Business Day: Affirmative Action not to blame for white poverty

April 13 2012 at 05:00am


In the wake of President Jacob Zuma’s recent visit to white squatter settlements in the west of Pretoria where he gave the undertaking that the poverty among white people would be looked at, Anton Alberts, a Freedom Front Plus MP asked Labour Minister Mildred Oliphant if she or her department had done a study about the unintended consequences of affirmative action, which he believed had led to an increase in unemployment among white people.

In the parliamentary style he asked: “If not, why not; if yes (a) who did the study? (b) when was it done and (c) what were the findings of the study?”

The minister replied yesterday saying: “No, the department did not conduct such a study because there is no correlation between affirmative action and the poverty among white people living in squatter camps. People living in white squatter camps are no different to millions of other racial groups who live in squatter camps.”

“Poverty anywhere affects people everywhere – government is constantly engaging in activities to alleviate poverty among all race groups on an equal basis.”

Alberts also asked if there were any measures in place to address the negative consequences of affirmative action and if so, which measures? Oliphant replied: “No there are no measures because there is no correlation between affirmative action and the increase of unemployment among whites. It is important to highlight that even with affirmative action, we still remain with the same racial disparities that our country has inherited along racial lines – almost 98 percent of poor people in the country remain black.”

Just in case she didn’t get the message, Alberts also asked if she had any intention to do such a study in the future?

She replied: “Please note that the department does not intend conducting a study of this nature and if we did, it will be certainly be (sic) all encompassing to determine the vulnerability of all people that live beyond the poverty line, irrespective of their race, gender and disability.”
