A TOILET PROBLEM

When the law of Apartheid was promulgated in South Africa the goal was to organize a state of things on the ground whereby the country gathered two inimical groups which are the occupier and the occupied who have to be separated like two wrestlers in a ring . The colonizers had to organize the relations between the two groups since this occupation was to last . This is why they established the Apartheid law to consecrate this state of things . No doubt that this tension and hatred -created by the occupation, genocide and absence of treatment of the matter- resulted -in addition to the lot of bodies buried under the ground- in an amount of hatred driven under the rag of civilization and in the aberration of calling it racial rather than colonial whereby those who committed genocide were labeled as white rather than colonialists driven by greed .
The colonizers did not know then that the Apartheid policies will inspire their allies in the western world to apparently solve the problem of racism caused by the colonialists everywhere .This happened by creating what is called the anti Apartheid policy . This policy- instead of eradicating colonialism that is responsible for racism – chose to deal with the outer manifestations of racism by inciting colored people to ask for equal rights with the colonizer who originally had no rights at all . By this the colonizer -who is the usurper and violator- became a par to the native who is the victim . By this two goals were attained : the colonizer was given a legal status and a legal right to the land and the victim was dispossessed of his right to chase the colonizer out and retrieve- therefore- his right over his land . The USA made great use of these policies that sought to erase the differences between the two parties- defined as two races – regarding the law which did not change so much the living conditions of Black people as it relieved the US from the burden of the African American issue.
This so called racial hatred as it was denoted between the two races was then pushed back again and buried under deep layers and would wait for another opportunity to break out . This negative energy has found an outlet in the several wars launched by US over other poor countries where black and white people together let their anger out and directed it to others . The coexistence between the two races required such wars!

We require that the wounds be opened and treated and things be given their true names so as not to create more injustice and wars .

 LIFT THE ANTI APARTHEID LAWS LET THE PEOPLE REALIZE THEIR TRUE CONDITION AND STOP HIDING THE AILMENT AND COVERING THE LIE WITH A WORSE LIE
