Colours of contempt

Minister of labour, Membathisi Mdladlana, is on the warpath . It got me thinking about the whole BEE thing again.
We can’t get jobs, white people say. We can’t get management positions, black people say. We are either not black enough or too black, coloured people say. Oi – can we all just get over ourselves for a minute?
Although I don’t want to make a generalised statement (yet run the risk of doing so anyway), I think everyone is too quick to jump on the victim bandwagon.
I know that there are those who’ve suffered from all quarters, yes, but at the end of it all you will get ahead if you have talent and good work ethics. Thus:
I hate it when white people whine as they’ve
a) had a good deal for a long time
b) don’t struggle to get jobs as much as they’d like us to believe
c) are resentful even when they are in jobs but in less senior positions than black/coloured people.

I hate it when black people whine because they’re
a) in a really good position to maximise opportunity.
b) act as if the world owes them something without them having to work for it.
c) talk about being underprivileged if they’ve attended the best schools and universities. They’re no less previously disadvantaged than I am.

And I hate it when coloured people whine because
a) they’re not getting jobs because they’re not black enough.
b) they’re not getting jobs because they’re not white enough.
c) they don’t want to work hard for what they have or want.
Get. Over. Yourself.

    it’s really kak when you see people bitching and moaning about these things. It just splits up an already divided nation into really small parts that no one will be able to put together.
