Apartheid: 'They did not oppress us!'
Over decades a completely distorted picture of the actual situation in South Africa has been presented to the world by the media and activists.
The images of police violence and the blatantly racist apartheid laws of the 50s to the early 70s (whites only public amenities, beaches, hotels etc.) were portrayed as telling the full story. The fact that 90% + of people of colour were treated with respect and kindness by the average white South African never made the news, was kept hidden from the world. The fact that those petty Apartheid laws had mostly been repealed by the early 70s and remaining ones like pass-laws were gradually being phased out throughout the late 70s and 80s was not widely reported.
It is therefore indeed the simple truth that this black man speaks during the last decade of Apartheid, black people were not oppressed in South Africa. The only remaining issue was the lack of political rights for people of colour. It is not surprising though that the ANC was elected to government with a landslide victory black people outnumbered the rest by 10 to 1, and were promised good houses, electricity, jobs and wealth... All false promises!
With the doctrine of liberation before education during the 80s they encouraged violence, i.e. killing of other black people (15 000 from 1990 1994, compared with 5 000 during the preceding 40 years of Apartheid) and destruction of property schools, libraries, community centres etc. This led to conflict with police, who were trying to restore order and protect property. These scenes of violence were then broadcast across the world, creating the impression that black people were being oppressed by a police state.
It never made the news that most black people, particularly in their homelands, were living in peace, and just wanted to get on with their lives and make a living. Something this man obviously is finding more difficult now under black rule. This is likely to get worse with the current infrastructure collapse in the countrys electricity supply, health care system and police.
These are precisely the things that had happened before in the rest of Africa, and this knowledge contributed to the white peoples wish to retain political power in South Africa, remaining in control of its infrastructure - very advanced compared with the rest of Africa. - [Extract sourced from: MasakhaneSA]
