interestingEstate agent in our area says people are leaving "in the hundreds. Leaving their parents, selling everything and going".
i worked for the state dept at various missions - the public area of the consular sections have always had queues.I have run into people working at the US Embassy. They say they have queues almost every day now for months. My last set of long term friends are leaving in two weeks for the US.
How does one know these things? If I'm stopped for a traffic violation - what is customary to offer the nice policeman? How do you do it? Blatantly take out your wallet? Ask a leading question, 'Is there anything I can do to get you to ignore this?" Surreptitiously extract a note and slip it to him?**on a side note in some countries a "bribe" is customary & acceptable in the way the local population deals with things.
cash is often slipped in with documentation.
in some south american countries livestock is the preferred bribe, the sight of livestock in its various forms is not an uncommon sight near many embassies and consulates
With the current racial discrimination laws in this country and no talks about a sunset clause, there is little if no future at all for my children. Not the mention that snippets such asMost people around here leaving because they've got young/ish children and are concerned for their future.
is not uncommon in SA.Police said a two-year-old boy was shot in the head in an attempted hijacking near the R55 in Centurion.
Anc's view..StatsSA shows 22,000 whites leaving per year. You either know some of them or you don't. We also know that more than 22,000 professionals from other race groups are also leaving SA per year as whites no longer form the majority of those leaving. Then we also know there is a huge under count in those numbers as confirmed by HR.
So now whites are voting more in a "white nationalistic" way because they are being targeted and dehumanised via the "white this" white that" narrative. (No other race group experiences this narrative so directly as whites.)Theories of whiteness and white privilege (which focus on whites as oppressors), as well as of decolonisation politics, have been embraced and claimed by only a small section of white commentators or public figures, but they are influential enough to mask how isolating and marginalising this form of politics can be.
Although to be honest it says that 'My people are doomed because they do not acknowledge me. You priests have refused to acknowledge me and have rejected my teaching, and so I reject you and will not acknowledge your sons as my priests." so not really applicable.The Good Book says "People are destroyed for a lack of knowledge"
Many in IT sector that I know of. At least 5 in last year at a client I worked last year. Back then, there was actually a muted celebration when 2 gentlemen left for aussie shores. It should be interesting how they adapt their arrogance in oz.I must be the only one who does not know of any families who are leaving.
