SA Sports “Too White”

South African Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula has formally suspended that country’s rugby, cricket, netball, and athletics associations from bidding for international tournaments because they are too white.

Making the announcement this week, Mbalula said those organizations had “failed to transform”—that is, they had not attracted enough black players.

“I have resolved to revoke the privilege of Athletics South Africa (ASA), Cricket South Africa (CSA), Netball South Africa (NSA), and South African Rugby (SARU) to host and bid for major and mega international tournaments in the Republic of South Africa as a consequence of the aforementioned federations, not meeting their own set transformation targets with immediate effect,” Mbalula said.

He said the South African Football Association (SAFA) had met its target—unsurprisingly, as that sport has always been a black-dominated recreation in South Africa.

However, Mbalula criticized SAFA for not being popular among the handful of majority non-black schools remaining in South Africa. These schools—a combination of private institutions and what were called “model C” schools, have shown little interest in playing soccer.

“In respect of the South African Football Association, I will issue a ministerial directive as a consequence of their poor drive to penetrate and roll out football in former Model C schools and private schools,” said Mbalula.

He said that his move was “morally the right thing to do” because of South Africa’s Apartheid past, and, he added, because 84 percent of the country’s under 18-year-old population was black.





A plan has been put in place to “increase the representation of black players” in South African teams, with a government appointed committee assigned to report progress.

Sporting federations in South Africa signed a memorandum of understanding last May, which included a five-year plan and commitment to “make changes.”

The crux of the agreement included a prerequisite for 60 percent of international players to be black.

However, not due to any fault of the sports associations themselves, only a tiny number of blacks have signed up to play any of the sports, making it impossible to meet the 60 percent quota.

The effect of Mbalula’s decree will mean that none of the listed associations will be able to host any sort of international tournament.

Rugby—traditionally an Afrikaner-dominated sport—will be the most adversely affected, as South Africa will now be unable to bid to host the 2023 World Cup.

  1. Excellent idea Graham.
    And I'm sure European countries or U.S. would be happy to have white immigrants for a change if the talented young men from this sh***ole country were still inclined to pursue their sporting interests. Besides, we could use a decent rugby team here in U.S.

  2. At the end of the day there will be no money in sport. This government is killing our sport. no problem less money to ——–

  3. Yo creo que el político negro, o de raza negra, lo que quiere decir es lo que no podemos decir los occidentales, en sus propias naciones occidentales.

    Y, que, en resumen es : No podemos consentir la superioridad del hombre blanco.

  4. This latest decree from from our esteemed " minister " of sport lends further credibility to the reported average IQ for South Africa being a near retard 60

  5. Couldn't agree more, I'm sick of this multiculturalism being shoved down my throat England is to white what a load of bo-ll-ocks, is Africa to black yes it is ,cuts all ways, true Europeans are white ,Asian, African,Arabs can never be European not even if they are born here.

  6. You could do well to obtain a paperback entitled, "The Diversity Illusion" written by Ed West ISBN 9781908096050. Admittedly, it focusses on the UK but the principles are the same the world over as this article further confirms is the case in SA.

  7. This is just the continuation of their evil plans, to demoralize us whites in south africa. They attack our culture, try to destroy our history, now they want to deprive us of our sports. Chaps, listen up, this is just smoke and mirrors, the end game is to make us totally demoralized. Once your enemy is demoralized you can attack them with impunity.

    Mark my words, the blacks in south africa, are planning the fastest,most grotesque genocide the world has ever seen, they will accomplish in 1 day, what it took the hutus in rwanda 2- 3 weeks to accomplish.

  8. One of these days I'm going to sit down and write a paper entitled "The Myth of Racism". I don't believe that racism exists. I think that what some people call racism is actually just life experience and learning by observation. Is it racist that I won't walk through a black part of town? Or is it that I have seen over and over and over again what can happen to someone who goes there?

    When I see a never ending parade of black men on the news EVERY morning being arrested for committing violent crimes does it then make me a racist if I decide that I would rather spend my day with white people? There is no such thing as racism. I am leery of black people because empirical evidence has shown me that they are more violent than white people and the latest FBI crime statistics back me up on that, as does the US prison demographic.

  9. I've boycotted the NBA for years because its too black. Since black men only represent about 6% of the US population, I don't think they should represent anymore than that is a professional sports league and if they do then that is biased against other races. Blacks can't have it both ways.

  10. I think it should be law that all teams be 100% black. South Africa would never win a single international event again and the individual sporting bodies would be bankrupt inside of 12 months.

    Clean sweep & then they could start from scratch.

    Meanwhile private sporting organisers would have & host international events free of any baggage of incompetent black officials or players.

    Let them hang themselves…. More rope please.

  11. This is the racist bullshit that we have to endure daily. Thicklips's ANC were marching in 80's against political meddling in sport, now that they are in power they are doing exactly that. sponsors should do the right thing and pull out.

  12. Ok… this is just stupid, how many blacks play cricket? I meam for real, lets punish some white dudes for not having black partners in a game that the blacks don't like …..

  13. “I have resolved to revoke the privilege of Athletics South Africa (ASA), Cricket South Africa (CSA), Netball South Africa (NSA), and South African Rugby (SARU) to host and bid for major and mega international tournaments in the Republic of South Africa as a consequence of the aforementioned federations, not meeting their own set transformation targets with immediate effect,” Mbalula said.

    Sooooooooooo if the black kids aren't up to scratch..they HAVE to be selected just because of some PC drivel from this guy????

  14. So? If I read correctly, you can say that soccer has too many blacks playing it.
    Bullshit quota laws at their finest.
    Do they care for results–or for politics?
