Meanwhile in South Africa the beat goes on… and on… and on… and on… [Repeat until buffer is full]

How “EQUITY” ideology plunged South Africa into inequality and chaos

The overarching truth is that an idea pushed South Africa to the brink. You guys know this idea because it animates the sermons of critical race theorists trying to force you to take the knee and atone for your supposed sins. I am going to call it the Beautiful Idea, because it is beautiful in a way– but also dangerous. 

The Beautiful Idea holds that all humans are born with identical gifts and should turn out to be clones of one another in a just society. Conversely, any situation in which disparity survives is in itself proof of injustice. This is the line promoted by CRT pundit Ibram X. Kendi, who blames all racial disparities on racist policies.

Firms were also required to meet racial quotas in hiring and ensure that management was racially representative, meaning roughly 88 percent black. Tendering for government business became increasingly pointless because contracts were invariably awarded to black-owned firms, even if their prices were double, triple, or tenfold.

Investment dried up. Brains drained. The economy stagnated, causing unemployment to surge to 11.4 million today, from 3.3 million in l994. The upshot: utter misery for the underclass, doomed to sit in tin shacks, half-starved, watching the black elite grow fat on the pickings of equity laws and rampant corruption.

This was an especially bitter experience for young black people, 63 percent of whom are now jobless, too broke even for booze and drugs to dull the pain. Last week, it proved easy for Zuma and his acolytes to tempt them onto the streets with the promise of loot.

And so we come to the moral of this story. It’s a warning about the practical consequences of ideas like those propounded by Kendi and CRT superstar Robin DiAngelo, who in the name of “equity” maintains it is racist to talk of work ethic or to expect all workers to show up on time, regardless of race.

It is exactly these values that have brought South Africa to its knees. We created a society where nothing was expected of blacks save “blackness.” Honor and diligence were not demanded of government appointees. Sloth was tolerated. Failures and corruption went unpunished. Blind pursuit of equity began to achieve its opposite: a staggering equality gap among blacks themselves, with a fortunate few benefitting hugely and the masses sinking into abject misery.

    “…CRT pundit Ibram X. Kendi, who blames all racial disparities on racist policies.”
    He doesn’t believe that any more than he believes the man in the moon.
    Look at his supposed credentials, and compare that to the common ghetto negro.
    They ain’t the same and it has nothing to do with race.
    It has to do with intelligence, attitude, ability.
    He knows this, and he has chose race grifting to line his pockets.
    Essentially, he is ripping off the negro’s and everybody else by way of a bold faced lie.
    In a just world he would be dragged while burning.

    Equity—Thanks to the cultural Nihilists, another word devoid of meaning.
    Here’s another word that still does have meaning: Apathy. When the people suffering from this continue to invite more misery into their lives, what can be done?
    Once the bright. responsible and conscientious – in short, the builders – are driven out of society; what remains are those not possessing those qualities and traits. Deterioration inevitably leads to destruction. Entropy has many agents.
    This was easily predictable. At this point, I’m sufficiently jaded to consider that this is the desired outcome.

    Lol….SA is getting exactly what it begged for when whites were removed from control. Now it’s a deep and vulgar shithole, filled with thousands and thousands of filthy, diseased and murderous blacks with so little intelligence that they not only slaughtered their golden cow but they’re wallowing in its offal.

    And American blacks watch this stuff and openly admire what the fellas in SA are doing. So much so that some prognosticators have suggested that the US is only months away from this feral behavior.

    A point worth remembering: People have a tendency to give you exactly what they have.

    I counted at least 4 bodies drop and 2 who were already on the ground. Id say that group got the worst of that encounter

    Jack sed: “…diseased and murderous blacks with so little intelligence that they not only slaughtered their golden cow but they’re wallowing in its offal.”
    The obvious solution to this perceived problem is for the Xiden gang to move all of them to the US where the taxpayers just luv taking care of them. I keep waiting for something to snap.

    Never…bring a handgun to a carbine fight. If you do, you’ll be stacked like cordwood just like in the second scene in this vid. I credit those guys, whoever they are, for standing their ground, more or less, and firing their peashooters like that, but it doesn’t speak well for their intelligence. To actually hit things with pistols, esp. short barreled or semi-auto pistols, you will need to be so close that you might make your next move by biting your adversary. I’m not saying that I’d have the stones to do it, but the only move those SOBs had would’ve been to rush forward and get their handguns in range for effective suppression or killing.
    It hurts bad when you’re stupid.

    I think we are about to get another lesson (as if another lesson was needed) on the truth of the old saying; “Violence has settled more human conflicts then anything else, if you doubt that consult the Carthage city fathers.”

    I do not want to generalize, but I have been made to understand there are more than a handful of African-Americans (and those that “identify” with such and the BLM political goals including Moors, “sovereign citizens”, the likes of kamala, several in congress, “entitled, college students, the progeny of wealthy liberals”, liberal professors of every discipline, and others) who in word and action suggest they would be “happier” without the “-American”. Let’s print some “dollars” and transport them to South Africa where they’re “pursuit of happiness” will be unencumbered by the majority of the legal citizens of the USA who think the Constitution is still a pretty good document (if the People would abide by its provisions).
