A South African blast from the past

As we ready ourselves for the challenges of the new year, wondering what life will bring, what with the state of world politics, the global economy, and the state of the enviroment with global warming and all that jazz, to name but a few.

I thought I would take the day off and step back in time and revisit a time when life was simpler, slower, less rushed, people had time for thier families, men were gentleman and a promise was kept and sealed on a handshake, woman used to cook like thier mothers and not drink like thier fathers.
It just felt good to slip back in time and relive a time long forgotten, I just had to put together a little montage to share with everyone who, like me, just needs a little time out now and again.
Hope you enjoy it.

P.S This is for the old grey haired farts like me, the under 30 crowd, this is all brand new to you.

Want a real blast from the past? Remember the original KTV presenters from

I lived in South Africa on and off for some years now. Lived in Cape Town
Port Elizabeth and in East London. I have many found memories of Springbok
Radio as it had some great programmes and great shows as well. Ek woon in
Suid-Afrika op en af ​​vir 'n paar jaar nou. Geleef het in Kaapstad Port
Elizabeth en in Oos-Londen. Ek het baie gevind herinneringe van Springbok
Radio as dit het 'n paar groot programme en 'n groot shows so goed.

In 1964, i joined my ship HMS Jaguar. in Simonstown SA, at the height of
aphartheit. I was only 17 and had never been out of the uk.What a wonderful
country ruined by such bitterness and hate.The ruling Boers, who seemed to
comprise the Police force too were despised by any right thinking
people..inc whites. The country was so repressive..no TV, everywhere shut
on a Sunday, even the mildest 'girly' mags banned... the church also has a
lot to answer for. I still remember the segregation vividly.

Only one country speaks Afrikaans and I appreciate it of little value
outside SA, but that's not why I included the language as one that should
be taught - it happens to also be the first language of many other South
Africans OTHER than a section of the white community. BTW - you are using
the wrod "we" and "our land" yet you write elsewhere that you're not
'black' - isn't it about time you declared your interest?

Автор Andy Rick ( назад)
I have NEVER written apartheid was ok - you are guilty of jumping to a
conclusion simply because I question your experience. I suspect you're a
politically motivated 'bleeding heart' - nothing wrong with that provided
it's declared and debaters aren't responding under the impression you're
speaking from personal/family experience.

Автор Andy Rick ( назад)
If you're so sensitive to white people writing about the past in SA
wouldn't it be instructive to follow the same rule yourself? It strikes me
that when its white folks - they being nostaglic and racist but when black
folks do its being realistic and assertive. Who are you to decide who is
'decent' or not. I'm no racist either. I asked you whether or not you
you're a South African - a civil question asked so that those you are
arguing with can test your actual experience.

Автор freegratuits ( назад)
At the end of the day, I'm actually wasting my time. I figured out long ago
that if you raise someone in the worst possible philosophy and they never
examine this philosophy, they will grow old believing it to be very true.
Most old white SA's who agreed with apartheid will never change and I'm a
fool for wasting my time arguing with them online. How can I argue against
an evil that so benefitted you and you agree? Never. So goodbye. BTW, I'm
not Black or American, only a decent person.

Автор freegratuits ( назад)
For real...thank you so much for pointing this out. It's so horrific to see
this: It's like Germans speaking proudly of the time around WWII when life
was great. The world would flip. But Black South Africans can't.

Автор freegratuits ( назад)
Reminds me of that splendid saying: Blacks must know their place. That
place being where white people designate it to be. Apartheid was an evil,
evil regime -it really was and your children are now suffering for it and
worse because you refuse to admit that. How can black people ever move on
when you refuse to admit the misery you put them through? Why always
compare the misery of one group of blacks to the other to show apartheid
was less harmful. How can you pray to God and then do this?

Автор freegratuits ( назад)
Funny, white people can recall the days of apartheid and compare those
shiny days to how much they hate SA now and they are not racist. But I
comment that those days were evil - like Nazi Germany, and I am being
racist. You're so wrong about my ethnicity, where I come from or where I
live. Stop guessing.I'm not guessing who you are because that means nothing
compared to what you say. What's really tragic and actually scares me is
that you guys think apartheid was ok. Really, tragic. Really.

