On the Affirmative Action Policies of Malaysia, South Africa, and Fiji

What ultimately transpired in all three of these countries was a massive exodus of people (not to mention, their capital) from the nonpreferred groups (the whites from South Africa, Indians from Fiju, and Chinese from Malaysia), a loss of skills that the countries sorely needed, and major reductions of GDP. No, there hasn't been major violence as there has been in India, Sri Lanka, and other places that have also instituted these policies but if a lack of violence is seen as success that is hugely pathetic, I say.......Way to help society as a whole, you dumb central-planners.

The moral of this story is to level the playing field, not tilt it in a racist fashion, or there will be costs to right the injustice (of which $2.5 million might be the smallest)

And as Thomas Sowell has pointed out, the blacks of America were making progress at a greater clip BEFORE Mr.s Johnson and Nixon started monkeying around with these policies.
