I cannot believe White people outside of South Africa actually sympathize with White Afrikaners and believe this myth about them being oppressed.
Like you can’t be serious to pick the one White group in the world where Black people just gained some freedom, and tell me there is a genocide against Whites now. That’s ludicrous. How can you be so willing to believe that White people could be undergoing a genocide in South Africa. Do you know what a genocide is?
You think that’s happening to white people in South Africa? How you gonna project your fear of Black revenge out there on display for everyone to see…..?
White people are vacationing in Black townships as cultural experiments. They’re still segregating themselves! Do they look under threat of a genocide???.
I’m American. I know it’s people struggling harder than me. And you can call me out on that… but then again, you mistake this for “The Oppressed Olympics.” It’s not that. It’s me fighting for what’s mine as a human being. But if you do wanna play that game, for Christ’s sake, do not let White South Africans be your example. That’s just a terrible example. Let it be some other community…. basically any other community.
You don’t understand how often my friends and I were harassed when we were there (I especially witnessed more harassing towards my dark skinned friends.) You just ruined my day with that bs.
Her ex-husband may possibly be one of the greatest and most well-known political leaders of any country, but Winnie Mandela has certainly made a name for herself.
Winnie Madikizela-Mandela (1936-) was born in a small village in Eastern South Africa to a family of Xhosa tribal roots. Despite growing up and living most of her life during the Apartheid era, Mandela was educated, earning a degree in social work and a Bachelor’s degree in international relations.
In 1957, Winnie met Nelson Mandela. Mandela was a lawyer and a strong anti-apartheid activist, 18 years older then Ms. Madikizela. They married the next year and had two daughters before Nelson Mandela was arrested in 1963. Her husband was imprisoned for 27 years. During those long years, Mandela openly spoke out against apartheid and was exiled because she became involved with politics.
In May 1994, Nelson Mandela was elected president of South Africa, becoming the first black leader of the country. Mrs. Mandela was the first lady of South Africa from 1994 to 1996, as she and Mr. Mandela divorced that year. Today, Mrs. Mandela is an active South African politician. She was elected to the South African parliament in 2009.
