Dear Savages


Dear South Africa,

I really think you care less if I write or not but I choose to waste my time to write. I want to tell you of my observations of your new savage and brutal nation, under your gutless ANC rule. You place more value on your resources than your people. You are a disgrace. Your greed is killing you but none are willing to stop you, so keep on killing yourselves, the world is watching in horror. Your Leaders should be ashamed of themselves but they are too busy stealing and counting their Rands. There are too few good men and women in your nation, sadly for your fellow countrymen and women they will have to bare the brunt of your crimes and just have to stand your incessant breeding of worthless individuals; all of whom, will inevitably be destined to rule over a scared and cripple nation. In a world where the electricity works and the water is drinkable I write down my hatred with shaking fingertips. I understand you are unable to see my words written and unwilling to digest what I write but still I write to exercise my anger.

Should I turn my back on what I have witnessed? Close my eyes to all the beatings and murders over the past 2 years in Black South Africa. Should I recognise the black man as a lesser being than I and think...well, who cares...he was poor and black..he probably had it coming and deserved it. Can I fly to a country that hates itself as it does in South Africa? Can I pay for food, travel and accommodation and in so doing, support a rotten nation that murders its own. Of course it will not effect me. A white Englishman happily going to the Art Fairs of Jo'burg...Well, it does effect me. I am but one man, but I want to make a stand here. All of humankind have a value. Each man and woman have a right to a life, regardless of race of economic circumstances. In my heart I hate South Africa. I hate what it stands for. It stands up for cowardly behaviour and applauds it. South Africa has no guts and therefore I have no place in an African nation that has no heart, no soul and really no GUTS! I will not be attending the Art Fair this year or any other year, until such time as South Africa wakes up and starts to love itself and holds those that have killed to account.

Yours sincerely,

Joe Pollitt,
African Artists
