W(h)ither the whites? - City Press
In 1994, on a per capita basis, black South Africans could expect to receive approximately 12 cents for every rand received by a white South African. In 2012, almost 20 years into our democracy, black South Africans were receiving only 13 cents for every rand received by white people.
Here it must be explained that the key driver of such continued inequality is not white wealth but, rather, abysmal education and labour-market outcomes for black South Africans.
We estimate that, on current trends, only 40% of black South African children are set to pass matric, and only 4% are set to pass maths in matric.
