A few months ago I did my stats and worked out the South African white murder rate was 8/100 000. I used the proportion or murders than happen to white people (believed then to be 2%) and the proportion of the poulation and divided it into the official murder rate. Then I came across the official stats that had been taken up until 2004 and found that in fact in 1 or 2 years it had been as high as 20/100 000. I averaged out the murder rate over the period since 1994 and came to a compromise of around 12 per 100 000 people.
I recently came across a statistic taken by South African author and Oxford Graduate Johnny Steinberg. He's a Rhodes scholarship winner and a pretty well respected guy. He did his own research without any agenda (which I obviously had). While I'm not known for my endearing sense of modesty I do on rare occassion catch a glimpse that I might be outgunned for credibility. So let's just consider the unthinkable for a moment : Was Rooster wrong?
Steinberg came to the following conclusion : 1 in 33 murders in South Africa happen to white people.
Now the official murder rate in South Africa is 38/100 000. But only on in 33 of these happens to white people. So if I'm being dishonest I can say so we divide murders by 33 and that represents white murders ! The white murder rate is 1.151 per 100 000 ! Less than the UK ! Australia ! Japan ! Everywhere !
The smarter ones are already protesting though, and rightly so.
Whites only make up 9% of the population. To put it another way around 1 in 11 people in South Africa is white. We have to multiple 1.151 by 11 times to accurately reflect the murder rate of white South Africans.
And what answer do we get ?
No my beloved f#ckwads. Rooster was not wrong. Eat Sh!t.
