Black First Land First (BLF) is not suprised by the racist comments by the leader of the Demoractic Alliance (DA), Helen Zille. The DA is a racist party and therefore its main leaders advance anti-black racism in all their dealings.
BLF is shocked by those black people who are shocked that the DA leaders are arrogant racists. This is willful ignorance on their part. Helen Zille, to her credit, has always been open about being racist. Only those who refused to accept that she is racist are now suprised.
BLF also notes that some political parties and hypocritical whites have been hard at work trying to shift the focus away from Helen Zille the racist to Mmusi Maimane. This is a ploy to once against defend white racism under the guise of fighting against it.
It’s an open secret that Maimane is only the front man for the real leader of the DA, who is Helen Zille. BLF says “hands off Maimane” – he is like most black people, a mere employee in the white controlled and racist DA. The real culprits are Helen Zille and the rest of the DA white leaders.
BLF warns all black people who support the DA to know that they are supporting a racist organisation.
We have also begged the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) not to give political power to the racist DA. The arrogance of Helen Zille comes from governing four metropolitan municipalities, three of which are as a result of the EFF taking the votes of blacks and giving them to the racist DA. For this the EFF has to apologise to the nation.
BLF calls on the EFF to immediately break its coalition with the DA if it is serious about fighting racism.
BLF shall be opening cases of racism against Helen Zille in the relevant division of the Equality Court. We shall also report Zille to the Human Rights Commission for racism. Furthermore, BLF calls for the Hate Crimes Bill to proscribe racist organisations like the DA. To this end, BLF has already submitted its “anti-racism Bill” to parliament.
BLF is clear that until land is returned to blacks, there is no possibility of ending racism.
