Media freedoms, racist government.. oh the issues South Africans face. After 17 years of “democracy” in South Africa we now have racism against white people.. oh hang on, this has been going on for a while now. It was all over the news that the racist Stellenbosch univeristy actually reverse an application of a prospective student that wanted to study medicne because she is white.
Why in a “free” and equal South Africa do we have a government and education system that discriminates against colour?
The Freedom Front plus sent out a statement:
The racist policy of the government and universities is still after seventeen years marginalising people to only a race and is to the detriment of all South Africans. A black doctor could be seen as only having qualified because of his/her skin colour. Such approach is thus unfair towards black doctors who is competent and did qualify in terms of merit,” Wouter Wessels, national leader of the FF Plus Youth, said.
Wessels reacted to reports of the University of Stellenbosch reversing the approved application of a prospective student to study medicine after discovering that she is white
Wessels added that this type of policy is creating a new generation of aggrieved citizens. “A child who was born in 1994 is turning 18 years old next year. This should be a new hopeful generation. Continuous affirmative action policies have a negative effect on the whole of society. The emphasis is only on race and not on merit – this has a negative impact on the esteem of society. The negative baggage of the past should not be allowed to further taint the present and the future. The youth demands a better dispensation free of racism and marginalisation.”
