There can be no doubt that white South Africans, especially Afrikaners, in South Africa are subject to genocide. This genocide can be regarded as a Silent Genocide since it is denied by all major local and international role players e.g:
- the South African regime;
- South African media;
- South African business sector;
- International media;
- Foreign governments;
- United Nations and
- International human rights organisations e.g. Genocide Watch and Amnesty International.
All of the above deny white South Africans their victimhood for a combination of the following reasons:
- An unwillingness by international role players, e.g. foreign governments, and local role players, e.g. big business, to alienate the South African regime;
- An immoral attitude by internationals that white South Africans deserve to ‘pay for their sins’;
- The misperception that white South Africans are exaggerating the situation as part ‘ of a racist ploy to rally support against a black government’;
- The misperception that ‘blacks cannot be racists’;
- An attempt by foreign governments not to alienate their own black minorities and/or African countries in general, by assuming the survival cause of white South Africans/Afrikaners and
- The fact that the South African genocide is a slow genocide and not a single event of mass murder, but rather a protracted serious of smaller events renders it deniable. Denialists therefore find it plausible to interpret the Silent Genocide as a socio-economic crime problem, rather than a politically motivated orchestration of hate crime. That it is indeed politically motivated hate crime has been demonstrated clearly elsewhere on this site.
