Afrikaner Homeland

South African blogger Mzansi Afrika points out that “those insane and racists Afrikaners in Orania have not yet given up on their dream of creating an independent, self-sufficient “homeland” within the borders of South Africa”.

    What exactly is so racist about wanting to be governed by your own people, instead of being forced to submit to the rule of a nation whose culture is totally incompatible with your own? As far as I know, both the UN and the South African constitution allows for a nation to rule itself.

    The writer of this article is obviously the actual racist.
