Incredibly, 25 years after the fall of apartheid, Orania is a place for white people only.
....
The reality, however, is a disquieting and entirely white town, littered with old apartheid flags and monuments to the architects of segregation. While there are no rules preventing black people from visiting, those who live nearby fear they would be met with violence.

Says the buggers that invented the scorched earth policy, colonised large parts of the world, literally enslaved indians and africans, and had the gall to ship their convicts to a different continent. The Dutch, Germans and French don't hold a candle to British Savagery.

But hey, history is written by the winners (that had to call in the US, when they got their asses stomped by ze Krauts)

Orania racist? Maybe, but the Brits should be very careful throwing that word around...

Muslim only areas in England? Really? Where. Give me the exact location.

I can't give you that. Just that in some areas Muslims congregate and things get bigger and tend to be Muslim-only. Same with other races/religions in many countries.

Much like the Muslim-only, etc. areas in England I guess.
It's nothing like that.

Orania is a town that strictly controls access and who may live there etc. That's nothing like a natural congregation of people withing a larger city (like London).
Prospective residents are required to go through an interview process with a committee, which may deny access to people based on criteria such as criminal records.

I'll give you a hint , there was a clue in my post , or you can just google who has traded the most slaves and continues to do so .
I saw that. No indication they learned from them. Slavery has existed in many forms over many millennia.

Also Orania is not only for whites , some whites are excluded , its for a certain niche market.
Alarmist headlines chomping at the bit for clicks vs the same old same old xenophobic attacks daily.
