White Supremest Killed President Urges Calm

 South African President Jacob Zuma appealed for calm Sunday amid fears the killing of notorious white supremacist Eugene Terreblanche could stoke ethnic tensions in the country.

How the major media projects this event and what the facts are on the ground may be two different things. CNN Reports that
Terreblanche was convicted of the 1996 attempted murder of Paul Motshabi, a Black man who worked as a security guard on Terreblanche's farm. He served about two-thirds of a five-year sentence.
Did the criminally insane White Supremest felon attack (physically or financially)  young Black workers again, thinking he could get away with it as he has all his life, but this time was visited by Ma'at?

An African Mother explains what her 15 year old son, who turned himself in, had to say. The younger of the two employee's explained that Terreblanche refused to pay them. Killing someone for not paying you is a crime under normal sercumstances but so is trying to extract labor from Africans for free. How long has this practice gone on, is it still wide spread in Azania (South Africa)? Crimes should be punshed and I wonder how this event will effect these types of crimes in the future in this country. 

Was this a crime of passion born of injustice instead of premeditated murder? There are also poor European Africans in Azania, are they being payed?  How will the courts treat this, will these young men receive the same justice that the White Supremest got in court? This will be a case to watch.

I live in the U.S.A, and so I leave this piece thinking how will this effect ethnic relations in America. What will the Tea Party, the Palin mobs and Cultural Terrorist groups here think about this?

South Africa is a multi-ethnic experiment on the continent of Africa in a similar manor to the American multi-ethnic experiment on the continent of turtle Island (America). Yes, the Cultural Realities have an inverse relationship, this is precisely why it is important to the world and the forward flow of humankind that both experiments succeed.

Peace and blessings.
