    handing the land back, you say......

    Tiger32, you mean the Bushmen, RIGHT??? I sincerely hope you do, because they are the true "First Nation" of Southern Africa. not the Zulu, not the whites, not ET. The Bushmen. You should have been around when those barbaric masses came down from mid Africa and invaded the region.... The Boers where the first and only nation that was successful in standing there ground against these masses way back then. these masses had one thing on there minds,(well ok, there king's mind) conquer and kill all that moves.

    You do have to give it to the Masses though, they where dealing with a nation that later on handed the Queen her ass in her own hand-bag, twise allmost, At a time in which the British Army was revered to be the best in the world, by a very long shot...... I mean look at what they ( the British Army) had to do the last time, in order to "SAVE FACE".... concentration Camps, and Genocide, to the order of magnitude that would have made Hitler look the other way....

      This has nothing to do with the hottentots, their migration from central africa down south should not in anyway deflect from the fact that Europeans migrated from Europe, killed the indigenous people and subgugated them for centuries based on the misconception of the superiority of their race.

      This is point I believe my right thinking brother was making in the first place. Welcome back Tiger!!!

        alot of countries were robbed by the british. they are master thieves. when british arrived in india, they were the richest. when they left,t hey were the poorest. the british also robbed China. the british wanted all the Chinese goods, and had nothing to offer anyone, so they started selling opium. when China didnt buy opium, the british attacked, and robbed them. this trend was seen throughout the world, from america to australia. its funny how today, it is white people that are selling natural resources to China, when it should be the black australian aborigines who should be deciding who gets to sell what. it is an insult to humanity that white people are selling natural resources of australia. with that said, this doesnt just apply to british people. just about every white country has robbed a richer country, and turned them into poverty. the only way white countries are able to keep rich is by purposely, and continuously trying to crash other countries economies. even countries like japan cant escape the wrath of the white menace. in 1990, the usa forced japan to sign the plaza accord, sending them into a 20yr recesion and ecnomic decline. today, the usa is trying to do the same thing to China. the white people also are keeping africa poor based on what they had done decades ago, which was to specifically draw up african borders so that tribal conflict would be inevitable. the whites are also doing their dodgy imf and world bank loans in africa today to rob of africa of its natural resources. the west also props up countless dictators around the world such as suharto, and amin. theres no doubt that the british were and are robbing africa. this trend can be seen across the world. without robbery, they would be poorer than any given african country. the whites have nothing to offer the world other than chaos, sabatoge, deceit, contempt, and violence. theres no doubt in my mind that if africa, or any continent never came in contact with white people, they would be much better off in every way imaginable. the native americans were very respectable people. the white people are not.

          Ethiopia should be significantly better off than other subSaharan countries if colonialism was so much at fault as it was hardly or not colonised at all. It seems to lie rather in something inherant in the people of Africa. When the first European explorers arrived the state of development was not much and there are hardly any permanent historical African buildings from before colonial times. On the other hand I realize that there were a lot of negatives with colonialism too but lets see the whole picture.

              It all began in 1885 when the European powers met in Berlin to carve up Africa into colonies to be added to their empires. By the beginning of the twentieth century the entire continent – with the exception of Ethiopia and Liberia was in the hands of European nations. Notably, Britain, France and Germany took the lead. This imperial drive was fuelled by fear of whom would be looked in combat in the WW1, 14 years later.

              In the north, the British were allowing the Egyptians to run their internal affairs, retaining control only over the Suez Canal and of military and foreign affairs. Britain, however allowed no real reforms in Egypt fearing this would lead to political unrest. A bone of contention emerged between Britain and Egypt concerning who ruled in the Sudan, which had been ruled by Egypt. To block French penetration of the region the British had expanded into the Sudan in the 19th century.

              Yes, it was been robbed by every nation except the Boer nation, that was only farmer.

              For paradox the black people hate the only euro nation that never commit genocide.

              The international press have build the terror of aparteid, where a famous Mandela still alive at 90 and more !!!!

              But if apartaid prison was so hard, why M. was (and is) live in late age ?

              In the same time black dictators exterminated whole populations, but for the world the evil is the Afrikares.

              Finally U are reason, France, D,, GB, Belgium, Portugal and my Italy have done genocide.

                People all over the world tend to put Mandela on a pedestal.
                But he was just in the right place at the right time, when the SA govt had already decided to put an end to apartheid - so he got the glory as the ultimate 'freedom fighter'.
                He was the president for 4 years, while infrastructure that the white government put in place was still functioning. Then he retired in luxury to bask in all the attention and hero-worship.
                Now all these years later, things are falling apart because nothing is maintained properly --- so the current regime blames the apartheid regime for all the current ills of South African society.
                Freedom's just another word for 'nothing left to lose' ...

                  I am foreign and I don't know the problem of SA, if not through the filter of press.
                  aparteid is not the monster built off, but was still an unright regime.

                  We had to go out but in the different way.

                  The blame is also of old white leadership, unable to create an African dream.

                  Only a might, only a legend, but sufficient for believe in poor black population the illusion of a "shine future".

                  In Italy when we are unified the country, we have had the same problems, with "Terroni", our black people, the Italian of south, speaking dialect that we understand better Spanish then their languages.

                  Terroni, can be translated with American red neck, or men of south, poor farmer, illiterate, strong religious better superstitious, they prefer work in the state that in private branch a society based on family relation.

                  They migrate to rich and industrialized north.

                  But we have integrated in to unified society, it was the Italian dream.

                  Terroni are the people that carry out in America Mafia, that is sicilian thing, Sicily is a real nation, with his language, tradition, identity.
