I agree with Roger. Apartheid was not evil, unless you want to call it a “necessary evil” like police and government. As Laura said, what other choice did they have? Whites have been in South Africa for three and a half centuries. The first European settlers found most of the land almost entirely uninhabited, so it can’t even be said of South Africa what so many liberals and multiculturalists are so fond of saying of America, that white Europeans stole it from some other race that was already there. Most blacks came to South Africa later from other parts of Africa, and especially in recent times they came for the most obvious of reasons; because it was not only the continent’s only First World nation but, in fact, the only one that wasn’t an out-and-out stinking, festering hellhole.
I am not an expert on African history. So I just quote this interesting comment, without even being able to guarantee that it is right.
Certainly, the African Black population grew enormously, in the last 50 or 100 years, probably much more then ten-fold. Just by large numbers of offspring, That population explosion was due to by white medicine and white agriculture technology. Thus an unprecedented number of offspring survived and have offspring again.
And these Africans then demanded space in the land that had been cultured and developed by White settlers, over three centuries.
I admit, I myself fall prey to the PC fallacy that any Black from anywhere can lay claim on any African land as if it were his. But if it was settled and developed by White Boers over three centuries?
And then, in Europe, it will be the same. The African and Muslim immigrants will multiply in 60 years to form the majority (Thilo Sarrazin), Nobody will think that Whites have a special right in Europe. These populations will want to take over Europe , a rich paradise, created by White culture.
Liberals never tire of pointing out the lower standard of living of South African blacks compared to South African whites during apartheid. But they never compare the black South African standard of living to that of blacks in other parts of Africa during the same time. In fact, already in South Africa, thanks to twenty years of black rule, even blacks there now experience what has been called “apartheid nostalgia.”
It is the same in the USA. Detroit is a hell hole, where no White discriminates against Blacks. Blacks do it to themselves.
They vote for a corrupt police chief, corrupt and incompetent city council, corrupt and incompetent major. And they themselves have low education, low discipline, high crime and destroy their own neighborhood.
They all are on welfare, and don’t create enough to have a tax base. They have corrupt Unions and government that spends too much, unproductively.
And then it is the White’s fault, because 200 years ago some white slavers bought Black slaves from Black African slavers.
Whites had every right and every good reason (as they do anywhere else in the world, for that matter; they may not have the will but they have the moral right) to keep themselves separate from blacks and to prevent, in the case of South Africa, their vastly greater numerical participation in the political process from promptly dispossessing whites of what they had built and what belonged to them.

What do do: a population grows 10 fold over 60 years. [I did not verify the numbers] Your own population barely increases. How to keep the growing poor, low skill population from taking over?
And, as you can see from Zimbabwe, or Detroit: the Black population will NOT do better without Whites. On the contrary. Whites create a richer, more civilized environment and Blacks are the first to profit.
