Trouble in South Africa

So who are the poor downtrodden blacks going to blame now?
It can hardly be the whiteys bosses fault this time.
PS
I was interested to notice most of the Police still appear to be white, and hey, still beating up blacks, only this time on the orders of other blacks.
My my its a funny old world.

My understanding of the situation is that race has nothing to do with it, the natives are going after the "illegal aliens" from Zimbabwe. There is a serious food crisis going on in the poor parts of the world that is forcing entire populations to be on the move into richer countries where their are subsistence jobs to be had. Thanks to Ethanol, the US doesn't have the kind of surpluses it used to have to act as a safety valve for the poor countries of the world. I think South Africa is giving us a preview of what the future looks like - as economies that have little oil or food contract, nativism and xenophophia will rear its ugly head. We are entering a period of great instability in the world. The real one to be concerned with is Pakistan, they have too many people, no oil, not enough food, Osama Bin Laden running around, and nukes.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

Pertaining to South Africa, wasn't quite sure what to make of this pic in the New York Times the other day until I read the caption:

A policeman used a fire extinguisher to try to save a man who had been set on fire by a mob during anti-immigrant clashes.
