Well it looks like someone did a country facts search on google! South Africa's white population is about 5% of the country. So by your reasoning it is impossible for them to have oppressed the majority black population? Blacks aren't oppressing people in Europe so your comparison is as weak and inadequate as your argument against reparations!

what your saying is that if someone is arab than they are automaticly oppressing someone?? Instead of saying a particular ethnic groupe why dont you say the oppressors need to get out, this lumping of everyone together is just plane racism

Were whites not responsible for Apartheid in South Africa? Were Europeans not responsible for oppression during colonialism? If a particular ethnic group is responsible for the oppression of others, of course they will be singled out. You have a lot to learn about history young man. Why don't you read more, and talk less!

I still have to stand by my belief the "Oppressors" must go regardless of ethnicity. Not all arabs are bad. not all whites are bad. not all asians are bad this is the problem I have with blanket statments.

Yes whites caused apartheid but not all of them. Yes Europeans caused opprression during colonialism but not all of them, the wealthy not the poor, so lumping all of them into one catagory is unfair to anyone who did not practice these tactics...

The White South African government created Apartheid. This system continued for decades until international protest & sanctions (much of it coming from African Americans) made it no longer viable to continue. Those whites who did not actively participate in the creation of this racist system, still benefitted from it. They certainly did not attempt to change it. In fact, I remember vividly the crying white South Africans on TV expressing their fears that they would lose their "rights" if a Black government took control. Therefore it most certainly is not stereotyping or "lumping into one category" by saying that the white minority oppressed Black South Africans. The same can be said about the rest of European colonization of Africa.

IN the case of Niger, maybe not all the arabs are bad, but where are the good one's? Where are their fellow arabs who presumably practice Islam, but stay silent and do nothing while their fellow arabs rape and enslave black people?

I do have to agree with you on this. If you dont stand up and stop what you know is wrong, than you are guilty by association and for allowing terrible things to happen..
