South Africa xenophobic insanity

South Africa xenophobic insanity I have a shame to say I am South African now, Look how barbaric is our fellow citizen are, What a damage they have caused to our country’s image, Image that one man spent 24 years in prison to create it, They call it democracy, how it came they forget, Dozens of our freedom fighters spent their life in exile, What is exile we don’t even asked ourselves, They spent their lives in outside countries illegally, Fighting for this freedom, They were treated with respect, Treated with dignity, And received any assistance in their endeavor , Endeavor to fight for this called SA, Assisted by them we now call foreigners, It takes foreign country for us to deliver the export, It takes the foreign country for us to receive the import, It takes the foreign country to boost our economy, Whoever is a refuge must be treated with respect and dignity, If you know how it feels like to starve, sleeping in cold, killed, suffrage and etc For once put yourself in their stand, They are people regardless of their status, legal or illegal, Help them and love them the way you can, If you are a human being in right mind, Listen to their story how they landed in South Africa, their trip, We are not sure if this democracy will last forever, What if we starve in future and forced to become foreigners in their countries, Or we need their assistance, financially or materially, What about our businesses in their countries? I believe anyone who is xenophobic is insane and need urgent mental evaluation. Love your country and other countries as well, Love foreigners, help foreigners like you will like to help your neighbor or relative, I repeat the above lines a million times. Human must feel for human.
