We are sorry that our ancestors were intelligent, advanced and daring
enough to explore the wild oceans to discover new countries and
develop them.
We are sorry that those who came before us took you out of the bush
and taught you that there was more to life than beating drums, killing
each other and chasing animals with sticks and stones.
We are sorry that they planned, funded and developed roads, towns,
mines, factories, airports and harbours, all of which you now claim to
be your long deprived inheritance giving you every right to change and
rename these at your discretion.
We are sorry that our parents taught us the value of small but strong families,

to not breed like rabbits and end up as underfed, diseased,
illiterate shack dwellers living in poverty.
We are sorry that when the evil apartheid government provided you with schools,

you decided they’d look better without windows or in piles of ashes.

We happily gave up those bad days of getting spanked in our all white schools for

doing something wrong and much prefer these days of freedom where problems

can be resolved with knives and guns.
We are sorry that it is hard to shake off the bitterness of the past when you keep on

raping, torturing and killing our friends and family members, and then hide behind the

fence of "human rights" with smiles on your faces.
We are sorry that we do not trust the government. We have no reason to be so

suspicious because none of these poor hard working intellectuals have ever been

involved in any form of corruption or "irregularities".

We are sorry that we do not trust the police force and, even though they have openly

admitted that they have lost the war against crime and criminals, we should not be

negative and just ignore their corruption and carry on hoping for the best.
We are sorry that it is more important to you to have players of colour in our national

teams than winning games and promoting patriotism. We know that sponsorship doesn’t

depend on a team’s success.
We are sorry that our border posts have been flung open and now left

you competing for jobs against illegal immigrants from our beautiful
neighbouring countries. All of them countries that have grown into economic

powerhouses after kicking out the "settlers".
We are sorry that we don’t believe in witchcraft, beetroot and garlic

cures for AIDS, urinating on street corners, virginity testing, slaughtering of bulls in our

back yards, trading women for cattle and other barbaric practices.

Maybe we just grew up differently.


We are sorry that your medical care, water supplies, roads, railways
and electricity supplies are going down the toilet because skilled people who

could have planned for and resolved these issues had to be shoved away because

they were of the wrong ethnic background and now have to work in foreign countries

where their skills are more needed.


We are so sorry that we’d like this country to fulfil its potential so we can once again

be proud white africans.



  1. and i am sorry because i don\’t believe raping new born babies is a cure for AIDS.

  2. I\’m sorry the world has an abundance of angry, ignorant, greedy, bitter, selfish people of all colors from all countries.

  3. Good Morning Laird and thank you for posting this very accurate depiction of the current situation in S.A. An interesting comment in relation to this matter was sent to me by a Mauritian friend who correlates similarities with Madagascar where the ‘natives’ kicked the French out and like the various states of Africa, all systems began to fail and now the cant even feed their people. And as he went on to say…there are those who are born to lead and those who are born to follow. Followers should never assume the role of leaders…..take care and enjoy your day.

  4. Points well made – some of us listen and understand and know it to be true – unfortunately there are others who do not and cover criminals with the cloak of \’political correctness\’

  5. What a great piece of writing…hope you dont mind I may adopt it as my favourite!?
