The more the present regime blames absolutely everything on apartheid, the more people they are actually getting to believe them.
Peet van Aardt has written an article for news24 wherein he makes the case that because he benefitted from apartheid, that all white people should pay more taxes as per Desmond Tutu’s wish.
To argue on your superficial and topical level: How much did our sport stars, who weren’t able to get any exposure on an international level and hence not earn an internationally competitive salary, benefit?
In your proposed social engineering-restitution experiment should our past sport stars such as Danie Gerber not maybe also be compensated for this loss during apartheid? Are they not also “previously disadvantaged?”
If you benefited, while a guy like Danie Gerber didn’t, why don’t you pay a portion of your salary over to him every month? Why should all whites pay a redistributive flat-tax?
Also, why does no-one seem to ask the question of why the government should manage the great white-black redistribution? Why can’t the admitted guilty white apartheid benefactors such as Peet not manage the process. Wouldn’t this at least be a little more efficient?
Once, again, people keep overlooking the fact that apartheid was not a white vs black issue, but rather that it was the government vs all. Nothing has changed.
Forcing whites to pay higher taxes and redistribute to “previously disadvantaged” will only make our problems worse.
