their OWN cost in order to uplift their employees’ children.

In addition, as noted elsewhere, Africans have a remarkable ability to break down things while Europeans maintain and enhance them, the net effect of this was that educational facilities provided to Africans remained basic and were constantly needing repair whereas European communities actively contributed to the maintenance and enhancement of their schools through active Parent-Teacher associations, fund raising, voluntary work, etc.

It was the ANC who, in the 1980’s advocated “liberation before education” and instigated the murder of children who tried to go to school!

The lie about Bantu education is one of the most damaging lies of the ANC and white liberals as it resulted in the ANC almost totally destroying the education system for blacks soon after taking power and also resulted in the closing of Teachers Training Colleges and the institution of the massively inappropriate, and extremely badly implemented, Outcomes Based Education system which caused enormous harm to education, particularly to African education.

As long as the above myths (lies) persist and are NOT debunked and worked out of the economy the looming economic collapse is inevitable.  It is probable that the structural destruction of the South African economy has already developed such inertia that total collapse is inevitable.

Do NOT Impute Motive

From consideration of the current situation in South Africa it is very easy to infer a hidden agenda on behalf of the ANC to destroy Europeans in South Africa, however I have come to understand that this is NOT the case, refer

The counterpoint to this is that the motive of Afrikaner Europeans was ALSO not the motive imputed to them by the ANC and the Western world

One Hundred Thousand challenged to seek the Almighty Creator at the Voortrekker Monument in Pretoria on Monday 16th December 2013

This website evidences the impending utter destruction of South Africa and challenges those who can grasp the seriousness of the situation to come before the Almighty in Pretoria on Monday 16th December 2013 to cry out for deliverance -- see page

If you have NOT seen this YOU need to!

President Jacob Zuma, President of South Africa, leads the ANC Leadership and tens of thousands of ANC supporters in singing "The Cabinet will shoot the Boer with machine guns" in Bloemfontein on 8th January 2012 -- it appears that he may well have done this AGAIN on 16th December 2012

If you have NOT seen this you NEED to

This violates his Oath of Office, the Constitution, and, and, and -- it is a basis for impeachment

The agreement reached in October does NOT neutralize the culpability of the PRESIDENT doing what you will see here

This is NOT a "struggle song" -- the Cabinet during the struggle was made up of Boers -- this is a MODERN song

There is a direct correlation between this and the massive rate of white murders discussed in this book and on this site (between 68,800 and 165,000 since 1994)

There are OTHER very unpleasant unavoidable conclusions to be drawn

Note the enthusiasm of the participants and then ask yourself what conclusion you draw!

This website and the book that is available for free download here discuss this and many other unpleasant facts that point to some very unpleasant conclusions about the direction that South Africa is going

You can download the video from

or from

Please take some time to engage with the content

The ONLY way that Jacob Zuma and the ANC can reverse this is by a widely broadcast public apology by Zuma and his top ANC Cabinet members broadcast on all TV and Radio Channels and many newspapers and CONCRETE action to bring a halt to ending white murders -- in my mind that requires that the Death Penalty is reinstated
