Bok Van Blerk New Song – Land Van Melk en Heuning

New Song of the famous Afrikaner singer Bok Van Blerk. Land of milk and Honey.

Enjoy!

Lirieke (Lyrics)

 

Elke keer as die wolke val die reën op die grond hy’t van ons geleen

Voel ‘n weer soos ‘n spook want jy staan aleen

In die land van melk en heuning                             

 

Jy weet ek sal vir jou ‘n spoorweg lyn wil bou

Wat strek van ver uit die noorde sande 

Tot in die ou karoo

 

Ek sal jou veilig hou

Maar wie kan ek vertrou

Jy weet ons kan nie so verloor nie

Dit is nie wat ek wil hoor nie

 

Elke keer as die wolke val die reën op die grond hy’t van ons geleen

Voel ‘n weer soos ‘n spook want jy staan aleen

In die land van melk en heuning

 

Jy kyk vir my maar jou oë is leeg

En jou voete staan stil

Jy moet dan beweeg

Jy is afgebreek, en nou sê my waar’s

Die land van melk en heuning

 

Daar woorde van ons gevat

En ons regte word geskenk

Daar word gedink dat wat ons oor het

Het ons gekry maar net

  

En daar was bloed voor gesweet

Gaan nou lewens ons eet

Moet ons nou stry vir ons eie mensereg

Dit word so gou vergeet

 

Elke keer as die wolke val die reën op die grond hy’t van ons geleen

Voel ‘n weer soos ‘n spook want jy staan aleen

In die land van melk en heuning

 

Jy kyk vir my maar jou oë is leeg

En jou voete staan stil

Jy moet dan beweeg

Jy is afgebreek, en nou sê my waar’s

Die land van melk en heuning

 

In die land van melk en heuning

(4x) Van die land van melk en heuning

In die land van melk en heuning

 

Elke keer as die wolke val die reën op die grond hy’t van ons geleen

Voel ‘n weer soos ‘n spook want jy staan aleen

In die land van melk en heuning

 

Jy kyk vir my maar jou oë is leeg

En jou voete staan stil

Jy moet dan beweeg

Jy is afgebreek, en nou sê my waar’s

Die land van melk en heuning

Violence and white genoice in South Africa

Since the end of Apartheid, violence is in the order on the day in the South African society. Murderers, robberies, rapes and assaults happen every day in number that are concerning. These attacks affected every people, whites, blacks, coloureds, Indians or immigrants of all sort. However we since have witness since 1994 a continued violation of the whites rights in the South African society that are completely against the forgive and forget and the rainbow nation that Nelson Mandela promise. The South African whites are not only attacked by criminals but also discriminated by laws of the same party the man that wanted to create a harmonious multicultural society. Whites pay more taxes than the blacks, are victims of the policies of quotes in certain jobs so many became unemployed and go to poverty. Returning to the main point of this text the level of crime and violence in the South African society is so high that the security is the biggest problem that South Africa faces now. South Africa is one the countries in the world with the highest crime and murderer rate and is the region leader of this sad statistics. Since the end of Apartheid more than 174 000 people were killed, the number could be even higher, and many more suffered violent crime many of them with permanent consequences. But even worse than that is the fact that around 70 000 of those victims are white which is simply disturbing knowing that in South Africa whites are only a little bit more than 9% of the population. If 70 000 victims are not much if we consider the total of the South African population, considering the 5 million whites in South Africa is really a lot and is a situation of beginning of genocide because some crimes are definitely race motivated.  All this shows besides the general violence in the South African society a situation of white genocide even more notorious within the Boer-Afrikaners specially farmers.

