Mike, I think this relates to my previous point about economic
empowerment and comes down to the difference between affirmative action
and economic empowerment. My understanding is that affirmative action
has not been much of a success in the US, or in SA. Although very
closely related and often confused, economic empowerment is more narrow
and as I understand is far more of a win/win.
