What Racism? I just hate you


My very controversial buddy @LTqha was quoted in an article because of that thing Helen Zille and Simphiwe Dana do every time their periods are synced, well pretty sure Helen don’t get them no more, but whatever. Yeah, I’m being crass because I’m over those two. Anyways I was in Cape Town for five years and I hate it when dem call Cape Town a racist city. I also don’t like that they blame it on Helen Zille, even though I don’t care much for her.

I’m not even sure what racism is anymore. Maybe the word needs to be redefined for our generation. It’s a strange kind of fear that can “sometimes” turn into hate. I’m not trying to talk about the meaning of the word though. Just want to give my usual two cents.

I remember in high school. I was out with my friends at Steers, chilling outside having a late lunch. Then this van pulled up with four huge Afrikaans boys in the back. These guys were massive, they looked like they used springbok horns for tooth picks, I kid you not.

Then the other day I went jogging. Four black guys were on my side of the road, they all looked pretty “gangster”. I crossed the road to get out of their way, again…I was terrified.

So Racist

I had a harsh exchange of words in Pretoria with some old bitter white hag.

Then there was another time at the airport when this Nazi looking bald guy bumped me with his trolley and gave me attitude about it.

Not so much

Then there was this one time I got crappy service at a KFC in the hood from an ignorant black, because my English has a twang.

Then I there’s the shit I have to get from all other black people looting our government.

But it’s not just me. Limpopo people have to deal with xenophobia and David Kau jokes.

People do this to people. Why is it so important to emphasise colour? People are shitty towards their own fucking families. But when black/white is harsh on white/black, OH DEAR LORD its racism! It’s disgusting!!! I’m not making light of racism. That’s NOT what I’m trying to do, but this is South Africa we need to be colour blind, especially in cases where the other person/people see too much colour.

Okay, back to Cape Town

They paint Cape Town like its Alabama in the 1800s and it’s not. Cape Town has the highest concentration of white people. Truth is some of them ARE racist. Why does it come as a huge surprise to people? Cape Town is old, rich and white. These people cannot be reformed. I don’t know if Helen Zille is one of these people, but she and the DA cannot reach these people with pamphlets on tolerance and screenings of Sarafina. We must just wait for them to all die or move to Australia. Bottom line, the City AWESOME and with some dickery from people who happen to be white. Me I tell them to fuck off and just get on with it.

P.S. People who have the beeeeegest problem with Cape Town go there like once a twice a year. But people who’ve beeeeen living there absolutely love it.

P.S.2 Everyone who’s affiliated with that Asoka place…yeah, they’re going to die a long terrible death.

P.S.3 Happy New Year
