Video: Jansen verduidelik Afrikaans-uitlatings

Prof. Jonathan Jansen

Prof. Jonathan Jansen

‘n Storm het  losgebars om die kop van dr. Jonathan Jansen, rektor van die Universiteit van die Vrystaat.

Jansen het hom in ‘n onlangse lesing op dié kampus uitgespreek teen wat hy bestempel as wit, eksklusief-Afrikaanse skole. Die Afrikaanse Taalraad, Afrikanerbond, Afriforum én die VF+ het te velde getrek teen sy opmerkings. Jansen sê egter hy val nie Afrikaans as voertaal aan nie, maar wil wél sien dat Afrikaanse skole meer divers word.

Intussen is ‘n nuwe mediaverklaring van die Percy Baneshik-gedenklesing wat prof. Jonathan Jansen, Kovsierektor, onlangs gelewer het, is op die universiteit se webwerf geplaas.

Die nuwe mediaverklaring is gestroop van die omstrede stellings wat Afrikaanssprekendes op hol het,soos dat uitsluitlik Afrikaanse skole of selfs oorheersend blanke Afrikaanse skole ‘n ernstige bedreiging vir rasseverhoudinge in Suid-Afrika inhou. Die nuwe verklaring gee ook duidelikheid oor sy standpunt oor moedertaalonderrig – dat dit handel oor die gehalte van onderrig wat sukses waarborg. Lees meer hier.

Prof Jansen het nog altyd baie respek afgedwing vir sy nugtere en goeddeurdagte sieninge en het ook daarin geslaag om die UV steeds die bakermat te maak vir baie blanke Afrikaners. Hy sal altyd hiervoor onthou word.

Tog blyk dit dat Prof Jansen iets van die strewes, versugtinge, vrese en diep innerlike gevoelens van die Afrikaners nie begryp nie. Dis juis om hierdie rede dat Prof Jansen dit “normaal” vind om sy uitlatings te maak en om dieselfde rede dat die Afrikaners onthuts voel oor dieselfde uitlatings. En is dit juis hierdie greintjie onbekendheid wat daar bestaan van een volk, nasie, kultuurgroep, taalgroep na die ander, dat daar ‘n verskeidenheid is en altyd sal wees.

Dit is juis gesonde kommunikasie wat tussen die verskeidenheid, veral ook in Suid-Afrika, moet plaasvind om begrip vir mekaar te kweek en om vreedsaamheid teweeg te bring. Om mekaar aaneen met klippe te wil bestook, sal meer kwaad as goed. So, die beste resep is maar eenvoudig om deurlopend in gesprek met mekaar bly.

As kinders wat in oorwegend wit skole is dan, volgens prof Jansen, wanaangepas is in die multikulturele samelewing, wat dan van swart kinders wat in oorwegend swart skole is?

Die enigste rede vir die sogenaamde sukkle in die werksplek het niks te doen met die taal waarin onderig plaas vind nie maar wel agv van die poitieke doelwitte wat sterk in die werks plek gedryf word. Ek het n ruk laas so n “stupid” uitlaating van ons top academics gehoor.

Show me the empirical study that has been conducted that shows that afrikaans people are struggling in the work place!

What have Whites done for Blacks during apartheid? The list follows :-

– The Apartheid government built ten Universities for Blacks including Medunsa which is a unique medical university that turned out 200 highly qualified Black doctors every year all at state costs, paid for by the White taxpayers. It also trained paramedics and nurses.

– Since 1970 the budget for Black education was raised by about 30% per year every year. More than any other government department.

– In the period 1955 -1984 the amount of Black school students increased 31 times from 35,000 to 1,096,000.

– 65% of Black South African children were at school compared to Egypt 64%, Nigeria 57%, Ghana 52%, Tanzania 50% and Ethiopia 29%.

-Amongst the adults of South Africa, 71% could read and write (80% between the ages 12 and 22). Compare this to Kenya 47%, Egypt 38%, Nigeria 34% and Mozambique at 26%.

– In South Africa, the Whites built 15 new classrooms for Blacks every working day, every year. At 40 children per class it meant space for an additional 600 Black students every day!

– In 1985 there were 42,000 Blacks at 5 universities in South Africa, about the same amount at the universities of the homelands.

