Recent reports reveal that Black South Africans have been killing innocent law abiding African immigrants in recent weeks. According to BBC news:
“At least five people have died in anti-foreigner attacks in recent weeks, as foreign-owned shops in South Africa have been attacked and looted in east Johannesburg, the latest in a series of xenophobic attacks.
“Many South Africans accuse them of taking jobs in a country where the unemployment rate is 24%”
Hollywood-based Actor Chet Anekwe shared his thoughts and concern on Facebook about what is going on in South Africa. Here is what he had to say:
“It is not today they started killing Nigerians! The world is noticing because they have started killing other Africans. How many years of stories of their disdain for us?! It didn’t start today!!”
“They are killing innocent law abiding citizens! I am shocked that a large number of the SA intellectuals are tacitly, if not overtly, turning a blind eye to the years of these atrocities.”
He continued to say:
“The anger I have for what is happening in South Africa runs deep. I don’t want to kumbaya this issue. We did that when the very African nations of the people they are now slaughtering, stood by Black South Africans during apartheid. Stood by them politically and financially for all those years! And look how we are repaid…
The father of a South African family I knew, that had fled apartheid to Zaria Nigeria, had such deep rooted disdain for Nigerians! And he passed that disdain to his very kids, all while they were all still living in Nigeria! Bastards like him, who eventually went back to SA, pass this cowardly hatred to others. To the point that a family member of mine, visiting SA some years ago, thought it was safer to say they were American and not Nigerian….
It’s a weak self-hatred… They couldn’t save themselves…. They couldn’t get themselves out of their own bondage… Every other African nation was colonized, then fought, and obtained, their independence… They couldn’t… So like a damsel in distress they cried out for help. Singing every sorrowful song they could sing, begging for others to come free them….
And Africa responded…. And their world changed….
Now we are the “foreigners” you must “hunt” and slaughter on your streets?
There is a profane, angry tirade in my heart that boils deep.”
