It's the fault of the other 105 percent!

I was listening to a BBC World Service report on affirmative action in South Africa. The report mentioned how under the old apartheid system, poor whites were guaranteed jobs.

Now, such perks are no longer available to whites.

One bitter white South African bemoaned, "You go to a company now and they tell you it's 55% black, 40% coloured (mixed race), 5% Indian and 5% white" and won't give you a job.

Perhaps the reason the man can't get a job is because he thinks that 55 plus 40 plus 5 plus 5 adds up to 100.
