    The worlds first "concentration camps" were set up there by the British during the Boer War to hold the Boer's women and children after they had burned their farms. Thousands of the prisoners died due to disease, lack of medicine, food and unsanitary conditions.

    Yeah, I'm sure that's why he posted here: to be blasted and mocked by you. It wasn't like he was just trying to be a nice guy and promote his country to those of us who might not be familiar with it. While you're at it, why don't you just go ahead and adapt your signature to read "Want to know something about Asstrailia?We treated the aborigines like sh*t!" Because obviously, that's something that you're proud about when talking about your home country.
    Заранее благодарю всех за исправление ошибок в моём русском.

    Glad you know that , lol , and here the english make out as though the germans invented the concentration camp. And during all of those we also have the formations of what would become early days of the apartheid goverment. Strange how things turn out lol its like history was repeating itself with South Africa. Seems like most goverments get formed in prisons there hahaha. Something to be said about politicions

    I think he's talking about the evolution theory that life on earth began in africa. "They" would be the scientists that believe this.

    Everyone knows life began in the garden of Eden which was not in Africa, it was somewhere in Europe cos Adam and Eve were white like Jesus and God.

    Yeah, did you see God as a white person?

    Jesus couldn't be just extremely white taking in account the place he was born.

    If Jesus were actually depicted to look like a person from the middle east everybody in America would convert because they'd think he was a terrorist or something.

    I was always amused by how Jesus is always depicted with long hair, but if a man walks into alot of churches with long hair everybody takes offence to it. Personally, I don't think anyone who hasn't seen him should be painting pictures of him anyway.

    I believe in Jesus but i dont believe the pictures that they draw of him.
    and yeah, Jesus was born in betlehem, thats in the middle east!
    i dont want to discuss what was the color of his skin, because we look at his heart.

    anyways, South Africa what a cool topic, i realy like the previous president of it, nelson mandella, i love reading his books about human rights.

    some of the oldest fossils are found in south africa in the sterkfontein caves also there is evidence of a ancient culture resembling the eygptians. The chinese were the first to bump into south africa they thought they had discoverd eden for there was no need to farm or do anything for everything grew on the trees themselves. The orginal people have long since died out all that remain are fragments of there sociey and just tribes that migrated up and down the coast. And you knows black people could have been white and vice versa it is only at best a theory - an old one at that too. The active chemical in your skin melanin thought to be only a pigment has also been attributed with properties showing that it helps boost your immune system by what you eat. So skin colour is not a defining point as to who you are. In fact how far can anyone take there history , only back to a time of myths and legends and yes we call traffic lights robots , you should see how confused all the english were when i first said that. Eden could be anywhere Ill figure that one out when the answer is given to me.
    its my opinion - but its flexible

    yeah , everyone respects madiba - nelson mandela's nick name. The true art of forgiveness. I respect the african people they have such a harmony about them and a peace , its the land though. It changes you somehow. But then I don't have to tell anyone here that do I , for each of you has there own land and im sure you have seen the differances. Prehaps thats one good thing about South Africa is that I do not feel like it belongs to anyone its just a place some call home.
