South Africa - Beacon of Tolerance?

South Africa's last white president, F.W. De Klerk, has spoken out against the continued treatment of South African racial minorities (whites, Indians, mixed-race people) as second-class citizens.

South Africa is frequently held up by the left as being pretty much as close to an ideal society as it is possible to get. Figures like Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu are lionised in a manner which the left normally reserves for Islamic terrorists. And yet it is a society whose economy is collapsing, and where crime (commonly directed against white people by black people) has soared totally out of control.

I increasingly suspect that where South Africa has gone, Britain (and western Europe as a whole) will soon follow. It is of course true that the historical situation in South Africa is very different from the historical situation in Britain. However, in both Britain and South Africa (and Rhodesia/Zimbabwe for that matter) we have a situation where white people are commonly regarded by non-whites as being evil perpetrators, and, to one degree or another, legitimate targets. And, while whites have always been a minority in South Africa, it increasingly seems only a matter of time before we are (by our own choice) a minority here too. If and when that day comes, it's not going to be pleasant. Of course, we're possibly going to be even worse off than whites in South Africa, because of the added complication of Islam.

Postscript: The other day I discovered, via The Sectarian Strand, this blog: Why South Africa Sucks, which, in its own words "chronicles the slide of a once magnificent, thriving First World country into that of a crime ravaged, Stalinist turd world hell hole". I'm adding it to the 'International' section of the blogroll.

If you would like to read some more good articles on the sad decline of South Africa, and in particular the slow genocide of the Boers, might I also recommend Ilan Mercer.

Thanks for drawing my attention to Ilana Mercer's blog. I'll certainly look into it.

Actually, it's one of those blogs I'd heard about quite often, but, for some reason, had never got round to reading.
