WE all know that racists - especially South African ones - are white. We also know that ending apartheid in South Africa in 1994 was a happy-ever-after story.
Now welcome to the brutal truth.
South Africa is sliding back into a new racial divide, perhaps even a new apartheid. And this time most of the racists and thugs are black.
What's more, it is also sliding into an anarchy so terrible that already almost 20,000 South Africans are murdered each year - a killing rate three times higher, pro rata, than Iraq's.
