Dear Afrikaner people, we are sorry.
After reading about the Red October march yesterday and seeing some of the things angry Afrikaner people had to say, I have taken it upon myself to apologise to you for the oppression that Black people have put you through. Still on apologies, I would also like to apologise for the way we have tried to exterminate you by committing genocidal crimes against your race. How dare we?
Black people are poor and get killed in the townships daily, but you are White Afrikaner people and you deserve better. We are sorry for thinking that crime is also an issue when it affects Black people. We are sorry for thinking that Afrikaners would experience the general problem of crime like the rest of the country. Those people who live in townships that average 5 murders a week should also get over themselves and apologise to you for these genocidal murders that account for a whopping 1.8% of South Africa’s murder statistic.
We are also sorry for the economic oppression we have put you through. With the White unemployment rate at a whole 6%, how could people whose unemployment rate is over 30% not realise how much they are oppressing you? I am sorry that these Blacks do not see how oppressed you are, with all that control of the economy that you have.
How could we be so inconsiderate, to look from the comfort of our lavish RDP houses while Afrikaners suffer from their farmhouses, surrounded by the hectares of land they own? We are truly sorry for that.
His musical and political majesty Steve Hofmeyr told us that Apartheid “wasn’t bad because it gave us good schools”. We are sorry for questioning him. We apologise for being ungrateful after all that amazing Bantu education that the Apartheid government gave Black people.
Most importantly, we are sorry that we don’t understand you. We apologise for not understanding that the problem of crime targets specifically your race. I hope that one day the oppression of Whites by Blacks in this country will end, and people will no longer be scared to wave the Apartheid flag and sing Die Stem whenever they want. Sorry for everything.
