#WhiteWhine – A 12-Point Rant
1. The time has come for a 10-point dressing down of white South Africans who bitch and moan about everything. Let’s call it #WhiteWhine.
2. Many white South Africans seem unaware that they are considered just a cut above Nazis in the international scoundrel rankings.
3. Even in American movies, white South Africans are often portrayed as generic bad guys, on a par with Nazis, terrorists and rogue aliens.
4. Why are we, white South Africans, portrayed this way? Is it fair that we should be so grossly stereotyped? Are we really like Nazis?
5. The answer: it’s understandable. Why? Imagine if the Nazis had retained their ill-gotten gains after the Second World War.
6. You’re thinking: “Bullshit! We aren’t Nazis! We didn’t commit genocide!” Well, perhaps you and your parents didn’t, but our ancestors did.
7. White people have murdered and exploited other nations and peoples for centuries, since colonial times, when our days of privilege began.
8. You’re thinking: “Ja, but what can I do about that?” Well, let’s look at how Germany has dealt with its grotesque Nazi past.
9. Germany has flourished by working hard, trying to do better, setting an example in terms of equality, cooperation and generosity.
10. White SA’ns who bitch and moan need to imagine Nazis bitching and moaning because their world has changed. That’s how you’re seen.
11. BONUS! You need to be more like Germans. Understand the privileges you enjoy. Do better. Strive for equality, cooperation, generosity.
12. EXTRA BONUS! You’re thinking: “Get off your high horse, arsehole.” But I already shot the horse and gave away the meat a long time ago.
