A nation mourns?
History has repeatedly shown us that the majority of black Africans in Southern Africa are a loud, unruly, and undisciplined bunch whenever they assemble in a crowd. The entire world noticed this unruly trait during the 2010 FIFA World Cup and again today at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg, during Nelson Mandela's memorial.
Ramaphosa urges crowd to show restraint
In most cultures discipline (or more specifically self-discipline) is recognized as an essential attribute on the ultimate path towards success. Most successful people, including black Africans, understand this well. For the half-schooled and unschooled majority, however, behaving in an undisciplined fashion is their way of showing disapproval, irrespective of whom they harm (or sometimes kill) in the process. It is also their way of getting what they want… FOR FREE! Ill-disciplined kids behave in the exact same fashion.
This sort of behaviour speaks volumes in the game of South African democrazy politics, but that will be a posting for another day.
