So sad, so damn sad.

Jeepers another one.
Sorry to say it but these sites are too damn depressing.
For a week or so I read through the Blog called "Why South Africa is Crap", but stopped.
The negativity is too much!
Life is short and I would rather keep an open mind of more positive things.
If one had to continue to follow these sites one might as well pack ones backs tomorrow and leave as that is the message that comes across.
Perhaps from time to time I will take a peek.
BTTB: the problem is besides for making a few of us all depressed, the website actually serves no purpose. Too few people who can actually do something about it even knows of its existence
I suppose you go through stages in your life?
At the moment I just want to be positive and enjoy my life.
That may sound selfish?
I think time mends all wounds.
South Africa will step into the future. It will just take a while.
I feel very positive about our country.
I am sorry that those people in those stories got hurt in the way they did.
Nothing I personally can do about it.
If we really want to be heard and the white people have issues I think they would be better off getting together, discussing the issues and then presenting them to Government Leaders. I think you will be amazed at the positive response it may get?
Putting our hopes in Opposing Political Factions is probably going to be fruitless. I think they will sell you out down the road anyway.
The White People that helped build this nation need to regain that same spirit they had 100/200 years ago when they were not lazy to work.
Nowadays it is easy to just sit behind the TV and do the Couch Referee thingie while the maid cleans the house.
We need to regain that spirit that was lost.
It is sad to see the white people just sitting back and taking it.
Only in South Africa. Thanks to the GVT with their own hidden agenda's!
From site to site its the same thing.... so sad.
uhm white people are not the only people that are subjected to violent crimes.
When have you demonstrated leadership skills?
"Well my best example would be in online video gaming. I pretty much run the show; it takes a lot to do that."
This site reports the crimes by date as they become aware of it and if you looked closely there is quiet a few blacks that were effected, specially the child rape crimes, but a lot is against whites where nothing were taken so the modus operandi was not theft!
Ah well, soon global warming will take us all out
Seriously tho, SA has more crime than most countries, but there's **** everywhere.
I mean, hows that Amish murder yesterday? - crazy talk.
Also, if you take a look at London crime stats, it's pretty scary.
They had a discussion on the news this morning about what to do if teenagers are causing a disturbance - the bottom line, don't confront them.
People have been murdered or seriously assulted in big cities here, by teenage thugs. The scariest thing is, the only motive is "for the fun of it" - they don't steal anything!
Where I live is totally crime free (90km south of London) - well, as close as it'll get - but in bigger towns and cities here, there's plenty of crime. Certainly, it's not on the same scale as SA, but it's there none-the-less and a lot of it is just as horrifying, if not more so. The motive for a lot of assault here is simply "for kicks"
It's kinda like the whole "clockwork orange" thing playing out for real - teenagers being violent for kicks. Not nice.
To put perspective on this, you could have a blog about any countries crime stats which would be shocking - it's the modern world we live in.
SA just has a level of crime above "the average" right now, due to a totally inadaquate police force and a government in denial, head buried firmly in the sand, and, dare I say it, the legacy of the past - you can't fix a socio-economic disaster overnight - then again, the way the current SA government is going, it'll never be fixed ...
