The Afrikaner Shanty Towns Of South Africa

finbarr O’reilly of Reuters reports: “At least 450,000 white South Africans, 10 percent of the total white population, live below the poverty line and 100,000 are struggling just to survive, according to civil organisations and largely white trade union Solidarity. South Africa’s population is about 50 million. …”

“South Africa’s unskilled whites find themselves on the wrong side of history, gaining little sympathy from those who perceive them as having profited unfairly during the brutal apartheid years.

Trade union Solidarity says there are around 430,000 whites who live in squatter camps. Around the capital Pretoria alone there are 80 squatter settlements. There are over 2,000 much larger black squatter camps across South Africa.

Formerly comfortable Afrikaners recently forced to live on the fringes of society see themselves as victims of ‘reverse-apartheid’ that they say puts them at an even greater disadvantage than the millions of poor black South Africans.

id say more like 30 % now for whites-worse for blacks too

"as highly skilled and qualified people with years of experience were replaced by people who were black but lacked the necessary qualifications or experience."

Well, So. Africa has the same economic model the U.S. does. That makes for winners/losers in the society-at-large. He who controls political power...controls that to a large degree.

Undoubtably, the unskilled blacks worked cheaper..A drive to the bottom wage is endemic to our system, isn't it? Better-paid whites probably lost legal protections for their employment.

So. Africa is the ONLY nation that spells out and very clearly guarantees personhood for corporations in its Constitution.....done so with the advice of the U.S. when the new government came to power. Unlike the U.S.,... corporate governance in So. Africa is openly discussed.......it's the constitutional model for the nation. It isn't hidden.

It's become the model here too ....we just pretend it isn't.

Well, So. Africa adopted a constitution that legalizes,.. codifies as the supreme law of the land... corporate governance. Not much we can do about that except observe it and view our own futures.

They'll either change it, or they won't. It depends on how much increasing poverty the majority of So. Africans are willing to entail before they rise up and burn their constitution..... and write a new one..
