It's funny the way white people whine about losing their secial privilages from So. Cal to South Africa.

Whites in So.Cal have been boo-hoo-hooing for years because they aren't the largest demographic any longer. They don't even have Affirmative Action in CA and the whites still whine because there are people of Mexican descent speaking Spanish everywhere in a place that used to be a part of Mexico.

White South Africans think that there is a program of genocide against them. They would be soiling their pants if they lived during the Third Reich (or maybe they think they would be Waffen SS?)

They wouldn't be able to handle real oppression like in the Soviet Union. White S.Africans have it great.

Feeling discriminated is the flip side of discriminating yourself. Doing the one there is no way of fleeing the other.

We see that in Israel too, the more the discriminate against the Palestinians they more they feel frightened by Muslims. There is a mechanism in man that is called conscience and guilt.

When we create suffering in others it is activated. It is than that people feel the need to rationalize their wrong actions to silence the guilt feelings. Of this takes the form of accusing the victim. The mind presents the case that we are only rejecting to him

Black people are no different in this than white people. it is pity that people that fall victim to discrimination often react by copying the same behavior to get even. This way they not only lose their moral high ground, they also become victim in a more profound way.

I think People like Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela had a much better understanding. In stead of lowering themselves they took the high road. You are like that, we are better. Those people had much more success than people preaching to get even.

Of course this will not turn hard core racists. They will remain locked in their ideas. Much more important is what it is doing to yourselves, the pride and self esteem it gives you. Who cares what a low life thinks. Let him deby responsibility and feel victimized, it is part of his punishment.

I think that discrimination does not still exists in south africa because humanbeings have accepted that it is against the law for someone to discriminate against you because of your personal charecteristics that you have
