Nobody appreciates liberals who try to "help"
28th of January 2014
Many liberals come to South Africa to help blacks and eventually leave desponded, even as converted racists. The reasons are many, but basically the barbaric traditional or cultural practices of the blacks are what cause it. Another one is the way blacks respond to the “help” from these liberals. They don’t want it.
Take Dutch doctor, Dingeman Rijken for instance. He has worked amongst the Xhosas and has seen hundreds of botched circumcisions, willies rotting off and young boys dying from these horrific male genital mutilations.
He has set up a graphic website exposing these practices.
Graphic circumcision website irks critics
Be warned. It is not for the faint of heart.
The dear doctor just wants to help. He even offers “solutions”…all of which is not appreciated by the locals.
Traditional leaders and cultural commentators want the website shut down.
The doctor is making several mistakes. This practice of Ulwaluko is a secret ritual and Xhosa men do not take kindly to this being exposed, especially not to women.
The ANC got flak from their own supporters in Khayelitsha in the Cape, because they used the picture of a Xhosa boy initiate on an election poster. They see it as disrespectful and the ANC exploiting Xhosa culture.
ANC initiation poster stirs ire
Doctor Rijken might honestly believe that he is doing something good, but the people he is trying to “help” hates him for it and wants his “help” shut down.
His solution that medical practitioners should do the circumcision speaks of a lack of understanding of Xhosa culture. If the boy goes to a western style hospital, he won’t be considered initiated and therefore not a “man”.
No western trained doctor, even if he is black and circumcised himself, may perform a traditional circumcision. The boy will not be considered a “man”.
Liberals think their “superior” Western education could “help” blacks who believe in traditional medicine and practices. Blacks do not want their help. They do not want liberals to interfere.
The REAL solution is to let them be. Do not interfere with their culture. Do not try to “help”. Accept them for who and what they are. Leave them alone. Simply have nothing to do with them.
