Just after Clive Rice pointed out that race based selection rules have weakened the South African team’s chances in the Cricket world cup, it has been announced that South African rugby squads will include seven non-white players in 23-man match squads in the run-up to this year’s World Cup in England, starting in September.
At least two of the seven non-whites in this year’s squads must be black Africans, distinguishing them from players of mixed race who have long played a role in Springbok teams. RNZ says the inclusion of seven non-whites will be a challenge for the Springboks coach Heyneke Meyer, whose starting fifteen right now would probably include only one black African and two mixed race players.
Once there were massive demonstrations in NZ because the NZ Rugby team did not include players of Maori blood during tours of Sth Africa. Now the situation is reversed with Sth Africa excluding players of white skin, the silence is deafening.
Those with a brain know it was really all about installing a communist govt in Sth Africa. The left see the destruction of what they call “white power structures” as key to their plans for gradual subversion of all western democracies. Its why racism is only ever called out when its white on black and reverse racism gets a free pass.
Oh well, I guess South Africa can kiss goodbye to the Rugby World cup. The left don’t care. They’ve made their point.
