More than 50 million people throughout the world have been forced to flee their homes. There are more than 13 million refugees worldwide. The United Kingdom currently has 149,799 refugees, which is calculated to 0.24% of the total population.
Many, including myself have made the United Kingdom home. Despite cultural, race and creed – I am a British Citizen. Born and bred in South Africa but I’m still British and to those born within the United Kingdom has to also acknowledge that I’m British and a subject of the Queen. However this is not so in South Africa for I’m within a pecking order as a secondary citizen because being Black matters – it’s called, “Black Economic Empowerment”.
When an asylum seeker is granted status to remain and later is issued with a passport of citizenship. One is able to see this Great Britain welcome its subjects as British. Now, whether the locals like it or not, the Rule of Law dictates the attitude to which all citizens are to respect and tolerate.
We have seen in recent months of the Xenophobic attacks in South Africa as they burnt fellow Africans for being foreigners. If the Leaders of the country who rob, plunder its resources and make a mockery of its legal system – how do the authorities expect the citizens to conduct themselves?
Despite the United Kingdom’s failures and faults – I feel safe and protected (not by the government, the police nor securities) for it is the Rule of Law/ and clearly delineated within the Magna Carta which instructs that even the King is not higher than the Laws of the United Kingdom.
What is the Rule of Law?
The rule of law is the legal principle that law should govern a nation, as opposed to being governed by arbitrary decisions of individual government officials.
Yet the leaders have time to continue writing absurd policies…just maybe South Africa should rename Parliament, “The Rainbow Circus,” the show is entertaining but the crowds are getting bored with your simple magic tricks. We all want to see you make the Country disappear!
It’s tough being a racist in the 21st Century and will be even more difficult as we progress to a secular progressive world. Gone are the days where racists’ names and identities of people groups are marginalised and insults where for public entertainment.
As I look at my country of birth, South Africa. I can’t help but to sympathise with the narrow “traditional bigoted” policy makers. Policies that direct a country’s economic growth based upon race. I believe many Black, Indian and even the South African Coloured are as or even more racist than the White oppressors.
The irony in all this is that the educated profession, born within the last forty years are inter-marrying. It will be a joke as these policies become obsolete as White marries Black and Black marries Indians, etc. What good would Black Economic Empowerment (BEE) Policy serve?
I will tell you… we will use your (BEE) for growing even more wealth. As our kids will be all registered “Black” with natives names. This dying breed of politicians is the Jurassic Age; it is only a matter of time until their era is entirely wiped out.
Let me tell you of the “man of the future” they will be of a mixed race. Now whether this sits well with our fascists in society today it’s tough – as those who are living in the real world are enjoying the diversity.
…go ahead make a law that gives percentages based upon your “blackness or whiteness” to claiming a level playing field – whilst the White farmers are being butchered, the traditional rural tribesman is yet without basic services and an entire country has a third-world infrastructure built by the “White-man”.
Yet the leaders have time to continue writing absurd policies…just maybe South Africa should rename Parliament, “The Rainbow Circus,” the show is entertaining but the crowds are getting bored with your simple magic tricks.
We all want to see you making yourselves disappear …and not our Country!
