Whites still pocket the most.

From here.

Despite all the endless winging you get from miserable expats who are extremely out of touch with the real situation in South Africa, white South African's remain an extremely wealthy and priveledged group of people. We have an average household income relative to cost of living that few groups of people in the world can enjoy. In fact all South Africans have seen a massive increase of averrage incomes since the middle 1990's. Here. Suck on it.

Johannesburg - Whites earn more than four times the South African average income, according to a recent survey.

According to the South Africa Survey, published by the SA Institute of Race Relations (SIRR), the average per capita income in South Africa in 2008 was R32 559, while per capita income for whites was R135 707. At the same time blacks had the lowest income of R19 496.

Indians had the second-highest income per head, with an average R56 173. Coloureds' average per capita income in 2008 was R27 569.

All race groups showed significant increases in their incomes since the mid-1990s. Between 1998 and 2008, per capita earnings for blacks (at current prices) increased by 180%. For Coloureds the increase in earnings over the decade was 148%, while Indian incomes also jumped 148%. Whites netted a 162% increase.

The total increase between 1998 and 2008 was 154%.

As could be expected, average per capita incomes were highest in the country's two richest provinces, Gauteng and the Western Cape. In these two provinces average per capita incomes were R52 343 and R48 228 respectively.

Income was lowest in Limpopo, with an average of R21 967. With the exceptions of Gauteng and the Western Cape, no provinces had incomes higher than R30 000 per capita per year.

The Free State, Northern Cape and KwaZulu-Natal were the only other provinces to have average per capita incomes higher than R25 000. Average per capita income in the Free State was R28 405. In the Northern Cape it was R27 118, and for KwaZulu-Natal the average was R25 420.

"It is clear that the income gap between South Africans is closing," said an SIRR researcher in a statement. "However, it is questionable whether this gap is closing fast enough.

"The closing of the income gap between whites and blacks in particular is imperative. Such large disparities in wealth between population groups do not bode well for the future stability of South Africa."

Whites earn more because they are more productive and better skilled. History proves this.

Small consolation when your wife gets gang banged by the police while in custody and your expectation of justice is practically zero. Kaffir justice brought to you by our beloved ANC - most of whom are criminals themselves.

And by this you have just proven beyond all doubt that all whites in SA are inevitably screwed!
You are NEVER (legally) going to get blacks out of their poverty spiral (especially not by giving them free houses, electricity & water!)
Therefore the only way for the "have nots" to get what they "aspire" to is to forcibly take from "the haves"
Ergo, crime & corruption will be a never-ending, uncontrollable spiral until things get like Zimbabwe where there are no more "that have" and the "have nots" are at peace with each other, finally having nothing.
Really rooster, you should concentrate while creating your diatribe once in a while. You might learn something about your "inner self"
Suffice to say -
"When the Nats ran the country they screwed the blacks, but these days the ANC run the country and they screw whites and blacks with equal vigour"

Drama queen. I'm taxed less than I would have been during apartheid and earn 160% in real terms more.10 million MORE black people now have free housing , electricity and water, healthcare , edcuation etc plus their income in real terms is 180% higher. Wow..we're so screwed.

My eyes are rolling so fast my head looks like a slot machine.

Drama queen. You get all your horror stories from carte blanche and then project them onto everything? Buddy if things like this were common place they wouldn't be news ! The fucks will get arrested and get what they deserve from bubba in an S.a prison. God it's awful to be surrounded by such a bunch of whinging pussies.

Whites still pocket the most because evidently being kicked out of formal employment has been good for their entrepreneurial spirit. (???) See 'The harmful effects of BEE' by John Kan Berman:

RoosterSucks - one tragic incident in Kempton Park and another in Pretoria does not mean that all SA cops are out to gang-bang white women. There are bad apples in every profession and they come in all colors. Most SA cops, black and white, put their lives on the line to keep your asses just a little safer than they otherwise would be. Also, whites do not earn more because they are more productive. A look at history reveals that nothing could be further from the truth, as during apartheid most Afrikaners did not even mowe their own lawns. Whites earned more because historically they carved a privileged position for themselves while oppressing others.

It's not interesting at all. If I didn't think there was a false perception about crime in S.A and how it affected whites and tourists I wouldn't be writing this blog to rectify it. I know what tourists think about South Africa...they get many silly ideas from the expat who write scaremongering drivel....truth is it's a vry safe place to travel. All facts validate what I'm saying. So suck it.

"The closing of the income gap between whites and blacks in particular is imperative. Such large disparities in wealth between population groups do not bode well for the future stability of South Africa."

I wonder how they plan to do this. Probably by tripling their efforts to undermine the white man. Truth is we are too clever for them and that's why we still earn more and find ways around the system.

I like the challenge. Bring it on pussies!

The Rooster said...

Or maybe they are not suggesting making whites poorer but other "races" wealthier ?

But yes...I like your attitude in a way. I don't need any government hand outs to suceed. The less government intervention in my life the better. I'm a grown man and don't need anything than a free market to do fine.

I don't live on government handouts either, nor will I ever because that would be an insult to my integrity.

Because I treat others the way I treat myself I don't expect others to beg from me for adding nothing to my life other than a false sense of altruism.

I guess I'm just a racist who shouldn't be in Africa then.
