Your right, Ian Smith, the UDI, Rhodesian Front, white people, they played a big part in what is going on. But Mugabe has had over 30 years now to improve things, and yet he's been no better than Smith, perhaps some may argue worse.
Americans are so quick to point out the injustices in other countries, yet Apartheid pretty much was invented by Americans
I was somewhat sympathetic to you until I read this. I don't know what it is about certain white Africans and refusing to acknowledge that your ancestors fucked things up for native Africans, but it has to stop.
Mugabe is supposed to magically reverse the primary and secondary implications that hundreds of years of British colonialism left behind in not even a third of the time...right. Dude, if that's the best argument you can make about the political situation there, you really shouldn't waste your time with law school. Seriously, racial segregation existed long before America came to existence.
As for your family's land...sell it.
Have you ever been to Africa?
I plenty acknowledged that there exists the possibility of my ancestors having an effect on the current situation in Rhodesia, sure, but to criticize me, a person born outside of UDI apartheid for simply being born white in Africa doesn't make a lot of sense.
I love America, I would never leave this place, I love the people everything. But saying that I somehow had something to do with the current situation in Rhodesia is analogous to me saying that those kids up in cabrini green living off food stamps are doing so because of you.
