Love and Hate in South Africa

A few months ago, some of my fellow "clergy" in Lynchburg, Virginia, got agitated when I wrote criticizing those who supported sanctions against South Africa. I argued that those who supported the sanctions "hated the Whites more than they loved the Blacks."

Though stark, doesn't this cut through a lot of the confusion and hypocrisy that we hear concerning this dear country? My argument consisted of the fact that sanctions definitely hurt Black South Africans more than Whites, and that pro-sanction people were more in love with the idea of hurting Whites than helping Blacks.
