You know…I fully agree and accept that two people can go on the same holiday and experience the same things, but afterwards have two completely different stories to tell, but sometimes one of them might have an already prejudiced and biased mindset that might cloud those experiences and cause hallucinations.
Take this self-hating LWB with the piss pot hairstyle Helen Walne for instance. Apparently she is an “award winning author”, but judging from the white-hating drivel she spews, she sounds more like a high school essayist who has read too many “Towards more picturesque speech” columns in the Reader’s Digest.
She recently wrote a vitriolic piece of verbal vomit about white tourist with euros, pounds and dollars crowding Her city and Her beaches.
You can read this pathetic piece of diatribe this wannabe hippy puked out over here. Dear tourists, I love you I really do
It never stops to amaze me how LWB’s like Helen Walne, who wear Havaiana sandals and eat muesli and yogurt for breakfast, never let a moment go by to stereotype whites and take a swipe at them, but are then quick to tell others not to stereotype blacks.
When you read her bollocks you can see how she stereotypes the Dutch tourist with the camper van and anyone with a Gauteng registration number is automatically a stupid, low-class white from Brakpan.
Wrote this clown…, “when you arrive, with your euros, pounds, dollars and whatever currency they have in Brakpan, we can’t even squeeze into the local KFC, let alone get a booking for Le Major Ouef-Rip de Cabo.”
And further…,”Then there are the beaches. After a three-day hike across the city’s most challenging mountain terrain (to avoid the cars), I arrived at Muizenberg to find every patch of sand taken up by small children wearing underpants and women romantically squeezing blackheads from man-backs.”
Now let me show you a picture I took in December of the KFC at the Cape Town V&A Waterfront and show you the REAL reason nobody can get in…it certainly is not your pound, euro or dollar-bringing white tourist, is it?
|Stereotyping or the truth?|
As can be seen rows and rows of Golden Arrow busses with CA registrations bringing beachgoers from Khayelitsha. The Strand’s registration is CEY.
Why would blacks choose to go to the Strand and crowd the white and coloured beaches 30km away instead of going to their own beaches that are within walking distance of them? Is it because they know how their fellow blacks behave on the beaches? There was after all a reason why we had separate beaches during Apartheid. If we were really all the same and behaved all the same there would never have been a rationale for Apartheid at all.
Fortunately in the Strand the police and Law Enforcement officers were out in full force. Despite the many signs saying that no alcohol was allowed on the beaches, right in front of my eyes they confiscated cases of beer and bottles of whisky from black groups crowding the beach. Then they wonder why two people drowned at Melkbaai beach on that day.
Amazing to me was how these „poor blacks“ always seem to have money for expensive alcohol. The police was carrying away bottles of Glenfiddich whisky and Hennessy Cognac.
On my way to go and visit one of our regular readers in Fish Hoek, it took me three hours to get from Muizenberg to Fish Hoek. A distance of about 10km. Again…bus loads full of Khayelitsha visitors…I did not see a single white pound, euro, dollar-bringing tourist.
So I don't know which holiday period or area Helen Walne is talking about. Must be where she lives...in Cloud-Cukoo Land.
All I can say is thank God I grew up in the old South Africa in the era when we had those red and black signs that read, “Strand and see, slegs blankes”.
Fond memories. Those days you could still go to the beach and feel safe. You didn’t have to worry about your belongings being stolen whilst in the water. The beaches were clean. Now we have the New (improved) South Africa. Now it is all so much better, isn't it Helen?
