Desmond Tutu: Black Empowerment Not Working

Tue Dec 28, 2004 3:10 am

Desmond Tutu has criticized the South African black empowerment affirmative action program since it (shock, dismay) benefits only a small, already wealthy, already powerful minority. Thabo Mbeki, of course, lashes out irrationally at Desmond Tutu.

Consider the role of overbreeding and insisting on living in cities and refusal to grow one's own food in causing "poverty."

And I'll bet you have less than 10% of the US raising their hands...maybe they're just "unsure"  Laugh out loud
