To: cradle of freedom
The important lesson in this is advanced societies must learn not to be full of themselves. Europe colonized Africa and Asia, using the Darwin notion that it is natural for superior groups can take advantage of less advance groups, just like strong lions can beat on weak lions. Such policies will bear bitter fruit and generate hatred/revenge once the people of color break the European yoke. One group revenging against past offences from another group is old as the Old Testament in the Bible record of human nature.
Our founding fathers had the right attitude, no foreign entanglements including colonization/empire building. Unfortunately the US went on this road with the Spanish American War followed by Pres Wilson redefinition of the US as the New World to Leader of the Free World. What is happening to whites in South Africa and Rhodesia should serve as a warning to Americans to stay and prosper within the two great God given oceans that protect us. Follow the European imperial road and end up with more enemies and a legacy of revenge.

This is true, but the unfortunate fact is that the cat is already out of the bag. To the extent that the USA has engaged in empire-building, it has not done so in the same way that the Europeans did, which was for the purpose of harvesting local resources, primarily. Yet the USA, seen as a "white country", still has to bear the brunt of the anti-white hatred now, even when it is doing things to help other nations (like aid to Africa). In other words, the USA and all other "white" countries already have to deal with anti-white hatred whether it is deserved or not.
The lesson that should really be taken from South Africa's example, is that when you are part of a civilized minority group who keeps the stores full and the trains running, you don't turn over control of the country to a more primitive majority who hate you just because a bunch of hand-wringing lefties overseas cry about social justice. Not unless you enjoy being macheted to death, that is.
