"South Africaâ€™s Gini coefficientâ€”the best-known measure of inequality, in which 0 is the most equal and 1 the leastâ€”was 0.63 in 2009. In 1993 it was 0.59. After 18 years of full democracy, South Africa is one of the most unequal countries in the world." its more unequal now than in 93, so exploitation is up, rape is up, murder is up, car jacking up, on average people are worse off financially, across the board besides an even smaller elite than under the old way. so less official racism, but unofficially its much worse. typical of the left wing pc crowd, racism is worse than increases in murder and rape, its ok that white farmers are murdered, things are less racist, its ok that "Sexual violence against minors older than the age of infancy is also extremely prevalent in South Africa. According to the Medical Research Council, more than one in four minors experience physical violence at home daily or weekly and more than one third of girls have experienced sexual violence before the age of 18. Its study also states that by 2009, 40% of all victims who reported rape to the police were under 18 and 15% were under 12 years old." and "A significant contributing factor for the escalation in child abuse is the widespread myth in HIV ravaged South Africa that having sex with a virgin will cure a man of AIDS. This virgin cleansing myth exists in Zambia, Zimbabwe and Nigeria. The child abusers are often relatives of their victims and are at times their fathers or providers." i am sure its the white south Africans that are doing that right? "In post-apartheid South Africa, unemployment has been extremely high as the country has struggled with many changes. While many blacks have risen to middle or upper classes, the overall unemployment rate of blacks worsened between 1994 and 2003. Poverty among whites, previously rare, increased. In addition, the current government has struggled to achieve the monetary and fiscal discipline to ensure both redistribution of wealth and economic growth. Since the ANC-led government took power, the United Nations Human Development Index of South Africa has fallen, while it was steadily rising until the mid-1990s. Some may be attributed to the HIV/AIDS pandemic, and the failure of the government to take steps to address it in the early years." under segregation and European rule things were better, that is a fact, more racism isnt as bad as more aids, more baby rape to cure aids, more murders, more poverty, both black n white, so who is better off ? and in what way?
