    "Genoeg is genoeg." ''Enough is Enough'' as White Farmers protest at Murder Rate in S.A.

    "Genoeg is genoeg." - ''Enough is Enough'' as White Farmers protest at the Murder Rate in South Africa

    South Africa has a huge problem with the murder of its citizens - topping near 20,000 a year out of a pop of approx. 55 Million

    While the rural murder rate is a lot lower - amongst rural White farmers it is very high

    Thousands have been murdered since the end of Apartheid and the numbers are now on the rise once again.

    There is a line of argument that while robbery may well be a motive the inclusion of racist overtones cannot be ruled out either

    Hopefully by organising themselves they can draw International attention to the way they are being treated:

    "Genoeg is genoeg." - Enough is enough. That was the message on Monday, as (mostly white) activists carried crosses and blocked roads to demand better protection for South Africa's farms, after they were targeted in a spate of murders.
    The South African Police Service has argued that the majority of attackers are motivated purely by a desire to rob farmers, but the country's Institute of Race Relations has warned there may be a racial element to some of the attacks.
    There's a sense in some quarters that white farmers are being targeted in particular.

    From your own link:

    Guesstimation
    We could try and guesstimate, by making various assumptions about how many farmers there are now, how many are white and how many people live on their farms.
    South Africa's Institute of Race Relations has attempted to do so here.
    But as they explain in their analysis, small changes to those assumptions can make huge differences to the estimated murder rate. On some sets of assumptions, the farm murder rate is no higher than the national average.
    Fellow fact-checkers Africa Check discuss further pitfalls here.
    In short - we have no clear idea about the murder rate on South African farms.
    And because of that, the claim being made by protesters about farmers being more likely to be murdered is not supported by reliable data.
    But sure, blacks are savages, right?

    South Africa is what awaits Europe and North America if immigration continues.

    This isn't really a surprise though, is it? It hasn't got much attention but black people can't be racist, apparently. Black Africans simply cannot govern themselves. Nobody wants to see the return of Apartheid, but Africa is governed largely by black parasitic dictators who are bleeding it dry and is far worse off now than it ever has been. Billions are being pumped into Africa in Foreign Aid and much of it is being siphoned off into the private offshore accounts of it's politicians.

    Umm... You do realise the immigrants to South Africa are the white ones?

    Do you?

    The southern tip of South Africa was not inhabited by Negros when the Dutch arrived

    - but by the San people IIRC

    - who are not Black

    Also South Africa also has a considerable number of people of south Asian origins

    Ever see the film 'Ghandi'?

    Also the Cape Coloureds of Capetown are recognised as a separate racial group

    I wish you idiots could be rounded up and given a one way flight to Nigeria. When you see reality in the rough you might not be so open with other peoples rights and hard won freedoms..

    Most ignorant and nakedly racist post of the week.
    Quite an achievement given the amount of ignorant and racist posters that infest this site
