1/ Let me tell you about #SouthAfrica friends since it's topical and I've lived here for 30 years.
2/ The biggest divides between black and white are cultural and almost invisible but very very important.

Black people -> group culture.
White people -> individual culture.

3/ In group cultures, people are loyal to the group in exchange for protection. Your identity is found in the group to which you belong. No person is 100% one or the other of course - we're all a mixture of both. However, by and large, black people are group culture, whites not.
4/ As a white English-speaking South African, I am effectively a Westerner - a member of an individual culture. We emphasize personal responsiblity for one's actions and our own abilities and hard work in our achievements.

Group cultures are not like this at all.
5/ In a group culture, loyalty to the group is rewarded with protection by the leaders of the group and benefits of being a member. The ancient near East for example is very group culture oriented - something that must be born in mind when reading the New Testament for example.
6/ This is really easy to see when black people write about leadership. In Ruel Khoza's book Let Africa Lead, he draws a diagram on page 9 (IIRC) where most of the space is taken up with the important tribal and group relationships. Very little is allocated to strategy or vision.
7/ He used to run our electricity utility. He ran it in to the ground, not because he was a bad leader but because eletricity utilities need to be run by Westerners who are individual culture-oriented if they are to function and deliver a service.
8/ Here's the mayor of the region a couple of miles away from where I live.

As far as I'm concerned, he can go fuck himself. My taxes pay for millions of black people to get free money every month. Not only that, but I personally support 9 black people directly every month.
9/ Because he's a member of a group culture, he assumes that I am personally responsible for my ancestors' actions.

Sorry dude. I am personally responsible for my own actions only and no-one else's.
10/ The land issue is amazingly complex. For a start the spirits of many black people's ancestors live on the land they came from - something I respect and have always acknowledged. But when it comes to some Afrikaaner land, they were there FIRST - the history is clear.
11/ Impasse. Read Peter Grant's analysis here:…

Peter is an amazing man with many years of experience living here and fighting apartheid. He understands the intractability of the land problem completely.
12/ He's also very aware of the spiritual connection people have to the land on this continent:…

Africa is _different_ - more different that you suppose.
13/ If you want easy votes, then all you have to do is scream that the whites have stolen your land. Because of the deep-seated connections - both historical and spiritual - to the land and the fact that this is sometimes true, you're going to be popular.
13/ South Africa is being engineered for maximum chaos by the men behind the curtain. I've watched this carefully for a few years now and all the signs are there: ab chao, ordo. Out of chaos, order.
14/ #qanon told us what the framework was: the ruling families at the top of the hierarchy, the top bankers and financiers underneath, the multinationals under them, the reserve banks and finally the governments - the so-called elected representatives of the people. Hah.
15/ Things that make you go hmmmmm #1: a massive outbreak of virulent bird flu for no reason at all right in the region where we raise the most chickens:…

Result: chicken prices double.
16/ Things that make you go hmmmmm #2: a massive outbreak of lysteriosis:…

Result: meat prices double.
17/ Things that make you go hmmmmm #3: the ruling party votes to start illegally confiscating private property:…

Result: fear, uncertaintly and doubt.
18/ Things that make you go hmmmmm #4: the leader of an opposition party with 1m+ supporters says he has not called for the slaughter of white people yet:…
19/ Things that make you go hmmmmm #5: dodgy connections between the ruling party and the Clintons/Obama.

I actually have hard evidence of household names in South Africa involved in child trafficking. Because they're all controlled the same way.

Tick tock, tick tock guys.
20/ This is GEOTUS putting the elites behind South Africa on notice:

He sees them and he's aware of what they're doing.
21/ Is the government involved in at least some farm murders? I think so.
22/ What happens when there is a process to restore the land? The dumb as a box of bricks minister spends the entire yearly budget on a corrupt and opaque settlement that doesn't benefit the people:…

AWA - Africa Wins Again.
23/ Things that make you go hmmmmm #6: China and the IMF start hovering around with generous 'offers' just when our currency is being manipulated into oblivion. Not a good sign.
24/ Things that make you go hmmmmm #7: British PR firm Bell Pottinger was paid 100 000 pounds a month by the President's shady financiers, the Guptas, to stir up racial tension in the country:…
25/ Well, this is embarrassing. The President's 'toxic' and 'totally not true' tweet is confirmed by the leader of the EFF.
26/ The handing over of farms has been going on for quite a while. It's been going as well as you would expect:
