A new white African tribal custom to make managers out of boys

Racial empowerment laws in South Africa leave fewer opportunities in the job market for white male school leavers.

White male children especially will find it difficult to get good jobs. They have to wait for the selection to sift through potential employees among firstly

black women then,

black men,

then coloured women,

coloured men and lastly

white women before white boys can be considered for a job in a major South African company.

Companies are being presurised to apply these laws.

The same racial sifting will be repeated when promotions are to be considered

Educate White children to become managers from the start

White children need to be empowered to become managers and run their own companies before they leave school.

White South African parents may need to find solutions for the white male unemployment problem.

Giving your child a good education is no longer good enough for South African whites.

Perhaps we should look at black tribal customs, where the boys go into the bush to become men, for new solutions to the present white employment problem.

White boys could attend a finishing school year to become managers and self empowered as a new white tribal custom. (Perhaps in the overseas work market instead of the bush)

One cannot fight against the odds. While black people carry bleeding psychological wounds from past injustices, whites need to allow them the space to heal without sinking into poverty and despair.

Struggle makes one strong and “Boer maak 'n plan” There must be a peaceful solution. A win-win solution for all races. We cannot force racial equality in the job market but we must find a working solution.

Perhaps South Africans living overseas can help securing the futures of the boys from their fellow countrymen.

Help white South African boys to keep their heads above the water. (figuratively speaking)
