    I'm not denying colonisation had a big part to play in making that country the bread basket of Africa.

    I suspect though you would deny it's the anti-colonisation that has turned it into a basket case.
    Lol. So colonisation would have helped them eh? Struggling to have access to basic human rights while their colonisers fed off their backs would have prevented all that eh?

    Lol you're laughable.

    Perhaps I am missing something, but weren't they a terrorist organisation?

    Its members
    -It engaged in many gun battles with police, including ambushing officers
    -Many members were jailed for a bomb conspiracy
    -Some advocated violent revolution and urban guerrilla warfare
    -Torture murdered members suspected of being police informants
    -Members of different factions assassinated each other

    E.g. at one point, it was led by Eldridge Cleaver, who (after being arrested of rape and assault), wrote a number of books, including where he acknowledges committing acts of rape, stating that he initially raped black women in the ghetto "for practice" and then embarked on the serial rape of white women. He described these crimes as politically inspired, motivated by a genuine conviction that the rape of white women was "an insurrectionary act".

    Also, her dancers call for justice for the police shooting of Mario Woods, who had stabbed someone with a knife, and refused to drop it when confronted by police

    And before anyone says that the ends justified these means, how is this different from the Islamist terrorists, who also believe that their jihad is justified?
    And Gandhi hated black people. People pick and choose to remember history how it suits them.

    It's not about numbers, dufus. It's about WHY they were killed. A lot of unnecessary force is being used on them as opposed to their white counterparts. Good to know you're justifying being killed over a traffic stop.
    I'm not justifying anything. Your comment is an ad hominem, a strawman, and without support of evidence. It is utterly intellectually invalid.

    Do you have evidence to support the proposition that blacks are treated with more violence than whites by law enforcement? I doubt that you do.
    Furthermore, I hope that I have clearly demonstrated that whites are significantly more often victims of killings by law enforcement.

    A simple search on Liveleak will show you that traffic stops don't always end well for whites either. You are ignorant and intellectually dishonest. If you have a rebuttal with significant evidence to support it, I would be happy to read it. If not, please go and spread your muck elsewhere, or at least don't fling it at me.

    Yes we managed to turn the place into the bread basket of Africa

    This could have been maintained but revenge seems to be more important than feeding themselves.

    But wait who is it they will turn to when they are starving and dying through malnutrition .

    But it'll be OK as we'll hold another charity event and a raise a few million in an attempt to prevent people from dying of starvation and their own stupidity

    Idk who/what they are. Neither do I gaf. The point of the matter is that, basic human rights should not be a privilege and sometimes you have to do what you have to do to get it.
    So you bring up Madiba and you actually know nothing about him. So would you justify using bombs on civilians to achieve that goal?

    I have a very strong feeling OP is white. White folk never remove their earplugs or their blindfolds.
    Hahaa loool you can tell he is.. Most likely studied Histrory at uni and now knows about every political movement on earth. I just stopped reading the nonsense on the thread after a while. A lot of them had done zero research beyond Wiki and then tried to tell me about Black History 😂😂😴

    Difference in opinions. The only reason why I'm lead to believe that you think it was better before than now is because you are white. It was better for the likes of YOU.

    Lol because I'm not South African. I love South Africa, South Korea, Italy. But that does not mean I must stay there forever. (I'll ignore the grotesque undertones of your petty question).

    So, you're suggesting that stupidity is associated with race? Or only one race, e.g. white?
    No it's the people who are making a fuss out of something that for once DOESN'T involve them, in this case one may think it's white people. You guys are the ones who are making Beyonce's song and video or homage to Black Panthers seem like it's soo bad. it's not about you so why y'all complaining smh

    It is not better for anyone, the whites are still the richest, the blacks the poorest and politicians still corrupt.
