In every community in the Western Cape, particularly where black South Africans live, you are likely to notice a lot of closed businesses. In most cases the owner probably didn’t research the market or determine which products the community needed. Most of our people go into businesses to be their own bosses, rather than going into it to serve the customers.

Black South Africans have a very bad attitude towards business. The complaint you hear so very often about black owned business is their poor service. You go into the establishment and the individual behind the counter totally ignores you, and you must wait until he is ready to serve you with bad attitude.

This has several negative repercussions. Customers are angered and word gets around about the uppity attitude of the owner. Two weeks later, he is unable to sell the products he has procured and the store closes. In most cases, when you go to purchase from him the product is no longer fresh or the shelf-life has expired.

He cries that South Africans don’t support him and he goes out of business.

Barely three weeks after he closes and abandons whatever he was unable to sell, a Somalian, Ethiopian or Pakistani moves into the exact spot. Before he can say “I mess-up or my friend are taking our money…” these brothers reinvest and thrive in their own communities.

These brothers have a very methodical way of accumulating money and riches in South Africa. They have totally integrated communities like spiders, and any fly that dares enter will never come out alive. They have developed or created what is called the “Spider-Web Economic” doctrine.

These brothers don’t eat any food other than their own. They don’t spend any money they make from us on other race other than their own race or community. Whatever money they make circulates within their own community.

If South Africans want to venture into opening shops, or any kind of business, they can learn a lot from these brothers and stop this nonsense of Xenophobia. These guys are business minded and are risk takers not risk-averters.
