Affirmative Action Hurt Blacks in South Africa

I have discussed the damage from and injustice of affirmative action here extensively before, both in general terms as well as in practice in the specific examples of America and Malaysia.

Here is a interesting article from Rhoda Kadalie, a coloured South African woman basically in favor of the principle of affirmative action, who tells how the zealous application of affirmative action in South Africa may have benefited the few blacks who have been hired on that basis, but how it have meant not only increasing waste and inefficency, but have also damaged the poor blacks who have seen the quality of services deteriorate as a result of that policy.
