“Before 1652 there were no labourers, no workers, no servants and no servitude. All that was, was labour of love. Black people worked their own farms. They were Masters on their own right. The African land and its wealth gave our great grand parents the right to be Masters. Black children are the children of Masters! They have the right to know that the great are only great because we are on our knees! They have the right to know because knowledge is power!
They must know that horrible accidents happened in South Africa after 1652. Historical accidents did occur! Historical accidents which were deliberate and were designed to put the destiny of a South African Black child in suffering and poverty forever.
Then there was no poverty and no million orphans. There were million cattle and million hectors of land. There was human dignity the meaning of which was freedom from fear, hatred, and poverty.”
