The American and Australian whites decimated the native populations in their countries. The whites who went to Africa actually tried to live alongside the native population there. I believe this is because they were mainly dutch who were liberal for their times. The Dutch saw the black people as someone who needed their superior Dutch help (racist i know). the Irish, British, French and Spanish who went to the America’s saw the native people as pests, in the way and backwards. they tried everything to get rid of them, made up reasons to push them south and into another part of America. The Spanish pushed theirs upwards. Thats why USA, Argentina and chili have so few Natives. Those countries are now run with western values and law.

If you have such a great president and if Mandella was such a great president why are there still townships, full of poverty, crime and terrible conditions and why are both Black & Whites living like this. And dont even go there when it comes to white farmers being slaughtered by Blacks.

That way, the blacks could return to their homeland in Africa and the SA whites could live here in America with more people of European descent.

Your response is the exact image of what the previous comments were saying; this just proves that with the new south africa comes just another new attitude. The persecution and starvation they found in their own lands? It was the age of discovery! Your speaking like your barely educated.

I quote

“You fill Isreal with white European jew converts so you could claim the biblical stories and paint Jesus as a white man, and therefore make god into a white man.”

Jesus was a dark palestinian at the time and therefore was not white, acknowledged. European Jew converts? The Jewish population in Israel fled from their European countries because of persecution and at no time were given the chance to convert because the ruling authorities wanted to class them as Jewish.

But this convert idea is nonsense, for pitty sake the war with the palestinians is because of religion; they would not let themselves be converted by another.

Try reading a history book or two before you start judging and abusing it.

The pyramids were built using slave labour as far as I know with little or no regard as to the well being of the labourers. This I believe is what the Africans of Africa are compaining about. Now you are claiming this to be achievements of your nation. Well if this is so then history is certainly repeating itself, over and over and over again. When are people going to learn that it benefits the govermnents in power when its people are fighting one another instead of looking at what is actually taking place. Do you honestly believe that the current regime actually give a hoot about the poor black, white or pink people. As long as they can keep you fighting with one another they can keep on pilfering and lining their own pockets. So what if you live in a shack or a mansion. The main objective is to keep you busy while they take it all. Just look to Zimbabwe to see a typical example of what I am saying. The country has an amazing potential but is being manipulated by politicians still blaming the British and colonialism for their problems. The fact of the matter is that if the people of Zimbabwe had worked together the country would now be an amazing success. Thanks to the political bulldust the country is in complete dis-array. Blacks blaming whites, whites blaming blacks, and politicians milking the system. Sound familair? It is about time that the people of our country start realizing that they are being played like porns in a chess match. White or Black should not be the question. The question should be why should anyone have to live a life like this? Surely we can do better. If you are looking at skin colour as means to determine what should and should not be allowed then you my friend are also a racist, maybe from the opposit camp but a racist non the less. So perhaps you should have some sympathy for those that are less fortunate than yourself irrespective of their skin colour as they are victims of a system that doesn,t really care as long as they blaming anyone but the system. South Africans wake up!! We are being played. Look forward and go forward. We only have ourselves to blame for the problems in our future.

They should be identified as a separate ethnic group with their own culture and they should be allowed to collect together to form a small White home land as a separate province with in the country of South Africa where White South Africans can go and live if they so choose. This small province would be allowed to build its own universities and schools. It could even have its own trailer parks for poor whites. This state will have seats in the South African parliament but will have control of its own borders within South Africa. It would start off with say 20,000 and grow to say 200,000 people.

Being rich in platinum, gold and diamonds amongst other resources, South Africa has become just yet another country to exploit. People pulling the real strings have no emotion toward murder and conflict as long as they can get what they want out of it by doing dealings with corrupt politicians, in fact as seen in other parts of Africa, such conditions provide an easier way to get hold of these resources.

The media which is controlled by these people will play along. The solution to this problem in my opinion is for South African home owners and land owners to conglomerate in their given areas, collectively they will find they own a large suburban area or farming area.

With a large area as mentioned there is more leverage to negotiate with foreign businesses. For instance in a suburban town, collectively, business property and suburban property owned by these groups might amount to 60% of the total town. In turn for these companies to invest in education and schools and medical centres business growth etc, these ‘micro economies’ would then cede a percentage of the total gross income of these economies and possible a small percentage of the land ownership…thereby receiving funding from a non governmental source in exchange for private ownership and still enjoying governmental obligations to the area but not reliant on them.

This concept would work even better with regards to farms where as a conglomerate could the afford tighter security. Strength in numbers. I havent thought of the nitty gritties and this and thats about it but as a defined concept I feel it could work and would uplift these communities which could later pay attention to less fortunate communities.

The comments on here prove what you really think of the black population, so why should they care what your people are going through.
The reason your forefathers left Europe was because of the persecution and starvation they faced in their own lands.
Not all of Europe was successful, Ireland was definately seen as backwards or undeveloped, and so were other countries.
As for the invention of the wheel well that never happened in Europe either. Brick house weren’t either afterall the pyramids were built from bricks in AFRICA!!. The southern Europeans IE Romans Greeks were doing 10 times better than the northern Europeans and it was the Romans that brought the wheel to England/northern Europe aswell as proper roads and brick houses the archeaologist have proven that because there are no signs of developments before the roman remains in England and that is a fact, the Dutch were not much better off either, but all white people claim these developments as there own now when a small part of Europe taught the rest of Europe. 100 years you didn’t even consider these people as white but now you do to claim their history.
The comment about 1.5 million blacks in southern Africa when the white man arrived, well there was not many more people in England back then either.
Everything that your ancestors found in Africa they destroyed or claimed were created by previous visitors IE the Benin bronzes were left by Europeans or the Chinese.
You couldn’t destroy the Pyramids so you claimed they were built by aliens, yes ALIENS!!!
You fill Isreal with white European jew converts so you could claim the biblical stories and paint Jesus as a white man, and therefore make god into a white man.
So if I cant use the computer due to the fact that the white man invented it, then you should not use your cars because the mediteranean people created the wheel and the middle easterners knew how to make use of oil( you were on steam power and coal.
