    It's stupid. Worked well in Zimbabwe - not.
    It's just politics. The ANC has seriously screwed up the economy in South Africa and Zuma with his corruption gave it a boot in the guts as well. It's a mess there so a nice little distraction like this works for the ANC. It won't work in practice.

    Might makes right...who is to say otherwise?

    I guess there will be a exodus of white farmers soon. Where will they move to?

    No, no, no! You surely need to undergo political-correctness reorientation! When Whites crap on Blacks -- THAT is racism! When Blacks crap on Whites, THAT is "justice"....

    Consider: All of Sub-Saharan Africa was almost entirely Black until about the time of the Renaissance, when the first White explorers showed up. What did the indigenous Black population do with "their" land for all those thousands of years? They lived very happily in the Stone Age, with shacks and huts for homes, universal slavery, slash-and-burn agriculture, and by putting "bush-meat" on the table to keep from starving. Then the Whites arrived and everything changed....

    From the OP's RT link:
    According to a recent study, black South Africans constitute 79 percent of the population, but directly own only 1.2 percent of the country’s rural land. Meanwhile, white South Africans, who constitute 9 percent of the country’s population, directly own 23.6 percent of its rural land, and 11.4 percent of land in towns and cities, according to the Land Audit report.

    ------ -------------------------

    Obvious question to me ..... who owns the other 75.2% of the rural land? The government?

    Seems like there's plenty of land available to give blacks some without taking from the whites.

    So we can just grab some popcorn and watch South Africa become unable to feed itself.

    Brilliant!!!!

    A few years back, many Afrikaans were moving to Georgia. Considering Georgia is surrounded by Muslims, it's understandable why they would want Christian and hard working farmers moving there. Of course there might also be a civil war in S. Africa, but I doubt it because of outside interference.

    Russia has a homestead act in order to develop Siberia, so it's giving away free land. Up until now it's been limited to Russian citizens, but now they are willing to take in all people of Russian descent and Slavs who want to retain their heritage and identity. I have a feeling they will take in Afrikaans as well, since they don't pose a threat.

    Of course the climate is not exactly the same as the Afrikaans were accustomed to, but the land is free.

    They knew it was coming... Julius said no one is going to lose their home...the rest of your property is another story entirely. All land will belong to the government (hey the Russians on the site must love this idea - communism) and everyone will have a lease on his property... unused land will then be distributed to those who have none.

    And South Africa descends further into hell.

    Running a country is hard. You need whites.

    I hope the whites destroy everything before they leave the S. Africa. Leave the blacks exactly what they had when white people first got there. Absolutely nothing but slavery, wars, starvation, and their "stone age". It was all that black African society was ever capable of in the first place.

    This is what happens when you try to do postcolonialism in a capitalist framework. Swapping the colors of the people on the chattel/factory model does not undo the damage in the slightest.

    The ANC and black South Africans have already been doing that.They don't need no help.

    Look at what happened in Rhodesia when whites were forced out at gun point. Well those whites who weren't murdered and raped yet.
    Rhodesia became Zimbabwe and Mugabe and his fellow terrorist commie comrades did an excellent job of destroying that country where it became the biggest basket case in Sub Sahara Africa.

    Question #1. How did the whites end up owning sooo much land?

    Question #2. How much of the land was simply conquered or stolen from native black tribes?

    Question #3. It is immoral or unjust to take back stolen property without compensating the thief?

    Did the white farmers offer compensation when they seized it from blacks (who owned it all originally)?

    Black tribes had already reached the pinnacle of their civilization in the "Stone Age". They lived very much as they had for over 15,000 years, practicing primitive warfare, slavery, slash-and-burn agriculture, and living little "better than the beasts they killed for food.

    Then, a few hundred years ago, here came White Europeans, and a few wanderers from the Middle East and India. What ALWAYS has happened when a vastly more evolved, superior civilization comes into contact with a lesser one...?

    Here's a book that would greatly improve your understanding of who and what mankind is, how mankind evolved in the past 50,000 years, and where we're going: "A Troublesome Inheritance: Genes, Race, and Human History", by Nicholas Wade. Link:: https://www.amazon.com/Troublesome-...147&sr=8-1&keywords=a+troublesome+inheritance

    Spoiler: No, Wade does not propose that White Europeans are the most advanced race in the world! It's the East-Asian 'Orientals" who have the greatest intelligence, along with some Jewish groups! :nana:

    Yadda, yadda -- BUT, I noticed that you did not even try to refute the point I made, based on actual history, science, and fact that, "Black tribes had already reached the pinnacle of their civilization in the "Stone Age".

    And you sure as hell aren't about to admit that a bunch of opportunistic South African Blacks aren't DEAD WRONG in confiscating property from other people -- just because they are White! It's people like YOU and that bunch of Black gangsters in South Africa who turn my blood to ice. When you can be that hateful and unfair, anything goes. But remember that -- ANYTHING GOES....

    I will take this as a no they did not compensate them. I don't care about racial nonsense used to defend that behavior, might does not make right.

    You just argued it was perfectly ok to take land from blacks...how can you argue its wrong to do so against whites? Why does being white and black matter in this regard. If you are going to argue that when one group is superior then it has the right to take what it wants from inferiors, well blacks are doing exactly the same thing to whites.

    The information that the new Black South African regime is putting out is that Whites will have their properties confiscated without compensation... period. Yeah... THAT'S REAL RACISM!

    African blacks have never advanced far enough to be able to know how to run a country except with brutal police forces loyal to the dictator. Black minds mostly know how to conduct tribal wars and conquest. That is true in Africa, and you see it in turf wars where blacks rule parts of American cities too. Blacks have totally ruined every country where they have taken over and that is so obvious in Africa. Now they have taken over South Africa which used to be the one place in the whole southern part of Africa that wasn't a shithole. This is what inclusiveness and diversity leads to after it gets entrenched in a society.

    They took it form black people without compensation either. So it's tit for tat.
    It's not like in Israel where Jews ethnic cleanse Palestinians or something.
