Rhodesia, Zimbabwe's antecendent, was a totally corrupt society. A lot of the people who benefitted from that corruption kept the wealth thus generated when white-rule was ended. That had to be fixed. You don't just arrest thieves, you try to get stolen property back to people.
Now its time for a reality check. The 'thieves' were also the ones who knew how to run agribusinesses, and factories. You could throw out the white owner of a car company and give it to me, but that doesn't mean I could get the company to produce cars.
A white-owned agri-business that produces 200,000 tons of food a year, given to a crony of Mugabe who was formerly a pilot, isn't going to produce much food. Pilots aren't farmers.
Mugabe isn't a saviour. He's another corrupt thief. The skin color may change, but it's still the few exploiting the many.
All that said, I can't work up too much sympathy for the Black family. That MAY be totally unfair. The salient question to me is, how hard did THEY work to end white rule when the country was still Rhodesia? They reaped the benefits of white rule. THey now suffer the penalties of black rule. If they didn't oppose the one, what's their complaint about the other?

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.
