Eureka is a New South African Settlement for White People Only

It looks like White South Africans are at it again.

Eureka is a small settlement in the Northern province of South Africa that is owned by a White Afrikaans man named Adriaan Niewoudt. He has promised to give (yes, for free) a 1000 square meter piece of land to anyone who is of course a White Afrikaans South African.


One cannot blame South Africans for calling Nelson Mandela's beloved "rainbow nation" an absolute sham. Twenty-four years into the country's democracy and White people not only own the economy (quite literally) but they are allowed to get away with establishing "Whites-only" settlements. In fact, White Afrikaans people in particular are adamant about establishing their "volkstaat" - a province of their own within South Africa that will not be under the rule of a Black government and will save them from the white genocide that is of course, not happening.

Speaking on why Eureka even exists, Niewoudt says:

"Eureka is a serious attempt to re-establish our white people in safety. Here we empower the entire white race to independently, for yourself, with our own means, in our own fatherland, build a future. We have already waited too long. No one may prevent us from doing so. In this way we can again let the white race, without bloodshed, acquire a piece of their birth land."

What settlements like Eureka show is that racial tensions in South Africa are far from being healed. Apartheid is not simply "a past to get over" but a reality of today. White supremacy is continuing to thrive unabated and one can only begin to imagine the repercussions for a country striving towards non-racialism.
