I did not benefit through this system, and I am ot benefitting now, but I do not believe in hate, I do not believe that we must punish all white people for the injustice that was done to us years ago. I believe when or if we want a just society we must treat each other fair, with love and mutual respect. I believe we can Achieve this through sharing wealth that was obtained through the unjust laws of this country and help to re built our country. We not born to hate, but it was created through the injustices of the Apartheid regime by fools, not leadership but idiots who thought they above God. I want to help build more peace in our beautiful country and I believe we have the ability to do this when we look pass our hatred towards others. We cannot blame everyone for what has happened in the pass because they have not set the laws that time, but we can embrace our diversity and built a better SA for all. It breaks my heart to see so much hatred and anger towards innocent people and the ones created this mess are long dead and buried. When we willing to acknowledge the wrong, we can also except the good. AMANDLA. I believe together we are stronger. Even drag maak Mag. I love my country, I want us all to work towards a better and more beautiful SA for all to live in Peace and Harmony and that can happen when resources are shared. Live and let live. Simunye' we are one'

I am tired of the hurt. I want to stop some of the suffering. While we stand back and allow BBBEE affirmative action to equalize I acknowledge that it will never heal or result in fairness and correcting any unfair discrimination based on race, gender, sexual preference or identity. It is only love and true compassion that we may overcome and start caring for each other deeply.

I'm signing because I believe whole heartedly that apartheid was a crime against my fellow South Africans, and I want to apologise for the affect it has had on ALL who has suffered due to this terrible system

I did not benefit from the unjust race laws.
It is, however, sad that the seeds sown decades ago are now germinating in the previously oppressed.

This needs to be physically acknowledged before one can be free.

It's the right thing to do. We must acknowledge the past and we must apologize
