Zimbabwe’s Only White Minister Complains About Pervasive Racism

In utterly shocking news, Zimbabwe, the former Rhodesia, is racist.
Zimbabwe’s only white government minister has said racial slurs against whites at the highest political level continue to show “a gross level of intolerance” in the southern African nation.
Education Minister David Coltart said if he made similar insults about blacks he would “rightly be branded as a sympathizer of the Nazis and the Klu Klux Klan.”
Ministerial colleagues sometimes seemed to forget he was in the same room when they made “shocking” remarks about whites, even at Cabinet meetings, he said on his Facebook page.
Of course, true leftists would say that black racism cannot exist and that anyone who perceives such a thing is really guilty of white privilege.
Coltart was an opponent of the old Rhodesia, but became an opponent of Mugabe’s Zimbabwe, and was persecuted by the Mugabe regime. It’s likely that sooner or later, Mugabe, or some other local force, will finish him off, either on the old pretext of the Nkala case, or just through a “random” act of violence.
