Hi Rotovegas, received this mail on 29th June 2007, seems somewhat true??

You call me "Whiteboy," "Famma," "Maboeroe," "Lekoa,"
"Whitey," "Settler," "White Trash" and that's OK.
But when I call you, nigger, caffir, piksteel,
houtkop, muntu, or Gook,you call me a racist.
You say that whites committed a lot of violence
against you, so why are the ghettos, townships and Africa the most
dangerous places to live?  You have bursaries for previously
disadvantaged.
                  You have Freedom Day.
                  You have Youth Day.
                  You have Thabo Mbeki.
                  You have affirmative action
                  You have Black Economic Empowerment
                  You have Employment equity.
                  You have BCM, PAC and Azapo.
                  You have people singing "kill the Boer, the famma".
If we had WET - (White Entertainment Television)
we'd be racists.  If we had a White Pride Day you would call us
racists. If we had white history month, we'd be racists.
If we had an organization for only whites to "advance" our
lives,we'd be racists or white supremacists. If we had a college fund that only gave white
students scholarships,you know we'd be racists. There are 100%
Black colleges and universities in SA, yet if there were "Afrikaans
universities" that would be a racist college.
In the Soweto March, you believed that you were
marching for your race and rights. If we marched for our race and
rights, you would call us racists.
You are proud to be black, and you're not afraid to announce it.
But when we announce our white pride, you call us
racists.  You rob us, murder us, rape us, hi-jack us, and
shoot at us. But, when a white man shoots a black man, murderer or
burglar posing a threat to society, you call him a racist.
The SA soccer team can be an ''all Black Team'' but the Springboks must be forced to have Blacks in their midst!!!
I am proud. But, you call me a racist. Why is it that only whites can be racists?
There is nothing improper about this email.
Let's see which of you are proud enough to forward it !!!!
Now that could be something to chew on???? You see, Rotovegas, you shouldn't have woken me so rudely and spoilt my nice dream. >:D

I have seen this before.  A wise old man once told me more than 20 years ago, there is no place in Africa for anyone but an African.  I always considered myself and African.  I was to young to understand, but today it makes sense.

very true.

I used to take all of that very personally on a daily basis in SA. It is sooooo amazing not to have to deal with all that anti-white ***. It is awesome to be part of a majority.

Yep Rotovegas, I am trying to just let it go as well. Although on a daily basis, I am given many a reason to dislike, hate, want to exact retribution etc. etc. The simplest way to try and handle, is to adhere to what Badprop says, Africa belongs to the Africans. As long as your skin colour is white, you will never be African. So, I just try and accept that fact and look forward to the day my family and I are HESA's and living in New Zealand. O0

I am just looking forward to everything not having to be so black or white anymore. Let's face it the current bunch running the country are probably just as bad, or worse racists as the previous lot.

It is having the effect of spurring racism on in SA. I am convinced that the racism situaion in SA is a lot worse now than it was 13 years ago. And it is not going to go away....

It is going to be great to get away from all this bolocks and be able to just concentrate on getting on with life without these stupid distractions.

It's true what Brad says, that at least here the black, white thing is not shoved in your face 24/7 :)

Living without being discriminated against is going to take some time getting used to.  But it is going to be wonderful to be accepted for who you are and not for what colour your skin is.   O0

Not being stuck in the middle is going to be great. I am tired of feeling guilty for priveledges which we may or may NOT have had in the past.
