NVDL: It's interesting when a black man extends a hand to the Afrikaners he is now labelled 'racist'. Mandela would be turning in his grave. Hang on, he's still alive. Imagine if Helen Zille was chastised by 'white' constituents for doing a Zulu dance (I saw just that on TV recently and thought it was great) or singing something in an African language.
It turns out that the more racist your political party, the better your chance of winning. Why? Because South Africans may pretend to be a happy rainbow nation, but when they vote, their racist hearts beat ME FOR MY KIND OF PEOPLE. Sadly, it;s the same political schpiel - tell the people what they want to hear, get voted into power, then continue to serve yourself and the elites.
Zille seems to be a true humanitarian and moral. I hope we'll see her come into power at some stage. That would be a reveral of what has happened in the USA this year. I don't believe South Africans are nearly that sophisticated, democratic or moral to do that. Some are, but not nearly enough, and I fear, not enough to make a difference.
