    Well I think it's unfortuante that Mugabe came into power. The problem is no one like to be ruled by foreigners.
    Fortune had nothing to do it, it was inevitable. Africa is still at the tribal level humanity started at many thousands of years ago. They've been killing each other since the dawn of time. What made it worse was that whites did their ''let's make a country with a ruler'' thing they used to do with their colonies then sold them modern weapons after they left. There are a few countries here and there that are somewhat stable and prosperous by non-western standards but they are the exception. It's a shame because many african countries are incredibly rich in many ways but tribal ways and corruption ruins everything. You can't do a ''Norway'' (invest the natural resources of a nation in its people ) if your country is basically an overgrown tribe from 10.000 BC.

    This is just another example of how bigoted and racist the Rhodes Must Fall campaign is. The past is the past, deal with it and move forwards to a better future, not one that divides people further.

    "Because of colonialism"


    The guy forgot that it was the white people he's so racist towards that actually freed the slaves dying in the hundreds of thousands.

    To be honest I don't tip people either. But thats just because I am stingy. Would she have cried if that was the reason?


    And why the hell are people giving this girl so much money?!

    Totally agree but you can't just dismiss historical events because 'the past is the past', it is important we do remember what happened so we see how far we've gone and gain an appreciation for the world we live in.

    He didn't say we should dismiss it, we just said that it wasn't necessary bringing it up over a simple thing like tipping waitresses

    Is the reasoning made up?
    Or
    Did he say I refuse because so and so?

    Maybe it's like the American system where waiters only get paid about £2 an hour or something so they get most of their wage from tips?

    Are you suggesting that his behaviour would have been fine if he had done it in a country where tips make up a smaller proportion of the pay of the waiter?

    I'm not suggesting anything, just trying to come up with an explanation why the tips are so large :facepalm:

    The waitress, as the article says, did not get a tip (through the racism of the nasty man under discussion - who says blacks cannot be racist?) but was sent gifts amounting to £4,000 by well-wishers who heard about it.

    Oh my bad, I didn't read the article properly, I thought that was what she usually got in tips hence my comment about tips and the American system

    Why did they single her out? Was she the owner of all the land? A bit stupid if you ask me, what is one white waitress supposed to do? Instead of denying one waitress her potential wage there was at least 1000 things they could have done instead.

    Why was she crying though? I don't get it. Surely being a waitress she must have come across nasty customers before?

    Because they are vindictive racists with an extreme political agenda rather like that of Robert Mugabwe.

    It took place in Cape Town, South Africa.

    That explains it

    Mugawbe is hated even by his own people; I know this because I have a friend from Zimbabwe who can't go back because he said something against Mugabwe and then he had to leave the country.

    In all fairness though, Africa was there's originally. I'm not excusing this racism but it's not like they don't have a fair point

    That rather ignores the historical fact that black Africans have never been homogeneous and continue to be tribal, as evidenced by massacres and inter-racial trouble all over the continent.

    This particular individual (judging solely by his name and point of origin) is a Zulu, and the Zulu were historically the most warlike, aggressive and colonialist of peoples imaginable who had no solidarity with their black brothers in Africa, rather the opposite.

    He is a hypocrite and a racist, and probably ambitious to be the next Mugabwe.
