Jemeneus Paavo, an 18 year-old black rugby player of the Windhoek Rugby Club (WRC), was assaulted in Windhoeks Southern Industrial suburb last week Friday, after being questioned on why he was present at Kieppies, a bar widely perceived as a place for whites only.

Seven billion people on the planet, Jack. You can find cases of white racism if you look hard enough. And you sure are looking hard.
I think this takes place in Namibia; I believe Windhoek is their capital. Why any white people would be there is beyond me; the SWAPO group (South West African People’s Organization?) had no love for whitey.
I read about this years ago in National Geographic.

I don’t think that’s his intention - I think he applauding the actions of the folks in these stories.
so what are the odds of me walking out alive from one of my cities all black bars on any given night?
what are the odds of black on white vs the reverse in the US? 20 to 1? 50 to 1?
no racial hate should be tolerated.
Maybe, but I certainly don’t. I much prefer the TEA Party approach: just because the other side is racist, that’s no reason for us to be. Instead we unite on core beliefs. Race is irrelevant. See LtCol West, Cain, Sowell, etc.
I know South Africa was sending commandos into Namibia to stop the flow of weapons to the ANC in South Africa itself (like an African Ho Chi Minh Trail); as far as reading about it, that’s not going to happen - the National Geographic article 20 years ago was the extent of my interest in it.
I know today white fugitives have made arrangements with Namibia for sanctuary - I guess the only color they see if green now.
“so what are the odds of me walking out alive from one of my cities all black bars on any given night?”
Pretty good actually as long as you aren’t in the core hood. When I was dating a black gal (see hated the term “African American”), I did it fairly often. Did get some looks, maybe a shoulder chuck or two, but most people were just fine.
In every country, in every state, in every city, since the beginning of time:
All white areas > All black areas
And by greater than, I mean safer.
I'm unaware of such locations outside of the core hood.
