I have always regarded myself, in the first place, as an African patriot.After all, I was born in Umtata, forty-six years ago.Can anyone honestly and seriously suggest that in this type of atmosphere the scales of justice are evenly balanced?
When it triumphs as it certainly must, it will not change that policy. I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination.
I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons will live together in harmony and with equal opportunities.
All the rights and privileges to which I have referred are monopolised by whites, and we enjoy none of them.
The white man makes all the laws, he drags us before his courts and accuses us, and he sits in judgement over us.
It is true, as I have already stated that I have been influenced by Marxist thought.
But this is also true of many of the leaders of the new independent states.
Similar facilities are not provided for the African children... The Government often answers its critics by saying that Africans in South Africa are economically better off than the inhabitants of the other countries in Africa.
I do not know whether this statement is true and doubt whether any comparison can be made without having regard to the cost-of-living index in such countries.
I know this sounds revolutionary to the whites in this country, because the majority of voters will be Africans. But this fear cannot be allowed to stand in the way of the only solution which will guarantee racial harmony and freedom for all.
It is not true that the enfranchisement of all will result in racial domination.
