    Racism In South Africa 

    Just opened 9gag to see what’s the latest on the news.
    And what do I see?
    3 articles about 3 different hate-crimes in South Africa.

    Why is the rest of the world not talking about this?
    Why is this not the center of all discussions on the internet right now?

    Well, I’ll tell you why.
    I was born in Africa. I grew up there.
    I know the land. I know the people. I know the culture.
    And I’ve talked about this in one of my articles.
    Racism is normal in Africa.
    Just like in Asia.
    If you’ve lived in Asia, you know how racism works.
    And if you’ve lived in Africa, you know exactly how racism works.

    So how does racism work in Africa?
    Oh I’ll tell you how!
    First of all, every country in Africa has dozens of different tribes. Different tribes do not see eye-to-eye with one another.
    The hatred between the tribes is so prevalent, that there have been multiple genocides in Africa. Hello Rwanda, Burundi, Sudan, Uganda, DRC!

    And then come the Arabs, Indians, Chinese, and Caucasians.
    The Arabs have a reputation for not playing around when it comes to handling troublemakers. So for the most part, they’re left alone.
    The Indians, Chinese and white folks bear the brunt of racism in Africa.

    You can go around and ask any Indian, Chinese or white guy if they have been victims of racism by the local Africans, and the general consensus will be a sound Yes.

    Now, are all Africans racist?
    Just like every other continent, you’ll find some racist folks, and some lovely folks.

    But things have been changing.
    During the last two decades, there has been a huge shift in the quality of life in Africa.
    And many foreigners who were born in Africa and grew up in Africa have been leaving the continent.
    When I say foreigners in this context, I mean people from other continents who came and settled down in Africa during or after the colonial period.
    The fact is, they are citizens of the various countries in Africa. Both by birth and by law.
    But they’re not treated as such by the native population.
    They are treated as foreigners or invaders. People who came from other continents to steal their privileges and good opportunities.
    Much of the racism stems from this alone.
    And I understand it.

    A large population in Africa is very poor.
    So when the local populace see the Indians and Chinese and Caucasians living comparatively wonderful lives, they feel like they’ve been robbed of what is rightfully theirs.
    The Idi Amin saga in Uganda is a prime example of this.

    You can see the inequality in the job opportunities, work culture and nepotism in the continent.
    The majority of white collar jobs are taken by Indians, Chinese and white folks. Let me put it this way: If you see an Asian or Caucasian, he probably has a white collar job.
    Blue color jobs, pink color jobs, red color jobs and brown color jobs are all taken by the local Africans.

    When you’ve lived there, you can understand why some Africans may hate foreigners living in their countries.
    There is no equal opportunity.
    While the majority of the local Africans go to government schools, the Asians and Whites study in expensive private schools.
    While the majority of Africans will start working immediately after high school, most of the Asians and Whites will go to universities abroad.

    You’ll never find an Asian or Caucasian living in a slum.
    It’s always the underprivileged local Africans who live in tin huts, do drugs, commit crime and dream about modest lives.

    The large portion of white collar crimes committed by Asians and Caucasians go undetected.
    Blue collar crimes and pink collar crimes are often committed by the local Africans.
    These are often out of desperation because they rarely have an alternative. Working regular jobs doesn’t pay much so they resort to crime to continue their livelihood.

    It is a sad situation.
    Considering all the hard-working individuals who never make it big in life.

    Corruption is rampant in Africa.
    You can’t get any work done within the system without paying bribes.
    The governments are wholeheartedly corrupt. And the people who suffer the most are the local Africans who don’t have money to pay bribes. As a result, they’re often mistreated and abused.

    Over the past decade, there has been a rise in violent crimes committed against white farmers in South Africa.
    Things are getting out of hand.
    While the blacks may be eager to kick out the whites, they don’t seem to be adequately prepared to take over the farms.
    A little history lesson can be learned from Zimbabwe.
    Does South African want currency bills of 1,000,000 Rand?

    Overall, I think the African continent has been going downhill since I was born.
    And it’s generally been the same for every other continent and country in the world.
    I just don’t see any improvement anywhere anymore.
    I think the peak development was achieved in the early 2000’s. And ever since then, it’s been a gradual decline.

    Anyway, there’s my thoughts on the racism problem in Africa. It’s never going away. Even if all the “foreigners” were kicked out, the problem would still continue with the infighting among the local ethnic groups.
    And the same applies to Asia. Look at the Middle East, look at India, look at China. Do you think racism will ever cease to exist in these regions?
    Europe and America has made remarkable progress in this regard. But with all the political correctness and sensitive people flocking the internet nowadays, I think those continents have reached peak equality. Anything going forward will only result in a decline.

    I see progress in this regard like a sine wave. When you’ve reached the peak of the curve, it has to go down again.
    Progress is not exponential or infinite.
    That’s just the reality of the material world.
    Under illusion, we may think we’re making progress, but we’re actually moving backwards.

