Iím saying that we need to forgive and forget. And THEN we can help each other. SA used to be a really nice place, but this entire debacle with Zimbabwe and Affirmative Action has created more racial tension. Although it is inevitable, when the whites evacuate Zim, it will cause an awful lot of racial conflict. What a mess.
We can help eachother, but we don't need to put white farmers in harms' way by forcing them to stay in a hostile country.
