Nuances clearly don't matter in your world. What with your big brush and the broad strokes you can paint.I've not insulted anyone, just brought up some things that happened in the past, seeing as the past tends to repeat itself I reasonably expect it to happen again.
EDIT: Upbringing was mostly neutral.
We should also remember that some of the claims may be legitimate. These are people who got forcibly remove to make way for white only development because the past regime preferred their servants at arms length for various reasons including claiming land they wanted to use for agriculture and so forth. Whether those people's claims are legit in the sense of being first in the south of Africa is another story altogether.It is a very small percentage of black South Africans that are trying to reclaim land that doesn't belong to them. It just happens to be the official policy of an extremely corrupt political party called the ANC. A party that has a dismal record when it comes to success, honesty and integrity. It is part of the WMC narrative that they cling to in order to remain in power at any cost.
Right, so what can we do about it?Actually the op himself seems to love dealing in the same broad strokes. Anecdotal evidence says most black people aren't interested or feel entitled to any land or other people's land. They just want to improve their lot, live and die without too much suffering. It is the unfortunate few loudmouths that seem to have elected themselves representative and speakers for the (dead) rest. Much like the OP I suppose.
Yes the small percentage of legitimate claims would have already been sorted under honest, transparent leadership that had not been too busy with its primary self-enrichment properties. Unfortunately we now have to watch as a political party which has proven itself to be corrupt to its very core stirs further racial disunity in its desperate attempt to remain in power at all costs.We should also remember that some of the claims may be legitimate.

Ah the old benevolent tyrant argument. Like coffee in the morning. Not going to repeat the molesting uncle paraphrase here I think.Yeah they needed just another 4000 years to finished construction of their first double story house, all they needed.
You are aware that none of what you just said does anything more than whine, why not instead try to invalidate my statement?Ah the old benevolent tyrant argument. Like coffee in the morning. Not going to repeat the molesting uncle paraphrase here I think.
You'll grow up some day to learn that the world isn't as black and white as you perceive it through your distorted lenses
Property prices will fall to zero too, we're full steam ahead towards the socialist dreamIn South Africa a lot of people believe in getting everything for free. It's so bad that 65% of our people sit on social wellfare and complain why some services are not provided free. Now for the land, its not the land they want (some may) but it's the free housing that now gives them wealth. A lot will end up just selling it. Some are even demanding that the government must build them 2.5 million rand houses free. (District Six).
But yes, most of Cape Town or the Western Cape was under previous Khoisan rule, but never under the other tribes that now claim they want the land. They merely want it free as a tradeable asset.
However in comes junk status, and this will affect many tax payers. in about 2000 or there about the prime lending rate was about 16%. A current bond of R1 million would cost you R9485 pm at the current rate. Expect to cough up an extra R5000 more at those rates. But then the average houseprice in the western cape is R3.5 million now. So well an extra R15k plus per month, is going to be a bitter pill for anyone to swallow, especially with the rand dropping and making everything more expensive too. Now credit cards everything shoots up. To compensate for loss of income the government will possibly have to push taxes by upto 60% even. Face it for what you get from your taxes (very little), you will suffer more. So most will sell what they have and move. Another 10-20% of the income tax payers gone and then a real disaster strikes. You can kiss it all goodbye. You will have Greece 101 and pensions gets slashed, and inflation running away.
Not worth it, you're too close minded. That's why I am so dismayed because you're young and already hold to such fervent beliefs. You're like a zealot, no convincing the like.You are aware that none of what you just said does anything more than whine, why not instead try to invalidate my statement?
Wow you come across as an angry little man....Do you actually believe this or just posting garbage for a reaction? Something to jerk off to later I'm guessing.
You believe whites are being segregated?
In South Africa?
In the present times?
I fail to see how any of the apartheid strategies or policies from the past regime are currently present and at play against whites in the country as it stands today.
Your views do make for some good chuckling though
IMO the OP's question has much relevance. The land isn't the blacks to claim as theirs. Blacks were just as much invaders as whites.
So much for this goddamn rainbow nation. What a delusional notion.
