No problem. However, I am a human being like all the rest of you and what I particularly LOATHED was a certain person going from website to website, forum to forum and slandering me and calling me a racist, etc, etc. This person seemed to miss the entire point of the website which is stated clearly on the home page and is reflected in the articles on the News page which are written/posted by me.

No problem. The main thrust of the website is Southern Africa, Zimbabwe+South Africa in particular - but with general comments on Africa.
The general message is this: Most of Africa has been independant for 40-50 years and in that time it has become very obvious for anyone who knows the history that Africa has gone backwards - since independence. There are many reasons for this. Southern Africa, especially, is the region I am concerned about because I have lived here all my life. The region has great mineral wealth which have drawn Russia’s interest for long (See the photo gallery on my website for photo evidence of Russia’s presence in South Africa and other countries).
Most of the states in southern Africa (south of the equator basically), are SOCIALIST and many are closet communists/Marxists (e.g. Mugabe as but one example).
Everyone ALWAYS focusses on RACE when in fact the real issues are ideological.
>How has life worsened for the average (black) citizen?
Absolutely. Africa, for example, at the end of WWII could feed itself. Now only South Africa can - and even that is going down the drain. The wealth of African colonies, back in the mid 1900’s when compared to say the Philiphines or Malasia, was greater than it is today. IN EVERY RESPECT, Africa has LOST GROUND to every part of the world since the 1960’s. Yet, all problems are blamed, by its current rulers on “colonialism”. This is nonsense as any study of historical facts will show.
>What, specifically, have the governments done wrong?
The basic thing which the West did, especially Britain, was to just run away from their responsibilities. They handed over power willy nilly to any old Russian-sponsored puppet who came along. Those of us who lived here, warned where this would lead to, and in the case of Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe), South West Africa (Namibia) and South Africa and the Portuguese colonies - handover to black Marxists sponsored by Russia was resisted.
>What should they have done?
The West should have played a much more active role and should have helped more pro-Western blacks to come to power and they should have supported whites who were willing to hand over to pro-Western blacks. Instead, now, they try to “convert” Marxists over to the Western way of thinking (e.g. Zimbabwe + South Africa). Their “success” will be minor because these people will do anything to get FREE MONEY while only paying lip service to Western values and alliances and will, when in need, ALWAYS turn to Russia and China. (e.g. Mugabe bought arms from both Russia and China in the last 2 years in preparation to counter civil uprisings).

Well, my book makes suggestions. The purpose of my website and book is to draw attention to the problem and to try to explain things to people outside Africa in a sensible manner instead of just playing “the blame game” as current Africans do.
I believe, that in the end, nothing will be done. I believe, the West will pussyfoot around, and Mugabe-style thinking will gain sway in South Africa and that eventually it will lead to a race war where whites have to take up arms to prevent Zimbabwe-style take-overs. In such a situation, I believe whites will be forced, through circumstances to break away to form a white country on the southern tip of Africa.
I do not believe whites will ever come to power in Africa, nor do I advocate it. I do believe there are 2 problems: (a) survival of whites in Africa (b) Survival of black Africa.
I believe, as I said above, whites will be forced to survive or die at some future point (probably in less than 10 years).
I believe that in the long term, Marxists, like those now ruling Zimbabwe, Mozambique, South Africa, Namibia, Angola and the DRC will eventually have to be deposed and replaced by pro-Western blacks.
NOTE: The black Marxists wield a lot of power and keep spreading their influence through Africa by war and political machinations. Have you seen Africa take a strong stand against Mugabe for example? You won’t.
As Africa falls apart, Africa will continue to become a bigger problerm for the rest of the world BECAUSE, the world needs to give aid to prevent starvation. Africa, as a burden, will increase. Furthermore, more and more Africans will flee to Europe, Britain and whereever else they can. This mass migration of blacks from Africa should already be telling you people that life in Africa is not good. Indeed, even at the height of Apartheid, blacks were continuously moving IN TO South Africa from all manner of black nations to the north, not unlike what the Mexicans do in the USA today.
