How is South Africa a disaster specifically?
What? So you are saying you think South Africa is a brilliantly run nation and everythings all well there?
No. Review my question
Maybe I'm misunderstanding, but I'm interpreting the question as you thinking South Africa is run well.
The expression "you reap what you sow" springs to mind here. They brought this on themselves with Apartheid, they didn't give a damn for the black people then, and now it's come full circle.
Whether 90,000 white Boers have been killed (and in what time period, you didn't even bother to say), I'd be surprised.
There are about 2.7 million Afrikaners in South Africa. That's more than 5% of the population of the country.
The murder rate is around 32 murders per 100,000. For a population of 54 million that means around 17,000 murders a year. That means, just based on averages, 160 Afrikaners would be killed every year.
Are whites really being killed 'like flies'?
"Comments on SA's murder rate and the quality of life of white South Africans have been grossly exaggerated. Nechama Brodie tells us why."
" In fact, whites are less likely to be murdered than any other race group."
In 2009 "In 86.9% of the cases, the victims were Africans. Whites accounted for 1.8% of the cases (although whites make up 8.85% of the population)."
"According to Lancaster official police statistics show that between April 1994 and March 2012 a total of 361 015 people were murdered in South Africa. Applying the 1.8% figure, it would mean that roughly 6 498 whites have been murdered since April 1994."
Compare 6,498 to 90,000.
" The current murder rate of white South Africans is also equivalent to, or lower than, murder rates for whites recorded between 1979 and 1991."
So, I call your reporting bullshit.
"The expression "you reap what you sow" springs to mind here. They brought this on themselves with Apartheid, they didn't give a damn for the black people then, and now it's come full circle."
And THERE we have it, the Leftists stock response - it's the white peoples' fault, either on this South Africa issue OR for EVERYTHING else "The Slave Trade".
Hilarious "you reap what you sow"....nothing of course about two wrongs don't make a right.
Do you know ANYTHING about South Africa?
Firstly, the whites were in charge in South Africa, they kept the black people down, sowed resentment among the population. If you go from South Africa to Lesotho, you can feel the difference in how people look at you. In SA you're the evil ones who had Apartheid, in Lesotho you're the ones who stopped Apartheid coming to their country. But you wouldn't know that, would you?
Also they moved blacks out of their neighborhoods and relocated them far away from the white people.
Secondly, when the whites were in charge the murder rate was as high as it is today, at around 32 per 100,000. What did the whites do to lower this when they had the power? Not much.
Thirdly, they had Apartheid, pure and simple, it was an evil system and they imposed it on the black people and did all manner of bad things. If you do bad things, you have to accept that there will be consequences to your actions.
I didn't say two wrongs make a right. However if we were talking about incarceration in the US you'd say that the criminals should be responsible for their actions and the wrong of them doing a crime should be countered with the consequences for that action. So why is it different now? It's not, you just choose to forget things.
This is a measured look at poor whites in South Africa. Their situation isnt great but they would probably be poor wherever they lived.
And to be fair to Lucy she would be an expert on genocide.
Exactly two months after this thread began....after TWO MONTHS of NO posts in it....it get's suddenly bumped....what a waste of time bumping a TWO MONTH old thread.
Who did it fuck knows, it's one of the Ignored Crowd.
The stories are really sad. However it is important to remember how many black south africans suffer in poverty as well.
The government should grow a set and nationalise all the countries natural assets
to ensure they benefit all of its citizens.
