South Africa: no-win situation

To the Editor of The Blade:

Your would-be editorial about South Africa "Simple as black and white" reveals your ignorance about that besieged republic.
Only to simple minds is everything black and white. Apartheid has been the scapegoat for many evils, but now that it's basically been abandoned everyone's true colors are showing: it's black against black, white against white, blacks and whites against each other, as well as the colored (mulattoes) and Indians taking their turns in the racial ring.
South Africa is damned if it does and damned if it doesn't. Your idiotic idea that South Africa is moving "forward" to a new society in which blacks and whites can live together on an equal basis has no basis in reality.
Apartheid safeguards the white minority, but is condemned by the hypocritical, feuding "family of progressive nations." Democracy will destroy everything that the Euro-Afrikaaners have built up, but will ensure black power since they outnumber whites 10 to 1.
Which blacks would you have rule? There are over 12 tribes that swear allegiance only to themselves. You often report on their factional fighting and killing.
As for Nelson Mandela, I thought he was released from prison on condition that he renounce violence and forswear politics. Yet he's refused to disband the terrorist branch of his ANC organization and prepares to become president.
I spent seven glorious weeks this winter in South Africa, three of which I stayed with colored friends in Cape Town. Many whites, as the referendum revealed, want honest changes. But they don't want to throw out the baby with the bathwater.

A Warning for America from South Africa
It is already too late for South Africa, but not for America if enough people strengthen their spine and take on the race terrorists, the armies of the "politically correct" and, most dangerous of all, the craven politicians who believe "compassionate conservatism" will buy them a few more votes, a few more days of peace.

Stop terrorist Nelson Mandela!

Is it not very strange how the whole world is ignoring the apparent Genocide being committed against the white people in South Africa?

How Evil was Apartheid?
How does one measure evil? Is there such a thing as a universal 'index' according to which deeds of evil can be judged? If we, for example, take the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as the final arbiter of what is evil and what is not, how could we then judge Zimbabwe as being more evil than, for example, China and Saudi Arabia – two countries enjoying marvelous ties with the West despite their abysmal human rights records.
