White flight is a natural response to black blight. I call it the demographics dance. It's been going on for decades in America.
After whites relocate, blacks follow and the dance continues as long as there is a place where whites can find refuge.
What happens when there is no place else to flee?
That dilemma is being faced by Afrikaners in South Africa. In an effort to preserve the culture, a group of 1,000 whites developed an exclusive community; an island of white people in a nation they once ruled. They've been pushed to the brink.
The town was named Kleinfontein (Small Fountain) when it was founded in the early 1990s. To live there one must receive approval from a town council.
While the town declares itself to be a preservation for Afrikaner culture, it is a de facto refuge from the violent criminal culture that has permeated South Africa ever since whites opened their borders to cheap labor provided by hordes of blacks from the north. Since South Africa transformed from Apartheid to a black-majority government, the violence and crime has escalated. Thousands of white farm families have been brutally murdered by black thugs.
Kleinfontein is a demonstration of what happens when the music stops and the demographic dance comes to an end. Earlier this month the city gates were visited by the Democratic Alliance Youth, a black activist group that insists the small enclave is racist due to its exclusive residency requirements. Townsfolk argue that their community focus is culture, not race. But all are keenly aware that culture and race are often inseparable.
That raises the question: Do ethnic group have a moral right to self determination and exclusion?
The dilemma rises from the fact that blacks may also form cultural enclaves. The problems are, however, that such enclaves would be miserable habitats where blacks, themselves, don't care to reside. White enclaves, on the other hand, are safe, well-kept and prosperous havens.
It is that problem that can only be resolved by freedom of association in Africa and beyond. But that would allow whites to live apart from blacks if they so desired and, in spite of what liberals say regarding the multiculturalism's moral high grounds, even white liberals are high steppers in the demographic dance.
