2) Here are four facts you need to know about the Green New Deal:
1 – The Green New Deal is the latest incarnation of the “Keep It in the Ground” movement.
@SenSanders introduced the “Keep It in the Ground Act” but protests at Standing Rock—turned violent. @POTUS
3) Because the protests at Standing Rock—which were supposed to galvanize public support behind the “Keep It in the Ground” movement, became violent, public support wasn’t there.

(1) The anti-white sentiment in #SouthAfrica is an aspect of #tribalism.

Outsiders see it as racial, because they r not aware of the endemic internecine conflicts which occurred inter-tribally - long before the white Boers arrived in South Africa.

It's an economic power play
(2) which would unfold against any land-owners should the white #Boers not be there.

It manifests itself as racism, but in reality is an economically-motivated #tribalism (you have - we don't - we take) with #Marxist elements seeded into the movement to foment hate and violence
(3) Complicated #Marxist dynamics, fueled by #tribalism (which as an ethnic phenomenon can encapsulate racism) - but base motivations reside in economic differences versus color or tribe - despite what alternative state media in SA maintains
