    Blacks worse off than before

    This c-span video comes to you with Andrea Mitchell the host and Bill Gates and Robin Wright reporting on Democracy health. If you want to speed to her part of discussing blacks, check in round the 18 minute mark of the meeting and scroll back or forward to fine tune it. Check it our.

    She says in South Africa, democracy is worse off today than during Apartheid. She reports on another nation in Africa and it's failures as well.

    Democrats in congress are like having the Fox construct the hen house then installing the security system.

    Yea, South Africa is a sad story.

    They have EVERYTHING they need: Resources, a nice geographic location, ports, etc.

    They just need to find a way to get rid of the crime and corruption.

    Al Swearengen: He's got a mean way of being happy.

    This is what happens when you have a group of people who are NOT ready for leadership. They are thieves, opportunists, unfamiliar with nationalism or human decency. More concerned with self promotion and wealth.
    Sarah Sanders doesn't often mop the White House Press Corp Floor...but when she does, she uses Jim Acosta.

    There is no American free press. They're bought and paid for.

    The Devil whispered in Trump's ear and said, 'You're not strong enough to withstand the storm". President Trump whispered back, "i am The Storm"!

    and Epstein didn't kill himself.

    To You and also Al Swedgin

    We are on the same page. South Africa is in deep trouble lacking water. Also it has failed to correct problems it had during Apartheid. I never visited there but have tapped Google a lot trying to study it. I recall vividly when I was in New Orleans on the bus back to the Airport meeting a young blond woman who spoke to me a bit about it. Hope she is still alive.

    People LONG for freedom. and I don't blame them. It was wrong what was done to blacks I think. I don't know or it doesn't appear that there were opportunities for blacks. HOWEVER, you can't just turn everything over on its head in one day and expect it to be good. Blacks were not ready to rule, they can't even rule themselves. This should have been a long drawn out process administered with respect. perhaps a little love...but no. Those blacks who were clamoring the most for freedom also meant retaliation for their former oppressors. and that's where we are. Now they have black oppressors who are as bad if not worse than what they had before.

    Ditto Calypso and a major problem is the blacks steal the land from whites and boot them off

    Let the blacks starve. They made their bed, let them lay in it.
    I will not donate to ary an African thing ever. Let them reap what they have sown.

    I don't think anyone is making excuses for Apartheid.

    Only that what replaced the vacuum of authority is worse in many ways. I have heard that during Apartheid many black people were fleeing into South Africa. The economy was attractive even with institutional racism.
    "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."

    - Ronald Reagan
