Christmas is on the 24th say what?
The Irvings were among 44,500 white South Africans who left the country in 2004, more than double the annual figure in 1996.
But after five years in Sydney and on a farm five hours drive from the city, the Irvings had had “enough of living in a sorted society”.
They decided to return home and help tackle some of the challenges that had prompted them to leave South Africa in the first place.
"We could have decided to stay in Australia which, as people kept telling us, was a safe place for our children, but we decided to come back and try and make South Africa a safer place for all its children."
Mrs Irving, an architect, is now working with Cape Town officials to help improve Khayelitsha, the country’s biggest township.
Someone who also left in the first wave, Angel Jones, was prompted to return on hearing Nelson Mandela reach out to a mainly white South African crowd on a visit to London in 1996.
"He told us: ‘I love you so much. I want to put you in my pocket and take you home’," she recalls.
"We all stood there with tears running down our cheeks. I had grown up with so much shame about the colour of my skin, but Nelson Mandela really did change that for a lot of white South Africans. I knew then that I had to go home. It was the most amazing moment."
She came home in 1996, just as many of her friends were packing their bags to leave, and set up Homecoming Revolution which connects the homesick South African diaspora with potential employers back home.
"It has been hard at times,” Mrs Sinclaire, 39, admits. "It’s not easy to open a newspaper or hear about what’s going on in South Africa, we have been sheltered from it.
"But we are finding our footing again."
Ohhh.. .how so very hard it must be for you to read about the hardships Black people are having in South Africa…… …………… …….. which are all partially your fucking fault because you and thousands of other white South Africans chose to leave and take all the wealth with you than stay and integrate and give up some power after Apartheid ended.
I’m sooo very sorry you have to read about the hardships of other people. Yes. That must be reallllllly hard. -________-
And at the same damn time, white people around the world think there’s a damn “genocide” happening against white south africans.
at the same. damn. time.
Taken from reddit but it can’t be stressed enough
I’ve seen this on my dash like 10 times now. It really bugged me for some reason. I couldn’t figure out why. Then it hit me.
