Report blames unrest in South Africa on critical race theory

The nation of South Africa has been devastated by more than a week of deadly, destructive riots and looting — and one outlet claims to know why.

According to Revolver News, the unrest, sparked by the arrest of the former South African President Jacob Zuma, may have been at least partially motivated by the perpetuation of the so-called critical race theory (CRT), which the outlet says is integral to the current South African government.

CRT, which is being pushed hard in America by progressives, posits in part that “systemic racism” plays a role in oppressing people of color.

“Attempted coup”

The BBC recently reported that the deadly unrest had stemmed from outrage among supporters of former President Zuma following his arrest on contempt of court charges, which resulted following his refusal to cooperate with a large-scale inquiry into alleged corruption during his tenure in office.

That investigation by the administration of current President Cyril Ramaphosa apparently deepened an already highly partisan rift — and, according to unnamed sources within the ruling African National Congress (ANC), allowed for the spontaneous protests following Zuma’s arrest to be exploited by an unnamed “third force” within the country that remains sympathetic to the former president.

Ramaphosa, for his part, has claimed that the widespread violence is part of an “attempted coup” and “insurrection” against him that was pre-planned and includes deliberate acts of “economic sabotage” intended to weaken his administration.

“Deep-seated grievances”

ABC News reports that the unrest has resulted in hundreds of deaths and thousands of arrests, as well as massive deployments of police and soldiers to restore the peace.

ABC suggested the riots and violence were largely attributable to the split between those loyal to Ramaphosa and those supportive of Zuma.

However, as ABC noted, “the protests appear to have reawakened deep-seated grievances over persistent poverty, unemployment and inequality, some 27 years after apartheid ended.” And that, according to Revolver, is where critical race theory comes into play, as it essentially undergirds the formation of the post-apartheid government structure, the outlet said.

Revolver argued that South Africa has suffered from “persistent poverty,” absurdly high unemployment, and deep racial inequality in large part because of how its ruling regime has injected the issue of race into everything, including via a decades-old policy known as Broad-Based Black Economic Employment, or BBBEE.

That policy utilizes so-called scorecards to measure companies on diversity, including how many Black workers they employ and how many Black professionals have been elevated to leadership roles.

The policy grants “favorable tax treatment and preferences in government contracts” to companies that score high, according to Revolver. It’s controversial, to say the least — and that’s only the beginning.
