“Rainbow Nation” is how South African President Nelson Mandela, who was newly elected in 1994, called the inhabitants of his country the same. Soon the term was borrowed by one of his compatriots, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, who dubbed South Africa as a "rainbow nation" post-apartheid ...
At the present stage, the population of South Africa is multicultural. Representatives of various races and ethnic groups live on the territory of the country. The oldest, originally indigenous people of South Africa are Bushmen. From the XV century, they began to actively push out alien nomadic peoples. It is their descendants that now make up the majority of the country's population. These are Zulu, Spit, Tswana, Ndebele, Tsonga, Pedi, Suto, Swazi, Venda. During the period of colonization, people from India were brought into the country to work on sugarcane plantations.
As a result, about 80% of black Africans, including immigrants from neighboring countries, in particular, from Zimbabwe, now reside in the territory of the South African Republic. The white population (Anglo-Africans, descendants of the Boers, Germans, Portuguese and French) is only 10%. Another 8% is represented by the so-called "color" - the descendants of mixed marriages of the early settlers with the indigenous people of South Africa. The remaining 2% of the country's population are descendants of Indians.
Such racial and national diversity in the country, on the one hand, always promoted cultural interchange, and on the other, was the reason for the separation of some groups of the population from others. No matter how much one wants to be tolerant and politically correct, one must still recognize that in such a case — and South Africa is the most vivid example — the separation of local and newcomers is a pattern. The way of life and way of thinking of Europeans and black Africans was and is too different.
Too different to live together
Until the middle of the 20th century, the authorities in South Africa could not share the Boers and the English who were interested in the country's rich natural resources. As a result of the Anglo-Boer Wars and the subsequent political processes in 1948, power in South Africa completely shifted to the Boers. In the same year, the apartheid regime was introduced, which was canceled only in 1994.
As a result, forty-six years of apartheid, that is, the separate residence of white people of European descent and black Africans and, according to the leader of Afrikaner, Dr. Dan Roodt, only about 7 thousand killed in clashes with police of local criminals. But twenty years of democracy brought more than 70 thousand killed, raped and physically injured white, plus thousands of innocent blacks who died at the hands of their own brothers.
Today the situation in the country is extremely unstable. This is manifested, first of all, in the level of crime, originating mainly from the environment of blacks, and in discrimination against white citizens in virtually all spheres of life. It should be emphasized that whites in South Africa (the second place are Indians) are the most educated and able-bodied representatives of the country. Readiness for difficulties and vitality, worked out by their ancestors, are firmly embedded in the genes of modern Afrikaners. They are not afraid of work. In view of the fact that since the fall of apartheid the Black Government systematically deprives white citizens of the rights to adequately paid skilled work, they undertake any proposed work, the quality of which remains at a high level. Posts that require special training, knowledge, a certain level of skill, are increasingly occupied by unqualified black Africans.
Native Africans, it must be admitted, are not the most intellectually developed race on earth. But this is not a reproach or an attempt to discriminate them, it is just a statement of fact. People, from the moment Homo Sapiens appeared until the 16th century (when Africa began to colonize), living in the traditional way of life, which has remained virtually unchanged in the entire history of the African continent, cannot suddenly make a leap in development overnight.
But the Europeans have not passed one stage of development before reaching the level at which we are now. Africans did not have the conditions for the gradual evolution of consciousness. Therefore, since the arrival of the European colonialists in Africa, its inhabitants had to automatically accept an absolutely uncharacteristic way of life. Formally, they did it, and even successfully, but the internal traditional settings have not changed. And to reproach them for this would be unfair.
However, the whites never demanded instant changes from the aborigines, because throughout the history of colonization, black people were offered a work feasible for them, meeting their physical and intellectual capabilities ...
