...America enjoyed 200 years in the economic and political sun under a white majority.

Literal pre-Civil War racism from this guy and he's not even fucking American.

As with most of the other disasters of the 20th century, we can blame the British Colonial Service for the current state of Zimbabwe.

Kissinger, for all his numerous other failings, was a hardnosed practicalist, and had Ian Smith on the verge of a settlement for enfranchisement of the Rhodesian majority when the Foreign Office interfered because all parties in the discussions preferred the negotiated timetable over their expedited version.

ZANU, as the most potent organization for black nationalism, swept the elections, and there's been decades of Robert Mugabe ever since.

Its a self fulfilling prophecy.Europe colonized, suppressed pretty much in the globe in the name of the "superior race". And now that everyone is recovering from that some people somehow wonder "If we can do it why can't they?". It's like breaking someone's legs and then tell them you're better than them because you're winning a race against them.

That statement really belies a lack of understanding of the historical and global forces that have influenced Zimbabwe as a nation to be economically less prosperous, relatively, to its European and North American peers.
It also ignores that if the "whites" took over it would have been obviously Spain take over and what he would think of some mocca people was running things

He makes his money peddling doom and gloom to scared, primary old, primarily white guys. I wouldn't go so far as to call him a con artist, but he's been predicting an "immienint market collapse and so you better buy gold" for like the last 15 years.
