Hahahaha. Well said.The ANC implemented race based policies for the last 25 years and data shows poverty, inequality and unemployment has increased. So what's the Democratic Alliance's solution to the problem? To continue the race based policies. Unbelievable!
Get out of here with your colonialistic tendencies.The ANC implemented race based policies for the last 25 years and data shows poverty, inequality and unemployment has increased. So what's the Democratic Alliance's solution to the problem? To continue the race based policies. Unbelievable!
I raise you provincial leadersSo Maimane, are you going to replace all these white DA MP's after the May elections?
Surely there must be loads of suitably qualified black candidates to replace them all.
Are you going to be a man of your word and lead by example in transforming your own party accoding to this new policy?
As far as I know they have long supported affirmative action, black economic empowerment and giving university places to those from disadvantaged backgrounds. But that affirmative action shouldn't mean hiring someone who cannot do the job, empowerment should benefit the poorest not the richest and disadvantage should be based on actual background not simply skin colour.Correct me if I am wrong, but has the DA not always supported BEE, just not the way the ANC was implementing it? Didn't they mention last year that they had plans of scrapping it then later in the year reintroducing it?
Why was it okay for Zille to support BEE and not okay for Maine to? And when you are trying to get the majority votes in a country where the majority is poor and black, why would any party be stupid enough to not address the issue to attract voters?
I am not a DA fan, but we have had to put up with a lot of hypocrisy over the years on this forum based on many points, this being one of them.
B - BBEE: The DA again surrenders to the ANC - SA Institute of Race Relations
Source: https://irr.org.za/media/06-11-february-press-release-da-empowerment-11-02-19.pdfThis past weekend, the DA’s Federal Council determined to shut down any debate on empowerment, choosing instead to adopt the ANC’s model of Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE), and the mantra that “race is a proxy for disadvantage” as a justification for its position. It was the decision of a party that has surrendered itself intellectually and morally to the ANC’s grand hegemonic hold over South African policy.