Today, the situation with jobs looks dual, as, indeed, everything that concerns the black and white matter. On the one hand, having implemented the BEE (Black Empowerment Economy) policy, which is precisely to provide the black people of South Africa with the best jobs with good pay, in the past, "oppressed" received many privileges after graduation, and as a result, more high quality of life. On the other hand, the level of education in South Africa was forced to decline at the legislative level due to the fact that Africans are not able to absorb the material so well to pass the exams. By the way, the quality of education in South Africa during the apartheid period was one of the highest in the world.
Returning to the topic, I would like to emphasize that it is not a matter of a bad education system, or lack of staff, but of natural abilities. Africans, of course, have other inborn data, for example, they are surprisingly plastic, nature itself has created them for dancing and music - almost all have excellent hearing and soft voices. But in order to achieve the necessary statistics in the literacy and education level of the population, schools and universities had to lower standards, so that black students could easily pass the necessary minimum. Accordingly, specialists leave the universities at all the level that is necessary to obtain a high post. But they, nevertheless, receive these positions by law ...
Thus, the government of South Africa discriminates against the white population in the following sequence: when recruiting for any position in the public sector, the advantage will be first a black man, then a black woman (both as former oppressed by race), then a white woman (as a former oppressed by sex attribute), and only then they consider the candidacy of the white man.
Because of this absurd system, most whites in the country work more for themselves than for the state — most often young people inherit a family business or create their own. But to open an average business you need to hire a certain number of blacks, and this is fraught with. Usually they are hired on the basis of feedback from people who have already worked for the candidate. This option is the safest.
It's no wonder that many white people get education and leave the country. Over the last 20 years, about 1 million white people left South Africa. Those who can not afford higher education and immigration remain at home and take the situation for granted.
Chronicles of Nightmare
In addition to discrimination in employment, white people in South Africa are subjected to physical violence. It is difficult to say whether the growth of violence is growing only because of the race, or whether the reasons for this are of a different nature. There are two opposite opinions that the Afrikaners themselves adhere to.
The first is that racially motivated crime is rampant in South Africa today. The adherents of this position believe, and it is not unreasonable, that black Africans often attack without any craving for material gain, and do so, rather, to avenge the colonial past. There is a reasonable grain in it, and here's why. According to statistics, hacking houses and killing their owners are not always accompanied by theft of things and money. But, with rare exceptions, the killing of whites is accompanied by cruel torture. Why torture a person so that later, after killing him, steal valuable things from the house? Is not it easier to choose the time, and in the absence of the owners rob the house? Or do they immediately shoot them and carry away everything they need?
There is a special project devoted to the statistics of murders, rapes and torture of all whites over the past few years. Data is collected scrupulously from all provinces of the country. News are updated daily. This is personally supervised by the author of the project (www.sunettebridges.co.za). And this is what we have today: if a house has broken into a gang, its inhabitants have almost no chance to survive. This applies to both women and men. Moreover, the fate of those and others is not enviable. Women and girls 95% will be subjected to rape, including group. If they survive, then the same 95% guarantee them HIV or AIDS, which almost completely infects black Africans.
The age of a woman for a black person does not matter, female individuals are subjected to violence from 8 months and up to 90 years and older. The description of torture is not the most pleasant thing, therefore I will only say that different "tools" come into play - from wooden sticks to hot water or hot iron. According to the victims, women are often raped in front of husbands, sons and brothers, and then they are killed on their own eyes. The last kill a man - so he could see the death of the family ...
That is why to date, most white people believe that a genocide is flourishing in the country. According to the international organization Genocide Watch (www.genocidewatch.org), headed by Dr. Gregory Stanton, the level of genocide in South Africa according to the corresponding scale stands at the levels of 6 and 8. The sixth level is identified as the preparatory stage of genocide, and the seventh is the stage of extermination. The eighth stage does not require comment. By the way, Mr. Stanton was once a member of the movement aimed at combating apartheid.
A large proportion of white killings are accounted for by farmers - people who make the country have first-class dairy products, meat, fresh fruits and other food. Since 1994 in South Africa, at the hands of blacks, about 4.000 white farmers have been killed. This figure does not include those who managed to survive ...
