The only infinite thing he knew of, said Einstein, was human stupidity. To this I would like to add another infinite quantity: human hypocrisy.
If there is one thing that especially South Africa's whites are constantly accused of, it is of racism. Accusations of racism are usually leveled when one or the other member of the criminal ANC regime is inevitably caught with his hands in the cookie jar, something which is bound to happen regularly given its terrorist origins.
So it is in education. Afrikaners, the white descendants of Dutch, German and French immigrants who started arriving in the 1650's, speak a West Germanic language called Afrikaans. Afrikaans is related to Dutch. Afrikaans-speaking schools in South Africa are known for their discipline and good results. Afrikaans schools figure among the top achievers in the final exams. The Afrikaans school Hoër Meisieskool in Pretoria was the best academic performer in the Gauteng province in 2008.
However, this is not a tolerable situation to the ANC regime. It is determined to undermine and cleanse Afrikaans schools from the educational landscape. Its primary weapon is to introduce so-called "English-speaking" pupils, thereby forcing an Afrikaans school to switch to English. These English-speakers are nothing of the sort; their home language is always one of the indigenous languages such as Zulu of Tswana. Whites then flee the school as standards and discipline deteriorate, and pretty soon the school is another underachieving, failed institution, populated by exclusively black pupils.
Whites who attempt to resist the takeover of their schools are labelled as racist. Naturally.
The ANC regime receives overwhelming support from the black population in election after election, so black voters must clearly agree with the ANC's anti-white racist policies. However, and this is the enormously hypocritical thing, this does not stop them from wanting to parasitize white excellence.
The Sunday Times reports, however, that white schools in suburbs are being swamped by black pupils, whose parents vote with their feet against schools staffed by black teachers in their own areas.
One principal is quoted as saying: "They hear that the school has a 100% pass rate and they trust the white set-up far more than they trust township schools because there are no unions, no strikes."
Black schools are therefore emptying and closing, whereas white schools are overcrowded. However, this is a self-defeating, temporary practice. As soon as there are too many black pupils in a school, the standards start dropping, discipline deteriorates and the results plummet. Genetics are a powerful determinant of academic performance, and this cannot be overcome by merely invading white schools.
Not merely content with plundering whites' monetary wealth in the obscene racist practices of affirmative action and black economic empowerment, the black parasites are now also attempting to plunder whites' intellectual wealth.