Since 1994 around 4000 white farmers were killed in South Africa which is 2.2% of the white farmers in the country with more than 12% been attacked in their farms.  The truth is that unlike the ANC government says the attacks on whites specially the farm attacks are not only part of the bigger picture of crime in South Africa. These attacks are perpetrated many of times by organized groups of individuals that intend to kill whites because they consider them as whites foreigners and they are considered responsible for all the problems of South Africa. And In South Africa the victims are of every races but the criminals are almost ever blacks. But the worst part is that the ANC party not only doesn’t prevent these attacks on whites as also promotes discrimination which hate speech against white people. Slogans as Kill the Boer Kill the Farmer, Maak dood die wit man or One Settler, One Bullet unfortunelly were singed or displayed by ANC members and this shows the real dimension of the problem. And with all this the international image of South Africa continue to be the one that Mandela promised and not the real South Africa were people of every races are killed every day. The genocide risk on South Africa increased to level 6 on 8 levels which shows that the South African society is a society of risk where be white is dangerous. One of the main principles of a State is to give protection for it’s citizens and the truth is that the ANC governments have failed in deliver that and so they should be punished. This is also bad to the South African economy because the Afrikaners are very productive and with the deaths of Afrikaners and the fleeing of many others to other countries as Australia because of the crime in South Africa the South African economy will start to have worst numbers than now. For example when a farmer is killed a farm take many years to recover and that is negative to South African economy because the farm is abandoned.

Why help the afrikaner people

People often question themselves about the donations that do to other people and for nations/people . This reflection makes sense because obviously we do not want our donations are routed to different things to help the people not want it to be used to buy things that they’re not food or clothing. In our opinion should not be denied to anyone help, however, we must recognize that there are people who deserve more help than others, not because they are predestined or better etc but because there are people which do not have a state where they can organize and have a state that protects them both in terms of safety and in social terms. Among the many people who find themselves in this group are the boerAfrikaners. It is true that the Boer Afrikaners are integrated in a state that is South Africa, but this state is far from protecting the Boer-Afrikaners. We see the number of Boer-Afrikaners unemployed to increase greatly due to policies such as affirmative action that harm Afrikaners even if they are competent at work, we see a number of farms  confiscated to Afrikaners to increase the number of blacks or mestizos manage farms, we see the rise over the last 20 years of violence with thousands of Afrikaners killed and seriously injured. We see the free promotion of racism by politicians like Julius Malema or Jacob Zuma with musics like”kill the bóer, kill the farmer” and other actions

Of course Afrikaners feel that they don’t belong to the South Africa and it is deliberate. The result of all this is obvious – increase of poverty and hunger among Afrikaners. It is therefore essential to help these people who are unprotected and integrated in a state that despises them. It is true that there are other people who need help, who are starving, where there are many diseases but the responsibility to help these people is from their states. Afrikaners although they are in South Africa does not have enough political representation to be heard and therefore not have a state that protects both socially and physically.

 concluding, Afrikaners are a people who are stateless and in our view the aid to the people who are stateless  should be high-priority because they don’t have nobody to protect them unlike other African peoples that despite being very poor, have a state. The action on these people should not be the direct help but seek the state to assume his duties, being less corrupt and more active socially. Regarding the Afrikaners the aid should be direct(food, clothing, job offers) because Afrikaners are treated like second-class citizens not belonging to the Sotuh African state. Boer afrikaners have their  own  identity that is very different from other people who make up the South African State.
 Again we reaffirm the necessity of a volkstaat.A state  of bóer-afrikaners is prioritizing the Afrikaner people and protect thempoor afrikaners socially and physically

Afrikaans

60468

In this post we will write about the language of the Afrikaners, and also of the South African Coloureds, the Afrikaans. It is the first language of 7.1 million of South Africans and is speak by many others. The Afrikaans is a West-Germanic language that developed from the XVII century Dutch. The Afrikaans speakers, Afrikaanssprekendes and not Afrikaners are divided into two main groups the Cape Coloured and Arikaners. It was developed by the earliest settlers in the Cape in that time under the administration of the Dutch Company of Eastern Indies. It shares much of his vocabulary with Dutch with 90 to 95% of the words being words of Dutch origin. However other languages also influenced Afrikaans some in the written form of the Afrikaans, which only became official in the XX century, and others in the spoken form of the language. The first Afrikaans evolved from the Dutch dialects of the South-West part of the Nederland’s because much of the first Afrikaners were original of that region. Despite sharing much of his vocabulary there are differences between Dutch and Afrikaans.

