Thread: White woman, you're no longer black!

  1. #1

    Default White woman, you're no longer black!

    White women would be the biggest losers once the broad-based black economic empowerment amendment bill was enacted as expected early next year, BEE specialist Andile Tlhoaele said on Monday. The proposed changes meant they would no longer be entitled to benefit from empowerment programmes as has been the case till now. This represents a victory for the black business lobby, which has been fighting for their exclusion.

    White women would no longer be regarded as legitimate beneficiaries of black economic empowerment once imminent new laws come into effect, a member of a subcommittee of the presidential BEE advisory committee, Andile Tlhoaele, said in an interview.


    The Broad-based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) Amendment Bill eliminates all white people including the disabled. “The definition of black people is now clear and aligned with the Constitution,” Tlhoaele said.

    There has been widespread criticism that white women were benefitting disproportionately from black economic empowerment with their black counterparts relegated to the bottom rung of the drive to redress societal inequalities. The Black Management Forum has been leading the calls for white women to be excluded after it came to light that they were the fastest rising category of people in terms of employment equity.

    Tlhoaele said the inclusion of white women had been abused. This had defeated the aim of true inclusivity.

    Now that the B-BBEE Act would take precedence over other legislation relating empowerment, enterprises would no longer be able to claim employment equity points for white women. Employment equity is a key element of the B-BBEE scorecard used to rate empowerment credentials.

    The Employment Equity Act still has white women as a designated group for affirmative action purposes.

    Tlhoaele said proposed changes to BEE legislation would go a long in ensuring that growing numbers of previously disadvantaged South Africans were drawn into the mainstream economy.

    Trade and Industry Minister Rob Davies gazetted the Broad-based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) Amendment Bill two weeks ago and gave members of the public 60 days to make submissions. Another highlight of the amendments has been the criminalisation of the practice of misrepresenting BEE credentials, known as fronting.

    In terms of the proposed amendments, those involved in fronting could face jail terms of up to 10 years or be fined 2%-10% of annual turnover depending on the seriousness of the incident. In addition, contracts awarded to guilty companies could be cancelled.

    Further, the amended law requires the government and its agencies to comply. The auditor-general will audit and report on BEE compliance for government departments.

    Stock exchange-listed companies will be required to submit annual reports to the B-BBEE Commission, which the amendments propose. The commission’s function would include supervising adherence to the act.

    It would further receive and investigate complaints relating to B-BBEE, and maintain a registry of major empowerment transactions. “The proposals are a bold move and demonstrate government’s commitment to ensure successful implementation of BEE,” Tlhoaele said. “The Broad-based Black Economic Empowerment Amendment Bill closes many loopholes in the current BEE Act – a move that is long overdue.”

    Don't worry Chinese guys are still black.

    This is funny. I heard of a white guy who parachuted out of a plane and landed on electrical cables and burnt himself enough to fall under the disabled category. Despite his job being sitting behind a computer all day his company decided to make him permanent from contract seeing disabled falls under BEE. Now his company cannot just make him a contract worker again. LOL

    You should know mos that even the Disabled people exploited the working class 'previously disadvantaged' if we were all to be equal then they shouldn't have wheelchairs, because wheelchairs are a luxury produced by evil white man plundered by the evil colonialists.

    Therefore this injustice must be set right, a black man with a varsity degree and a good family home is obviously at a bigger advantage in life than a white woman who is in a wheelchair and on an oxygen tank...This should be obvious given the fact that the white woman had parents who had legs.

    Not to forget in this new legislation the mention of individuals who are black, coloured and indian and are naturalized citizens of South Africa will now fall under BEE.
    What does this mean?
    The Indian guy at my company who got permanent residency on a scarce skills visa at 35 year of age now counts towards the company's BEE rating.
    The black Zimbabwean who gets permanent residency by marrying a black South African woman will be sought after in the market as he counts towards companies' BEE rating despite not being born here.
    The Nigerian who gets permanent residency through a fraudulent marriage now will be more saught after in the job market despite not being born here.

    Who is to blame? Dutch settlers. Holland is such a small place they can't take us back. This suits the ANC fine as they can gradually remove whites from South Africa. Farmers will survive to feed the animals. Rest of us will not.

    I have been on the receiving end of this. I have been told to my face that I can not receive skills development , and I have been told this year that I will not be in contention for a higher post for the next 8 to 10 years.

    Pisses me off when skills development is offerd and declined.

    But hey. We are industrious. Start your own business.

    I can't believe people continue to use this ignorant, dishonest, misleading fallacy. That's a classic straw man right there.

    In the beginning there was confusion. It was the first day. I as a white male were cast away.

    I was sad. The sun went down and tears of anger were shed. The sun came up. It was the second day.

    Things looked good. I was kicked down because I am white. The sun went down. Dark clouds filled the sky.

    The sun came up and it was the third day. I lifted my chin up high and faced the world. I was not black and nearly drowned. The sun sank.

    The night was cold and dark, but the sun came up. It was the fourth day. It was a beautiful day. My wife saved the day.

    The sun went down and doom lurked on the horizon. We thought and we thought well. We gathered and stored and safeguarded the stored. The sun came up and it was good. It was the fifth day.

    Clouds of thunder came rolling towards us, we were good. Hunger came, but it was not with us.

    And on the seventh day they say you who are white and tender, no longer render.

    We laughed, we sipped our wine, we did not care, and we do not care. We took care of ourselves. We chased away and those we have chased away are begging on their knees in the dust, but hungry they remain because their hunger was rooted in their own gods.
