Let's forgive and don't forget

I have tried so hard to be understanding and patriotic, but it looks like blacks and whites in this country are like oil and water. Why are we so divided?... take a case of Robert McBride… dodgy character though, some blacks think he is a struggle hero blu blu blu on the other hand some whites think he is a criminal that deserve to rot in jail. What caught my attention is how some whites keep on bring in Magoos bar Bombing every time McBride is involved in his shady dealings like gun running and of late the accident cover up in . It looks like white South Africans will never forgive that man yet we are expected to forgive whites for killing our brothers and sisters and oppressing us. They manipulate the situation by playing victim hood yet we can see who is the real victim...for how long will this go on. Why don’t we judge the man according to what he has done not what he did during the struggle? We all have gruesome stories to tell.

Ironically the guys who helped McBride escape the scene of that accident are treated as heroes because they are bringing enemy number one to Book. Maybe just maybe there is third force. All we hear is that innocent people died in Magoos Bar, how innocent were those people? Personally I am not sure if there were innocent whites, I know I might be wrong. They sucked our blood yet we forgive them…. I did long time ago. There was no national party in their private homes where they called our mothers their girls and our fathers’ garden boys and some of them still use those terms toady … that illustrates that they were all part of the system. I wish they can drop this victim hood and build South Africa.

All the people of this country are victims of the Nats and apartheid in one way or another.

But I'm with you. Lets focus on those who are willing to move forward and live for the here and now and what can be.

My teenage son just gave me the best quote: "Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it" (Churchill).One would hope that all South Africans have learnt from history that its time oil and water learnt to mix!

I can't agree with you more beenz, I wish we can all stop moaning about the past and focus on the problems at hand we have that ability as South Africans black and White.

I agree with you on this one, bru. White people must wake up and stop thinking they're victims just because their privileged status has ended.
