    If they stole their land so did every white settler in North America by the same "logic". Would you have a problem with Native Americans "taking back" property from all the white landowners in the US?

    According to Lekota, land ownership was not even a concept until white colonists arrived in the Cape and Natal, when they introduced title deeds. Land ownership started here, and has ultimately made it possible for anyone to acquire land today.
    Before title deeds, land was simply occupied, Lekota said, and the black majority who now claim the land as theirs were not even the original inhabitants, having come from the “great lakes” to the north. “Even when the land was taken under the 1913 Land Act, nobody could just say ‘I’m white I must get a piece of land’, they had to buy it,” Lekota added.

    Of one thing there is little doubt...once the "white man's" land has been confiscated and redistributed, SA will eventually no longer be the rare economic success story that it's always been in the lower 2/3 of the continent. It will soon become just another sh!thole like all the other former colonies have become.

    I had really hoped SA would not devolve into this. I was in Zimbabwe about 15 years ago on official U.S. business and it was criminal what Mugabwe was doing a) to the whites (forcibly seizing property and murdering) and b) to the black population (as he played the Stalin gambit: overseeing factional violence that left all opponents weakened from the "infighting").

    It's amazing how Obama continues to show up with/at (or court) people/regimes any sane person can see are - simply - evil and yet the Left and its mouthpieces (CNN, MSNBC, several "contributors" here on SoMD.com, etc.) continue to do nothing but play the Leni Riefenstahl.

    Look at Zimbabwe (formerly, Rhodesia). THE economic engine of southern Africa (until, of course, sanctions). [[I am NOT advocating, justifying, or in any way supporting the eventual apartheid nature of the regime; simply the slide from powerhouse to dismal sh#thole. And no, Rhodesia's prosperity wasn't based on slave labor....]]

    Btw, wrt other posts in this thread, the "Whites taking Native American land" as a parallel is, at best, a farce. It doesn't even enjoy the slightest of similarities. If we are looking for a more accurate parallel (or parallels), Stalin's seizure of the Kulaks' farms in the 1920s/30s would be better (as would any forced nationalization by any (national) socialist government - like Venezuela currently, Argentina under Peron, Lenin in the 1920s, etc.))
