    Does South Africa have the most toxic race-relations in the World?

    This has been a very enlightening thread for me. The utter lack of empathy or sympathy for the plight of black people and the callous narratives of the horrific atrocities perpetrated on them in this country has sickened me. It actually made my heart ache which is why I debated with myself...

    Does South Africa have the most toxic race-relations in the World?

    And that callous attitude is part of the reason why South Africa is where it's at today.

    Does South Africa have the most toxic race-relations in the World?

    I happen to have read an article at some point that said they were paid around R60 per day in 2012. I simply neglected to mention the per day. Obviously no one can be paid R60pm in this day and age, but YaY for you, let's give you a round of applause for catching me out in a lie.

    Does South Africa have the most toxic race-relations in the World?

    Ok let's examine that presumption. You have R3k disposable income, what university do you think you can send your child to for R3k? What is your child supposed to eat and where must they sleep while attending varsity for R3k?

    Which is why I said around R60. What I failed to add was per day. If I take your R1503/22 days we arrive at R68 which is what I said.

    Absolutely 100% agree proper education needs to be pushed. That's one of the main ways to get out of this cycle.

    Does South Africa have the most toxic race-relations in the World?

    Please go back and read through this thread to figure out how we arrived where we are now in this discussion. I think I'm very much on topic.

    Does South Africa have the most toxic race-relations in the World?

    Even as recently as 2012, the average salary for farm workers was in the region of R60. And even at that it was purely because the government forced the increase. However would a person be expected live off that and still save something for the future?

    Does South Africa have the most toxic race-relations in the World?

    Alright people were not explicitly bought or sold, but they could not come and go as they wished. They could only live and work where they were told and could only come and go when they were told. How much leeway do you think such a system allowed for blacks to earn non-slavery remuneration?

    Does South Africa have the most toxic race-relations in the World?

    So riddle me this. How are you not enslaved when almost every aspect of your life is controlled by someone else? You're not allowed to live or work where you want. You're not even allowed to go where you want and would be arrested for going into areas deemed not fit for you?

    Does South Africa have the most toxic race-relations in the World?

    So you believe black people where not enslaved after 1833 and during apartheid?

    What are you talking about? Slavery was well established in the 1600s already.

    Does South Africa have the most toxic race-relations in the World?

    Here's the part you are washing away. The Hottentots did not kill or enslave the bushmen when they arrived. The blacks did not kill or enslave the Hottentots or bushmen when they arrived. These groups of people were not merely sitting and scratching their asses waiting for the white man to come...

    Does South Africa have the most toxic race-relations in the World?

    I agree whole heartedly with you that part of the problem is the failing government. They've done a terrible job of helping their people. I also know some claimants don't want the land because they are too busy worrying about feeding themselves. What good is the actual land going to do you if...

    Does South Africa have the most toxic race-relations in the World?

    You're not the first person to make this kind of statement. I'm curious what apartheid did that benefited black people more than today? Are you of the opinion that it was better for black people to be nothing but slaves?

    Does South Africa have the most toxic race-relations in the World?

    I'm really perplexed by sentiments like yours. The man was imprisoned for 27 years for fighting slavery. How was he a terrorist :unsure:

    Does South Africa have the most toxic race-relations in the World?

    Imagine if you will, someone breaks into your house, rapes your wife and daughters then proceeds to enslave you along with your wife and children. This person takes your house and all your possessions and ensures you will never again own a house. This person then makes sure to prevent your...
