Do not listen to number 5. First off, South africa isn't run by Nelson Mandela anymore. They now have Thabo Mbeki. According to South Africans, mandela was much better and he actually levelled the races out, not giving one a boost while denying the others.
However, currently 'apartheid' has been turned around, with black people (mostly illiterate, due to poverty) being given jobs they can't spell, let alone handle, as part of the black regime's 'Affirmative Action' plan.
Crime in South Africa is overrated. In the suburbs and cities crime is marginal. Sadly this is not the case in the less-developed areas ("townships", where the poverity-stricken people live in shacks), where crime is rampant.
Again, unlike nr. 5 says, freedom of speech is a large factor in South Africa.
One of the bigger problems the country experiences is that a large chunk of the 90-something% people in the country who are black, feel everything should fall into their laps, because "we were treated badly during apartheid". Thusly, they tend to strike for months if they don't get what they want.
Other than that, it's an AWESOME country, with beaches, game-parks, and mountians, etc.
What do you want me to say here?! See above for info about south africa.
