I have long maintained that if you want to leave a country (South Africa) then you should. Nothing should keep you in a country that makes you dreadfully unhappy.
What am I on about?
A WHITE South African man has been granted refugee status in Canada after an immigration board ruled that his “fear of persecution by African South Africans” was justified.
It seems as though Canada has become an enabler of the worst kind for emigration of lazy South Africans who need a quick shot out of a bad spot and their 15minutes of infamy globally. The “victim” here clearly should be leaving South Africa anyways. It seems as though he has no idea of what constitutes an “African”. In my book, it’s not a racial thing. So does Mr Brandon Huntley, 31, think he is being persecuted by every person who considers themselves African? I consider myself African. I know many a pale-face who consider themselves African too. So then, by proxy, Huntley is not being racially persecuted. He is being persecuted for other reasons.
In case you are misunderstanding my stance: I think that Huntley is flat out wrong here. I think he is using the plight of our nation’s past to further his own agenda and find an easy way in to a country that was sympathetic to his ignorant, stupid, short sighted and lazy version of “persecution”.
I would like to quote an article in The Times: “This is really not a story about whites in South Africa, but about the Canadian refugee system that is broken and the authorities will believe any story they are told.” – source
Now that’s the point right there. The point is that it is an impossibility to take the “plight” of a single white South African and generalise it to the entire racial group of a country and then say that we all are being persecuted. Let me blunt here: We are not, as a racial group, being persecuted in South Africa. Maybe some are, many might be victims of crime but crime is prevalent for every racial group in South Africa.
Furthermore I have read and heard that Huntley has not gone to the police and laid charges against anyone for any of the alleged seven racial hate-crimes committed against him. Why? What does that say about Canada and their rubbish system of granting “refugee” status? Why was the South African government not allowed to comment or do any of their own investigations in to the matter? What sort of country simply grants this sort of status without looking in to all avenues and causes and effects?
I think Canada looks stupid. I think Huntley looks stupid and I think that they both deserve one another.
