White South Africans earn six times more than black South Africans nearly two decades after the end of apartheid and much remains to be done to reduce the disparities between rich and poor, the president said after the release of the country's census.

"These figures tell us at the bottom of the rung is the black majority who continue to be confronted by deep poverty, unemployment, and inequality, despite the progress that we have made since 1994," President Jacob Zuma said of the South Africa Census 2011 released on Tuesday.

These types of figures are meaningless.

I suspect the white South Africans are better educated, for example.

Perhaps if they spent less time believing raping infants would cure AIDs and more in school they might be able to improve their lot in life.

And what, exactly, does this have to do with the U.S.?

It’s their problem.

Not ours.

So... those machete wielding ‘rebels’ who killed white farmowners can’t figure out what to do with a farm, now that they have one ?

Until Africa and the Middle East undergo a serious *civilization reformation* and rid themselves of the tribal mentality, they’ll always be 3rd world hellholes, no matter how much money is thrown at the problem.

“And more South African dwellings have TVs than refrigerators and more cellphones than electric or gas stoves, the census said.”

Shocking.

So have they figured out why white South Africans are six-times more productive and useful?

They've had approximately 3,000,000 years to do so. Maybe the accurate assumption is that they can't.

Sounds like a good second job for SUPEROBIE. I’m pretty sure they’d really, really, like him there. Probably already do. He could follow in another commies footsteps. Uncle nelson.

Helping keep mankind warm for 65 years.

Go Romney/Ryan. Blow it out!!!!!

This only relevant if the average SA white fails to outproduce the average SA black by a factor of six.
I suspect that is NOT there case.
More likely, this is going to be the basis for some oppressive legislation as the SA Government decides to follow Zimbabwe in its death spiral.

I imagine anyone who is white but not rich enough to protect themselves from blacks, died at the hands of blacks or left South Africa.

South Africa is both racist and communist. Sounds like our own “liberals” making political points in and effort to steal or as they say, transfer the wealth.

Sadly, I think you’re right. Nuke both areas (save Israel), and re-populate with civilized people.

Thanks MinorityRepublican.

Why? Isn't South Africa enough like Zimbabwe?
