  •  1994 saw the elimination of the apartheid state (6+ / 0-)

    but to my knowledge the afrikaaners and white south africans continued to exist well enough in the new country, even when the white-run constitutional regime changed into something else.

    ending a state predicated upon the supremacy of one ethnic group over another in a mixed population, and eliminating those privileges in favor of legal equality is not the same as eliminating that ethnic group. the dixiecrats and right wing afrikaaners and ulstermen argued differently, but their claims were not borne out by what happened next.

    •  White South Africans are... (0+ / 0-)

      leaving South Africa at a very high rate. I think over 1 million have left since 1994.

      The US south is different because white southerners are a majority in every state.

      Israel will never accept a one-state solution. The perfect example is to the north in Lebanon. Lebanon originally had a Christian majority. Over the years the higher Muslim birth rate and Christian emigration eroded that majority. A 15 year civil war broke out in the mid 70s.
