I guess that's what Rhodesians have been saying for decades.
So what's going on there now?

depends on the reason

What does that mean?

The reason is the race!

Obviously אאע"ה trusted Eliezer and a lot more (דולה ומשקה מתורת רבו, etc. etc.) Yet when it came to the Shidduch it was refused solely on the grounds of race (as it is nowadays called).

I really like this post- more then just liking the post would show.

But there's no evidence that your post can help feed the kids. While it has been well established in these circles that actual Likes help eradicate hunger.  ;D

IINM there are additional references to Like being fed, other than the original @Freddie post, though he definitely gets the credit for making us all aware of this amazing property of Likes.

Switch blacks for "Jews" and see how it reads.

And you'd be cool with a non Jewish Borough Park expat saying that?

Eh, I don't really want to go down the racism road with you again. Suffice to say no one here got offended by a differing opinion, so much as pointed out that you referred to a singular political party as an entire race, and implied they are all idiots aside from one atypically smart dude. You then doubled down on it ("same difference" - which is more akin to saying "All Jews are <Insert Israeli Political Party You Dislike Here> than your Simcha Felder analogy.) When you say "the blacks" and the ANC are "same difference" are you including Mmusi Maimane? Julius Malema? Robert Mugabe?

FWIW, I agree with you that Rhamaphosa is a sharp man who is an excellent choice for the ANC, and can hopefully do a lot of good for the country.