There is another position, according to which it is pointless to talk about genocide, because everything is the same in the black population: the same level of violence, the same torture. Just blacks in the country 44 million against less than 4 million white. And a similar way of life for the first - the pattern. Moreover, who will consider the blacks killed, and even keep statistics? This is not necessary, first of all, by the black Africans themselves. Human life is not a value for them, death for them is in the order of things, even if it is violent ...
From the outside, it may seem that living under such conditions is simply unbearable, but the descendants of brave Boers have been following rules for more than twenty years, which somehow help to protect their lives. Any foreigner who first came to South Africa, these rules will be announced. But you need to have common sense and understand that no rules are a guarantee that you can sleep peacefully at night. The recommendations are as follows.
Do not carry cash with you, do not lay out in plain sight (including at home) electronic equipment. As for the protection of life and health, it is better for women not to wear shiny jewelry, otherwise you can be left without ears, do not sit in a car with the door open, try not to lower the windows of car windows on the highway, the most important thing is NEVER to stop on the road in response to a signal to give a lift. They also advise you not to stop at the red light in big cities, if there are too many dangling blacks around - they can break the windows of the car, push all the passengers out of it and steal a car. Well, if it goes without victims. There was a case when a pregnant woman was asked to get out of the car, and when she got out, they shot her in the stomach.
White's houses all have bars on the windows. Moreover, there is also a forged iron door-mesh, which is placed outside the usual wooden door. To my naive question: would it not be better to put a solid metal door, there was no answer - indeed, it makes no sense to put an expensive door if you can get into the house by simply breaking the windows, demolishing the grilles on them. Those who can afford, set the alarm in the house. The pleasure is expensive, the installation itself costs about 20.000 rand, that is, about 80.000 rubles.
On the outskirts of Johannesburg and Pretoria, the houses of white residents are surrounded by high electric fences. Wealthy citizens are trying to acquire housing in special complexes that are protected. It’s really safer to live in them, but few can afford such luxury.
All white South Africans know that they should not come close to townships - black settlements, mostly around big cities. As an example I want to give one of the most beautiful cities in the world, Cape Town. The city is located at the foot of Table Mountain on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean. The beauty of nature and the cozy Cape-Dutch architecture side by side with dirty gray townships, where black-skinned criminals are born and grow up. The buildings, which are difficult to call houses, are built from boxes, rusty metal sheets, half-rotten boards and other waste building materials. Roofs are often films that look like torn black garbage bags, pinned by stones, so that in case of windy weather they are not demolished. There are no sewage systems in the townships, respectively, total insanitary conditions everywhere. Thousands of blacks live this way.
Whites in Cape Town and the surrounding area live quite differently. Private houses with a garden and swimming pool, or wine-making and other farms - this is the favorite dwelling of the Dutch descendants of the Western Cape province. But this is the “whitest” province in South Africa, where people can really afford it, being engaged in winemaking, floriculture and agriculture. Have earned. Built Enjoy ... as long as the blacks do not touch. And often they really want to get their hands on what the whites have gained through honest labor.
Alas, more or less well-to-do life can not afford much more than white. A lot of white South Africans live at the level of blacks, and even worse. The inability to find work ends in the fact that people actually find themselves on the street and live in buildings like townhouses. There is a charitable project, which through Facebook attracts help from the white people who are in distress. The project is called Vriende van Nehemia, which in Afrikaans means "Friends from Nehemia." The goal of the project is to find not just humanitarian aid in the form of food and clothing, but also to teach these people to fight for life again, because many of them, having lost hope, simply stop doing something. Direct humanitarian assistance is necessary, but often it turns people into bezambitsioznyh beings who are accustomed to constantly coming help and believe that they can not cope with their own problem.
