Holding his green identity book tight in his hand, Adriaan Courdier stands in line to cast the first vote of his life.
He is one of a minority of poor whites using Wednesday's election to voice their unease with today's South Africa.
The 23-year-old aluminium factory worker is voting with the "born frees," a generation of South Africans born after the end of apartheid, white minority rule, in 1994.
"My family all agree, for 20 years already nothing has happened," said Courdier, a resident of Danville, a destitute suburb in Pretoria, South Africa's administrative capital.
"Some of my family are homeless, they don't have jobs, they are living on the street," said the Afrikaner, dressed in a navy blue nylon tracksuit and a beanie.
"My one boss is black, he is driving an Amarok," he said referring to a $37,000 (26,000 euro) Volkswagen pick-up truck. "And he has a Mercedes and a BMW at home."

“Some of my family are homeless, they don’t have jobs, they are living on the street,” said the Afrikaner, dressed in a navy blue nylon tracksuit and a beanie.”
Before 1994 you would never see such stories about Afrikaners without jobs and homeless. The ANC has devastated the lifestyles the Afrikaners were acoustomed and now they much watch their oppressors accumulate all of the wealth, while they starve.
Apartheid had to go but the majority that voted in the new government were uneducated.
As soon as they get the "equality" they scream for they then set about teaching their former oppressors "a lesson". Hypocrites.
Really? How did you come to that conclusion?
A little late to be concerned isn’t it. As the Gaul said to the Roman; “Woe to the conquered.”
Right. They violated the First Rule of War: “Don’t Lose.”
A lot of folks who say “stop discrimination” really mean to say “stop discrimination against me”.
“Sometimes I think it was better, before 1994,” said Ockert van der Berg, a 18-year-old “born free,” “but you know the bad stuff that happened.”
Right there, is strong evidence that things were better before 1994. There was not the oppression towards the Afrikaners that there is today nor was there the disparity of wealth where an Afrikaners boss would be driving multiple fancy cars.
“My family all agree, for 20 years already nothing has happened,” said Courdier...
On the contrary, South Africa has been transformed - from a pleasant and economically viable nation into a Third World sh*t hole.
And isn’t that just what Obama’s attempting in the United States?
And the new regimes in Zimbabwe and South Africa are SO much better.
What if apartheid was the only workable way to have a technological society in a majority-black country?
The whites in South Africa need to leave, right now, any way they can, even with just the shirts on their backs. As soon as the economy collapses, there will be a pogrom blaming the whites.
Good 'ole days, indeed.
