Although one may differ from Tokelo Nhlapo’s assessment of blacks who are always victims and, of course, his view of Steve Hofmeyr, he is right in that SA blacks are essentially “extras” in the cinematographic sense in the umpteenth Anglo-Boer war, as well as a greater geopolitical conflict.
White liberals like Koch are the worst racists in that their paternalism infantilises blacks: they impute a child-like innocence and lack of agency to blacks.
At another level, anti-racism is just a form of Boerehaat, inciting the black “extras” against Afrikaners like it has been done for decades or even centuries now. White liberals and leftists apply a crude form of game theory to their black extras, expecting them to act like robots or Spanish bulls when they wave the red flag of “racism” to them. “There’s your racist, now go and attack him.” Otherwise, it’s: “Down, boy. And here’s your commission for getting me the tender. Or your free BEE shares. Go and buy a Merc or a Porsche and be happy, you lucky ‘Black Diamond’, while your brothers languish in 40% unemployment and misery.”
