a proud south african
i think the problem is that white people dont understand what impact the oppression had on the black people even those who are young, the physical, psychological, spiritual and financial. i dont hate whites, i work with them they are good people just like black people are good people. we should try to come to terms with the past like a lot of you had said but in all honestly, better healing comes after understanding your pain and the perpetrator understanding the pain they caused you. i think the same principle you apply to understanding someone close to you should be used in understanding even someone of a different race. we're all human and all have feelings, i love living in south africa with black and white people so lets not run each other down

Excellently said. What a pity so many people don't seem to have read or understood your comments ( or those of Nusty & others ) before repeating their quarrels.
