Jimmy Manyifique…only in his own mind

I don’t expect many people outside South Africa to have heard about this racist, elitist scumbag Jimmy Manyi who is the Chairman of that exclusive club known as the Black Management Forum, but it’s not inconceivable since he is also the official ANC-government spokesperson.

When he is not defending the often absurd position of the Black Management Forum, he speaks up for the forever-ridiculous position of the South African government, more especially that of the ANC.

Recently he was castigated by all and sundry, including a Minister in his own government, for stating that the Province of the Western Cape had too many Coloured people [a racial classification in SA].

And to make matters worse, it has been revealed that he also stated that management positions in South Africa are over-represented by Indians “who bargained their way to the top.” Personally I find there’s perhaps some truth here; everyone knows how Indians love bargaining, but the racial overtones has left many people extremely displeased.

What I would like to hear from Jimmy is an acknowledgement of how the ANC-government in South Africa is over-represented with liars and thieves. Unfortunately such a confession is highly unlikely to elicit more than a few chuckles; most people who actually know what’s going on in the country already know this and those who still support this wretched government either won’t care or won’t understand.

The Most Powerful Man in the World is……Black

While watching the most significant inauguration in the history of the United States of America (possibly the world), yesterday, I realized that the most powerful man in the world is now black. It may seem like I’m making a big deal about the most powerful person in the world’s skin colour, but this observation is surely inescapable.

However, the real reason I make this racial observation is not because I myself am non-white (Indian actually); it’s just that this development contrasts with one of the most wretched men in the world, if not the most, Robert Gabriel Mugabe, self-declared President of Zimbabwe, who is also black. So we have the most powerful black man in world in the Northern Hemisphere who was voted overwhelmingy into power; and the most wretched black man in the world, in the Southern Hemisphere who stole an election, and is clinging onto power with disastrous consequences.

But that’s not all; under normal circumstances, most black governments in the world would aspire to attain the levels of honesty, morality and ethical standards demonstrated by Barack Obama, but here in South Africa it is becoming increasingly clear that most of our black government officials aspire to the wretchedness of one Robert Gabriel Mugabe. What a sad state of affairs for all black people.
