The South African Communist Party, often dismissed as a Cold War icon, is stronger than ever and manipulating the ruling African National Congress from behind the scenes…

Behind the scenes??? The ANC has been an unofficial arm of the SACP since it was founded.

membership in the ANC has declined radically as the emerging black middle class has become discouraged by crime and the slide of the nation's currency, the rand.

What exactly does middle class mean in a third world country that’s rapidly sliding into the stone age?

Of course, this is not exactly news to those of us who read. The communist influence in the ANC has been there since day one. They kept Mandela and his movement going for years.
I know that there are perhaps millions of white people who are truly nothing but citizens of the their respective countries on the Dark Continent but if they value their lives they will leave their homes and save their lives. The entire continent seems hell-bent on chaos and destruction. Nothing that well-meaning outsiders can do can turn the tide.

FYI ... South Africa was NOT a " third world country " ! Even with the damned ANC in power, it hasn't fallen into that status; yet.

There has been and IS a vibrant black middle class ! They are educated, some have more money than many white Americans, and not all of them were / are pro ANCers.

You are 100 % correct about the ANC and the SACP ! That's what the WEST was kept ignorant of , whilst the bleeding hearts LIBERALS attempted to get Mandela ( a KNOWN COMMIE ! ) into the presidency.

South Africa was NEVER a " third world country " and it has yet to reach that level; even with the damned ANC in power.

There has been, for a very long time, zand still IS a vibrant, well educated black middle class there. Some of whom , preMandela days, were far wealthier, than many American whites. There are still some , and they were not / are not pro the Commies / the ANC. Those, with computer skills and the like, have made a mass exodus, to places that will take them. Some are even in the USA.

The rest of your post, though, is 100 % accurate. :-)
