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.

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
