Their former President has been arrested for failing to appear at court for a corruption hearing. His supporters aren't having it.
Ah... that old song and dance. Thankfully that would never happen here. We care too much about the democratic process and accept defeat graciously. Wait. That's what we USED to do - now we just say it's rigged and there's no way our fearless leader could have been beaten in a fair election.

This confuses me. Some of the posts call the whites and blacks that live together the “Colored” people. And then it’s just the “Blacks” that are rioting. And it’s the “Whites” when referring to the segregated neighborhoods.

It’s a vestige of apartheid....

Coloured, formerly Cape Coloured, a person of mixed European (“white”) and African (“black”) or Asian ancestry, as officially defined by the South African government from 1950 to 1991.

Coloureds (Afrikaans: Kleurlinge or Bruinmense, lit. "Brown people") are a multiracial ethnic group native to Southern Africa who have ancestry from more than one of the various populations inhabiting the region, including Khoisan, Bantu, European, Austronesian, East Asian or South Asian.

Yeah. That's the problem. We don't jail political opponents here and generally for good reason. The people who called for Bush and Cheney to be brought up on war crimes charges were idiots.

But, say the Trump tax investigation turns up something big. To be clear I think that's highly unlikely but it's possible. Trump goes to jail for tax evasion and we are going to have a bad time.

Add in Trump junior tweeting out to burn it all down and we’re on to something.

I’m trying to follow a discussion on their version of orangepower and they’re saying pretty much the same thing.

They boiled it down for me, to those who work vs those who are immigrating for work. I guess the haves and have nots basically and of course, outsiders and influential insiders stirring the pot depending on their own buzz words.

Some are trying to frame it as a race war but the videos show different.

Some are saying it’s a class war as I just previously said.

Some are saying it’s the ruling class mired in corruption but that’s literally everywhere.

General consensus is the ruling party got so corrupt that the entire system crashed. Allowing people to choose sides based on the above 3 scenarios and which pertains to them. In general, chaos.

All terrible politics aside, that is some downright horrendous grammar. "Let them rip their fruits"? Jesus H, did he mean reap ?? How do you mess that up so bad.

This is what 'eating the rich' means to a lot of people here. Ironically it's mostly wealthy white kids that chant this but for some reason don't think it pertains to them and their own families.

I honestly can't tell much difference between this and BLM marches in St Louis last year when they broke into that neighborhood. Disgusting.
