Covid 19 makes a comeback in New Zealand

Please note : New Zealand was the country where their lockdown measures drove coronavirus to extinction. For just over 100 days this country was COVID-19 free. Or so they thought. https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=12355769 Now, three members in a family of six have test...

Re: Black racism in South Africa.

Since they had India to go to, why did they choose to remain in South Africa during the Apartheid years? Were they and are they now better off in South Africa? You presume a world free of immigration barriers where people can go and setttle where they want. Would India have necessarily wanted these...

Re: Anniversary of an Unnecessary War Crime

It serves the Japanese right for the atrocities they caused in Nanking, Singapore, Manila and elsewhere.

Re: Black racism in South Africa.

So the Indians/Asians were treated better than the blacks. That could account for why they started out with a lower poverty rate of 20.9 percent as compared to 68% for the black population. But once all Apartheid laws were gone, the Indians/Asians progressed faster than the blacks. They started the...

Re: No war crime but a necessary evil.

Oh, but I see you red-lettered the part that interested you and ignored the rest.....'>....... Thought experiment: what if I was Pres. Truman.

Re: Anniversary of an Unnecessary War Crime

No, I am not a Christian, but you are, so I am entitled to expect you acting and speaking as such. Calling yourself Christian and then condoning the murder of thousands of innocent people because such a massacre may have - or not - helped prevent other massacres, does not seem to me compatible with...

Re: Black racism in South Africa.

Also, there was this ”Ghetto Act”. This restricted Asian/Indian ownership of land which resulted in Ghettos and deprived them of commercial opportunities.
