Did you know that they made their wealth from the direct support of the apartheid government and the oppression and land dispossession of blacks? Did you know they haven’t said sorry for all those atrocities against blacks? Did you know they haven’t returned the land they stole from blacks? Did you know they have not paid reparations for the thousands of blacks who died in the mines making them wealthy?
