Attributes of Europeans and Africans Contrasted



As  I have progressively sought to understand what is happening in South Africa, I have repeatedly returned to seeking fundamental first principles understanding of issues based on an evidence and experienced based analysis of what I can observe based on my OWN life experience.

This has taken place as I have read and listened to what the African People or Bantu or blacks have had to say in the press, on radio and TV, etc.  In doing this I have constantly weighed this up against my experience in South Africa over my life.  I have contrasted this with my experience of people of European descent, both here and in Europe, the United States and Canada.

Since I believe that, while skin colour IS a convenient shorthand reference tool, it is NOT the essence of the distinction and is widely despised, I will refer to the two groups as Africans and Europeans.  Note that the ANC NOW take great pride in referring to “blacks” and disparaging “whites” so the labels, as with much else of the current hypocrisy, have now become acceptable.

In the table that follows I list, in the left hand column, the attributes of People of European Descent that, in my experience, have enabled us to build the huge and thriving economies of Europe, North America, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.  On the right I list the attributes of Indigenous African People which have, in my experience, kept them in poverty and lack and which will take them BACK THERE based on the way they are running South Africa today.

There ARE exceptions to the Attributes of Africans insofar as there are those who have had considerable exposure to “Western” ways while growing up and have learned the values and methods of the Europeans from an early age and who think and act more like Europeans than Africans but these are by far the MINORITY.

These points are significant because the attributes of Europeans are what has made this economy and those of Europe, North America and Australia and New Zealand so successful – to take over the South African economy and try to run it using African methods is to condemn it to an African outcome which is readily understood by travel to Africa North of South Africa.


Attributes of People of European Descent – leaders – those who create wealth and economy

Attributes of Indigenous African People – as evidenced by the conduct of the leaders of the  ANC and those in public office and business


Intense work ethic, long  hours, hard work

Seem to have a total lack of understanding that large numbers of people sitting at home in rural areas doing nothing drains the personal economy and causes poverty and low living standards for those who are working AND those at home – then blame the Europeans for the consequences of African actions or lack of action.


Investment mind set – plant trees today for benefits years from now

Seem to have a complete lack of understanding of economics and other fundamentals – appear to believe they can steal and pillage from the economy without massive long term damage.

Seem to have a Garden of Eden mind-set – “money grows on trees, we had the trees, the Europeans stole the trees (farms, mines, etc) we must take them back – help yourself” – seemingly a complete lack of understanding that the current economy is the consequence of intense European creative endeavour and intellectual input.

Things such as Soccer Stadiums are wealth – no concept of productive assets or return on investment.

Seeming belief that all there is today was here when the Europeans arrived and we are entitled to it with no effort on our part other than to force the Europeans out.


Intense appreciation of the value of knowledge and experience – seek understanding and knowledge, great sacrifices for education

Seemingly little or no appreciation of the critical role of knowledge, experience, innovation, creativity, education and intellectual property in creating wealth – no understanding that a farm or a mine is the consequence of the mobilization of advanced knowledge and experience NOT land only.

Seem to think they can appoint people irrespective of knowledge and experience without damage to the economy.

“The Dunning–Kruger effect is a cognitive bias in which unskilled individuals suffer from illusory superiority, mistakenly rating their ability much higher than average. This bias is attributed to a metacognitive inability of the unskilled to recognize their mistakes” (Wikipedia)

In other words “arrogant incompetence” – this characterizes the vast majority of actions by the present Government of South Africa and the Cadres and Affirmative Action appointees they have put in place who have little or no comprehension of what is required to do their jobs other than, apparently, to steal money for their own and the party’s benefit and make life miserable for Europeans.


Careful with money and fixed assets – look after them, save, etc

Extravagant with money, do NOT know how to look after things, squander, consumption, inadequate maintenance.


Cautious in terms of number of children – number they can afford and give a good education

Children are wealth – breed as many as you can, even if it overloads your economy and you can barely feed them and cannot educate them and they grow up to be illiterate savages.


Believe the best of all, courtesy, considerate, gentleness, minimum force, eschew violence except if extremely provoked and then resort to rule of law BEFORE the Army is called in

Belief that violence is acceptable and, at times, necessary to get own way, coupled to gross brutality and savagery – choke an elderly woman to death by stuffing pages from her bible down her throat – wrap an elderly woman in plastic bags and then burn her with a hot iron until she dies – ram a sharpened pole into a person’s anus so they die in agony – hack a person’s jawbone out as a trophy and a warning to others – rip a person’s guts open and eat their gall bladder and cut off their genitals for muti (magic).

Aggression and false accusation are acceptable means to an end.


Conscious of how LITTLE they know, willing to listen to others, hold back if unsure, constantly seek knowledge

This often causes Europeans to believe what Africans say because they do NOT have personal knowledge and the claims are so outrageous that they assume they have a foundation in fact

See above re the Dunning – Kruger effect or syndrome – arrogant ignorance – think they know better than people who are years older than they are and have hugely superior knowledge and experience.

Think they can do anything they like because they have no basis to comprehend the negative consequences of their actions and then blame Europeans when things go wrong and seek to take even more.

No comprehension that they are in the process of destroying the economy.


Focus on justice – right and wrong – strong self-discipline and discipline in society – low crime

Total lack of integrity – lies are justified when dealing with Europeans – Zuma about his Nkandla home loan, ANC “shoot the boer is just a struggle song we don’t mean it” – false accusations against Europeans in order to achieve Constructive Dismissal and force them to leave in the interests of Affirmative Action.

Power–Fear mentality – intimidate opponents, winner takes all and destroy the losers.


Innovative, exercise initiative, create things where there is nothing

Wait to have it handed to them on a plate – do not clear the rubbish, demand houses and toilets and then do not maintain them, do little or nothing to uplift themselves or engage in commerce.


Generous towards those in lack – give as much as they can – charities, etc – do their best to uplift the under privileged – done this particularly with regard to Africans

Greedy, generous to family but no concern if their actions cause others to go without food and housing, callous disregard, particularly for Europeans that are harmed by their actions.

Remove funding for charities or take money from charities for African benefit.

Trash the mine to fund an extravagant life style and leave the workers to starve.


Deep experiential understanding of cause and effect and root cause

Seemingly no comprehension of cause and effect – seem to think they can do whatever they like with no consequence and when there ARE totally foreseeable consequences they blame the Europeans and Apartheid and demand more.


Belief in the Creator through the covenant of Yahooshua {Jesus}

The majority of Africans are Ancestor worshippers and practisers of witchcraft – even those in the “Church” hold onto this to a large extent.

There are massive curses associated with this which hold Africans in bondage and stealing from the Europeans will NOT change this as evidenced throughout Africa.

It is ONLY through massive conversion that change can be expected.

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
