We have had over 20 years or BEE (Black Economic Empowerment) and more recently BBBEEE (Broad Based Black Economic Empowerment) – when is this going to end???
Discrimination is discrimination
No matter how you try disguise or justify discrimination, if it is discriminatory then it is discrimination. [You can also substitute the words inequality or segregation.]
There is a saying ‘Fighting for peace is like screwing for virginity.’
We can see that Apartheid was/is detrimental to South Africa and South African’s as a whole. So how is Apartheid which was a system of segregation, discrimination and forced inequality going to be resolved through further discrimination, inequality and segregation?
Surely we need to realise that we are all “South African” and that all ideas that cause us to think otherwise are the root cause of our suffering as a people.
Why, if Apartheid has ended do we need to use Apartheid methodology to try ‘fix’ Apartheid – I’m talking about BEE & BBBEEE here.
We are treating symptoms and not the cause and unfortunately treating symptoms is never ending.
