Tax explained

A South African spin to an old story so Blacks can understand what
happens to taxes, tax cuts and what happens when Whites leave:

Suppose there are ten men who go to dinner every night. Six of them are
Black, one Coloured, one Indian and two Whites. The one White guy is
middleclass and the other is rich. If they paid their bill the way we
pay our taxes, it would go something like this:

The bill comes to R1000, but four Blacks pay nothing, they eat for free
every night. Two Blacks pay a share of R20 and R30 each. The Coloured
guy pays R100, the Indian pays R150, the middle class White guy pays
R200 and the rich White guy pays R500.

Everything went well. The ten men ate happily every night until one day
the restaurant owner said that they were such good customers he was
going to give them a break so he reduced the bill with R200. (In tax
language a tax cut).

So the first four Black guys were basically unaffected by this and still
ate for free, but the six others started thinking about how they would
split the R200 cut in the Bill so everyone would get his fair share.

R200 divided by six would mean R33.33 each. But if they subtracted that
from everybody's share, then the two paying Blacks would end up being
PAID to eat their meal. So the restaurant owner suggested that it would
be fair to reduce each man's bill by roughly the same amount, and he
proceeded to work out the amounts each should pay.

So the first paying Black guy that night only had to pay R16, the second
paying Black guy only paid R24, the coloured guy paid R80, the Indian
guy R120, the middleclass White guy paid R160 and the rich White guy
paid R400 instead of his usual R500. Each of the original six paying
ones were better off than before. The first four Black guys still got
their meal for free.

But once outside the restaurant, the men began to compare their savings.

The first paying black said he only got R4 from the R20. The second
Black guy said he only saved R6. The Coloured and the Indian guys were a
bit grumpy that they only got R20 and R30 off their usual bill, but
otherwise they were happy that they paid less that night.

"Wait a minute," yelled the first four Black men in unison, "We didn't
get anything at all. The system exploits the poor!"

The Blacks looked at the middle class White guy who got R40 from the
R200 discount and the rich White guy who got a whopping R100 and they
became bitter about it.

So the six Blacks surrounded the two White guys, beat them up and stole
what they had on them.

The next night the men met again for dinner, but noticeably absent were
the two White men who decided to go to another restaurant and not eat
with them anymore.

At first nobody missed the two White guys and they all sat down and ate
without them, but then the bill came and to their horror they discovered
that they were now R560 short of paying their bill. Imagine that!

And that dear fellows... is how it works when you tax White people to
death, beat them up and steal from them. They will just not show up at
the table anymore and will just decide to go have dinner somewhere else,
which means that you will be on your own and will have to pay all the
bills yourself, and there will be no more free lunches, you will catch
rats and scratch in dustbins just like in Zimbabwe after the Whites have
