Black Entrepreneur, Herman Mashaba, Agrees that Affirmative Action Policies like BEE are Killing Us. Firemen that Can’t Put out fires, doctors that can’t read X-rays: what’s Next?
Herman Mashaba: The Johannesburg based founder of Black Like Me and CEO of Lephatsi Investments is highly critical of race based economic transformation policies, or Black Economic Empowerment, claiming that they “undermine economic growth and polarise society. He calls on government to amend the labour laws and to invest in good quality education. He says the current approach by government is in fact undermining the job prospects of millions of young black South Africans” who would benefit from white entrepreneurs presumably.
He also claims the ANC are mirroring what the National party did pre-1994, and that it was not only counterproductive for SA to support BEE, but morally and ethically wrong.
Mr Mashaba recently told Tim Modise of BizNews.com that he didn’t believe that his views were that controversial at all, stating that:
“What’s controversial with wanting an economy that is functional? An economy that can be inclusive and an economy that can really deal with the inequality that we’re finding ourselves in, as a country, and my view is that for us, as a country, to deal with this inequality is to deal with this joblessness first. We can only really do this if we apply fairness in our system.”
Fairness? In South Africa? Go on….
“I’m saying for us, as a country, if we are not comfortable as South Africans to accept dealing with the racist policies of the National Party, then how can we be comfortable with BEE? I cannot really see and feel comfortable for me, as a South African, continuing again with race based policies and I believe that raced based policies is not going to be the solution, in really dealing with the economic challenges our country is facing.”
Although Mr Manshaba’s English is not perfect I think we can clearly understand what he is trying to say. We need to implement common sense solutions to tackle the problems people without any common sense created.
Jack Sen’s perspective
Firstly I hope that the political elite running South Africa into the ground will start listening to men like Mr Mashaba and forget the lies and hatred, Marxist swine like Yossel Slovo sold them.
Mashaba’s being a black leader in a black ruled country means – whether people like it or not, his voice has impact. We need people like him to voice their concerns over the direction the nation is headed and we need to support them.
And just where is SA headed if we don’t start embracing alternative voices?
Loadshedding will eventually lead to long-term nationwide blackouts, and the “foodshedding” members of our political elite are already referencing, will end up as wide scale famine.
I believe in a meritocracy, where the person best qualified for the job, gets the job.
BEE rewards people based on colour while punishing people of merit. That’s wrong regardless of who is in power….
Ramifications of Affirmative Action Policies Infecting All Western Nations, and Who ACTUALLY Benefits
What if the fireperson hired to save lives, isn’t strong enough to lift you on her back as your home burns besides you, or the rugby athlete suiting up for the team you cheer for, was’t chosen because of his merit, but because of the colour of his skin?
What if candidates better suited to fill these roles were in fact overlooked because they were of a different race, creed, sex, or sexual orientation?
In spite of the fact we are told we are living in a meritocracy, where the best person applying for a job is hired for the job – we aren’t.
Whether you are a citizen of the United States, Great Britain, South Africa or anywhere in the pathologically egalitarian west for that matter, by now you’re well aware that affirmative action programs are dictating hiring practices, driving down GDP and making a mockery of our once proud institutions.
In the US, white and Asian heterosexual males and even quite remarkably members of the nation’s native population who’ve been forgotten in the Marxist madness due to the fact there are too few of them and they’re typically too drunk to vote on election day, are underrepresented in the public sector, while blacks, Hispanics and let’s not forget the Jews pulling society’s strings, all but run the proverbial show.
Jews on the other hand-behind most of the Left’s policies, have in fact all but taken over the American judiciary, Ivy League institutions and saturate every facet of the media.
Harvard graduate and businessman, Ron Unz-who by the way is Jewish himself, points out in his much maligned “Myth of American Meritocracy,” that Jewish racism is in fact accelerating at Harvard. He documents that between “2000 and 2011, only the Jewish group increased in percentages at Harvard, while every other group fell.” The Jewish increase of 35 percent was above an already well documented Jewish over-representation.
Jews are also doing quite well in SA, dominating the media, and are overrepresented in academia and business. (The names and faces of the men and women behind the rise of the ANC and white genocide in SA)
The rest of us on the other hand aren’t doing as well-being literally forced out of our homes, farms, and nations by a shadowy elite bent on our destruction.
Whether white males are being driven from their families by a misandrist family court, their jobs due to unfair labour policies, or from our universities, by the Marxist elite, let’s be clear: white heterosexual males are being punished for being white heterosexual males.
The left argue that affirmative action is necessary to redress societal inequalities caused by something they refer to as ‘white privilege’-something Ashkenazi Jews often whiter in appearance than I am, aren’t afforded. If a few people die in fires because the lass they hired can’t carry a grown man down a ladder-who cares!