Tijd in Dutch become Tyd (Time) in Afrikaans. The ij in Dutch become y in Afrikaans with the exception of suffix lijk in Dutch that becomes lik in Afrikaans as in uiteindelik (Finally). The same happens is most of the Dutch surnames as in Van Wijk that becomes Van Wyk in Afrikaans.  The spelling is the same, ei, in both cases. Another difference is that in some words the z in the begin of some Dutch words passes to s in afrikaans as in Zuid – Suid (South) or zal that becomes sal. Other difference is the Dutch ch that is some cases becomes g especially in the suffix of some words. The word recht (right) in Dutch is one of these examples becoming reg in Afrikaans and the t in the end of some Dutch words also disappears.

Later French Hugenot settlers also came to the Cape Colony and became an important part of the Afrikaner people. They also influenced Afrikaans with some words and also the double negative in some phrases like in jy sal nie spel nie, meaning in English you will not play. The double negative of the Afrikaans language resembles to the French ne pas. Another language that influenced the Afrikaans was Malayan because of Malayan workers that the Dutch bring to the Cape Colony. One of the most famous words of Malayan origin is piesang which means banana. Also the Khoikoi languages of the natives influenced Afrikaans but more the Afrikaans spoke by the coloureds than the normal Afrikaans spoke by the Afrikaners. Another language that influenced the Arikaans language was Portuguese mainly because of the strong portuguese presence in Southern Africa and even with some immigrants to South Africa.  Some of the words of Portuguese origin are Kraal and evolution of the Portuguese word curral and Moveer developed from the Portuguese word mover which means to move in English and others. Also the accent of the Afrikaans varies for region to region and by people. The Coloured people around Cape Town still speak and old form of Afrikaans known as Cape Afrikaans ‘Kaapse Afrikaans’ a language that because is the first Afrikaans developed still has more Dutch words and a stronger Dutch accent than the today’s general Afrikaans . The biggest difference is the 1ºpronun which is ik as in Dutch rather than ek the standard Afrikaans word for I. Also in the general Afrikaans we see a different accent. Most of the cases people in the Western Cape speak an accent with a bigger Dutch influence and in the region of the Transvaal and the Vry Staat a deeper accent with also some German influences because many of the boers have German ancestry.

Since the end of Apartheid the Afrikaans such as the Afrikaners has been somehow marginalized by the ANC governments especially in the education were some Afrikaner schools and universities have no longed Afrikaans has the main language even in areas where the Afrikaanssprekendes are the majority of the population. Unfortunately many black South Africans still think that the Afrikaans is the oppressor language because of the fact of being the most important language during the Apartheid years something that influence the marginalization that the Afrikaans suffers now even with most of the speakers being Coloureds and not Afrikaners.

Localization of the Volkstaat

     We have previously done a text about why the idea of a Volkstaat for the Boer-Afrikaner people is a good idea and supported by the international law. Now we will write about the localization that we think is better to place the Volkstaat in the South African territory. Since the end of Apartheid and even before of it there have been many proposals of Boer-Afrikaner organizations or parties for a possible Volkstaat/Boerstaat. The Vryheidsfront proposal is a relatively remote area of the Northern Cape in which the Afrikaners can be a majority despite of the large number of coloureds, but don’t have many resources and is an area in which a part of the Boer-Afrikaner population doesn’t have almost any link. Another proposals were made in the around the town of Vryheid in the Kwazulu Natal and also in the region of the old Boer republics of the Transvaal and Oranje Vry Staat. In the case of the region around Vryheid we think that is too small to center there a Volkstaat where part of the Afrikaner population will live and will be more suitable for an Afrikaner settlement similar to Orania or Kleinfontein. In the case of building a future Volkstaat in the region of the old republics of the Transvaal and Oranje Vry Staat we think that is a region too big specially because this is not the XIX century and a Volkstaat there will lead to a massive dislocation of black people that is impossible to be done even that cities as Johannesburg or Soweto will not be part of the Volkstaat/Boerstaat.

