Black People and Fried Chicken

I wonder how many times white people have gotten into trouble and been labelled racists for pointing out the fact that black people LOVE fried chicken?

How many times have we been told that we are intolerant racist pigs who stereotype black people in a negative way just so that we can oppress them for a little bit longer? 

But now I have to ask you - where in the world did we get this idea that black people love fried chicken? Could it be because white people think that there is something wrong with fried chicken? Nope - I know only a handful of die-hard vegetarians who wouldn't eat some good old Kentucky Fried Chicken (although I will be avoiding that for a long while after recent revelations of what certain KFC employees think of as good hygiene - KFC staff caught on camera)...

The truth is - and always has been - that on average, the majority of black people are head over heels for fried chicken. How do I know this to be true you ask? 

Well, in South Africa at least, black people love fried chicken so much that they are willing to steal money from taxpayers to purchase it. Yes - you read that right. Black people (coughPublicServantscough) are stealing money meant to better the living conditions of the members of their municipality. 

It has recently been revealed that in the last 2 years the Harry Gwala District Municiapality has racked up more than R400million in stolen public funds irregular expenditure. Of this at least R120 000 was spent on KFC and Nandos. That is a hell of a lot of money spent on some good old fried chicken right there...

And that dear friends is proof that black people love fried chicken... To spend ore money than the average person earns in a year on fast food which is comprised almost entirely of fried chicken is all the proof I need. So maybe you should stop calling me racist for pointing it out... do I call you racist for pointing out that white people love a damn good latter?

And after reading the article below you will probably ask me why I chose to focus on the relatively small amount of R120 000 spent on fast food as opposed to the other R399 880 000 stolen, lost, misspent etc? Well I'll tell you - I don't think that I have the stomach to deal with the complete and utter outright pathetic disregard for law and order that we are faced with in the public service today. 

It is for the same reason that I deliberately chose to refrain from speaking about the reprehensible and disgusting manner in which historic statues of people responsible for this country being what it is today were covered in disease ridden feces and excrement and vandalised and damaged simply because one small-minded moron wanted a few minutes in the spotlight so that he could spread his racial word-vomit and incite even more hatred and violence. 

It is the same reason that I choose not to write on the spree of murders and attacks against white people that have taken place this year. The reason that I have tried so hard to keep my mouth shut every time I hear some moron praise the name Zuma or hear his voice on the radio...

And that reason is because I am angry. I am furious at the way in which our country and our heritage and our very lives are being eroded away before our very eyes and the white population does nothing. I hear nothing. There is utter silence and a sense of depressed acceptance.

White people are too afraid to stand up to the current flock of racist savages that currently rule this country because they fear being labelled racist. And my anger is slowly growing. I choose not to write about these things right now simply because I fear what I will say and who will eventually bear the brunt of my ire and harsh words...

But mainly I choose not to air my views on these issues simply because my soul needs some catharsis. Because I need some time away from all of the negativity and because I need to focus on the good in my life before I lose my mind completely. 

I am starting to lose the battle somewhat and will eventually make a full comeback... But until then I will be keeping my news light - like focusing on this bit of evidence of how much black people LOVE their fried chicken...

Municipality spends nearly R120 000 on fast food

2015-05-12 07:29
Durban - Of nearly R400 million in irregular or unauthorised expenditure allegedly chalked-up by the Harry Gwala District Municipality over nearly two years, R116 310 was spent on Nando’s and KFC.
The figures are contained in a confidential report on an investigation into the district municipality’s expenditure for the 2009 to 2011 financial period.
The report, compiled by Midnight Star Consulting, is included as an addendum in a letter that axed Municipal Speaker Mandla Ngcobo wrote to President Jacob Zuma three weeks ago.
'Looting of public funds'
In the missive, Ngcobo urged him to proclaim a Special Investigation Unit probe into what he described as the “looting of public funds” in the district.
Ngcobo is understood to have raised his concerns before the council and also sought a high court order preventing further payment of a R22 million tender that almost doubled without reason.
Instead of supporting Ngcobo’s efforts, the ANC threw the book at him, disciplining him for sowing division within the party and prompting his resignation as speaker at a council meeting in March.
He refused to comment when contacted by News24.
The confidential report, a copy of which News24 has seen, details nearly R400m in expenditure that was either irregular, unauthorised or deemed fruitless and wasteful by the independent auditors.
They found that ranks of municipal officials had contravened the Municipal Finance Management Act on authorising payments without following proper protocol.
“Fourteen payments valued at R75 623.10 were made by the Sisonke District Municipality [now known as Harry Gwala District Municipality] to Nando’s outlets in the province of KZN in respect of meals. These transactions are in violation of Section 217 of the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, PPPFA [Preferential Procurement Policy Framework Act] and the MFMA [Municipal Finance Management Act] Supply Chain Management regulations that no competitive bidding process was followed.”
This equates to over 2 800 peri-peri quarter chicken portions at R26.90 each.
“Nine transactions valued at R40 686.90 were in respect of Kentucky Fried Chicken meals bought by the municipality throughout the KZN province…”
These transactions, with a value equivalent to over 1 600 Streetwise 2 meals at R24.90 each, were too in violation of competitive bidding legislation.
Other irregular expenses
The money spent on fast food was highlighted in the report, along with millions of rands irregularly spent on accommodation and travel.
Auditors also honed in on R10 176 096.01 paid to Tricircle Hardware.
“Payments of the aforementioned amount just on material only were made to Tricircle Hardware without going through a competitive bidding process of any kind. We found thirteen instances where transactions of more than R200 000 were entered into in violation of procurement legislation…These transactions are a grave concern and raise suspicions,” the report reads.
The auditors recommended that R396 379 876.96 be condoned and written off as irrecoverable.
“We recommend that an effective document management system should be implemented and that relevant staff members are held accountable to the cases where payment vouchers and bid documents, which should have been retained but are found missing.”
“The council should consider further investigation into transactions relating to material and stock bought by the municipality in 2010/2011,” it reads.
No action
The Harry Gwala District Municipality said it was aware that Midnight was appointed to investigate irregular expenditure, and that the investigation report was presented to council and it was condoned.

“Senior managers that were tasked to implement the recommendations of the report are no longer with the employ of the municipality; therefore, we are not empowered [to take legal action against staff],” the municipality's spokesperson Ndabezitha Tenza said.