As long as the people running our societies make off like bandits, the policies have worked.
Besides, who cares about lives when you’re fighting white privilege!!
Understanding White Privilege
Wikipedia defines white privilege (or white skin privilege) as a term for societal privileges, existing in predominantly white societies, that benefit white people beyond what is commonly experienced by non-white people in the same social, political, or economic circumstances. The term denotes both obvious and less obvious unspoken advantages that white persons may not recognize they have, which distinguishes it from overt bias or prejudice.
For all intents and purposes, Marxist theoreticians purport that white men, by way of their race, sex and sexual orientation are being given an unfair socio-economic advantage over the globe’s oppressed people, which includes non-whites, gays (regardless of colour), women (again, regardless of colour) and cripples. Yeah there I said it, cripples!!!!
White working class Western men were also once included in this demographic but wore out their welcome once it became apparent they were never going to rise up against their capitalist bosses and national homelands.
Because of their failure to recognise the non-existent benefits of communism, white working men lost their privilege, to be called…underprivileged and oppressed.
Although they were once categorised as an oppressed group, the white underclass/proletariat Marx targeted, would become part of the white oppressor class-if that maddening logic makes any sense at all. (for the most revealing article on Zionist supremacist Marx you’ll find ANYWHERE on the web, click here)
Apparently by even contesting the validity of the Marxian concept, we are in fact engaging in hateful, mysoginistic and racist behaviour.
The fact I am in fact 1/4 Indian (Hindu granddad) is irrelevant.
The fact that males are underrepresented on the sort of college campus that filled this heifer’s head with this garbage, and are literally a dying breed in the academic world, is an inconvenient reality.
The fact that the primary group actually hurt by affirmative action, one that commits suicide at rates unseen by other demographics and is currently the most likely to find itself on foodstamps for the first time, is also irrelevant.
Try being an unemployed white male….a male period, in a family court dispute, on an American college campus or at the receiving end of a false rape allegation, and you’ll understand why ‘privilege’ and ‘male’ should NEVER be used in the same sentence!
White American women; who can head down to any police station in the country, cry rape/domestic violence, and get a man locked up without one shred of evidence….certainly, but white men?
(Author note – Please see the London Independent’s story on Sen: Ukip candidate reveals he is a ‘National Socialist’ after anti-Semitic tweets
Jack Sen was a UKIP prospective Member of Parliament for northern England before being unceremoniously, & quite publicly, suspended by his party one week prior to the General Election for ‘anti-Semitism’, and attempting to broach the subjects of indigenous displacement in Britain and raising the issue of the genocide being waged against White people in South Africa. He’s been torn apart of heroic patriotism in the Independent, by Channel 4 News, the Guardian etc. His scathingly sardonic writing and orations have been featured on the European Knights Project, Praag.org, at the London Forum, on the Occidental Observer, UKIP West Lancs official site, ManTalk– and countless other places our best men speak out against societal injustice.

South Africa’s Shameful Black Economic Empowerment Policy
Nowhere is this abhorrent trend more destructive than in South Africa – where it is currently illegal to hire white, Indian, Asian and coloured persons for government jobs, even to promote an existing non-black employee for that matter.
So, what exactly does Black Economic Empowerment Policy (BEE) in South Africa entail?
“Under BEE, it is illegal to hire a white person for a government job or give a promotion to an existing white or non-black employee. Public and private firms that receive even the slightest subsidy or tax credit from the government, that are shown to be hiring or promoting non-blacks ahead of black applicants/candiates (that includes Indians, and light skinned mulattos as well) risk defunding, even criminal prosecution.”
(Note-The BEE does favour Chinese candidates due to Chinese investment in the country. We will be covering this story later on in the month.)
This idiotic and destructive policy, which Jaco Coetzee likes to refer to as Affirmative action on steroids, is part of what the ANC call the Black Economic Empowerment Act. Liberal wikipedia states that, Black Economic Empowerment (BEE) is a programme launched by the South African government to redress the inequalities of Apartheid by reversing it and by giving certain previously disadvantaged groups (Blacks, Coloureds, Indians, & Chinese who arrived before 1994) of South African citizens economic privileges previously not available to them. It includes measures such as Employment Preference, skills development, ownership, management, socioeconomic development, and preferential procurement.
Anyone familiar with the Marxist ANC, knows that this is a crock of excrement. The act, like Affirmative Action in the US, which is used to prop up blacks, Hispanics and their Jewish keepers, is simply a racial policy designed to facilitate the transfer of every last institution, created by South Africa’s founding people, to the black Marxist usurpers in charge. The BEE enables the ANC, and their local lackeys, to hire their cronies, and in doing so, exclude whites from the government they created. In spite of the propaganda scrawled on Wikipedia, Indians and mulattoes are equally discriminated against under the BEE-the reason why Indian minorities typically support White South African Nationalist candidates.
