Came across this article. Went to the site and it is legit ...

Unemployed white South Africans blocked from registering on government jobs website

So if a white man say one of 2 specific words, he is fined, jailed and his whole life is ruined but then government can deny a whole class of people jobs soley based on their skin colour ???

Am I missing something here ? How is this allowed and not 100% racist in its truest form ?

Malema can say kill the boer and honeymoon for whites is over in South Africa and that is fine ? :O what is happening to South Africa

Jup, if it was the other way around it would be racism. This is fine though

They just want to remove the competition. It seems as though whites are over qualified for the jobs. That's fine, it's not like we want competent people working in government positions.

“The most recent quarterly labour survey from Stats SA shows that the rate of Black, Indian, and Coloured youth who are not in employment, education, or training are significantly higher than those who are white. Black youth experience the highest rate – at more than double that of white.”

This part of the article gets me the most...Of course it double the rate the black population makes up something like 75% of this country...Its a disadvantage nowadays to be a white male in RSA

Am I allowed to sell to white only people on carb ? No that is racist ... so how can government be allowed to exclude a race ???

This really boggels my mind. Can no law firm pick this up and sue in the high courts ?

How is this allowed to go on for so long ?

@GerrieNel anyone ?

I really wish threads like these will not be allowed on this forum, as we have a very diverse membership of all races on this forum.
We should be more careful of what we post, and not to antagonise any members.

Just my view

It's fine when everything comes to a grinding stop, it will be those same people that they are turning away to fix the problem. I've seen this first hand at Rand water were they ousted all the white people and filled their posts and it was only a couple of years before the sh1t hit the fan. They were begging for them to come back and the ones that did asked for 3 times their salary

If you are unhappy then leave ... I believe that is the message of the government

I am not blaming or attacking any carb people or anyone of colour .

I clearly state that what is being done is wrong and should not be allowed.

I know there are black, white, indian and coloured people on here (even Asian) I have dealt with every race on carb and never had a problem.

My problem is that government itself is being racist. Flat out. No 2 ways about it.

Because your grandfather was previously disadvantaged now means our children must be currently disadvantage ?

Sense ? Scale balance ? Correct way forward ??? No no and no ...

And eye for and eye will leave the whole world blind.

Such a great response I think I am stumbled...

Again I did not attack anyone. I am not being unfair or unreasonable I believe... I am just completely shocked that government is allowed to do this and allowed to be so open without any repercussions :/

Do you agree with what they are doing on the Yes platform @shimmie ?

This is blatant racism and should not be allowed. I agree 100% with Solidarity that this is nothing else then racism and that a country who has experienced this in the past should know better. The worst part about it is that the white people who had nothing to do with apartheid are now being excluded on the basis of race to correct a wrong in the past. Two wrongs don't make a right just as much as going left twice won't lead you right.

That this is being allowed is sick and disgusting. And if you are one of those guys who says: "if you don't like it then leave the country" you're a oxygen thief. You are a part of the problem in South Africa and all you are saying is we accept the problem and like it more than we like you trying to fix it. This is my country as much as it is anyone else's who was born in this country and its sad that it has come to this point, very sad. Is our government so intellectually limited that they can only focus on the past and not try to build a better future for EVERYONE???

If you go left 3 times you do go right though .... so that means we need to turn the table on BEE again ? Hahaha just kidding...

I see a few people are missing the point on the article completely :/

What is being done on the site is 100% wrong. You cannot argue against it or even try to. The governemnt is saying "You are white, we do not have a job for you" simple.

I am venting on here because sadly I have no where else to go to :( :(

Why should this thread be closed, we are having a open discussion. As soon as we voice our opinions about what's actually happening in this country then you must be silenced. Like with farm murder "it's not happening in this country" BS. We aren't being racist, just telling it as it is!!!!!

To be absolutely clear, this thread is speaking out against racism. I myself always say that this country belongs to people of every color, race and religion. If you are against people standing up for their rights then you are obviously for taking away their rights. Why are we not standing together against wrongs like these? Is it actually because you are racist? Because you are saying that its okey that white people are being excluded from jobs? And you are not allowing people to speak out against it?

What anatognises me is the assumption that expressing discontent at being racially discriminated against automatically means I am pro only that race and against all other races.

My apologies then, still trying to find out what there is to be positive about around racism? Anyway removed your names from my post so it wont be personal but this is still a question you should be asking yourself.

Agree with @Greekking I don't think it's fair that white people cannot apply for government jobs...it's not racist that he states his opinion....freedom of speech....I'm a 24 year old Indian male...graduated from Wits with a Bcom and still can't find proper work.
Not even standard bank will take me as a customer service consultant and their minimum requirements is Matric.

I have gotten to the point whereby I don't even bother applying to jobs that state EE because I do not qualify.
