Ask Jon Stewart if he is white or Sammy Davis if he is a Jew. Of course under a white hood everyone looks the same, even if they are not.

I would agree that Apartheid is not the worst injustice ever inflicted on Africans (or should I say Bantu?). Maybe not even the worst injustice inflicted upon them by Whites. But what I see in the little parables about the Whites, Blacks, and Lefties is that there is no mention of the Coloreds.

Now the Colored category covered a wide range of peoples, to include the Griqua and other Black Afrikaaners, peoples who were partly descended from early Afrikaaner settlers, and partly from Black Africans, who adopted the Afrikaans language, were members of the Nederduits Gereformde Kerke (Hope I spelled that right), and had a culture quite similar to their Afrikaaner cousins. They even trekked up onto the high Veldt under Adam Kok III.

Treating them as less than White was the great failure of Apartheid and for me underscores the fact that it was, at its base, Jim Crow dressed up in geographic terminology. If was not that the Black Africans were underdeveloped, but rather that a regime claiming to want the best for White Africans failed to grant equal status to even the mixed-bloods who had met them half-way.

If 32 Battalion had been around in the Boer War, perhaps South Africa's history would be different. But it wasn't. Let's hope that Mandela's legacy endures long enough for all sides to become comfortable with each other. No one cried for the Volga Germans either.

I wear no white hood, nor am I a bad person. I have a pretty good, clear headed mind that understands history and cultures. Yes, I do post on a racist website, as defined by supposedly "non-racists". That argument is most commonly used against conservatives, people who will not line up and follow politically correct protocol. If you disagree with a liberal, the liberal will call you a racist.

Nevermind. We are a bit off topic here. I doubt this topic is recoverable.

Interesting, and quite true. Forgot momentarily about the Coloreds. The Apartheid version of what previously had been; and still is to varying degrees, the USA version of "The One Drop Rule". Guess Who would be a perfect applicable example. Yep. Him.

Some of you pretend that South Africa was the center of racism in the west. It was not, it existed all throughout the European nations and colonies. When those practices were ended in more stable areas of the western world, the white South Africans were left behind to take the blame. Apartheid was a result of the end of the colonial era. It was not a result of anything the white people of South Africa did themselves. They inherited an impossible situation.
