      Guessing homey either doesn’t know about Elon’s dad being kind of a piece of shit too, or was just meme’ing and didn’t expect anyone to think about it that hard.

        I mean, the dude made all the South African emerald money that Elon relied on to stay rich, so I don’t see how anyone could think he was a good guy. So it’s probably the second thing.

    His grandfather was also a very successful chiropractor in Canada, owning a 20 room house and a private plane from damaging people’s spines for a living and helped popularize the pseudoscience of Chiropractics in Canada.

      I think they just mean “a mine in the south of Africa” which is confusing because they decided to name a country South Africa too.
