It only takes 15% of the population to radically cause change. In the case of South Africa, that 15% could start a race war, civil war or all out
The problem with this type of analysis is that it assumes that the 15% wants civil war. All indications are that you have fringe group on the right
and left, but they lack real support. The majority of the really poor blacks do not see whites as the enemy. This perception is a trow back to the
swart gewaar days. (I do a lot of work with people in informal settlements - trust me, most people will not be will to engage in any civil war)
"Dont tell me to get a life, you dont know me, so how can you say something like that!!!"
My apologies, it was met to demonstrate that the title is not reflective of reality.
I think a big problem is that we have people taking an idiot like Malema seriously. He does not represent black South African, and if you speak to the
the average black youth, he is viewed with suspicion.
In most analysis I see, people tend to view the ANC as a monolitical organisation. This is incorrect. Large sections of the organisation is opposed to
Malema. At this stage, because he was elected, the NEC's view is that he needs to be contained in other forms.
The current tensions with the SACP and Cosatu, demonstrates that there are a number of conflicting views with the alliance. THis is not bad, as in the
long run it allow debate and change. The establishment of COPE is a case in point. Expect further breaks and realignment before the local goverment
"Give me 6 months and i could have a war going between blacks groups
Then the white groups only need to find a place to fort up."
Finally, ANNED, please explain to me why would you want this, other than that you are a racist? And if, you do, against all odds start and win such a
war, how do you intend to rule over 45 million people. Force? I dont think so. I would also like to see how many whites are will to join you. Most
whites and specifically Afrikaaner do not see this are their future. They are positive and contribute on a daily basis to building the country (I
would suggest you look at the number of whites involved in social developmet programs and charites targeted at black communities)
