Stop the Genocide by Johanna89 Stop the Genocide by Johanna89
This was a project at my college. I'm taking Graphic Design and we were supposed to make a billboard depicting a social issue.

Hardly anyone knows what is going on in South Africa. The media will mention little bits of information but it doesn't mean anything.

90 people die a day in South Africa from various things, murder, aids...

The white Afrikaaner (Boer) are the hated people. Families are brutally murdered. Women and children are raped, beaten, and killed while the man is tied up and is forced to watch his family die. He is also eventually killed.

Babies are rolled up in newspaper and burned alive.

So many atrocities are happening in what was once one of the greatest countries world. Yes, it is still a beautiful place, but when you look deeper the earth is stained with blood. Crime is everywhere and the government does nothing. South Africa is shrouded in darkness and the rest of the world doesn't notice.

Its funny how the world cared so much when the poor little blacks were being machine-gunned in the 70s, but when the whites are being slaughtered in this day and age everyone just says "Oh well, its their fault." and do nothing!

A powerful message, my friend!

Oh wow. I know it's been a while since you send me this but if you would still like to use this image you're more than welcome to.

Not sure how I feel about this. The Boers did the samething to the blacks for generations, so really the shoe's just on the other foot.

And that's reason to kill and do genocide?

When you keep circulating hate, you make more hate, until you or the other party is fully dead, which requires more hate. How many Afrikaaners hate Coloreds and Blacks because of the latter two drinking up their revenge?

If you want true equality, you protect EVERY ONE OF YOUR CITIZEN'S body, lands, and rights. You do not favour one group over the other and keep calling yourself a equal nation, you become the same "monster" you ousted.

Lets say Europe kills it's Gypsies, Blacks, Turks, Iranians, Arabs, and Muslims. The whole world will be shocked and condemn this "Racist, vile action". Yet Boers are being killed, for simply being Boers, no matter how young or old they are. It's been 18 years since the start of equality - and 3,000 Boers have died due to RACIAL violence.

When more people actually take up what they preach, then can there be true peace. But people who think like you, "Oh, they did bad things before, let them have a taste!" simply extend the hate that will bite them in the ass sooner of later. What happens if the Boers decide revenge? Or other whites? Would the world applaud revenge, or label it racist?

Maybe you should freshen up on your history.

Look at articles written in Scandanavia, Russia, and various other countries. They've interviewed residents in the squatter camps (black people) who prefer life under the white government.

Now they sit with a president who believes that if you take a shower after you have sex you wont get aids. He has multipe wives and has raped people on his staff. No one does anything about it. They have a radical black man shouting "Kill the Boer, Kill the Farmer" who the president himself is scared of. The whole government is corrupt.

White people on farms are being murdered for no reason other than the fact that they are white. It's hate crime.

Read the articles. Look at the pictures. See for yourself.

Hmm, black people prefer to live under the white government?

If you had a desire to live in Russia (I do not mean living in a protected village, protected by bodyguards), you would have seen very soon in the fact that these "black people" want to do to become the government and the rulers. In St. Petersburg (one of the largest cities in Russia) has about 40% of police personnel --no-Russian and non-Christians. Our Minister of Police - Tatar. This alien force and power.

What would you say if the U.S. government owned by a foreign minority, which is beyond criticism?

But what you write about Afrikaners - this is true, and I wholeheartedly support your claim.

I live in Norway and I have heard a lot about what's going on in South Africa (not through the Norwegian media of course, but I have spoken to many people from SA). It's really sad that the white people, especially the Boers, are treated so bad in their country and yet they get no attention. They suffer in silence.

you know there are other nationalities of white south africans (i am of english slash italian slash scottish descent for example :) ), my neighbor is black and was just hijacked yesterday so its affecting all the people.
every country has it's problems and no government does anything it promises anyway, sad but true. now zim is a country where the white ppl are being are being victimised. forced out of their homes etc. they all flee to south africa so we cant be that bad.

did you do this in photoshop btw?

yes I did...

And I know that everyone is affected by what happens in SA... That's beside the point. I'm guessing you live there. Well, from this side of the world we dont turn a blind eye to what happens there. We don't get used to it. It's not normal. We know how a country should be and yeah, SA might not be as bad as ZIM but it's still a shit hole.

This project was simply to create awareness for the people who don't know what's going on in SA.

In any case. The Boer, the farmer is the backbone of a country. They are the ones who farm, provide food for the nation in a way. With so many being murdered every day, attacked, harrassed, "victimized" what will happen to the place if there is no one to provide what they do! If you understand any afrikaans... "waar die dier loop groei daar niks"

yeah i live in South africa, and i dont turn a blind eye to what happens here, how could i when it is all around me. i know that we have crime, but so does everyone else in every other country, and i take offence to you saying its a shit hole, all you know is what you see on the news. we ARE ONE OF THE ONLY COUNTRYS IN THE WORLD TO GO THROUGH SUCH A CHANGE (democracy 1994 elections) WITHOUT A CIVIL WAR ETC.

I honestly think you are confusing zimbabwe with south africa. if you want a second opinion you can ask someone else who LIVES IN SOUTH AFRICA.

No I'm not confused and yes South Africa is a shit hole. I was there a couple of months ago. I was there ten years ago. What it was then is not what it is now. I was shocked at how much it had changed and for the worse. The government is fucked up and corrupt and I don't give a hell if you take offense to me saying anything.

Most stores close at 8. Why? Later than that it's dark and you'll get mugged walking to your car in the dark. Every house has bars on the windows so no one will break in and steal your things. You have fences with barbed wire or spikes, guard dogs, alarm systems... some form of protection...

That isn't a way to live. Having to look over your shoulder all the time... Hell no.

I understand that it is a way of life. YOU'RE USED TO IT BECAUSE YOU DON'T KNOW ANY BETTER or you haven't experienced anything else.

I don't care that South Africa went through "such a change without a civil war" In all honesty it is a fucking civil war. White and black people live there. They are in an "unspoken" war. You can deny it all you want but in the end it's only the truth!

Thats the problem with alot of people. As soon as you mention that there is crime in south Africa or how bad the violence they will try and put it into context to avoid the question. Politicians use that method. I study history and looking at things like this makes you relise why some people became extremist like the IRA in Ireland

what shit! i don't know where you went but it sure wasnt anywhere ive been or even heard about! and i would have you know i'm quite well travelled. i could say the same things about america being a shit hole if my opinion were based solely on hearsay, but i would not put an opinion on things i don't know about.
