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?
