I RESPECT Black People and I Just HATE Their Ways

I was going about my daily routine when I stumbled across this horrific update on my Twitter timeline; I respect black people and I just hate their ways. I couldn’t contain myself and posed a question; is it really possible to HATE and RESPECT someone at the same damn time?

I felt annoyed and the fire spiraling inside me was slowly exceeding the boiling point. I really needed to understand the possible odds of hating somebody but possessing, at the same level, the needed composure that can enable you to respect them.

The question that followed in my mind was; what is a ‘black way’? Which pathways can solely remain the property of the black people? How come these tracks have precisely remained to the black community? What constituents of these ‘ways’ deprive them the might to crossover to other race groups?

I was disturbed and flabbergasted at the same time, bearing in mind that this sentence was the art work of a person from the so called ‘coloured’ nation, a minority tribe in the South African country, which one way or the other, most of its people if not all, have a pure black-African gene in their DNA constituents.

Hate, if my understanding served me the right dish, is a deep or an intense dislike towards an individual, entities objects and so forth. So, how possible is it to deeply dislike the ways of someone whilst giving them your utmost respect (positive feeling of esteem)?

Being the rural, old-fashioned individual that I am, I would like, in all forms of comprehension available, to understand the likelihood of applying and maybe expressing both respect and hate towards a person at the same life, time and context.

I could be ignorant and chances are, I would contest not anybody who can call me that. However, in my own little, almost non existing world, I do not for a millisecond believe that hate and respect can be extended for a person at the same time. I strongly believe that if one hates the things you do, the odds of that person respecting you, if in existence, are highly negligible.

Truth be told: I’ve had it with the non black skinned people and their constant acts of hiding away from the fact that they don’t like the rise and increase of the black nation in their vicinity. Henceforth they are in rival with the world in all aspects and thus feel the need to prove their now endangered superordinate over their black co-equals who are anything but inferior.

I really think we need to be transparent with ourselves, if it happens by any chance, that you’re not fond of black people to a degree so great it bears hate, then just come out with it and immediately after that find a nice little hole where you won’t find a black soul and live in peace with yourself.

Relocating to a location with non-black people can do so much for your life, other than constantly striving to provoke disconsolation and inferiority to the black community which is at this day highly goal orientated and ambition driven.

I think we’ve reached a state where we can accept if you say; ‘I’m non-black and I’m racist’ and or maybe in the name of being subtle admit that you ‘deeply admire and believe in the practices of tribalism’. We will ignore you and move on. After all, we’re tearing down the walls of inferiority that bounded our forefathers. And we also understand that most of you are not hundred percent comfortable with that.

Oh and by the way, in all your practices of avoiding the fact that you’re racist, please spare me the ‘I have black friends’ ridiculous sentence and just admit that you’re racist.

No Empathy for Culprits

Any nation’s status quo should involve anything but the detriment of its people. Each nation is obliged, regardless of its financial or political state, to encompass constituents which favour the development and growth of its people. However, this is untrue for many nations as abuse, a human deteriorating aspect, is predominant in societies.

Looking at the exponentially growing rate at which abuse cases, notably rape cases are pressed and withdrawn in South Africa, a country perceived as a pacemaker and a refuge for a number of it’s African counterparts, one’s mind is propelled into fore-seeing a disorientated female brain and a disconsolate future in the fight against women and child abuse.

This year alone, I have witnessed more than three rape cases that were pressed and withdrawn at the drop of a hat without elucidation, leaving my concerned self in an inanimate and convoluted state.

Rape is an extremely disturbing form of abuse that any human being can ever encounter, it results in enormous psychological disturbances. Rape utterly discombobulates the livelihood of the victim to an extent of severe depression.

I therefore fail dismally in understanding a case of a negotiation or agreement between the victim and the offender of this traumatic, agonising act. I truthfully believe that no amount of settlement can brainwash the mental wounds mounted through this vicious act in the victims mind. Neither is there any form of consensus capable to diminish the physical trauma encountered.

According to me, pressing charges only to withdraw them before the proceeding of the case is a humorless laughter to victims of rape whose offenders walk on unbounded. It is anguish to their tainted souls which cry out for mercy each day.

I wholeheartedly understand that there is no prison with the capabilities to bring back the pieces the offender unknowingly took away, however, justice brings fourth hope of a better future to a victim’s fractured soul. This is the kind of hope which can assist a victim in rebuilding a life that has been villainously wrenched.

Henceforth, being easily amenable is not wise when you want justice to be served. Rape victim I urge you to stand firm in combating further and or the repetition of molestation. Rape offenders belong in a prison cell and it is our civil duty as a nation to certify that no assaulter loiters freely amongst us.
