Why do Blacks in South Africa need Affirmative Action?

It makes no sense whatsoever to me. It's like a robber comes into your home, takes control of it and tells you that you need permission do certain things in your own home.

10 Years In, South African Affirmative Action Faces Criticism

JOHANNESBURG— South Africa is observing the 10th anniversary of the law that brought affirmative action to the workplace for black South Africans. The Black Economic Empowerment law - commonly known as BEE - was meant to redress decades of inequality by implementing quotas for black workers in South African companies. Ten years later, however, the policy has its share of critics.

Some say BEE also has deterred black entrepreneurship and has given black South Africans a sense of entitlem
ent.

Dumbest statement ever!! How can they not be entitle to what's rightfully theirs?

    Because white people control most of the wealth and power there. It might be the ancestral home of the Black South Africans, but they don't have the control there.

    what they need even more is a hostile takeover

    Right. But they do have a strong presence in the US.

    It's amazing how two small groups the National Party and the Broederbond took control and still control South africa. Maybe africans aren't as tough as they seem after all because they folded like dominos.

    In other words, the traditional, deeply pious Calvinism of the Afrikaners, a pastoral people with a difficult history in South Africa since the mid-17th century, supplied an element of Christian predestination that led to a determination to wrest the country from the English-speaking British and place its future in the hands of the Afrikaans-speaking Afrikaners, whatever that might mean for the large black and mixed-race population.

    I remember reading a book on apartheid when I was in HS and being disgusted at how a minority could take over South Africa while being out numbered like 15 to 1

    oddly enough, it actually seems to work better if they don't just roll out but instead make that transition to "non-🤬 -up former colony." now perhaps that transition is what has issues but hey

    yeah, it's weird how that peaceful stuff worked out much better than some unrealistic civil war fantasy