Volunteers teach needy whites to various crafts that allow them to earn at least some money. But for a more successful development, the project itself also lacks funding. The country's ruling party, the ANC (African National Congress), refuses to help poor Afrikaners, while many of their black fellow citizens receive luxury cars from the government almost free of charge. It is necessary to carefully look at the roads of South Africa to the drivers of brand new cars - 90% of them are black South Africans ...
I must say that the Afrikaners are friendly and sympathetic people. Of those I know personally, many helped neighbors who were at some point without means of subsistence - they gave clothes, bought food for their money. Free of charge.
So why are the Afrikaners in this position? There is a version that the events taking place in the country are a response to apartheid. Among the blacks, primarily from the youth league of the African National Congress party, the song “Kill the Boer” (“Kill the Boer”) is very common. It is believed that Nelson Mandela was the first to sing it. There is a video on youtube where you can see Mandela and his fellow Communists singing the song in chorus (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fcOXqFQw2hc).
A logical question arises: how can a person who wants democracy, sing songs of a racist nature? The answer is one: Mandela wanted a BLACK DEMOCRACY, not a universal one, and therefore was for apartheid under the rule of blacks. Authorities claim that the Boers have taken the land from the people and now pay for it with life. According to ANC party members, the land of South Africa has always belonged to their ancestors, and now they want to get it back as legitimate heirs. And since now it owns white farmers, the only way to avenge such an injustice is to kill them.
But, firstly, the ancestors of modern blacks, as already mentioned earlier, were the same "strangers" in South Africa, as well as white people. Secondly, why should they land with which they did not do anything before the arrival of whites, and do not do until now, even if they have them? The answer is: why not! I just want power. Absolute. Revenge for apartheid is just a cover, although many still believe that under apartheid their ancestors lived badly, although this is not so. But the realities of apartheid are the topic of a separate article.
The South African government, represented by the leading party of the ANC and the recently re-elected president, Jacob Zuma, denied the white genocide, arguing that attacks on farmers are a common crime. But it is suggestive that the authorities have ceased to keep statistics on such crimes. This suggests that the real number of killed and injured whites is much higher than the officially named figures.
The founder of the organization Genocide Watch, Dr. Stanton, believes that the killing of farmers is not at all accidental, at least because of the incredibly cruel torture that blacks apply to them. Such torture to rob a house is an exception to the rule. But in South Africa, such "exceptions" occur almost every day. And this is, one can say, a system. Incidentally, the UN defines genocide as "The deliberate, systematic destruction of a whole or part of an ethnic, racial, religious or national group".
“We don’t know yet who is planning these murders, but we are asking for an international investigation to find out who is behind this,” - says Mr. Stanton. Studying the issue of genocide in the world for several decades, Gregory Stanton concluded that what is happening now in South Africa already had a place to be in other countries. The same was in Burundi and Rwanda. Similar happened recently in Zimbabwe. By the way, not only whites suffered from the regime in Zimbabwe, but the blacks themselves were taken away from their farms. The latter had to seek refuge and work in neighboring countries, including in South Africa. I personally know two people from Zimbabwe who quite successfully found work in South Africa in a town called Mtunzini. Both work in the local Bush Pub (Bush Pub) Work as everyone is grateful for the fact that they can at least somehow help their families left in their homeland.
As for South Africa, Genocide Watch is sure that all violent crimes are clearly planned, and that behind this is some kind of extremist group. In this statement there is logic. If you go to the outback of South Africa, to places that are very far from the settlements of white people, then people live their own life - truly African. They do not have cars, no telephones, no TV. At the sight of a white man they look at one side with anxiety in their eyes, with interest on the other - it's not often that white people come here. One of the people close to me told me how he used to go to a place like this for geodetic calculations, in order to get electricity to the houses. When the local learned about this (through an interpreter), their joy was no limit. Women began singing laudatory songs in their own language, offering food as a token of gratitude. These people said that the appearance of a white man in their land is a good sign, promising good changes in life.
The Panther Jump
Despite everything that is happening, this case somewhat changes the perception of black people in Africa and their attitude towards whites. And you can be sure that there are many such cases. Then it turns out that brutal attacks on whites and hatred against them is the lot of a certain group of people. And if there are performers, it means there are customers.
