Over 3000 white farm murders ?

Sorry for posting about this boring shyte again but people won't let up.

Ok, look here are the closest estimates for ALL farm murders or ALL races.

AgriSA, the South African Agricultural Union, recorded 1 541 murders and 10 151 attacks in the period from 1994 to 2008 -- an average of 0,3 murders a day.

The Transvaal Agricultural Union (TAU) recorded 1 266 murders and 2070 attacks in the period from 1991 to 2009 -- an average of 0.2 murders a day.

The Institute for Security Studies of the University of Pretoria, using statistics provided by TAU in June last year, reported 1 073 murders and 1 813 attacks in the period from 1993 to 2009 -- an average of 0,2 murders a day.
The only available figures on the SAPS website -- where the M&G was directed by a police spokesperson when we asked for statistical information about farm attacks -- pertain to a general overview of murder statistics in South Africa as a whole


Now these are not government stats so drop the conspiracy rubbish. The agricultural unions are almost entirely made up of white farmers and clearly it's in their interest to publish the most inflated stats they can get away with.

How does that sit with the 3000 white farmers murdered crud ? Even if everyone one of these was a white farmer that would mean a murder rate of 73 a year. +- 1 a week. Far less than what we're been told is the case by the senile right winged nuts. But of course given that the gross majority of people living on farms are non whites, the gross majority of murders happen to non whites.

I hate having to have this debate. It feels dirty and like I'm callously peeing on the feelings of many who have been victims to violent crime. That's really not my intention. Look 1 murder is too fucking much and I'll as soon put a bullet through the head of someone trying to carry out a farm murder as the most extreme right winger. But when I'm torpedoed with rubbish stats all day I can't be expected to take it in the nuts all the time.

In conclusion, and I mean conclusion as I don't want to write about this anymore and won't if not provoked : I'm sorry but I just don't see any evidence for a "white farmer genocide." And I really gave it a good look.
