DAILYKENN.com -- Imagine a nation where rioting, rape, and farm murders are the everyday norm.
Imagine South Africa.
Imagine a nation that was built by white innovation then overrun by black insurgents.
Imagine South Africa.
The myth that whites stole the land from blacks is simply not true. When the Dutch arrived in South Africa the land was sparsely populated by bushmen. The cold climate was too harsh for the black Bantu who preferred the warmth of sub-Saharan Africa. However, after whites developed an advanced culture, blacks invaded by millions; many at the invitation of foolish whites seeking cheap labor for mining and household chores.

Several people were injured in Kimberley following a service delivery protest, Northern Cape police said on Thursday.
Lieutenant-Colonel Dimakatso Mooi told News24 that chaos erupted when residents delivered their memorandum of demands at the municipal office.
"Police had to fire rubber bullets when chaos erupted. No arrests have been made yet," Mooi said.
Crowds of protesting residents marched through the streets over apparent service delivery issues and high tariffs.
They are also calling for the heads of certain officials within the Sol Plaatje Municipality.
According to ER24, three people were left injured following the protest action in Kimberley.
"ER24 paramedics were alerted to the scene after receiving reports that three people had been injured by rocks during the protest action," spokesperson Russel Meiring said in a statement.
"Once on scene, paramedics found that a man had sustained a wound to his head while a woman had sustained a fracture to her ankle."
Meiring said both patients were treated and transported to Mediclinic Gariep for further treatment.
"A third man was transported privately to a nearby hospital," he said.
Scenes on social media showed community members marching through rubble-strewn streets while black smoke from burning tyres enveloped them.
Police on the scene are keeping an eye on developments and are reportedly using tear gas and stun grenades, as well as rubber bullets, to disperse the crowds.
