Commentary -- TO THE BLACK MAN FROM THE WHITE MAN:

We apologize for giving you doctors and free medical care, as a result of which you have been able to survive plagues and catastrophes and grow in numbers;

We apologize for teaching you to read and write, and for building you thousands of schools which we have repaired after you vandalized them and burned them down, After all, if you could not read how could you have learned the words of Karl Marx, Mao Tse_tung, and others who taught you how evil we are and how oppressed you are?

We apologize for building factories and highways and buildings that gave you employment;

We apologize for developing farms which to this day feed the bulk of Africa;

We apologize for providing you with warm clothing made of fabric instead of leaving you wearing the animal skins which you wore before our arrival;

We apologize for taking minerals from the earth which you neither used, nor wanted, nor even knew were there;

We apologize for those among us who have established welfare organizations and have devoted their entire life towards making life richer and better for your people;

We apologize that we have built roads and railroad tracks between towns and cities which you now use every day without thinking;

We apologize for paying the lion's share of taxation while spending less on ourselves than on you;

We apologize for giving you law and order and a strong central government which prevented your own warrior nations like the Zulu and the Matabele from slaughtering black people by the hundreds of thousands as they did year in and year out before we came;

We apologize for teaching you the English language which has opened to you the entire world of European thought, culture, and commerce;

For all these sins we humbly beg forgiveness, and if you will only accept our apology we will be happy to take back all of the above evil and horrible things we have done to you and return to our European homeland.

That's foolish. Africa was Black Man's land and maybe they could be happier if nobody invaded their land wearing the mask of civilization exporters. If they were happy as he say just slaughtering each other, why just don't let them do it? You're complaining about invasion and you give invasion a positive value at the same time?

Why he's trying to defend the merchantilistic society who invaded Africa to exploit resource and reduce people in slavery? Colonization had nothing to do with racial preservation but only with greed and hypocrisy, and I wonder how you can defend things you say to hate.

South Africa actually quite sparsely populated by the bantus before the dutch settlers came. most of the blacks in south africa aren't actually native to south africa, but the result of waves of massive immigration of africans from other areas to english and dutch held lands due to high economic opportunities. indeed, the dutch settlers built farms, factories, mines, and other industries which the economic, social, and sanitary conditions were better than elsewhere for blacks. even madison grant states that in the hundred years since white arrival, black population in south africa increased as much as ten-fold.

Yes. And how do they pay us back?

1. More than 4 million jobs less since 1994.(With an increase in both in workhours and average of 30% less wages than in 1992)

2. 70% more blacks under the breadline.

3. Crime so dangerous, its safer for a US soldier in Iraq. (Statistics SA)

4. A totally ineffective army and defence force, crippled by lack of discipline and HIV/AIDS.

The list goes on...
