Millennials are universally known as the worst generation that has ever walked the earth. One often hears about campus students demanding safe spaces or crying for the now ever popular crying closets (yes, that’s a thing). When one watches as some millennials stumble through life in the aimless pursuit of deciding what it will be that offends them today, the future of this generation seems unpromising, to say the least. Sure, it’s a little funny. I’m sure most of us have a good laugh as we shake our heads, listening to some pink haired twenty something proudly proclaim that they were supposed to have been born a cat, and this is now the reason why they meow and hiss at people. While this is all true, South-African millennials have a real reason to want a safe space, and it has nothing to do with their preferred pronouns or having their gender identity added to the ever-growing LGBTQ alphabet soup.
There are no safe spaces for millennials in South-Africa
In fact, there are very few safe spaces left for most of us to enjoy. We live in a country where our worth is not measured by our qualifications, our years of slaving away in front of our textbooks, or our willingness to work hard to create success out of our potential. No, it’s measured by the colour of our skin. That’s it. It’s the only shot you get, and you’ve messed it up already because you weren’t born BEE approved. In truth, my heart breaks every day for the South-African millennial. Where American millennials scream each other down with an arsenal of discrimination and prejudice, South African millennials are given the freedom to agree with the mainstream narrative, the one spun by the corrupt, racist and incompetent ANC. At any given moment a South-African can be seen paraded on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook for the unforgivable crime of disagreeing with an ANC narrative. Punishment for insisting on historically factual events comes in the form of public humiliation with the promise that those foolish enough to reject Ramaphoria will have no future in Sunny South-Africa. Isn’t African Democracy a gem?
So, what does one do about it?
If you haven’t asked the question yourself, you haven’t been paying attention. Some millennials are long gone. They’re trying to hack it out in a country far away from anything they have ever known in the hope that maybe, just maybe, they won’t be judged and dealt with according to the imagined crimes their ancestors have committed. That unfamiliar and homesick place is their safe space. But what about those who must stay? What about those who can’t afford to flee? Home has become an unravelling and hostile place. How does one survive here? Secession. It’s a beautiful answer to a terrible question. It means you don’t have to leave behind the beating drum of African soil so synonymous with your own heartbeat. You don’t need to leave abandon everything that makes you who you are. You don’t need to scour the earth for a fair shot at life, a world that makes sense, a safe space. Many of those who came before you have suffered unknowable horror so that one day, you, a descendent they will never know, might enjoy a place to call home. Don’t leave it behind, save it.
