“Go after a white man”
Just as the legacy of Jim Crow, the evil inflicted upon South African blacks during apartheid was an atrocity. That does not mean, however, that evil should be inflicted upon innocent whites far removed from those horrific times.
The reconciliation that former South African President Nelson Mandela hoped to achieve in the 1990s has been all-but-jettisoned. As of last week, the South African parliament voted to seize all land from white farmers without compensation, a motion largely prompted by the hateful Julius Malema, leader of the Marxist-Revolutionary Economic Freedom Party.