    That’s an interesting phenomenon.
    I’ve watched old historical footage of Europe before the World War and after the World War.
    The cities back then were more beautiful than what they are now.
    The people were also dressed in a more sophisticated fashion than they are now.
    And I guess you can compare many countries and actually see how there has been a decline in the quality of life. India, Iran, Uganda, just to name a few.
    If you can find the footage of these countries from the 1930’s through 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, and compare to what these countries look like today, you’ll notice the stack difference. And it doesn’t look like progress at all.

    Here’s a thought that just crossed my mind.
    Racism existed in the Old Testament and the New Testament.
    If God wanted everyone to live as equals, why did he divide mankind into different races and ethnic groups?
    Interesting question for the theists.
    Okay. I’m just blabbering on now.

    Stop rassisme in Suid-Afrika!

    Employment: Inside The Hiring Process 

    After my hopeless endeavors to land a job in a reputable company, I decided to find out what the deal was with all these companies and their hiring processes. Why didn’t I land a single interview?

    I got a job in Human Resources Outsourcing. It didn’t have much to do with my area of expertise. But I took it.

    LinkedIn doesn’t get you a job. It simply showcases your profile and achievements. In most cases, hiring agencies won’t be able to view your profile details without a premium account. You’re showcasing your profile to a very limited number of people, most of whom probably don’t matter. If you’re wondering why you’ve never received a job offer through LinkedIn, this is why. LinkedIn wants money just for people to view your profile and/or contact you.

    The other major players are Monster, Indeed, CareerBuilder, ZipRecruiter and Dice. Once you create a profile on these websites, they stay there forever. If you delete your profile, it still remains in their database indefinitely. And these companies share that data with each other and any other companies that will pay them for that data. Usually, companies will pay these websites for premium account access. While the data is supposed to be viewed only and used as required, other companies are known to siphon off the data and create their own databases. So you may sign up on one website, but don’t be surprised to find your profile on multiple databases owned by unknown third parties.

    Your data is shared with marketers, advertisers, partners, affiliates and law enforcement. Just read the privacy policies on these websites.

    Any company that hires you as a subcontractor is taking a big cut off of what could potentially be your salary. The subcontractors with the lowest salary gets the job. So, you may go for the interview along with a dozen others, but only the one with the lowest salary will get the job. If you ask for too much, the company loses money. But if you take whatever they give you, then you lose some money.

    The hiring process may be racist in the the US, Canada and Europe. You may not get a job simply because of your skin color, regardless of your expertise.

    The hiring process is also sexist and gender-biased. There are jobs for men and there are jobs for women. The job title should tell you that.

    The majority of profiles in North America consists of white people and Asians. I came across very few profiles of Black Americans.

    The majority of people aren’t happy with their jobs. They’re constantly looking out for offers and will go with whoever pays them more.

    Companies don’t hire people with frequent stints in their resumes. Nor do they hire people with gaps longer than 6 months in their resumes, regardless of how skilled they are.

    If you’ve held a job for longer than 2 years, the only jobs you should be interested in are full-time permanent jobs. Don’t ruin your resume with small contracts.

    There’s a lack of transparency from companies. I always wondered if the money was enough for people if there was no trust between the companies and the employees.

    There’s a lot of lies involved from the employer’s end. So much so that lying is a prerequisite for most jobs out there. If you can’t tell a lie, don’t even apply. And if you can’t live with lies, then you’ll have to quit just like I did. I never knew how cruel the corporate world was until I saw it happen before my own eyes. Corporations are money-grubbing sumbitches. There’s no other way to put it. There is no trust, no humanity and no compassion in the picture. It’s all about the money. And if you want to last in the picture for long enough, you’ll have to be one lying cruel sadistic bastard.

    When I look at most people wearing suits, flying business class and giving presentations, I always wonder what kind of monsters lie beneath the surface.

    Cancel Culture: The Pusillanimous Generation 

    I’ve lived my life by the rule that I don’t care what anyone says or thinks about me, either online or offline.

    I rejected society and it’s norms when I was still a teenager. As I grew older, my opinions of society and people in general only solidified to become facts.

    I don’t like people; well, most people. I like very few people, and it’s usually because of their personality and character. I don’t like people just because everybody else likes them. And I don’t like people just because I’m told they’re “nice”. I don’t like people just because they’re family.

    If you want me to like you and respect you, then you have to earn it as an individual. And by earn it, I mean you have to prove that you’re worthy of my love and respect. Tell me about yourself. Tell me about your lifestyle and your principles. Show me you’re not just another brainlet who thinks what others want him to think, and who says what others want him to say. Prove to me that you’re an intelligent human being who knows his self-worth, and who doesn’t chase after recognition from others.

