I see the article is dated November 2019. I believe COVID-19 may have changed those stats to a degree.

It is also best to work with the same sample pools, more in line with LSM, education, etc., to have a more accurate view in order to establish disparities.

Statistics SA is painting a big picture, indicating unemployment as the biggest problem. Why do we have unemployment?

Oh, sensational headlines .... gotcha.
Racial angles will always be pushed, it is also politically pushed, and the government places emphasis on correcting these disparities. The government also knows very well that COVID-19 and their lockdown broke the camel’s (economy) back hence they are now compelled to engage in enhanced RET (a policy which they said months ago is abolished).

This is why I keep on saying that the ANC must introduce the ‘end-game’ now. Then everyone can move on. Incremental empowerment increases aren’t cutting it anymore, cut to the bloody chase.

We all know the state is unwilling to support white-owned businesses under the COVID-19/lockdown circumstances and the courts agree that it must be that ‘sentiment’ constitutionally. Exclusion is already in place.

It's high time these people looked a little wider and deeper and asked sensible questions.

Why do Chileans earn more than Venezuelans?
Why do Japanese earn more than Chinese?
Why do Koreans earn more than Indians?
Why do Americans earn more than Russians?
Why do Germans earn more than Greeks?
Why do Luxembourgeoise earn more than Belgians?

Et cetera.

The more you dig into it the more it becomes apparent that the chief differences lie in the culture ... that network of values, ethics (work ethic, etc), education, family formation, legal systems, capital formation, entrepreneurial drive, etc, etc, etc. It's software, not hardware, and the history of how appropriately that software is adapted to and optimised for wealth creation and transmission across generations
