    Well places like Cape Town aren't and are actually nice but of course there are the townships, the black community had to start from nothing and get over the discrimination. Mandela was the first and last leader of the ANC that tried to change he wanted to make blacks and whites equal not for blacks to be superior. What they need now is the DA and from what I have read they may have a chance to gain more and more seats very election as the ANC does nothing they have proven they can do something. People also hve rights now and living standards are slowly but surely rising.

    Their economy is terrible. The standard of living goes down. The crime rate is appalling. The un-employment rate is at record levels. Public health is almost non existent after years of denying there was an AIDS problem.

    That's enough to get started.

    Mandela helped defeat white oppression in South Africa. This was a good thing.

    Its a terrible shame that the ANC wasn't able to enact more land reforms in SA. Only 1% of their land redistribution goals were achieved.

    When the vast majority of a nation has been oppressed for more than 100 years and finally gets power back from the small oppressive minority, that is justice.

    Justice takes time to work things out. But justice was done. No tears should be shed for the white racist Afrikaners and British who profited from terrible racial injustice and land theft in SA. They made the mess and now they must deal with the outcome.
