The Truth about Exploitation, Oppression, etc




1.    Were excesses

Yes, there were excesses, there were things that were, on the face of it, plain unreasonable BUT for the most part MOST of the allegations are totally baseless.


2.    Europeans worked extremely hard

The Europeans brought little physical with them but a body of diverse knowledge and experience and a well-established culture.  They built their houses, farms, businesses, towns, mines and industries from scratch.  They worked long hours and mobilized whatever resources were available to them.


3.    Europeans mostly settled where there were NO Africans

In many / most places where the Europeans settled there were NO African people – the Afrikaners in particular CHOSE it this way.  Furthermore, in huge areas of the country there were NO African people because there were NOT enough African people to populate all the land and the conditions were such that the African people did NOT have the technology, method or creative ability to master the environment.  The Africans concentrated in the areas of benign and favourable climate, vegetation and natural resources.


4.    African leaders were brutal and harsh

A few centuries ago many (most?) African leaders were harsh, brutal and unjust and ruled harshly and exploited their subjects (much as many African rulers do today).


5.    Africans voluntarily moved to European areas

African people migrated to areas of European settlement seeking the things that the Europeans could offer and the more benign living conditions.  They BARTERED their labour for food, clothing, shelter and other things – they were NOT slaves in the formal sense of the word.  Their European masters expended considerable effort training them because they lacked even the most basic skills and, as a consequence there was an expectation of extended service in order to produce a return on the investment in training.


6.    Many Africans were not productive

Some African workers learned rapidly and became valued servants but others were less productive, less honest and became a source of frustration to their employers – but it was virtually impossible to get rid of them because, having experienced the benefits of working for the Europeans it was very difficult for them to return to their previous environment and, when angered, they were prone to theft and violence – so the relationship was frequently strained.


7.    Europeans were busy surviving – no time to oppress

At the same time the Europeans were caught up in the day to day bustle of surviving and building and had limited time to engage with the African people in any meaningful way.  Furthermore, they had no common ground, no basis to justify major time or other investments in their African workers – no one had invested in them to that extent previously.

BUT they ALSO did not have the time, interest or resources to exploit or oppress the African peoples around them – many even refused to employ Africans as a consequence of bad experiences and built their farms and businesses solely on the sweat efforts of their families, and, in some cases, coloured workers.


8.    Some Europeans went out of their way to uplift

Some Europeans went out of their way to uplift their African workers with schooling, health care, etc – they were NOT under any obligation to do this.  They did this entirely at their OWN cost, including building the school and employing the teachers.


9.    Lie of oppression rooted in Dunning-Kruger effect

The lie of oppression and exploitation took root when some of these African people, who had been privileged to receive some education fell into the trap of the Dunning-Kruger syndrome and concluded that since they now had some of the white man’s knowledge and education they were now equal to the white man when, in reality there was major unconscious incompetence.  Sol Plaatje was one who was at the forefront of this arrogant ignorance and this has perpetuated in the ANC today.

This incompetence resulted in serious losses to Europeans and in destructive behaviour such that increasing numbers of Europeans distanced themselves from these Africans while these arrogant incompetents made more and more unreasonable demands and false accusations based on their limited understanding.  Out of these tensions both Apartheid and the ANC were born.

The reason South Africa has allegedly the greatest disparity between have’s and have not’s is because of the incompetence of the Africans and the extremely hard working nature of the Europeans – it is questionable whether this IS the country with the greatest extreme.


10. Other lies

It should be noted that reports that the strikers at Lonmin near Marikana were earning R4,000 per month are completely false.  Most of the were earning R10,000 to R12,000 per month BEFORE deductions such as Medical Aid, housing, repayments of debts to loan agents, etc. 


In other words, the so-called abused and exploited miners are NOT abused and exploited at all – if anyone is exploiting them it is their people who sit back home in the rural areas and do NOTHING and wait for handouts  from the people on the mines.


There are a SUBSTANTIAL number of whites who earn the same or less than the above and manage to live respectable lives, rent apartments, drive cars, dress respectably, etc.


The problem is NOT what mine management are doing to “exploit” their workers it is AGAIN with African inadequacies.  The ANC and the  Unions do NOTHING to publicize the truth or to correct the lies and, again, international opinion turns against “exploitive whites” who are actually doing their best to run a sustainable mining operation under difficult conditions


It is further reported that despite higher than inflation wage increases in the mining sector over many years productivity is DROPPING.


Once more we see African falsehoods working to destroy the economy.


I suspect that you will find similar false statements in other sectors where wage disputes are occurring.

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
