So, I'm watching a documentary on the current state of affairs in Cape Town, SA & they interview what they refer to as a "Coloured" man (a non-black South African).
Listen closely as this man compares life under the "white regime" (apartheid) vs. under ANC rule. pic.twitter.com/uJxnfVGLgn

For those who claim that many of the farm invasions which resulted in murders of South African Whites were actually routine robberies “gone wrong,” the available crime statistics prove otherwise:
The scourge of farm murders has become one of the biggest hot-button issues in South Africa, accelerated somewhat by the uncertainty regarding land expropriation…
We’ve taken a look at the official government statistics on farm murders, and a few things surprised us: Some for the better, some for worse. Here’s what the crime stats for 2017/2018 suggest is happening:
From March 2017 – March 2018, official SAPS data suggests 62 people have been killed on their farms. AfriForum previously claimed that 109 farm attacks took place between January – March 2018. However, the crime stats suggest that only 108 attacks have taken place over the last year.
When farm invasions get underway, the statistics say they are most likely to end in murder. The 62 killings from 108 attacks gives us a 57.4% mortality rate. A further 30.5% of incidents result in burglary, whereas 5.55% of farm crimes play host to attempted murders.
There was a total of 20 336 murders in South Africa last year – which hasn’t got any easier to digest during Tuesday – and farm murders only make up a small, but significant percentage of the numbers. For context, you’re more likely to be killed by a panga than murdered on a farm.
Given that nine murders came from seven confirmed incidents with fatalities, Limpopo is where farmers are most likely to be one of “multiple victims”. Now, the numbers aren’t that high so there isn’t much to go on, but 23% of these crimes claim at least two lives or more.
A RECORD number of white South African farmers have put their land up for sale amid fears the ruling party is considering confiscating properties bigger than 25,000 acres.
Tensions among the country’s white farming community have been rising since the election of Cyril Ramaphosa assumed office earlier this year and committed his African National Congress (ANC) to land expropriation.
And ANC chairman Gwede Mantashe sparked panic last week when he said: “You shouldn’t own more than 25,000 acres of land.
Following Australia’s offer of fast tracking visas for White South African farmers in April, Russia has now agreed to take 15,000 Boers. The decision by the Russian government to allow the immigration follows the well documented troubles in South Africa, where White farmers are being attacked or killed in an attempt by the ANC to reclaim land. In Australia, The Boers are already making a successful home for themselves in and around Perth.
