I don't know if they are.  Anyone claiming that whites are opressed should provide a reliable source.

There is strong affirmative pro-black enforcement in all lines of work in SA but no white in SA will deny it's well-deserved and fair.

Every source has bias, but some cites try to minimize their bias.  Snopes and fact check are reliable.

White South Africans enjoy more wealth, property ownership, and social status on average, especially due to the legacy of apartheid. Colored South Africans wouldn't be as poor and uneducated as they are now if it weren't for many decades of apartheid. That being said, they do face discrimination in affirmative action styled programs. I presume there is also more violence towards them on behalf of black communities than vice versa.

Tons of affirmative action programs. Some of having their land ripped away from them because they are white.

I thought Africans were all black. Didn't know a white African-American could exist.
