Theft robbery

OPINION - This was NOT motivated by poverty

THE JUNE/JULY 2021 'SHOPPING WITHOUT COMPENSATION' (SWC) exercise ... WHO ACTUALLY GAINED FROM THIS ???

My understanding:

(i) The poor had free meat and alcohol for a few days, after wholesale raiding and detruction... hence there were wild parties on the streets ...for a few days ...

(ii) A couple of days later, they ended up realising that they had eaten all the meat and drunk all the alcohol, and couldn't buy food ... since all the shops had been destroyed ...

They then had to walk kilometers to areas that hadn't been destroyed to buy essentials like bread and milk, only to be kicked out by Community Protection Units, who were protecting their families and businesses ....

Hopefully they have learned that if you STEAL AND DESTROY you will be worse off in the longer term ...

Many press reports indicate that rioters have now regretted their actions ...

(iii) Possibly the ONLY WINNERS were the 'rich Blacks' who drove their SUVs to shops where they stole TVs, fridges, stoves etc ... in the name of 'transformation' ...

We saw queues of fancy cars and SUVs who were waiting in line to steal stuff.

This was NOT motivated by poverty ... it was simply motivated by the philosophy of GREED ... i.e. if there is an opportunity to steal, I must take it up ...

Arising from the above, once again our 'poor Blacks citizens ' lost out whilst 'rich Black people' benefited ....and lost nothing ....

ALTERNATIVE VIEWS ON THE ABOVE ???
