"Our economy was better under white people." A lady recently caused a stir after saying this.

As you might know before democracy South Africa was under the Apartheid government mostly lead by the white people and Afrikaners. There was a lot of discrimination at that time and democracy brought in equality. With that said a lady recently caused a stir after posting this on social media. She posted and said "Our economy was better under white people." See the post she made on Twitter down below.

People commented under the post and had a lot of things to say. Someone commented and said "All I am saying, now we all eating. Black people live in top estates, kids go to top schools and are securing high job posts. At first, those were for the other race. At least say we need better leadership, don't praise white leadership." Another person commented and said "No it was not. Also it’s not our economy it was the whites economy. English-speaking, then Afrikaans-speaking Whites prospered under the system of apartheid. In 1990 de Klerk recognised the economic unsustainability of the burden of international sanctions and had to release Mandela." See some of the other comments people left under the post down below.
