In the U.S. we have the Democratic party. People who cannot produce, loot, and they call their looting "social justice".
Zimbabwe used to be the bread basket that grew food for Africa and now that Obama’s people took control of the farms they now import food.

"...Zimbabwes government began seizing sprawling white-owned commercial farms..."
They seized pretty much everything that was white-owned - "sprawling" or otherwise.
"Mr. Mugabe has ruled the country since its independence in 1980..."
The NY Times has an interesting understanding of the word "independence."

Is that any worse than requiring that a certain portion of US Government contracts be given to Minority contractors?
Is it different than quotas being set here in the United States.?

Why does the media continue to refer to Zimbabwe's "independence in 1980"? The country declared its independence in 1965 and was ruled by blacks beginning in 1978.

Indigenization is a core feature of the values of our party: freedom, equality, peace.

Mr. Mugabe has ruled the country since its independence in 1980 but has seen his popularity recede considerably in recent years.
This might be one reason:
And another (from the CIA's World Fact Book):
"Unemployment rate: 95% (2009 est.) note: figures reflect underemployment; true unemployment is unknown and, under current economic conditions, unknowable" (kinda like reporting U.S. figures)