Автор freegratuits ( назад)
Wow. Wow. Wow. So 80% of the population must speak a language spoken by
less than 10% of the population. Only two/three countries speak Afrikaans.
So where does that language fit into international commerce? White people
land on our soil, take our land then force us to speak their language ONLY
so we can better serve them and yet we can't even vote in that same land we
must work so hard in. How does this make sense to you and you sleep well at
night? You need to study more.

Автор Andy Rick ( назад)
No, the teaching of Afrikaans, along with English, was/is to allow
communication to take place. It was/is more sensible to teach two common
languages (one being a world language) that to attempt to teach every one
of the other living languages in the country. Vide: India, Canada, Cyprus,
Nigeria - ie states that have more than one language group.

You appear to be living in the USA. Are you/were you a South African? I was
getting at you for the attack you made on another correspondent who was
simply recalling his childhood - we all do that - nothing political
intended until you dived in to preach your anti-white rhetoric which is
just as offensive and racist as the rubbish preached during the apartheid

Автор freegratuits ( назад)
Let us suggest you stop using the same excuse for apartheid your govt used.
So just because we're suffering a bit less than the Congolese, we must shut
up? Seriously man - think about it. Black weren't allowed to vote? TO VOTE?
What nonsense is that? Let everyone vote and have a right to self
determination - that's what Mandela wanted. True, Zuma is not a good
president at all. I have no qualms SA having another white president so
long as EVERYONE can vote. Apartheid was evil-accept that.

Let us suggest you take a long trip into the rest of Africa, then come back

Funny. You think I am a man and I am a superstitious African. That must
help with your race to proving your weak point.Sad for you, AIDS is a
global problem that is now being solved.Next we must find a cure for
pathetic racism because you are suffering from it.Find your happiness and
it will remove the bitterness in your heart. I am sure I am not the only
person who is on the receiving end of your anger.Your own family members
must also be tired. Breathe in, breathe out: Blacks are here to stay.

The ANC may not be perfect, but instead of positively criticizing it like
members of society, whites like you keep creeping back to the most horrible
past and long for it out loud. That's what drives me crazy. Piss on Zuma
for what he is doing, not for his race or apartheid.Accept that apartheid
was wrong and try help build a country that is great because SA has that
potential.That can only be done if ALL races in SA work towards a same goal
of freedom and happiness FOR ALL.

45 years living under a white, minority, undemocratic govt and you claim to
know the workings of a proper govt? Go back to your books, even white
people grew frustrated by the choke hold of apartheid. You are really a sad
individual because as much as I have nothing against white South Africans,
I detest their inability to stand up for the real truth. That's all you
need to do.But that's too hard for you so instead you hang on to your blind

Автор freegratuits ( назад)
Fuck you people are so uneducated. SIMPLY because we had to learn
Afrikaans? Are you kidding me?We were forced to learn your language so that
we could grow up and be ready to serve you. WERE YOU LEARNING OUR
LANGUAGES? Hell no. And those were not our schools, they were your cheap
buildings. Afrikaans did nothing for me and I'm very successful. I have
nothing against it and it's part of SA history but dont get your facts
twisted. The purpose was to continue slavery.

She never lacked for anything but her own family and the ability to raise
her own kids and be able to go home. But no, she was stuck raising you for
44 years (guess it takes long for you to grow up) and was passed down from
your father to you like she's furniture and now you're proud that you give
her your cheap charity. You did her ABSOLUTELY NO FAVOURS. Don't ever
convince yourself of that.She could've become a doctor or something greater
but your govt's laws kept her locked as your slave.

You're very right...they fucked it up FOR YOU. Gone are the days you could
live like a king stomping on the necks of the majority of the population
while you sucked the minerals from their land for your own good and raped
their women. You enjoyed the life of a king with minimal education and
effort and now you have to prove yourself. How devastating that must be -
your philosophy of white supremacy has gone to the dogs. Now all you're
left with are grainy Utube videos and your keyboard. Shame.

