Siya Kolisi’s interracial marriage ‘a waste of good white genes’
After millennia of protecting ‘good’ white genes, all is ‘lost’, according to one self-appointed expert on genetics.
Following Springbok Siya Kolisi’s wedding, some white people have taken to social media to express their “disgust” at the interracial marriage. One Hannes Lottering from Pretoria, according to his profile, said he prayed it did not happen to his family. “Honest to God, I would not know what to do,” he said.
His comment unleashed a lot of comments from his friends, who said the marriage was “f***ing wrong”. One Dillon Shane Jackson said if a member of his family married a black man, he would disown them.
“Tell them to never come around again. Cut them off from any inheritance they would receive,” he said.
“What a waste of good white genes,” said Josh Beckett.
Lottering was angry that whites had spent thousands of years protecting the genes, and now “all is lost”.
“What a waste,” he said.
He further said their marriage was wrong because it was not going to last, and Kolisi’s wife, Rachel, would be left stranded, as no white man would want her and her “half-breed” kids.
Would a lion mate with a buffalo? Asked one of his friends.
From the comments, one can tell Lottering’s friends were just concerned about his wife’s prospects after their failed marriage.
“Every white woman that marries a black man ends up with a case number,” said Paul Kietzmann.
One Catherine Van Vuuren disagreed with Lottering and his friends, saying she thought people should not be racist, a comment that unleashed more vitriol from Lottering and friends, who said they were not racists but “realists” who were practising “free speech”.
The problem with mixed “breeding”, according to Lottering, was that the “worst inferior bloodline” became dominant. In fact, some black people only started reading and writing 100 years ago, and for that reason, he would not want to have grandchildren “as backward as that”.
In fact, Kolisi’s wife had total disrespect of her own culture. “Utterly disgraceful, there is not future or hope,” said Derick Hattingh.
“This is totally against the laws of God and nature, I would never accept it, I would not make myself unhappy to accommodate someone else’s perversions, no matter who they are,” said Quinton Jackson.
