An Ottawa man has been granted refugee status after an immigration board panel ruled he would be likely be persecuted if he returned back to his native South Africa — because he is white.

A Canadian immigration and refugee board panel ruled Thursday that Brandon Huntley, 31, could stay in Canada because he presented “clear and convincing proof of the state’s inability or unwillingness to protect him.”

“I find that the claimant would stand out like a ‘sore thumb’ due to his colour in any part of the country,” tribunal panel chair William Davis said in his decision to grant Huntley refugee status.

It’s likely the first time a white South African has been granted refugee status in Canada claiming persecution from black South Africans, said Russell Kaplan, Huntley’s immigration lawyer.

“There’s a hatred of what we did to them and it’s all about the colour of your skin,” Huntley said of the violence wrought by black attackers on many white South Africans.

Meanwhile members of the tribunal panel who ruled that "the claimant would stand out like a 'sore thumb' due to his colour in any part of the country,” reacted with shock on hearing that there were in fact a further five million white South Africans still suffering daily persecution.

"We thought that maybe there were another hundred white people left," said tribunal spokesperson Alba Snow. "We were ready to send a helicopter to airlift them to safety," she added.

Jokes aside. This thing could lead to more people asking questions about what is realy going on in South-Africa. And not what the comercials that advertise South-Africa as an ideal location to spend your vacation tell them.

JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - Canada's decision to grant refugee status to a South African who said he was persecuted because he is white drew accusations of racism from the country's ruling ANC on Tuesday.

Race is a highly sensitive issue in South Africa, still scarred by decades of apartheid, which ended in 1994.

Whites still dominate Africa's biggest economy. But some say they face reverse discrimination, and are deprived of jobs by a black economic empowerment program.

A Canadian immigration board ruled that South African Brandon Huntley could stay in Canada.

Canada's Ottawa Sun newspaper quoted the panel's chairman, William Davis, as saying Huntley would stand out like a "sore thumb" due to his colour in any part of South Africa.

"The African National Congress (ANC) views the granting by Canada of a refugee status to South African citizen Brandon Huntley on the grounds that Africans would 'persecute' him, as racist," the party said in a statement.

"We find the claim by Huntley to have been attacked seven times by Africans due his skin colour without any police intervention sensational and alarming. Canada's reasoning for granting Huntley a refugee status can only serve to perpetuate racism."

A spokesman for the Immigration and Refugee Board (IRB) of Canada said he could not comment on individual cases.

This is racist. Millions of non whites are granted a refugee status all the time. If it happens to a white person it is such a shock that it is world news.

If I lived in South Africa I would run for my life.

Well, finally an official institution acknowledges racism against whites. It´s a step in the right direction and a good signal and message to the world. :) In fact, it´s obvious that there´s more racism against whites than racism from whites against others. But the political correct elite don´t want to see it.

I wonder what the FIFA Soccer World Cup in South Africa will bring next year? :| Many naive white, brainwashed tourists will come to South Africa and I worry about their safety. Kapstadt and Johannesburg are two of the most dangerous cities on the planet, especially for whites. Disgruntled negroes and gangsters nearly everywhere, murder and rape are omnipresent. And with Jacob Zuma a black corrupt president who think´s that showering is enough to wash off AIDS...

This thing could lead to more people asking questions about what is really going on in South-Africa.

Indeed it could.

Since the Canadian immigration board were unaware of the number of whites in SA, it follows that they couldn't be aware of the fact that the Western world, dominated by multicultural ideals, is still in the process of trying to force SA whites down into a multiracial paradigm, and that it is generally frowned upon to suggest whites in the "rainbow nation" are anything less than happy.

They consequently made their decision based on the argument Huntley presented alone, containing within itself all that needs to be said to qualify for refugee-status, without the main stream media or PC liberati to lend bias to the outcome. To go back on their judgment now would be to admit that they're influenced by political correctness (or purely pressure from anti-White racism) to grant or retract refugee status. To admit they made a mistake in their ruling ought to have the same message, and so too if other white South African's looking for refugee status are turned down in the future.

I didn t know it was that bad in South Africa. Far relatives who lived there (same last name, a unique germanic one, everyone with that name is direct family of mine..) and they migrated to The Netherlands as soon as the ANC came to power.
They thought it would be going downhill soon in South Africa and they would be stuck between hordes of bosjesmannen ans zulu's, without any support from Holland, Germany, England or France (countries of origin for most Boers).

It s just like in Zimbabwe. The white farmers were violently expelled and the land was given to loads of blacks who don t know the first thing about farming. Their whole economy is in shambles now. No foreign currency, no food, no growing economy and increasing poverty.

Is South Africa heading in that direction?

I do hope that these claims of racism, do not stop others from using the same route out. It would be bad to think that the mantra of only whites being able to be racist, had sunk in so far.

It is also interesting that this has made international news, when the outcome of one single refugee claim should not even make the back page of the local rag.

