The people of South Africa made an amazing and peaceful transition from a society run by whites in which apartheid prevented black skinned people from enjoying any semblance of equality in education, work of the political process of society. Led by Nelson Mandela the dogs of hate were leashed and whites and blacks came together in a spirit of harmony and peace in order to create a new society in which one’s skin color nor where they were born played a role in how society treated their presence. As the years passed, the South African government failed to create a society which had jobs for all, and opportunities for all to obtain higher education. A new underclass, overwhelmingly black skinned was forced to live in slums and take low paying jobs if they could actually find any. In the meantime, thousands of Africans from neighboring countries entered South Africa since it was among the few African nations with a booming economy that created jobs for those seeking physical work. It also enabled those with entrepreneurial skills to succeed. For some reason native South African blacks did not prove as successful in small businesses as those from neighboring nations.
The result has been the outbreak of riots and death for immigrants who are now blamed for the lack of jobs. “Immigrants are taking our jobs” is the cry of those seeking to blame someone for lack of jobs. how about blaming the government and business for not creating jobs??
