"This is the standard ANGLOW propaganda claiming South Africans are not civilised enough to govern themselves."|
A number of errors in your statement:
1) No-one is suggesting that South Africans are not civilized enough to govern themselves (or at least I am not). Personally, I believe either an IFP or a DA government would be more successful than the current one.
2) Afrikaners are South Africans, so your question is nonsensical, unless you are accusing me of considering Afrikaners, Zulus and Xhosa of being incompetent, and demanding a return to pre-1948 colonial rule, which I wasn't. The Nationa Party government which ruled between 1948 and 1994 was composed entirely of South Africans.
3) It was the "Anglo" nations (I assume you are referring to English speaking Europeans and Americans of European ancestry) who took the lead in imposing sanctions on South Africa until the introduction of majority rule in 1994. The West does not wish to reintroduce colonialism to Africa - to most Westerners, the political situation in Africa is irrelevant.
"They have the worst crime of any nations whether it is measured as a per capita rate or as an absolute number."
False. Take Murder rates per capita for example:
#1 Colombia: 0.617847 per 1,000 people
#2 South Africa: 0.496008 per 1,000 people
#3 Jamaica: 0.324196 per 1,000 people
#4 Venezuela: 0.316138 per 1,000 people
#5 Russia: 0.201534 per 1,000 people
#6 Mexico: 0.130213 per 1,000 people
#7 Estonia: 0.107277 per 1,000 people
#8 Latvia: 0.10393 per 1,000 people
#9 Lithuania: 0.102863 per 1,000 people
#10 Belarus: 0.0983495 per 1,000 people
No white English speaking country is in the top 10.
