EFF & Uniliver protect executive who produced Clicks racist advert

EFF & Uniliver protect executive who produced Clicks racist advert

Black First Land First (BLF) rejects the sell-out agreement between the EFF and Unilever.

BLF had cautioned that the EFF was entering into a CODESA like sell-out deal. We were right. The whole negotiations served  to protect the executive who was responsible for the racist advertisement. We now believe that the executive is a white man.

Both the EFF and Unilever agreed to lie to the nation and say that the responsible executive has left the country. South Africa (SA) is under Covid-19 lockdown and international travel is banned. How could the executive have left the country? It’s a pure lie to protect the racist.

BLF will write a letter to Unilever and demand that it reveals the name of the executive, and gives 51% ownership to blacks without further delay.

We will not allow the EFF to protect the racist executive and racism in exchange for 10 000 sanitary pads and 5 black students getting bursaries.

To end racism 51% of Clicks must be black owned now!

To end racism 51% of Clicks must be black owned now!

Black First Land First (BLF) is aware that Julius Malema is on the verge of pick pocketing Clicks. A meeting like that of the Convention for a Democratic South Africa (CODESA) will be held today with Clicks. This tea and biscuits meeting follows the same pattern of meetings like those held with the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) executives after the 50,000 people march in October 2015. After the meeting with the JSE, the demands of the march were forgotten. The same happened after Malema’s meeting with Patrice Motsepe who was threatened with exposing his role in the Independent Power Producers (PPIs) situation.

BLF supports all genuine struggles against any acts of racism. However, we are critical of the opportunistic use of struggles against racism for self-aggrandizement by corrupt politicians.

Clicks is bullied into meetings to cut deals but not to end racism. The only way to end the racism of Clicks is to demand 51% black ownership of the business – with workers and the unemployed youth being beneficiaries, not any politician.

BLF therefore calls on Clicks to show authentic remorse by giving real black ownership of 51% to its black workers and the unemployed youth.

Racism will not be brought to an end by platitudes and meetings. No more CODESA-like sellout solutions. Only real black empowerment will end racism.

Kallie Kriel to answer charges of hate speech and racism laid by BLF tomorrow

Kallie Kriel to answer charges of hate speech and racism laid by BLF tomorrow

The Equality Court sitting at the Johannesburg Magistrate Court will tomorrow hear arguments on the complaint of Black First Land First (BLF) against the racist Kallie Kriel of Afriforum.

Kriel, representing the racist organization called Afriforum, will answer to a charge of hate speech amounting to racism. He is in clear contravention of section 10 of the Equality Act in that he committed hate speech by saying that Apartheid was not a crime against humanity. This is contrary to the established international law which has been been legislated upon by South Africa (SA). Kriel has not only denied that apartheid is a crime against humanity, but he has also gone further to defend his racist, hurtful, harmful, utterances of hatred.

Afriforum does not hide the fact that it’s a pro apartheid organization. Regarding it’s mission it says, “Afriforum works to ensure that the basic prerequisites for the existance of Afrikaners are met; by acting as a credible Afrikaner interest organization…”. Moreover, it identifies itself as part of the “Solidarity movement – outside the workplace on national level to handle the impact of the current political realities facing Afrikaners…”.

Judge Mojapelo’s description of Afriforum is instructive. He found that, “Afriforum is essentially about Afrikaner interests”.

This Afrikaner organization has defended the apartheid flag; and funded legal representation (Gerrie Nel and Barry Roux) to defend convicted Afrikaner criminals (Pieter Doorewaard and Phillip Schutte) who murdered an innocent black child, Matlhomola Mosweu in 2017. Now the same Afriforum says that Apartheid was not a crime against humanity. This is open racism. It’s the irony of ironies that the South African mainstream media, including the SABC, calls this bunch of apartheid apologists a “civil rights organization”.

BLF has asked the court to take strong action against these racists.

Drop-kicking Schwarzenegger a precursor to the coming black explosion?

[READ & SHARE]

By Andile Mngxitama

It came flying out of nowhere like a bolt from the blue. The representation of whiteness staggered and the fan base gasped in collective disbelief. Arnold Schwarzenegger was drop-kicked in Johannesburg by what looks like a deranged fan.

His demands make no sense at first. The drop-kicker is yelling for a Lamborghini from the shaken Arnie. Haven’t those of us who subscribe to radical anti-white supremacy modes of thinking and praxis warned following Fanon’s teacher, Aime Cesaire, that black demands for justice strike the world as both illogical and illegal? After all, we are reacting to the gratuitous violence visited upon us from the last 500 years or so.

Blackness is universally illegal. To call for justice for black people is a declaration of war. Justice for blacks threatens the building blocks of white civilization from the individual rights regimes to stolen property protection laws and jurisprudence. The world, that is the white world, functions on the basis of black surrender. Any attempt of black demands for justice invites violence. The white world, like Arnold Schwarzenegger, walks around with absolute confidence in its invincibility. Protected from wall to wall. Such knowledge breeds white arrogance.

The world hates blackness and ensures it is kept excluded. After all, for whiteness to maintain its coherence it needs blackness kept in captivity and suppressed. The whole legal, ethical and moral edifice which governs the world is expressly anti-black. From this reality there is essentially no possibility for justice for black people under the current power configuration.

Like Arnold Schwarzenegger, the white world is protected. But like a thief in the night, a black drop-kick will come in flying when least expected and a crisis of confidence may be inaugurated for whiteness. Whiteness will raise its guards and walls even higher as a consequence, but the black explosion lurks not too far from the white Alcatraz always. One day, the floodgates will open and there shall be blackness all around. The white power switch will go off. Blackness.

That kick was for Tokkie Williams whom Arnold Schwarzenegger sent to the needle despite calls, even from Winnie Madikizela Mandela, to save his life. Occasionally, a drop kick comes in for blacks. We wait.