Tell me how your life is better. Murdering and raping innocent little white
girls who have done nothing to you. Get a life PLEASE and stop
complaining.You belivee in your stupid witch doctors that tell you to rape

the rest of Africa, The Pharmaceutical COmnpanies dont want to have cure
for aids for South Africa - ssoner let them kill themselves off

You seem to forget that I lived ther for 45 years ! So I know all about the
workings of the Government. My family employed a young black woman in her
20s to loko after me when I was born. She was part of the family and was
treated better than most white employess treat their white staff. She was
with me for 44 years and I took finabicial care of her when I left. SA.
Every two years when I went back, I would go and visit her in Eshowe taking
her food and clothing . She never lacked for anything

Do you blame people or big business not wanting to invest in South Africa
? I know I wouldnt if I was multi million Dollar Corporation. Secondly I
well remember in the 1970s the vast majority of the black population that
stated buring down their schools, simply because they had to learn to speak
Afrikaans. I had to leant it at school so why one eveyr one lese. NO harm
in learning another langauge. There is now a whole generation of illeterate
and uneducated blacks running aorund causing mayhem

Автор freegratuits ( назад)
NO ONE wanted to invest in SA after apartheid ended. The white govt had
done well in making sure most people were not adequately educated so no one
was skilled unless we remained on our knees for white people still. Learn
about the changing of guard in the civil servant sector, the army, police
and even universities before you tell me a couple of blacks want apartheid
back. People refuse to learn the truth, instead they walk around and wish
they were still trampling on Nigger necks.

Автор freegratuits ( назад)
The problem is you don't read. You sit in your new exiled life thinking
back to the days 85% of the population was squashed on less than 10% of the
land - most of it barren. The days a black person had to call you madam,
even if they were older than you. The days 85% couldn't vote and poverty
levels were insane. You have absolutely no idea of the structure of
apartheid and how detailed the NP was in making sure even if there was a
mutiny, blacks would suffer still.

Автор freegratuits ( назад)
How can being a 4th class citizen be better??? Are you serious? Even the
ANC was not prepared for the misery the apartheid govt and white people
left behind. They were forced to inherit countless debts the apartheid govt
had amassed buying weapons to continue killing us etc. People (including
your little sample size of apartheid loving blacks) expected MIRACLES
because we never thought freedom would come so soon. It will change - don't
you worry. And we'll do it without your bigoted self.

Автор freegratuits ( назад)
Even for me? WRONG. My life is much better. The less than 10 black people
you've spoken to cannot be proof that ALL of us want oppression back. Yes
all they wish for was work, but thanks to white South African disabling the
economy right at the end of apartheid, there are very few jobs. People want
jobs, not apartheid. The ANC has had less than 20years to undo a mess white
people made for 400 years. Check yourself. You're believing that oppression
is good for people. Check yourself.

Автор steinwaygrande1 ( назад)
Even for you, things have changed for the worse. many blacks I have spoken
to now wish Apartheid could be introduced as back then many of then had
J.O.B.s ! Now unemployment is high and the ANC have never delivered on
their broken promises. SA is now a basket case.

Автор freegratuits ( назад)
Not me. I was a kid around the same years as you and I never saw my mother
because she worked as a maid in a white family's home and we were not
allowed to visit. My uncle was in and out of jail for trying to fight for
political rights. When we tried to play outdoors, the SA police and army
would drive by and shoot at us with guns and teargas. It was still good to
be a child, but SA white lauding those old days without acknowledging the
misery of 80% of the population is plain wrong.

Автор freegratuits ( назад)
Thank you! I grew up in apartheid South Africa and can't believe the posts
here. Insane! It's like Germans wishing for the days of WWII...that would
be wrong no? But it's ok for people to pine for the days they could oppress
black folks freely.

Yes...what a pity white people are no longer able to forbid the majority of
SA to vote. What a pity apartheid is gone. A pity Mandela is a free man. A
pity nonwhite people can determine their future without brutal oppression.
A pity SA is democratic now. A pity white people are not still able to live
like kings off the backs of blacks. Such a pity.

You are missing the point my dear man. None of the flash-back adverts have
anything to do with apartheid or racism - just an innocent trip down memory
lane. Thanks PA34Driver for uploading it for us. I greatly enjoyed that,
with a ping of sadness of times gone by (not of apartheid gone - as it
should be gone - but of time itself). But look, yes, under the ANC South
Africa has gobe to ruin, and it's getting worse. The prognosis is bad, very
bad. Get out if you can.

Ah, people pining for the days of legal racism. That's so cute. We have
those kinda folks here too in America (they're usually the ones with "tea
bags" hanging from the brims of their hats, along with the assault weapons
they tend to bring to seemingly every event). If you swapped the accents
you couldn't tell the difference because it's the same illogical belief
that only one color/ethnicity of people can truly be civilized. (And yes, I
would be considered "coloured" under your bizarre laws.)
