Series on South Africa Sheds Some New Light on Dark Spot in World

May 12, 1990

I've read with resentment and contempt the past few days about the plight of those poor, disillusioned South Africans because they are not allowed to race against international competition. I find their plight amusing compared to the millions of blacks there who are oppressed and persecuted.

I also found it amusing that every Afrikaner interviewed (including Zola Budd, wonder of wonders) said they were opposed to apartheid. Of course, what else would they say? To say they supported it would not do much in the eyes of the world to sympathize with them, would it?
