South African President says pet ownership is part of 'white culture'
JOHANNESBURG — South Africa's president says a dog should not be man's best friend.
President Jacob Zuma made critical remarks about pet care that touch on sensitive race relations in South Africa, which was dominated by whites until apartheid was dismantled almost two decades ago, The Star newspaper reported Thursday.

Besides being racist, it’s absolute garbage. Non-white peoples have kept dogs and other pets for hunting and other uses for thousands of years. Ignorant.
Yeah, “Pet Eatership” is more his speed.
One of the most ignorant things I heard today.
Nothing but a distraction from their real problems
He needs to get out among his peeps!
Tribal is as tribal does.
Is he a Muslim? They have a serious problem with dogs (exceeded only by their problem with pigs)
Non-white peoples have kept dogs and other pets for hunting and other uses for thousands of years.
Yeah, right! ...just like hockey!
Ok, so it's not a pet.
Yes, I believe he’s a Muslim with 4 wives.
H’mmm, Muslims also reject having dogs as pets because they are “unclean.”
I never thought about it before, but it may be because they roasted them.
...yep. Him and brobama.
What did Zuma say to Obama when a stray walked by at about 4:30?
What is central to this man’s “black culture” beyond scapegoating, theft, poverty, hating, raping, murdering, and torturing people?
Whitey owning a pet might not be so bad in comparison. It always helps if black racists pick the pole out of their own eye before going digging for the splinters in their neighbor’s eye.
Now this guy is going to tell all the Tyrones and Leroy’s in America’s ghetto’s, that owning their pit bulls is a white thing? LMAO
Even though mankind has had pets throughout 'at least' all of recorded time, there are actually MANY people who are completely incapable of loving and caring for a pet (or even a human). Skin color has nothing to do with it. It comes more from ideology and rationalization.
So.... he already has four pets.
My dog is racist.
From what I've heard about how those dogs are treated, I don't know if I'd call them "pets."
In many South African homes, dogs have a distinct purpose; that of protection. Think of this as a way to disarm those who own a protection trained dog.
Better make that 4 slaves, you are chattal in the muslim world.
They hate dogs because dogs can sense evil.
Dogs reject them for the same reason.
“Top 10 Guard Dogs 3: Doberman Pinscher
One word that defines the character of Doberman is FAST.
This is a guard dog that can protect a vast empire due to its aggressive nature and fast in running.
This dog can catch up with an intruder faster than any other top guard dog.
This dog may not be the strongest guard dog, buts it nature wins hearts of many dog owners who are looking for a guard dog.
The dog can also get along with kids making it a perfect guard dog that will mingle well with the family.
This dog breed can also be described as loyal and very friendly to the owner.
This dog is predicable and does not attack people who are associated with the dog owner.”
Do not run.
You will only die tired.
The earliest know depictions of domestic cats are from ancient Egyptian tombs.
I just sat through a you tube, rap infested video of the 10 best guard dogs. Their #1 is the Caucasus Sheepdog (a very formidable beast). Number 6 was the Pit Bull - so much for the breed standard’s warning the dog should never be human aggressive.
They left off a bunch of the LGD’s of Eastern Europe in favor of mastiff type dogs. Heh, they’d be shocked if they try an Anatolian Shepherd or a Sharplaninatz
He isn’t. It’s his tribal African religion that permits it.
I’m thinking the PBs on there solely for the ‘intimidation factor’.
*Every* PB I’ve ever met was an initial barking “scary beast” who was on their back asking for belly skritches 5 minutes later.
I definitely would not consider them for my own ‘guard dog’ purposes.
[unless of course I was concerned about other dogs robbing me and then, I *might* consider them]
There’s tons of PBs in yards everywhere around here and frankly, they don’t impress me much as ‘guard dogs’ but then, I’m not phobic about the breed.
The CS and Anatolians are awesome dogs but not very practical *here* because of their scarcity.
[FWIW, I disregard any “rap infested” video out of hand..if that’s their soundtrack of choice, I can pretty much bet that very little of their ‘wisdom’ is useful]
In ScH and protection dog training, PBs are not the dogs of choice and more work goes into training them because they’re very much *not* ‘human aggressive’.
IMO, if you have to over-ride a dog’s natural instincts to -make- it a ‘guard dog’, you’re wasting time.
There’s a really good but unintentionally funny book that guarantees you can make an “attack dog” out of *any* breed...and they further prove it by training Poodles, Cockers and whatnot.
Sure, theoretically it *can* be done but who has that kind of time to waste?
Speaking of training “any breed”, one of my favorite videos of all time:
That little beast does a full schutzhund 3 routine far better than the majority of big dogs. His bark & hold is priceless. (c;
“Is he a Muslim? They have a serious problem with dogs (exceeded only by the problem with pigs)”
And don’t forget how they treat women!
They’ll come for the dogs 1st.
Cornelius: [reading from the sacred scrolls of the apes]
Beware the beast Man, for he is the Devil’s pawn.
Alone among God’s primates, he kills for sport or lust or greed.
Yea, he will murder his brother to possess his brother’s land.
Let him not breed in great numbers, for he will make a desert of his home and yours.
Shun him; drive him back into his jungle lair, for he is the harbinger of death.

She spent her formative years among Border Collies doing agility (she is in the same height class). So she loves to herd and is pretty good at it.
My daughter in law does Schutzen work, and the Choc observes with interest.
Which was a good thing, because when a rabid raccoon invaded our fenced back yard in the early morning (unbeknownst to me) and I let the dogs out to air, she got in front of the other two dogs and executed a perfect bark-and-hold from about 10 feet away.
She's my All Purpose Dog.
There are still white people in South Zimbabwe?
If I were a white South African I would try to get a dual citizenship in some other country in case I had to get out in a hurry. There are many expats today who have homes in other countries, that might be a good way for white South Africans to find another country.
