The English South African, His History, Culture and Achievements

The English South African, PDF format

by Shaun Willcock

The purpose of these articles is to counter the deliberate re-writing of history with those stubborn things called facts, and that wonderful thing called truth.  “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil” (Isaiah 5:20).


I am an English South African.  And I am constantly astounded by, and marvel at, the magnificent history, rich culture and astounding achievements of my people. What great things they have accomplished in their beloved country!

I say this without hesitation, and without apology.  In today’s South Africa, and indeed in today’s world, the English South African, like his fellow “white” South African, the Afrikaner, is viewed in a very poor light, as a racist, an oppressor, someone who does not belong in Africa and should not be here.  Everywhere in South Africa today, the history, culture and achievements of these two great African “white tribes” are denigrated, ridiculed, suppressed, destroyed even.  Once upon a time, not that long ago, they governed this great country, and for the most part governed it wisely and extremely well; but today in many ways they have been made second-class citizens in the land of their birth.  And the present rulers of South Africa – “black” South Africans such as Zulus, Xhosas, and others – have disseminated such lies about English and Afrikaans South Africans, and so frequently and thoroughly, that many of them have very little understanding of, or appreciation for, their history or culture anymore, and indeed many of them have even become ashamed of it.  They have fallen for the lies, propaganda and indoctrination of the Marxists and their fellow travellers who now hold the reigns of government in this country.  And this is a great tragedy.
