    I am amazed at how this ‘guilt trip’ is continually pushed at us white folk over ‘stolen’ land. The Xhosa will never admit that it was they who actually displaced the original Khoisan inhabitants of said land.

    We never “stole” the land… we won it through war and spilt blood. Most nations have been forged this way… South Africa belonged to the whites. The unfortunate legislative racisms that followed has now been done away with, and now everyone within the country can participate equally. The country belongs to all that are in it… And there is no such thing as white privilege or superiority. When you have a section of the human race that was as developed as the Europeans were, and you come across a group of people who haven’t even developed writing, and there greatest invention was sawing a long spear in half… of course you going to look down on them. Its a natural… It would have been the same vise versa.

    @african, so what now, are you going to give back land to what’s left of the Khoi people that your ancestors didn’t manage to completely wipe out? Let’s see what all this ‘reparation’ has got us shall we? For the first time, in our modern history, we are now having to import food because much of the working farms have been land-grabbed and left in ruin. Now add the plummeting Rand, water shortages, drought and you can see the impending disaster we are all facing.

    ok, just to share my opinion, i don’t see it as being that simple, the land wasn’t stolen, that was the way things where done in days gone by. If you go back in history, you will see that empires where built on the blood and fighting of the people. Did Shaka Zulu not build his kingdom by killing people and driving them of land that they had thought of as their home? Did the Greek, Roman, Egyptian, and essentially every empire get built on the concept that the winner gets the prize? Did the Zulu not successfully win their first encounter with the “white man”? After which they lost to the white man, thus meaning by the basic understanding of things they where entitled to the prize. Just my logical thoughts on this, last time I checked muggers don’t leave you with your money and take the empty wallet do they? Or maybe I’m out of touch, and muggers will give you bandages and call an ambulance for you? The simple law of history is people fought, and just like in the RWC and other sporting events, winners get the prize.
