Domo Arigato Mr Roboto

Cool, A <a href="">life sized Gundam</a>.  Hmmm, 1.5m tall?  Only in Japan.

Excuse me, WTF!

Dr Motsoko Pheko, head of the Pan Africanist Congress has demanded that white South Africans apologise for supporting apartheid and colonialism.  Seriously, I kid you not.
That's right according to Dr Pheko the blame for the current state of the nation falls entirely at the feet of each and every while South African.  I'm not even going to get into the whole debate about current troubles all being blamed on a set of laws that were effectively repealed 16 years ago.  I mean the wikipedia article on apartheid even lists it as the major causes of the HIV epidemic in SA.
Well Dr Pheko I've got news for you.  I will not apologise for something that was effectively over by the time I was 12.  I am sorry, ie I feel saddened, that thousands of native South Africans suffered terribly under a minority regime, but I will not apologise, and in so doing accept blame, for something I was not even vaguely a part of.  Oh, "Sins of the Father"? Fuck that Shit.
Seriously get you shit into gear and actually do something about the problems facing South Africa.  Stop ensuring support for yourself by barraging your supporters with smoke and mirrors intended to distract them from the real issues at hand.  Get down to it and set an example for other political parties in South Africa by attacking unemployment, lack of education, AIDS, corruption and crime.  But I realise that you'd prefer your supporters to remain mindless zombies that are easily bent to your will.  You and your ilk represent all that is fundamentally wrong with politics.
I understand that this is exactly the kind of response that you are hoping for, you'll be able to misrepresent it perfectly to show how unrepentant white South Africans are and how important it is that people follow you blindly in order to rid this country of them.   Go ahead, I don't care