Dear Sister,


I hate to agree with you (nothing personal).
I know loads of Boers are from German and Dutch descent.
South Africa is heading on its way down (crashing) after the ANC came to power. The only way to maintain a viable economic and prosporous state in Africa is by not letting blacks run the country. All of africa proves it they can t take care of themselves. I am Dutch and Holland alone has donated bilions of euro s for Africa(madness, and our goverment keeps on giving money, let alone the Dutch people)...with no result. Look at what happened in Zimbabwe and the reforms there by the all black government...That was the grain basket in Africa with the white farmers. Zimbabwe has since than lost its position as a food basket for Africa. This, in my humble opinion, proves that black Africans can t support a healthy state on their own. There is no black African nation which is prosporous, at least none I can come up with.

Black power......or Black incompetence.

They are a lost people, its a lost continent. Except for our fellow Germanic German and Dutch brothers in South Africa, the Germans in Angola and the Brits and Dutch in Zimbabwe. They need to be independant so they can be properous again without anyone holding them back.

White South African gets refugee status (http://www.abc.net.au/worldtoday/content/2009/s2674202.htm)

Carly Laird reported this story on Wednesday, September 2, 2009 12:38:00


ELEANOR HALL: A Canadian tribunal's decision to grant a white South African man refugee status has outraged the ruling party in South Africa. Thirty-one-year-old Brandon Huntley claimed that he couldn't return to South Africa because he was targeted for muggings and robberies because of his race.

The Canadian Refugee Board agreed that there was persecution of whites by blacks in South Africa. But a spokesman from the African National Congress says that decision itself is racist.

Carly Laird has our report.

CARLY LAIRD: Relations between South Africa and Canada could turn sour over the coming days following the Canadian immigration board's ruling that a white South African man would be granted refugee status.

South Africa's governing party, the African National Congress, is already clearly upset by the issue. Spokesman, Ishmael Mnisi.

ISHMAEL MNISI: The African National Congress views the granting by Canada of a refugee status to South African citizen Brandon Huntley on the grounds that Africans would persecute him, as racist.

CARLY LAIRD: The white South African man, Brandon Huntley, first went to Canada on a work permit in 2006. But he then stayed on illegally, and claimed refugee status.

He told the immigration board he was mugged and stabbed in seven attempted robberies in South Africa and that he was called a "white dog" and a "settler" during the attacks. But he also said that he didn't report the robberies to police because he didn't trust them.

But Ishmael Minisi from the ANC says South Africa is a constitutional democracy which is fully able to fight crime.

ISHMAEL MNISI: We find the claim by Huntley to have been attacked seven times by Africans due to his skin colour - without any police intervention - sensational and alarming. Canada's reasoning for granting Huntley a refugee status can only serve to perpetuate racism.

CARLY LAIRD: Canada's Globe and Mail newspaper quoted the Refugee Board member who made the ruling, William Davis, as saying there was convincing proof of the South African Government's inability or unwillingness to protect him.

One South African resident agrees with the ruling.

SOUTH AFRICAN RESIDENT: I agree with him on that part because South Africa is mostly focusing on black people too much these days. Like white people aren't given enough emphasis. Basically, they've just paid for their sins for just too long.

CARLY LAIRD: But other locals agree with the Government that the ruling is racist.

SOUTH AFRICAN RESIDENT 2: Actually I think this guy is sick 'cause if you check, we're living in South Africa but none of these issues are happening to us, but even though if they are happening to you, how can you just run away from your country. So, I think he should come back and fix these matters.

CARLY LAIRD: Geoffrey Hawker is the president of the African Studies Association and the head of politics at Macquarie University. He says he was surprised at the ruling.

GEOFFREY HAWKER: Most refugees tend to be those who are markedly in trouble, under privileged, on the run. I don't think we've had the case of a white South African coming into this situation before.

CARLY LAIRD: And he says he's sceptical that the man was attacked on the basis of his skin colour.

GEOFFREY HAWKER: Most violence is actually black on black, that's the overwhelming reality. I'm not saying this case couldn't happen, but it's not typical of what's happening in the country as a whole.

CARLY LAIRD: But isn't it true that white people in South Africa are targeted for violent crimes because of economic differences?

GEOFFREY HAWKER: Well of course there are many rich whites, that's absolutely true, and of course they are the focus of robbery and other crimes, that's really not because they're white, that's because they're rich.

And there are plenty of rich blacks now also in South Africa and they get targeted in full measure - the robber is after the money, not really after the person because of the colour of their skin. Crime reflects the socio-economic condition of the country, rather than its ethnic composition.

Unemployment is so high, and it tends to be concentrated in the black community, and that's where much of the crime is coming from.

CARLY LAIRD: Can you understand why the ANC would be so upset by this?

GEOFFREY HAWKER: Well one can, because, well South Africa's going to get the reputation of the country where the blacks are deliberately setting out to punish the whites for the past injustices that were undoubtedly perpetrated.

And if it were believed, it there were lots of cases like this, then they'd think that the whole reconciliation effort has fallen over and has become a sham and that would actually be a tragic thing for South Africa.

ELEANOR HALL: Africa analyst Geoffrey Hawker from Macquarie University ending that report by Carly Laird.

What do you do while being black and losing an argument to a rational white person.
Bingo!

If Germans have to answer for Hitler, then Jews need to answer for Karl Marx. This is my solution to the Antisemitism card.

Also seeding some of the control of the media monopoly would be a good faith gesture.

It would suck if Canada bent over backwards to appease South Africa and threw him back to the wolves. Just imagine how much more persecution he would face for trying to leave their ghetto.
