Mr. Morton,

Hi. Ms. Arendse kindly provided me with a copy of our interview a few days ago. I informed her that I would upload it with a full transcript this weekend, and thanked her.

Today, I was informed you had decided to make a post on the Voice of Cape Radio, titled, "'White Refugees' Take on VOC'.

I noticed you did not bother to send me an honourable courtesy email, to inform me, or even to ask for a comment. I also noticed that you did not bother to honourably inform your Voice of Cape Readers, where they could read my original email to you; nor that your excerpts did not include the following information, I provided to you, in my follow up email.

1. Re: your statement about the 133 (actually 142) academics who wrote an Open Letter to the Canadian Charge D'Affaires, strongly distancing themselves from Huntley's views.

Are you aware of Politicswebs article, Did 142 Academics Get It Wrong on Crime?

2. Re: Your views that 'nigger' or 'kaffir' is always considered an insult, and is never said without the intenton to insult.

Are you aware of the following recordings made by President Barrack Obama, regarding brutally frank friendly banter conversations held between him and friends, where the word 'nigger' was hardly meant offensively; to the contrary:

“Sorry Assed Motherfucka's Got nothing On Me. Nothing! Right?” (FLV:33K)

“And there are White Folks, and there are Ignorant Motherfucka's Like You!” (FLV.21K)

“You aint my Bitch, Nigga! Buy Your own Damn Fries!” (FLV:18K)

I also notice that your 'transcript' has been sanitized, which is probably why you do not provide a link to your readers to Download Full Radio Interview (FLV:6MB), kindly provided to me by Voice of the Cape, Ms. Arendse.

For example, your assumption that you were interviewing Lara Huntley, has been sanitized from your 'transcript'; your question about whether I had filed my complaint with President Zuma's new crime hotline, has also been sanitized. No problem, except the word 'transcript' generally means that the 'transcript' is verbatim, and your 'transcript' clearly is not verbatim.

So, it's what could be considered a sanitized 'transcript'. You know what they say about sanitized evidence in courtrooms, I imagine? It is the work of corrupt policemen!! So, what kind of journalism do you practice Mr. Morton? The 'sanitized yellow evidence' corrupt kind?

I imagine, if I was having this conversation in the Oakland ghetto, with some Malcolm X minded brothers, about your lack of honourable and deceptive behaviour; you would qualify for a “And there are White Folks, and then there are Ignorant Motherfucka's Like Shafiq Morton!”. You would also qualify, in my view, for the term “Kaffir!”, in its original etymology, which is the way I generally use it, which means, knowingly concealing the truth. I could add “White” to “Kaffir!”, but clearly you do not share Steve Biko's views on racial pride, and so in my interpretation of his views, that being black, or white is not a matter of pigmentaiton, but a Mental Attitude; your Mental Attitude, would qualify you, as a 'non-white'.

To conclude, Sandile Memela seems to be correct, when it comes to the use of the word 'kaffir' and 'nigger', as he states in Unlike a Rose, Kaffir does not smell the same to black and white the meaning of any word is not in the word itself, but in people’s heads.

Kaffirs do exist! The biggest sin will always be: Who says it!

The use of the K-word is something that most white guilt whites still need to discuss with their psychiatrists.

The time may be right for a society that has been undergoing transition for the past 13 years to appreciate new methods of defining the meaning of words and understanding their use in blunt, intense and provocative public speech.

Once 'kaffir' is out of the closet, pseudo-liberal forces both within the white community and their black imitators demand the person apologize, and put 'kaffir' back in the closet, to hush up any use of the word lest it raise the spectre of the apartheid past that haunts us.

But the panic and hysteria that has been caused in the white social and cultural circles is a sad farce of good intentions. The conclusion that should be drawn on this matter is that it is a combination of white guilt and political correctness.

Also.... a list of NGO's in EU countries who also need to be educated about AFRICA'S WHITE REFUGEES...

So if you write a letter on African White Refugees, or such stuff... we need to inform these organisations...

Also..... from ECRE: European Council on Refugees and Exiles:

Asylum issues will also be of particular importance at the EU level with the expected adoption by the European Council in December of the "Stockholm Programme" which will determine the course of EU law and policy on international protection from 2010 through 2014M.

We would like to invite all Members of European Parliament to engage with us and consider our recommendations to ensure Europe offers protection to persons fleeing persecution.

We have to make our little bits of effort to inform these people.. to send them the information about the plight of White Afrikaners... and White African Refugees....
