New York Times confession: Life was better for Zimbabweans under (cringe) "nasty racist white regime."

The New York Times ran a column today with surprisingly frank commentary about how much worse Zimbabweans are under black rule than under white rule.

The column is written by Nicholas Kristof, a hard core leftist, who says he cringes at the thought of whites treating black people better than they treat each other. While he admits that black rule is a total disaster, he mocks the plights of the remaining whites in Zimbabwe. Kristof, who is a Romanian born Armenian, calls on white people to be more concerned for the Negroes of Zimbabwe and less concerned for the whites.

Then after describing how dismal the situation is, he claims that Zimbabweans can still have a great country. They just need more democracy. Kristof even tells a huge whopper of a lie about crime. He makes the absolutely absurd claim that Zimbabwe has low crime. He also fails to mention that every single other black ruled nation on earth is just as or nearly as dismal.

The belief in multi-multiculturalism and racial equality truly is a religious belief. It has no scientific backing and must be believed purely on faith. Kristof is a true believer. He is obviously a fanatical member of this cult to admit the obvious then make such absurd claims about Zimbabwe’s alleged potential.

From New York Times…

In a week of surreptitious reporting here (committing journalism can be a criminal offense in Zimbabwe), ordinary people said time and again that life had been better under the old, racist, white regime of what was then called Rhodesia.

“When the country changed from Rhodesia to Zimbabwe, we were very excited,” one man, Kizita, told me in a village of mud-walled huts near this town in western Zimbabwe. “But we didn’t realize the ones we chased away were better and the ones we put in power would oppress us.”

“It would have been better if whites had continued to rule because the money would have continued to come,” added a neighbor, a 58-year-old farmer named Isaac. “It was better under Rhodesia. Then we could get jobs. Things were cheaper in stores. Now we have no money, no food.”

Over and over, I cringed as I heard Africans wax nostalgic about a nasty, oppressive regime run by a tiny white elite. Black Zimbabweans responded that at least that regime was more competent than today’s nasty, oppressive regime run by the tiny black elite that surrounds Mr. Mugabe.
