    Poor whites did not exist until now?

    Zuma said he had met businessmen, wealthier Afrikaners and farmers, but had not until recently been aware of the poor white Afrikaners in the Tshwane area. "All this time I did not realise a section [of the population existed] that could be referred to as poor whites."
    Full score here

    Right - so if we take this at face value.......What does he really know and is he genuinely going to look at the Nation as one?
    And if we don't believe this.......mmmmm........just another bs politician?

    The irony is that the poor Afrikaners has always existed.

    Only in the Tshwane area? He might still be exploring South-Africa, you guys, this is just another worrying sign....

    What was he thinking? You just flash your white skin and the money pours in?

    Is he aware that there is a massive, struggling white middle class too?

    I just wish we could get all this black/white cr*p out of the way and focus on dealing with the economic condition of people regardless of the colour of their skin.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    Guys...
    I'm a newbie but was just speaking about this, this morning....I dont REMEMBER even once seeing a white beggar/hobo on the streets growing up and I used to school on the Berea here in Durbs but this morning I saw a few. I doubt that he hasnt seem them but just maybe never acknowledged them.

    Probably thought they were just crossing the road and greeting everyone along the way.
