No Future For White South Africans?

There are serious issues with Simpson’s article and many other foreign press reports carrying similar sentiments. The first issue is the glaring bias and sloppy journalism.

The author of the BBC article says that “in South Africa you are twice as likely to be murdered if you are a White farmer than if you are a police officer — and the police here have a particularly dangerous life. The killings of farmers are often particularly brutal … the government has so far been unwilling to make solving and preventing these murders a priority”.

Firstly, it is untrue that government is not willing to solve the crime problem in South Africa. For many years crime has been a top priority of the ANC government. At one stage President Jacob Zuma appointed Bheki Cele as police commissioner, a man who declared unashamedly that police should “shoot to kill” dangerous criminals.

The South African justice system, although it may be inefficient, treats murderers equally irrespective of the race of the person killed. The man who murdered Afrikaner right-winger and farmer Eugène Terre’blanche is today serving a sentence in prison. He was prosecuted by the South African government.

What Simpson means is not that government is ignoring murder, but that the government is not making the murder of “Whites” a priority. There isn’t any proof that a White person is more likely to be killed than a Black person….
