So what about this? (I know it's RT and I hate it.)

Parliament has literally voted to implement racist policies against white people.

No they haven't! Everyone knows you can't be racist against white people! ^/s

Anyways, these 2 videos probably describe what will happen if they actually go for it:

And I say this as someone who isn't exactly 100% against land expropiation. But it should follow some rules:

1) The land expropiated should be either
-Not in use (ie just left there)
-Going to be used for some public works project (say, building a railroad)

2) It should always include some sort of compensation.

3) It must not be done in an arbitrary manner. Especially not done on a racist basis.

I mean, comparing it to our "land reform" back in the 30s, even the Spanish Republic didn't dare to expropiate without compensation except to those who supported the 1932 coup.

On a sidenote, how is South Africa's land distribution? Is it concentrated on a small amount of landowners?

Why wouldn't the ANC's justification for taking property from whites also not be valid in the United States? Why would non-whites in the United States not do something similar if they were an absolute majority of the electorate?
Because the culture, politics, and history of the U.S. are vastly different than SA. Plus, we don't have "ethnic" parties here.

I thought in some states whites voted 90%+ republican and blacks 90%+ democrat?

I think that does qualify as "ethnic" parties at least at the state level.
