If you were to walk on the streets of one of the major cities in South Africa, it would be difficult to distinguish it from many cities across the Western world. When you see people simply going about their day-to-day lives, you might even think that, 23 years after the end of apartheid, this country has become a multicultural success story.
However, this veneer of normality conveniently disguises an onslaught by the government, radical political parties and activists against a minority group, based solely on the color of their skin. The onslaught comes mostly in the shape of discriminatory, race based, employment laws, of which there are now more in place than during the
entire course of apartheid.
While the greed of incompetent government officials have decimated South Africa's economy, they discovered early into their governance that they could redirect the anger of their largely impoverished voter base,
by shifting all blame from themselves onto the minority.
It is important to note here that, in spite of discrimination imposed upon them by the government, the minority have remained relatively prosperous through ingenuity, perseverance and hard work.
It is therefore easy for the government to convince the disgruntled masses, which they have made dependent upon an ever growing state, that the minority have remained prosperous by somehow “stealing” from the majority.
Ironically it is the minority who disproportionately bears the cost of the government buying votes
from the majority through welfare programs.
On the flip side of the minority's prosperity coin, the discriminatory labor laws, wildly increasing government spending and ill conceived regulations have driven large numbers of the minority into
abject poverty and into squatter camps.
Once in these squatter camps, these people have very little chance of escaping poverty since they won't find work, thanks to the unjust labor laws. They also receive very little, if any, government assistance and are largely dependent upon churches, charities and private individuals to provide basic necessities, such as food and clothing.
In recent years, efforts to dehumanize & demonize the country's minority have been stepped up
to highly volatile levels. Radical, communistic party leaders openly & publicly call for the
dispossession and even the slaughter of the minority.
The current president of South Africa, Jacob Zuma, has also actively been taking part in the incitement of racial hatred by constantly blaming the minority for all the problems facing the country.
This man, who miraculously had more than 700 cases of corruption against him dropped by
prosecuting authorities, openly calls in parliament for the confiscation of minority owned assets,
without any compensation.
They are driving farmers off of their land.
South Africa's government has also been working fervently for the past 23 years to wipe the minority out of the country's history. The tools they've been using include, countless province, city and street name changes, altering the history children are taught at school, allowing radicals to demolish statues and publicly prostrating anyone who dares say there has been at least some benefit to the presence of the minority in the country.
This marginalization of the minority, in combination with constant, extremist, political rhetoric,
is rapidly pushing the country closer and closer towards civil collapse.
It doesn't take an anthropological scientist to predict that, if prominent leaders incite racial hatred in a suffering population, the results will inevitably be catastrophic. As such, South Africa has seen an upsurge of racially motivated assaults, rapes and murders perpetrated against the minority.
Victims of such crimes often report racial epithets uttered by the perpetrators and the fact that theft rarely accompanies such crimes, further points to alternate motives. A highly inept police force has caused South Africans to have to fend for their own safety and the racial component of many violent crimes are all but completely ignored, denied or even covered up by the government and both the state run and corporate media.
In the USA the main stream media give wall to wall coverage of the slightest whiff of discrimination against a minority and even if discrimination is proven to be false, they will continue reporting on it as if it were true. However, since the minority in South Africa does not fit the media's definition of a minority,
their silence on this actual institutionalized discrimination, is deafening.
You see, in South Africa, the minority happens to be white.
