I am ashamed. I do not claim to be the specialist on the topic of South Africa, or anything for that matter, but you need only one fifth of a brain to understand that there is more than that in the situation. The production company behind the documentary failed to find it. How is that kind of rubbish even shown nationally? People interviewed, regardless of which passports they had in their pockets, talked just like too many white South Africans do and that, my friend, is not very good thing at all.
My apologies for my fellow countrymen failing on this one. Unfortunately this seems to be more of a dominant practice than a one-off mistake as I have been writing before.
There are trouble, no doubt, but what if European or North American trouble would be shown in such a blunt and one sided way on the media. Firstly I am relatively sure that it would not, and secondly if that were to happen, it would probably end up with a diplomatic crisis if not never-ending hate and possibly a war.
To sooth my feelings I read a wonderful article by Tsidi Ibrahim, who is better known as a rapper Jean Grae. She had written a story about her trip to Cape Town where she was born before her family exiled to New York, where she has spend most of her life. I usually do not copy things but please read on and understand. Article was found from All Hip Hop website and although it was directed at the African Americans, this message should be understood by everyone.
