I went to school in the old apartheid South Africa. I was in an English school and all my subject were taught to me in English. We had to learn Afrikaans as a second language and if you failed either English or Afrikaans then you failed the year. They were very strict about it. You also had to learn one of the local African languages. What was idiotic about learning one of the African languages was that in primary school we were taught Zulu and when we get to high school we had to learn Xhosa. Learning Afrikaans was a complete waste of time as it is just Dutch slang and is a dying language. I would have much rather preferred to have studies Spanish or Chinese. South African TV is basically American TV. The same goes for the music but when it comes to the English Language then the schools taught the English speaking children British English. I left South Africa ten years ago because of the high crime rate. I simply felt that South Afica had swoped one racist apartheid government for another. The ANC is not what Nelson Mandela had in mind. I went home to visit my sister and three brothers for the first two years after leaving but for the last eight years I simply do not go home becuase I have a family of my own now and feel that it is not safe. A women is raped every 26 seconds and don't get me started on the murder and crime rate. Is South Africa becoming another Zimbabwe? That happened a long time ago. I used to hold my head up high and say with pride in my heart that I am South African but today I am very ashamed to tell anyone my nationality. I do not lie about it but I am not proud of it.

I read something about this the other day, it doesn't seem to be getting much media attention which I don't understand.

 

It sounds like S.A is doing what Zimbabwe did though, although why they'd want to repeat that mistake is beyond me. The govt encourages the native people to kill the white farmers and steal their land so the land is back in native hands, drive out the white oppressor and all that. But the people who now control the land aren't farmers and so after the first harvest season finishes with no crops harvested there are huge food shortages, the economy is fucked and it just gets worse from there.

How about a one time trade.  Europe takes all the South African whites back, and in exchange Africa takes all the African migrants back?

Trump-ster's reply ... in style:

 

https://www.yahoo.com/news/trump-says-asked-pompeo-look-south-african-la...

 

Trump wants Pompeo to study 'killing of farmers' in South Africa

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Wednesday he had asked Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to study South African "land and farm seizures" and the "killing of farmers", prompting Pretoria to accuse Trump of stoking racial divisions.

Trump's comments inflamed an already high-octane debate over land in South Africa, a country that remains deeply racially divided and unequal nearly a quarter of a century after Nelson Mandela swept to power at the end of apartheid.

The rand currency dropped more than 1.5 percent against the U.S. dollar in early trade on Thursday after Trump's tweet had circulated in South Africa, before trimming its losses.

"I have asked Secretary of State @SecPompeo to closely study the South Africa land and farm seizures and expropriations and large scale killing of farmers," Trump said on Twitter.

The tweet appeared to be a response to a Fox News report on Wednesday that focused on South Africa's land issue and murders of white farmers.

South African President Cyril Ramaphosa's spokeswoman said Trump was "misinformed" and the foreign ministry would seek clarification from the U.S. Embassy in Pretoria.

"South Africa totally rejects this narrow perception which only seeks to divide our nation and reminds us of our colonial past," a tweet from South Africa's official government account said.

Ramaphosa announced on Aug. 1 that the ruling African National Congress (ANC) plans to change the constitution to allow the expropriation of land without compensation, as whites still own most of South Africa's territory.

Ramaphosa has said any measures would not hit economic growth or food security. No land has been "seized" since the reform plans were announced, the ANC says.

"It is regrettable that the tweet is based on false information," South Africa's foreign affairs minister, Lindiwe Sisulu, said.

Far-left opposition firebrand, Julius Malema, who has led calls for the seizure of white-owned land, told Trump to keep out of the debate. "We want to send a strong message to the U.S. to stay out of South Africa. You have caused enough problems in Africa," he told journalists.

The U.S. State Department was not immediately available for comment.

Afriforum, which mostly champions white people's rights in South Africa, welcomed Trump's announcement.

"Everyone in South Africa should therefore hope that the pressure from the USA will lead to the ANC reconsidering the disastrous route that they want to take SA on," AfriForum's CEO, Kallie Kriel, said.

He added that Trump's comment came just three months after the organization sent a delegation to the United States to brief Fox News presenter Tucker Carlson, and the Cato Institute think tank, on the situation in South Africa.

VIOLENT CRIME

Violent crime is a serious problem across South Africa and 47 farmers were killed in 2017-18, according to statistics from AgriSA, an association of agricultural associations. However the same figures show that farm murders are at a 20-year low.

Since the end of apartheid in 1994, the ANC has followed a "willing-seller, willing-buyer" model under which the government buys white-owned farms for redistribution to blacks.

Progress has been slow and most South Africans believe something has to be done to accelerate change, providing it does not hurt the economy or stoke unrest.

"Reforming the land distribution and ownership will be good for South Africa," said political analyst Nic Borain.

"That there will be instability and worries about property rights is inevitable, but we don't expect that the government will act in a way that radically destabilizes investor security."

Trump's tweet came days after it was announced that his wife, Melania, would travel to Africa in October for her first major solo international trip as first lady.

In January, South Africa protested to the U.S. Embassy in Pretoria about reported remarks by Trump that some immigrants from Africa and Haiti came from "shithole" countries.

A:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
