To Whom Will The Future Belong ?

Legum, Colin

New Republic;10/10/55, Vol. 133 Issue 15, p9
The article presents information on the relationship between the elite of Africa and the West, and the relationship between the elite and the backward people of their own countries, with whom, often, they have much less in common than with people in the West. Contrary to what one might expect, relations between these elites and the White communities is generally worse than it is between the backward, under-developed Africans and Whites. Thus the White community of South Africa, while getting on relatively well with the raw African, is engaged in a bitter struggle with the African elite.
