Last month, I noted in Don’t mess with the Mandelas the news that a South African mining company controlled by members of the ruling Mandela and Zuma families had dealt with illegal miners on its property by the bracing expedient of murdering them. (I have been told the victims were probably moonlighters from the mine’s regular workforce: they had not been paid for months.)

Memo to America: Rule by Blacks invariably produces bad news.