– In an article called “Die Afrikaner” 11 Feb 1987, the quarterly magazine called “Vox Africana” Nr 29 4/87 stated that, South Africa had 5,8 million Whites and 18,2 million Blacks in 1987. The Whites paid 77% of the taxes and the Blacks only 15% … despite this … 56% of the government budget was spent on Blacks.

– During the time of Dr. Verwoerd the living standards of Blacks were rising at 5,4% per year against that of the Whites at 3,9% per year. In 1965 the economic growth of South Africa was the second highest in the world at 7.9%. The rate of inflation was a mere 2% per annum and the prime interest rate only 3% per annum. Domestic savings were so great that South Africa needed no foreign loans for normal economic expansion.

– Even Lord Deedes admitted, “White South Africa grew to become the economic giant of the continent, the other members of the Commonwealth virtually sank into poverty.”

– At the hight of Apartheid in 1978 Soweto had 115 football fields, 3 Rugby fields, 4 athletic tracks, 11 Cricket fields, 2 Golf courses, 47 Tennis courts, 7 swimming pools built to Olympic standards, 5 Bowling alleys, 81 Netball fields, 39 children play parks, and countless civic halls, movie houses and clubhouses.

– In addition to this, Soweto had 300 churches, 365 schools, 2 Technical Colleges, 8 clinics, 63 child day care centres, 11 Post Offices, and its own fruit and vegetable market.

– There were 2300 registered companies that belonged to Black businessmen, about 1000 private taxi companies. 3% of the 50,000 vehicle owners in 1978 were Mercedes Benz owners. Soweto alone had more cars, taxis, schools, churches and sport facilities than most independent countries in Africa. The Blacks of South Africa had more private vehicles than the entire White population of the USSR at the time.

– Today Soweto has modern shopping malls like, Dobsonville Shopping Centre. In 2005 the Protea Gardens Mall opened. This was followed by the Baramall Shopping Centre and the Jabulani Shopping complex and the Maponya Mall. Experts say that Soweto has as much as 25% over-supply of retail space.

– The Canadian Medical Doctor, Dr Kenneth Walker wrote about Soweto, (I freely translate from “Verrat an Südafrika”, Klaus Vaque, 1987,pg 41) “In Soweto I saw many homes that costs about $100,000 (1978) and that had a BMW in the driveway. All houses are single storey. Many are recently painted. Many had flowerpots in the windows and lawn in the front. Only 2% were shacks. If I had the choice to live in Soweto or in the apartment dwellings or “Projects” of New York, Chicago, or Detroit where there is so much crime, then I would not hesitate for one moment and choose Soweto.”

– The biggest hospital in the world, Baragwanath with 3200 beds and at its peak almost 8000 staff had 23 operation theatres fitted out with the most modern medical equipment that existed in the world. Blacks were treated here, operated on at full state costs to the White-taxpayers for unlimited periods. The budget of this hospital was and is higher than the yearly budget of most small member states of the United Nations.

– Next door to Baragwanath is the St. John’s Eye Clinic. The clinic is world famous for the treatment of Glaucoma, Cataracts, traumatic eye injuries and rare tropical diseases. All built and maintained by White taxpayer’s money for Blacks.

– Baragwanath in 1978 employed 450 medical doctors in full-time service. It treated 112,000 in-patients and 1.62 million out-patients per year. The children and infant death rate with 34.8 per 1000 was lower than Harlem in New York.

– In 1982 alone, this hospital performed 898 heart operations of world quality.

– Ironically 90% of the blood donors for this hospital were Whites, who donated blood free of charge, totally voluntarily, to save Black lives. (Quoted from The Citizen, 2 April 1987).

– Whites have already given Blacks their blood. What more do they want?

Ek was in ‘n Afrikaanse skool en sukkel glad nie, het tot ‘n onderskeiding in Engels gekry, waarvan praat hierdie man “dis ‘n feit”. Ouers wat dink hulle kinders gaan ‘n agterstand kry as hul in Afrikaanse skole is of gaan nie werk daar buite kry as hul in Afrikaanse skole skool gaan nie is sommer simpel, word dan engels want as jou kind in ‘n engelse skool is gaan hul engels groot word. Sulke mense moet hulself liewers nie Afrikaaners noem nie!
