Xenophobia in South Africa: Blame white guys, the blacks have ‘internalized’ their racism

A man armed with a hatchet threatens members of the press in Johannesburg after violence between locals and immigrants in Johannesburg.

South Africa’s Apartheid regime is remembered as one of the worst crimes against humanity of the 20th century. The White monopoly capitalist system that underpinned Apartheid remains alive and well today.

White monopoly capitalism is the post-Apartheid economic system, whereby Whites continue to exert disproportional and undemocratic control over the nation’s economy, land, media and judicial system…

…The xenophobic Black-on-Black violence spreading across South Africa is a direct result of centuries of White-on-Black violence and oppression.

Franz Fanon, who was an expert on the psychology of colonial violence noted that the historical and current system of White-on-Black violence sends messages of Black inferiority that are so powerful that many Black people succumb to them, ultimately becoming defined by them.

Internalised racism, a term first coined by Black scholar W.E.B. DuBois in 1903, involves accepting a White supremacist social order that places Black people at the bottom, and adopting society’s negative stereotypes about Blacks concerning their lack of abilities, inherent violence and low intrinsic worth…

From the incredibly stupid ‘Counterpunch.’

  • Ending apartheid was a big step forward.

      Apartheid kept tribal savages like the ones in the photo from turning all of South Africa into a Stone Age shit hole. Now it’s full speed ahead into the Dark Continent.

    The whites in South Africa should have had a separate nation of their own and have let the blacks govern themselves without the aid or participation of the whites. Segregation would have been a better option since trying to integration two different races of people with their own distinct culture, values which have nothing in common (multiculturalism) never works.

    The Fucktard who wrote that column also wrote this and I quote:

    “Contrary to the Westernized popular belief that Zimbabwe is synonymous with ‘Mugabe’s dictatorship’, it is one of Africa’s most democratic states. If Robert Mugabe is indeed a dictator, he has a peculiar way of showing it: the President liberated Zimbabwe from white minority rule and established a thriving parliamentary democracy, which has held multi-party elections ever since Independence in 1980. In fact, this year at least twenty-eight political parties will contest Zimbabwe’s upcoming, general elections.”


    He also stated that Gadday’s Libya was “Africa’s MOST successful democracy”

    He works for Harvard and is truly one of the craziest stupidest nimbots in the history of people.

      You’re looking at the same basic mindset that is convinced that Cuba is a socialistic utopia and mourns the death of the Soviet Union…

      I have to wonder if there were “intellectuals” who thought that the Derg Communists were wonderful too…

    • Drunk_by_Noon

      I don’t think that “Democracy” means what he thinks it does.

    The worst thing about stereotypes is they’re true.

      It’s also the best thing.

        It’s almost like there’s some sort of connection. I wonder what it could be.

    Every tribe believes their group is the superior one. Commie diversocrats should give it a rest.

      Except that my tribe invented modern civilization.

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        And for that your tribe must be punished.

      • UCSPanther

        And the way our tribe did it was by getting to work and building the basis for it. We achieved greatness not by sitting around whining about “inequality” or throwing spears at each other willy nilly, but by hard work and thought.

        If the African people followed our lead, greatness could be theirs’, but at this time, it is too much to ask…

    I wonder if that axeman would be so willing to charge if he was confronted with an English Billhook…