The BEE has been enacted even though it is economically destructive, at times dangerous. In the US the 5% Nation Crowd-including the likes of Obama, are calling BEE, ‘a fabulous initiative’. But what if implementing such measures wreck the country? Even if for arguments sake blacks have been discriminated against, is it worth driving a nation into financial ruin to redress wrongs perpetrated generations back? What if that ‘discrimination’ was in part due to the understanding of the realities of living in a nation with a black majority-a people with an average IQ of 80? Click here for companion piece by Jan Lamprecht.
Although South African leftists typically stand by the BEE, one top organisation, that actively campaigned against Apartheid, now claims that the BEE is inherently more dangerous “for the economic health of South Africa, than Apartheid ever was.”
Frans Cronje, scenario planner and the CEO of the South African Institute of Race Relations (SAIRR), believes Black Empowerment, is bringing about a “total collapse of South Africa’s infrastructure”. An SAIRR report on race-based affirmative action entitled “killing babies”, states that in order for South Africa to be able to compete with the Western nations it once rivalled economically, BEE must be scrapped and SA needs to be returned to its meritocratic origins.
What makes this report and SAIRR’s position significant is that many of its members actively campaigned against Apartheid. Although they never campaigned on behalf of the Slovo run Marxist ANC, several SAIRR members voiced opposition to Apartheid on ideological grounds. Why the turnaround?
They have taken issue with the racially driven element of the legislation, claiming that “black empowerment policies that have seen unqualified people appointed to positions where their incompetence has hurt poor & vulnerable communities” are a threat to our economic development and public safety.
In layman’s terms-they too realise that blacks are incapable of running our government, and are a threat to the lifeblood of this nation.
The report released this past week pointed to the deaths of three babies aged between seven and 13 months in Bloemhof in North West province last year which were deemed to have been caused by drinking contaminated tap water. Scores of other vulnerable people, predominantly black, were also hospitalised.
The report stated that,
-The Bloemhof municipality ‘lost its capacity’ to maintain the sewer plant,” the independent think-tank said in a statement quoting its Chief Executive Frans Cronje that accompanied its paper entitled “Killing Babies”.
-There is no doubt that the officials responsible for these deaths were appointed, at least in part, on grounds of race-based affirmative action and that a direct causal link therefore exists between the policy and the deaths.”
-That in all the commentary on the deaths there was no mention of affirmative action, because that would “cross the barrier of political correctness forced on our country by the ideology of race-based empowerment”.
-The governing African National Congress implemented affirmative action when it came to power 20 years ago to redress the injustices of apartheid, under which the black majority were denied access to political and economic power.
-The government’s policy had created a “very small black elite” that used the system to perpetuate its own advantage over “the masses of desperately poor people”.
The ideology was “a veil behind which to conceal corruption and incompetence.
A spokesperson for SAIRR told the EKP that he was fearful that if ANC policies weren’t changed, that SA would be “as badly off as it’s Sub Sharan neighbours within 20 years.”
Bottom line: political correctness has made it so we are acting against our instincts and self preservation. Blacks are being given a free pass to kill, rape and now discriminate against anyone lighter skinned than a piece of coal (they hate Indians, and mulattos with equal measure) by their liberal enablers and our oppressors, and we are all but silent.
Decent people are lectured ad nauseum, how in the interest of tolerance & its ugly stepsister political correctness, we are to accept things we know are morally wrong, in this instance, pragmatically destructive. What can we do to combat the misery being inflicted upon us by a people, who should be grateful to us, that HATE us?
We need to implement laws in our lands that do not dress up black racism as equality. We need to remember we built this land and have the right to control it. This can only be accomplished by STOPPING the sort of liberal degenerates that facilitate our destruction. We need to boycott firms that support liberal politicians and causes. We need to protest white liberals in the media and government, and recognise that THEY, even more than the blacks in power, are what stands between societal civility, our economic wellbeing and savagery.
And the same thing is now happening in the private sector, where more and more blacks are putting race before the good of our nation. One need look no farther than Oprah Winfrey’s Academy for Girls in Henley-on-Klip, located just south of the city of Johannesburg, where Oprah went out of her way to hire a predominantly black staff-a staff that sexually molested the school girls it was hired to care for. Oprah’s Marxist ideology not only clouded her judgment, and prevented her from looking at the statistics when hiring; it also jeopardized the lives of the children entrusted to her. Instead of hiring people that were statistically unlikely to rape her black students, she chose from a pool of people that posed a threat. Ignoring statistics and denying fact are what liberals do best, after all. 97% of the people hired by Winfrey were black. Only a few were white and none were of Asian ancestry. This is in spite of the fact that whites and Asians are the most productive members of South African society and rarely if ever rape black females. (see full report from EKP SA here)
