I wonder why South Africa is such a s--thole?

From Sky News:
People angered by a "racist" advert for H&M have ransacked some of the clothing chain's stores in South Africa.

Protesters from the left-wing Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) group targeted six shops in Gauteng province, police said.

Video posted on social media showed racks of clothes being pushed to the floor.

In one location, rubber bullets were fired to disperse demonstrators. While officers are monitoring the situation, they said they had not made any arrests so far.
They chose to riot over this hoodie:

EFF's Floyd Shivambu tweeted after the incident: "That @hm nonsense of a clothing store is now facing consequences for its racism. All rational people should agree that the store should not be allowed to continue operating in South Africa."


"[IMPORTANT NOTICE]: All the stores of that racist retailer @hmsouthafrica are CLOSED. Racism must fall and we will never tip toe around racists," he wrote in another tweet.


The "Economic Freedom Fighters" are a Marxist-Leninist party in South Africa whose leaders have openly said they want to kill all white people.



They're the third largest party in the country.

Their members were seen dancing in celebration over the destruction of the store:


EFF leader Julius Malema defended the destruction of H&M's stores, saying no one should be allowed to "make jokes" about black people.

"No one should make jokes about the dignity of black people and is left unattended to," Malema said. "We make no apology about what the fighters did today against that store called H&M."

"We are not going to allow anyone to use the colour of our skin to humiliate us, to exclude us. We are black we are proud, we are black we are beautiful. We are black and we are not ashamed of being black."


This is what the Democratic Party and Republicans like Lindsey Graham want for America.