    The recent years have seen a spike in online cancel culture. It basically consists of a bunch of idiots hating someone because of what they did, regardless of how long it’s been, be it even decades ago.

    I believe people grow mentally over the years. They learn new things, they gain new information, they analyze more data, they have new realizations. Their behavior and attitudes change; they become more refined.

    When I was young, I was a very vocal person. I spoke my mind. I didn’t have any filters. And that didn’t change – it became more refined. Before I passed my judgement or opinion on something or someone, I spent more time analyzing it. I didn’t want to be wrong; but, if I was wrong, I didn’t want to look like a complete idiot.

    That’s just my personality. I will not hesitate in telling you exactly what I think. l’m an outspoken person. And I like it. I also tend to associate more with outspoken people. So when I meet some secretive people, or FAKE people – people who hide their real thoughts and feelings, and who lie to you about everything, then I tend to avoid them and ignore them.

    Fake people don’t exist to me. They’re as good as dead. If you are a fake person who likes to lie and pretend, then you’re nonexistent to me. You can get out and stay gone.

    Since the beginning of this decade, I’ve seen a lot of fake people. Ideally, these are pretentious scumbags who hide behind popular opinions to gain mass popularity. They don’t mean what they really say. It’s very typical of them to switch sides based on the waves of opinions. They’re very likely to be backstabbers, so if you trust them, then you deserve that knife in your spine. They’re most likely to be Gen X.

    Then there’s the brainless zombies who do not have any real opinions of their own, and everything they say is simply parrot-talk. They’re most likely to be millennials and mentally-malnourished tots from the 00’s.

    The cancel culture has been led by a bunch of losers and envious nobodies who want everyone else to be as miserable as they are. And why are they miserable? They’re miserable because they’re losers and nobodies and they want everyone else to be as miserable as them. And the only way they can do that is by fault-finding and scraping out things that people said decades ago, put it out in public and demand the said people to be hated and despised to oblivion.

    A typical characteristic of a cancel moron is that they have delicate feelings and get offended by everything. Crack a joke – they’re offended. State your opinion – they’re offended. Point out the facts – they’re offended. It’s no wonder that such people become the butt of many pranks and jokes. No matter what you do or say, they’re very likely to be offended. So, there are some people, who might as well offend them.

    Accompanying the cancel culture have been waves of apologies from lots of celebrities and social media stars. Everybody wants to apologize for what they said regardless of the context and time lapse. Everybody is saying how sorry they are, and going out of their way to do ridiculous things just to prove that they’re sorry. I mean, if you’re sorry, I understand that. But why are you bending over and kissing feet just to prove that you’re sorry?

    What a bunch of pussies!

    I grew up in Africa. I spent my childhood being bullied by little African kids who called me all sorts of names and made fun of me because of my race and skin color. A lot of it was just a harmless thing that kids in Africa do. I wasn’t really offended back then. I’m not offended now. I’m not going to go hunting for them on social media right now and call them out for being racists. Truth be told, I’m pretty sure many of them still hold their racist sentiments. It may not always be malicious, but that’s just part of the culture. And there’s nothing I can do but move on. Even if I could do something, I would still choose to move on. Because I wasn’t raised to be a pussy ass bitch who spent their whole life crying about some stupid crap.

    I’d like to conclude by pointing out the case of Jenna Marbles, a popular YouTuber who just published a video apologizing for comedy skits that included dressing up and talking like Nicki Minaj and rapping about the Chinese. Throughout the video, she looked like she was barely holding back tears, trying not to cry on camera while apologizing for her old content on YouTube.

    I watched the video and I thought, why is she doing that? Why is she apologizing for a bunch of comedy skits that were made purely for entertainment purposes a decade ago? And why does she look like she’s about to start sobbing? Do people not understand the context of her videos? Oh! I almost forgot! It’s the cancel morons at work. Good job canceling Jenna Marbles and making her feel like crap.

    I stopped watching Jenna Marbles soon after she stopped making funny comedy skits and started doing more PG-rated stuff for her videos. There’s no doubt that she was growing and evolving as a person. And while dozens of new and old YouTubers meddled in controversies after controversies, Jenna Marbles managed to stay out of that cesspool. Until the cancel morons came along.

    Speaking from my own experience, apologizing for anything doesn’t work anymore. It only convinces others that you were wrong and you’re a terrible human being, even if you’re not. In essence, admitting to your mistakes and guilt now makes you a bad person. This is how the world has evolved to become. All thanks to the cancel culture, the fake pretenders, and the apologetic zombies. So while I will state the facts, admit my mistakes and apologize for them, I will not cry and weep and stop doing what I love. I just move on and ignore all the pussies whining about my past. You can cancel Jenna Marbles alright. But you can’t cancel me. I’m a different breed altogether.
