You know Nostradamus? You know man, the dude who published a collection of prophecies about various world events? Yeah you do.
Well, one of his prophecies is that the yellow race will inherit the earth. For centuries, Asians have been referred to as yellow skinned peeps. I don’t mean that in a derogatory way, but that’s what he said and that’s what others have said.
Anyway, guys, it’s officially happening.
For years now, China’s influence on African infrastructure has increased in the billions as China’s investments in Africa is allowing them to slowly colonise the continent.
So, the next step? Teaching us Mandarin.
As of next year, South Africa plans to implement the teaching of Mandarin in all public schools. HOW can they even think of introducing a new subject when more than half the schools in this country don’t even have teachers to begin with. The idea was noted in a recently released ‘Circular S10 of 2015: incremental implementation of Mandarin as a non-official language from 2016-2018’ which goes on to state:
The roll-out of Mandarin will be incrementally implemented in schools as follows: Grades 4-9 and 10 will be implemented in January 2016, followed by grade 11 in 2017 and grade 12 in 2018.
What the actual eff? We already have Greek, Portuguese, French, Urdu, Latin, German and others to optionally choose from and now we’re going to have Mandarin as well?
Teachers union Sadtu completely opposes the idea and sees it a form of colonisation.
We’ll oppose the teaching of Mandarin in our schools with everything that we have. As Sadtu we see it as colonisation. As much as during colonisation some people were complicit in selling our souls, that’s what’s happening [again now]. We’re going to make sure that we’ve got serious campaigns against this particular colonisation. We see it as the worst form of imperialism that is going to happen in Africa.
And they have a point. The decision to introduce Mandarin to schools in South Africa was inspired after a bilateral trade agreement made with China, South Africa’s biggest trade partner. Angie Motshekga, Minister of Basic Education in South Africa announced the notion last year already, saying even then, “It is important for our children to become proficient in the Confucius language and develop a good understanding of Chinese culture.”
But Sadtu just wants to know who’s getting what, accusing the South African government of yet another instance of corruption.
The issue is what’s in for these officials and these politicians. Does this thing of the tablets [being distributed in Gauteng schools] have anything to do with this particular thing? Who has received a kickback out of these tablets? If you discount a tablet for me, do I have to give you my life?
