South Africa likely to allow expropriation of white-owned farrmland without compensation as reparations

South Africa is planning constitutional changes that would allow expropriation of some lands from white landowners and giving it to blacks, a kind of reparation for apartheid, without compensation.

However, left-wing leadership has claimed that some white farmers had owned land occurred by criminality in the past, colonialism and more.

South Africa says that the seizures have happened when negotiations on tribal claims have broken down. 

Could such a measure lead to more talk of reparations in the U.S.?

Critics say this could lead to a Venezuela-like crisis in food production.
