When I was in South Africa, all white people, I had a discourse with, seemed to be racist. I know, everything happens for a reason, and when you have to lock your doors and run a red light, so that not to be robbed, driving through some districts in Joburg, that's not remarkable, that you treat blacks like that. Actually, not just in SA, but almost everywhere in Africa whites look down on blacks, treating them as a subhuman. Although, those who has traveled to Africa, even as a tourist, can get this point much better.
My question is about relationships between black and white men and women. I can't recall, I saw any mixed couples in SA, just walking down the street. Is it considered normal, or whites essentially shut blacks out of their life?
Now me, I notice that A LOT of people work all the time- and it seems mostly to get laid (or at least that's the starting idea- after that, they need somewhere to live, to get food/water/etc...). I always looked at that as being like a junky- I'm not going to drop $20,000 on a hooker, why the hell would I work THAT hard for a casual screw?
I'm more than a bit annoyed at how "barren" my life has been & part of it's my fault, but a lot of it has to do with the environment- IF I find a woman that things click well with, I don't get to enjoy it because I'm either always working (and it works the life out of, well,... your life- amorous parts included) or because I'm so paranoid about things like the law flipping out over anything or nothing at all (it's not like there's a shitload of oversight & most things coming from them get deemed a non-issue). Anything short of that isn't worth the work & that includes the "Jerry Springer Lifestyle" that I got to live a bit on when I was younger. So it's either having a Pyrrhic Victory whether it's (recreational or serious) or shit blowing up in your face (and possibly dragging your kid(s) into it). Can't wait to get somewhere else.
The behaviour of blacks will make anyone racist. There is a saying, what is the difference between a tourist and racist? About 2 weeks. Just like with jews, it doesn't take long for any novelty to wear off and experiences are primarily negative.
Relationship with a black woman? I would rather cut off my balls. I have nothing to do with them except purely civil or commerical interactions. I don't invite them into my home, don't want them working for me, nix, nada. Even my maid is white. That way no theft, no crime risk with information on your assets, firearms and movements sold, and no demands for loans, not pitching for work etc. They are like the canaanites in the bible. Bring not the canaanite into the house of the lord of hosts. Do not marry amongst them, hewers of wood and drawers of water shall they be for all their generations. Multiculti is a failed experiment all over the word. Only strict apartness works.
The white man has been carrying these people on our backs since seeing their first black 150 years after the white man arrived.
Why do they always want to be around whites? Why can't they leave white people alone? We don't make a scene that we can't be around blacks or we get robbed or murdered. Blacks move into an area, whites move out and it becomes a slum with rubbish everywhere and everything in decay and crime. White never want to move to their areas, so why do they always want to be around whites. Even the chinese that come to africa make chinatowns where whites are welcome but not blacks. No one wants to be around people that behave like savages.
When I was in Uganda, i met a dutch expat, who married a black girl. Although her large family leeched off him, he was quite happy with his choice. He runs a small business there and he even appointed her relatives to work for him, and now suffers of mismanagement. But anyway he seemed very positive. Love is so unpredictable...
You seem to be into off road driving. Could you please give me a piece of advice, whether there is any better maps for Mozambique, than track4africa?
Why would anyone marry their pet?
Tracks4Africa is great. I use it to plan offroad trips. Don't rely on road maps. I use google earth as I can see current condition of roads and where they actually are. I plan routes either on my GPS or using route converter
It is like the mapsource but free.
I then check the route on google earth and the warnings on tracks4africa, which I have as a kmz layer. I also need to plan things like fuel, as my range is limited and sand can really cut into that range. Locked gates can also cause a detour and I may not have the fuel, so I have to check that in advance.
I covered about every road inhambane provice for work, and know Tete area well.
Just remember when driving all the animals in the road, the 2 and 4 legged kind. What is the difference between a dead dog in the road and a black? the skid marks in front of the dog
Not sure if you are holidaying or working in Mozambique. The south sucks. Commericialised and full of obnoxious south african tourists who bring everything with them when the food in Mozambique is really good. You need to get north of Xai Xai to really enjoy mozambiue. Last time I worked there was about 12 years ago.
If going north from Maputo there is a great eatery next to the petrol station in Macia. Looks like a dump but the food is great. If you go through Maxixe there is a road side eatery on the beach where all the tourists go. The food is kak and it is full of Mlungus. a few km north of town there was a restaurant and motel run by an old portuguese couple. Far nicer food and a good place to stay. They don't speak english. Hope they are still there. All the locals go there. It is called Manhala Rex. I stayed there a few times. Doubt if they will remember me from so long ago but few saffers stay there. The saffers prefer the more modern advertised kind of places, so they might. Ask them if they recall a stocky south african with reddish hair who was alone and working in the Inhambane Province. Once came with his girlfriend as well. It is not like the place is crawling with white people, especially not kitted out like tourists.
Are you saying that whites were the only inhabitants of what is now South Africa for the first 150 years after they had first arrived?
That is history. they arrived in the Cape in 1650 and only came across blacks in the late 1700s when whites were moving east and the blacks south. That is why they imported Malay labour. The border between white and black areas in the late 1700s was the great fish river in the eastern cape. Blacks are not native to the cape, except the eastern cape east of the great fish.
The original inhabitants were a few scattered Bushman San and Khoi people who were not negro butare classified as the Kapoid race. More a yellow brown and different DNA than negroids. Under apartheid the survivors were classified as Coloured, not Black. It makes sense because they do not have the tribal culture of blacks, nor the same customs.
If you read original settler accounts you will not have one reference to blacks. There was a need for labour met by bringing in people from Java.
In other words, both white and black are settlers. The whites just arrived in the Cape first. The Bantu blacks in southern africa came from west africa migrating south.

We're seriously at the point where flat earth is a thing, and where black people aren't native to Africa.
. . . That's where we're at, folks.

How much do you know about SA history?
I'd like to hear from you what we're missing.