       Our localization for the Volkstaat is from Prieska in the Eastern part of the Northern Cape province to Rustenburg in the South-East part of the North West province. The biggest cities in our proposal of Volkstaat are the following: De Aar and in the Northern Cape, Welkom and Kroonstad in the Free State and Klerksdorp Potchefstroom and Rustenburg in the North West. This region has in our opinion the best conditions for a Volkstaat because we have plenty of natural resources in the south of the North West province and also in the north of the Vry Staat. We have the two biggest South African rivers the Vaal and the Oranje rivers, that give the water needed for the population and for the agriculture that naturally will be one of the major activities in the Volkstaat making a use of the good agriculture development existing in the area and even developing it further because of the security that will be better than in the today’s South Africa where the crime is a major problem with almost 4000 farmers killed since the end of Apartheid and 70000 whites death. The region has also some industry that will be important to the development of the Volkstaat. Also in 2010 the Afrikaans newspaper Die Beeld done a survey where 56% of the Afrikaners say that support a idea of a Volkstaat and will move there if was created and a further 17% will consider it so we know that a Volkstaat is an idea with which many Afrikaners agree with and if will be made in the right region could attract many Afrikaners to it.  Our proposal of Volkstaat also includes the enclave of Orania which is a very important place for the Afrikaners because it is a bastion for the Boer-Afrikaner culture and a well developed place economically and socially that could serve as an example for the rest of the Volkstaat/Boerstaat.  We have also some doubts about some of the cities that could or not be in the Volkstaat  in border regions of the state. Lichtenburg and Kimberley will be cities that we need more time to decide if worth or not be our proposal of Volkstaat. In terms of the kind of autonomy that the state will have we think that the more achievable solution is an autonomous region rather than a full independent one because it a more viable solution. The Afrikaners now, will not have all the means to create a state and if the Volkstaat became independent probably many international voices of protest will be hear because many people still think that post Apartheid South Africa is the rainbow nation that Nelson Mandela promised and a fully independent Boer-Afrikaner state could still be linked with Apartheid regime even if wasn’t anything like that.

Racism claims in correctional services

Cape Town – Ten correctional service employees have taken the department to the Labour Court, claiming that they have been overlooked for promotions because they are not black.

Pieter Davids, a senior correctional services official told eNCA that white men had no chance of being promoted of the next five years in the department.

According to Davids, who is one of the complainants, the national Employment Equity plan discriminates against white and coloured South Africans.

He describes himself as one of the department’s top achievers, and has applied for a promotion on more than one occasion, much like other complainants.

However, due to correctional services’s affirmative action plan, a black candidate was chosen.

Davids turned to labour mediation body the CCMA but was unsuccessful and conceded that certain groups were disadvantaged under apartheid.

During cross-examination, Advocate Dumisa Ntsebeza pointed out that it was inevitable that previously advantaged South Africans would suffer under the current Employment Equity plan even if they are qualified for the job.

He said it was not fair to say that white men would never be promoted, as the current guidelines would be revised in 2014.

Meanwhile, the correctional services employees involved in the case were worried they’d be persecuted.

Commentary

Imagem

    This news gives us another example of the discrimination that the whites in South Africa and even people of other groups as the Coloureds suffer in South Africa. Once again the black empowerment politics prove to be racist for who is not black, just as in the case of the first post of this blog, the South African Airways case. We don’t understand why the complainers are not treated the same way and don’t have the same opportunities to develop there careers as the black guards, but this ANC government doesn’t care about the work or the qualifications of a person, this government only cares about the race and in giving the most jobs they can to blacks even if that means sacrificing people of other races that could have more abilities. These policies will only led to more incompetence, more corruption which is prejudicial to the development of the South African society and that we could already see today. But what is incredible is that even with the Black Empowerment Policies the unemployment rate in South Africa is very high and the blacks unemployment rate is still the largest, with the whites unemployment rate getting bigger year after year and throwing many whites into poverty. Is a discrimination to overlook certain people for a certain job just because they are not of a certain race, in today’s South Africa that means, that if you are not black you will have more difficulties in getting a job. If during the Apartheid the whites had better chances to get a job than people from other races and the all world protested, this case should not past without anything being modified and until putting an end to the discriminatory Affirmative Action policies, we should protest. We know that many of the highest earning jobs are still in the hands of whites in a manner that is not proportional to the South African race distribution but if we consider the distribution of jobs per race during Apartheid regime is normal that differences still exist today. And we should not put apart people of other races for certain jobs in detriment of black people even in the cases in which the whites, coloureds or indians have more qualifications to that job than blacks. The way to solve this is developing more the public education and formation for all the people giving a chance that the jobs are given to the best in each area. Also with an increased public and private investment more opportunities of work will be given to more people and then the unemployment rate will decrease for every racial group in South Africa.
