No, lets blame the corrupt leadership who use racist opportunism to shore up support. You are no different than Indonesian politicians calling for the blood of innocent Chinese minorities, ending up in massacres. The "bad blood" you are talking about is simply you calling for racist revenge against innocent people.

Why are people on here justifying what South Africa is doing? I fear for the future of America. If so many can justify the acts of tyrants, when the heat comes against us dissenters, too many on here will just look on while we're rounded up or will even turn us in.

Right. What happens when whites become a minority here? Is the majority going to use the slaughter of American Indians, spanish-american war, slavery and Jim crow to justify theft of property, wealth, etc? Because if so I'm not giving it up without a fight. I have always treated everyone with respect and worked my tail off for all I have. Which is why I want to keep my guns and the rights to access more guns, better guns, if I need to.

South Africa is more similar to the treatment of Chinese in Indonesia which ended up in massacres of the Chinese minority. Just pure opportunistic racism.
It was a campaign to return French land to the French people who had pulled over the land for about 1100 years and then watched it change hands for the next 400.

Still havent seen a single one of you actually argue against what has happened when the previous owners of a territory expell the conquerors . There are thousands of examples of this amount what most would call " white " nation's fighting amongst themselves , only when we speak of two contrasting skin tones is it labeled racism.

Of course its racism and bigotry. Just like ethnic cleansing of another tribe going on in Africa, usually called "ethnic conflict", but in reality its racism.

We had only the most cursory knowledge of world (or any) history. Whatever we learned about SA would be all we had ever known.

In short, we were ideal for propagandizing. Fertile ground ready to seed. We were to become ANC sympathizers and the less we knew, the easier would be the task.

It mostly succeeded. The boycotts were condoned, ANC atrocities and ideology were excused, and apartheid was vanquished. A good thing and they lived happily ever after. Except they didn't.

We were unwarned of the side effects that might follow. And we didn't pay much attention to such mundanities as rape, AIDS, murder and decay. What did they have to do with the ANC? They were growing here, too.

Now, we're approaching the last chapter. One not in the book we read. Another country, its path prepared by Western intellectuals, sliding into the Marxist-Leninist abyss.

As our instructors of 50 years ago had planned.
Those instructors who all had gotten a foothold in America and the West in the 1960s were simply white Western haters, who hate white majorities and nations. Their goal all along was to dispossess and scatter white people wherever they're gathered, SA, Europe, America and the West. I completely oppose all things that promote diversity and multiculturalism because of its real motivations and goals.

But the bantus are not indigenous to South Africa. We're not talking about the whole continent of Africa or who is indigenous to South Africa. You're just not getting it.
