Mixed reaction to BBC report
A BBC report questioned whether white South Africans have a future in a post-apartheid country.
JOHANNESBURG - There was mixed reaction on Monday to a British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) report which questioned whether white South Africans have a future in a post-apartheid country.
The BBC's senior foreign writer John Simpson reported that while some whites have the best houses and jobs, below the surface there is poverty and a sense of growing vulnerability.
Independent analyst Daniel Silke said this was a slanted view because many white communities continued to enjoy a high standard of living.
"This is selective reporting. I don't think this report has any impact on the domestic political situation. I think what it does, since it comes from a prominent broadcaster is that it adds to the state of confusion and a generally negative view of South Africa."