Many Afrikaners believe that the Black Panther Party is behind the mass extermination of whites in South Africa. On the FBI website, it appears as "An extremist organization of black people, based in Auckland (California) in 1966." But its activity was directed against imperialism and the struggle for the civil rights of black Americans. And no violent methods of struggle from their side was observed.
Contradiction? No, there is just another organization with a similar name - the New Black Panther Party, which originated in 1989, in Dallas (Texas). These two names are often confused, taken for the same organization, although the New Black Panther party is not the direct successor to the 60 Panthers. This is confirmed by the founder of the sixties Dr. Huey P. Newton. In an open letter to the New Black Panther Party does not exist, he writes that the New Panthers have no right to claim such a name, since it is illegal. Moreover, their goals are completely opposite to those of the original Party.
The fundamental principle of the Black Panther Party was, in the words of Che Guevara, the assertion "A real revolutionary is driven by a huge sense of love," and, in addition, her activity was based on a love for blacks, and not hatred for white people. " And the New Panthers are self-styled leaders who use violence against whites precisely because they hate them ...
The idea of creating New Panthers belonged to Michael McGee - an alderman from Milwaukee who in 1987 had threatened to disrupt all the events organized by white Americans, until the number of jobs for blacks was increased. It was then that he announced his intention to create a New Black Panther. If you give a brief description of its ideology, then basically it comes down to the nationalism of black US citizens, socialism, pan-Africanism, the superiority of the Negroid race over the rest, and anti-imperialism. The emblem of the organization depicts a black panther against the background of the African continent. The inscription reads: “The New Black Panther Party - Freedom or Death. ” At present, the head of the Party is Nasim Nsinga.
The New American reports that New Panthers have been to the African continent more than once. In particular, they are proud of their “historic” trip to Zimbabwe and South Africa. In the conference, broadcast online, Party members talked about their plan to completely exterminate South Africans of European descent. The participants of the conference claimed that they would “raise a black army”, organize military training, work closely with those who had already killed whites and, finally, would demand even more racial murders ...
Not yet evening?
Today, human rights defenders are trying to draw the attention of countries in Europe, America, and Australia and New Zealand to the problem of racially motivated crime in South Africa. One way to help white people is to take them abroad and recognize them as refugee status. But the problem is that the massive immigration of 4 million South Africans is impossible! For example, in the United States there is a quota for Africans. Unfortunately, despite the fact that the Afrikaner blood flows European, they fall just under this quota. Moreover, analysts believe that permission to immigrate to whites can undermine the status of the late Nelson Mandela, which will dispel the myth about him and the ANC as "fighters for freedom and justice".
In 2010, a protest march against the white genocide in South Africa took place in Sweden. Radio The Right Perspective reported: marchers believe that "You can no longer sit and do nothing, because what is happening now in South Africa, can happen in the future with us." In 2012, a protest was organized in Los Angeles and in 15 in the US states. Leaflets with information about the genocide in South Africa were distributed to all passersby. The protest organizers were pleasantly surprised by the responsiveness of the people and their desire to support the Afrikaners.
In South Africa itself, the Afrikaners implemented a project called Red October (www.redoctober.co.za). The project is designed to raise the awareness of citizens, as well as the world community about the high level of racial crimes against national minorities of the country. 21 March 2014, the participants of the action released dozens of red balloons into the sky to commemorate the unity of minorities in the struggle against racial discrimination and genocide ...
... The problem of mass killings of whites in South Africa has been silenced for a long time, and members of the white minority could not attract the attention of other countries to it. I want to believe that the situation has begun to change for the better, and that the descendants of the Boers will finally hear the world. And let the status of the titled "freedom fighter" Nelson Mandela suffer, but the Afrikaners — this uniquely ethnically and culturally people — will be preserved in order to pass on rich cultural traditions to their future generations.
