Sunette Bridges, Steve Hofmeyer and the other vierkleur waving wuckfits do not speak for me. It is my opinion that these people suffer from hubris and utter stupidity. Making crime about race when statistics show the exact opposite is tantamount to saying that South Africans that are not white are unimportant.
Having a white skin is an accident of birth, It does not make you superior. Speaking Afrikaans is an accident of birth, It does not make you more important. I am both White and speak Afrikaans, this makes me one of over a million people in this country, it does not make me special, allthough "Special" is a term that I would apply to Stevette and their cohorts.
From http://mg.co.za/article/2013-10-10-are-sa-whites-really-being-killed-like-flies, the statistics definitely prove that crime is a universal problem, it affects the lives of every South African. White farmers are targeted for many reasons, The major one is that they are easy targets. Black farmers, colored farmers and Indian farmers also get murdered viciously and brutally, Why are they not being labeled as "genocide victims"
I lived in one of the biggest houses in Hibberdene for a while, It was targeted on many occasions by burglars. The fact is that the size of the house and the nice cars parked on the driveway told the criminals I had stuff worth stealing. Farmers are perceived to be wealthy, They live far from the nearest Police presence. If I were a criminal that would seem like easier pickings than A house in town protected by a security company and the Police within easy reach.
During the Bushwar farmers were targeted because they were perceived to be soft targets. Criminals are not known for their bravado, These creatures skulk about at night, choosing empty houses, always looking for the easy score. Even in the towns the muggers pick on young boys and girls and old ladies. I walk through the areas considered dangerous with impunity. I know that the muggers will pick on the soft target, not a fully grown man that walks with purpose and looks capable of defending himself.
Stevette and cohorts feed the flames of racism, giving politicians ammunition to say "look at those whites, they are all racists" Well Mr Malema, Mr President and all the others that will be using these morons to say all whites are like this, please note They most definitely do not speak for me.
