The world turns a blind eye and I am unawares as to why. The world focuses on Iraq or Darfur but ignores the killings of whites. Has the media become this biased?

Since the end of aparheid, many white SA have come to the UK to escape what is going on back home. I work with several and they regard SA as a cesspool now and won't go back. Any that can claim British citizenship are and are flocking here.
Pretty soon, the SA will follow in Mugabe of Zimbabwe's footsteps and go all out on the whites.
This has been known about for quite some time and has been discussed on ATS, about 2 years ago (2005) if I remember rightly.

Myth that Rape is Cure for AIDS May Not Explain its Prevalence
South Africa is widely believed to have one of the highest incidences of rape in the world. About 50,000 rapes were reported in 2001 alone, although women's groups say this is just a small percentage of total number. They estimate that a woman is raped every 26 seconds and a child every 15 minutes. The South African police service gives a slightly lower estimate of one woman every 36 seconds.
No one knows why there are so many rapes in South Africa. Poverty is certainly part of it, but other countries are poor yet do not have the high rate of sexual assault that South Africa does. Thoko Majokweni, director of the sexual offenses and community affairs unit of South Africa's National Prosecuting Authority, says finding out why the country's rate of sexual assault is so high is half the battle.
"We're doing research into the root causes because we can't just be treating the symptoms all the time," she says from the Pretoria office where she oversees the prosecution of sexual offenses and family related matters. "You can't prevent what you don't know."
One popular explanation for South Africa's high sexual assault statistics, and particularly the high incidence of rape of children, is the belief that sex with a virgin cures AIDS.
Studies on the subject have yielded mixed results. Some have found that only a very small number of South Africans actually believe that myth, while others, conducted in different parts of the country by different researchers, have found that the view is widely held.
South African President Thabo Mbeki has called the farm murders of whites "the final stage of the revolution."
Said Dutch journalist Adriana Stuijt, a former anti-apartheid activist based in Holland, "If South Africa's vicious farm murders had occurred in Zimbabwe, these would have been world news. But these 'only' occurred in South Africa, and so the rest of the world remains oddly silent. Post-apartheid South Africa is apparently immune from the usual investigative journalism being conducted in the rest of the Western world."
"Why has the South African farmer become the world's most endangered species?" Stuijt asked. "Why are South Africa's few remaining commercial farmers now most at risk of being murdered in the whole world? They are being murdered at 264 per 100,000 population group. It is the highest in the world! A Nedbank probe recently described these farm attacks as 'deliberately targeting specific homesteads to kill the Afrikaner victims.'"
Stuijt noted that with more than half of South Africa's commercial farmers now already having vacated the sector permanently since 1994, "more than 1 million hectares less maize is also being harvested this year. The entire region with its 120 million people is also plunging headlong into widespread famine. … And all these facts are not unrelated."[/exe]

well, gotta say. hope theres famine and pain all round just like zimbabwe, and when they trot out the old starving kids piccies, ill think of all the poor murdered farmers, and keep my money in my pocket - oh but i'll buy brucie a beer, as he's an ex-zimbabwe farmer forced to the Uk 'cause they killed his wife. He can have my money, food, sympathy and a bit of a helping hand. let those who cause this crap wipe up the mess they create.

I think western society needs to follow the lead of the US and step up its war production, occupation and overall colonization efforts. The British need to secure the mineral rights of South Africa and Botswanna. And if they cannot do that, obviously they cannot, someone else needs to step in, like say for instance: France.

We have, however, chosen to stay and fight for our country by being productive members of society and doing our bit to help those less fortunate than us to get on their feet and, in their turn, become productive members of our society.
Crime is a problem but at least our government isn't sending our sons and daughters to fight a war that has nothing to do with us!
Just give us another ten years and you'll see how we'll thrive. We're an independent nation and are determined to turn South Africa into the best place in the world to live and then lets see the "chicken runners" fighting to get back into the country!
