Nationality

No Snow Here blogs:

Earlier this week, I saw a commercial on TV. Several shots of people saying things like “I am American,” “I am Korean,” and “I am Indian.” When I heard the words, “I am Israeli,” I shouted some expletives at the screen. WTF!? And I shouted some more expletives when I learned that apparently the “right” to a nationality is Youth For Human Rights International’s 15th human right (just not for Palestinians, who have no rights, human or otherwise).  First, Israelis and Americans have no “right” to a national identity. Israelis and Americans have a national identity that exists on the backs and dead bodies of indigenous people, so I don’t even want to hear that bullsh#@. Second, most people in this world have a national identity that was entirely invented and forced upon them by colonizers. Who drew those lines on the map? Who constructed and named those countries? Uh huh.

The Whites Are Crazy!

Posted by Jack Stephens on October 23, 2007

Ridwan comments on a recent commercial advertising the Rugby World Cup which is meant to conjure up images of the movie The Gods Must Be Crazy, a racist movie from apartheid South Africa from the 1980s.  After explaining the concept of the movie and its white supremacist undertones the blogger goes on to explain the commercial and his dismay to it ever being created:

The background music is also taken from a very popular Afrikaans song known to conjure up images of the mythology of Afrikaner (whites of northwestern European ancestry) culture and their “trek” history.

The advert ends with a ‘sane’ voice-over by a white South African. The white voice reasserts the hegemonic rationality of whiteness against the barren and undeveloped childishness of the Khoisan!

Why are we still here? Who are the idiots who re-hashed this racist crap? And why does our national broadcaster, the SABC, not know better than to allow Vodacom to stand on the dignity of the Khoisan.

We will not be free anywhere until whiteness is broken so that it cannot degrade our bodies and our dignity anymore.

See more prtotests over the advert here.
