    The Brandon Huntley Story and the Re-Racialisation of South Africa‎

    South Africa continues to be one of the most polarised nations on earth with race still being one of the most contentious issues. Brandon Huntley’s story merely points this out once again. The ruling party and indeed many people in the country still use apartheid-era categorisations. Instead of fighting for a non-racial South Africa far too many people seek to reaffirm old splits and old categories. I hate using and writing the categories out: white, black, coloured, Indian and so on as if they are meaningful beyond crude politics and social norms. Yet I am forced to do so by the very discourse of the country; so I do so begrudgingly.

    I find it indicative of the stupidity of some of the commentators on the issue that accuse Canada of racism in their refugee policies. Canada has a wonderful refugee programme that accepts people from all over the world and of all hues. I have known Vietnamese, Colombian, Chilean, Somali, American (draft dodgers from Vietnam), Rwandan, Palestinian, Russians and know of numerous other nationals living as refugees in Canada. All were accepted on a case-by-case basis and never on the basis of their race. Some of these may have been false claims, some of these drains on the social system, but most settle in and work and live as Canadians. We are an immigrant nation and I know few people without recent historic memory of another place and identity.

    Huntley’s claim that he was attacked seven times without police intervention and that race was a factor is not really surprising. I know a number of people who were assaulted at Umbilo police station for complaining to the police about the prostitution in the Glenwood area. They were told to go back to Europe and even beaten. I personally witnessed one such assault on a small white woman. I know that many people in Glenwood of Durban no longer bother to report crimes unless they are claiming insurance as the police do not investigate or appear to even care.

    And of course crime is not always race based. The police do not seem to care about anybody regardless of race and black South Africans are subject to all sorts of violent crime and the same violent indifference by the police. What changes the factors in Huntley’s story is that he felt he was targeted because he was white. This is probably true as many people keep pointing out that whites are still the largely in economically dominant positions. The perception that Huntley would be a worthwhile target is probably based on his race even as it was probably incorrect.

    Now to add to the global perception that race is all determining in the “New” South Africa think of the hateful comments being made by certain political leaders, high court judges and the fact that there are double standards in South African race politics. If a high court judge makes a racist utterance there is no appropriate response. If Malema makes wild accusations and threatens violence against whites there is no response. Couple such high profile racist remarks with the high crime and violence in South Africa is surely going to trigger race based fears among whites.

    It has been pointed out that unemployment among whites is at a low of 4,6% compared to 29,7% for black South Africans. Shocking disparity, but it does not take into account the million or so white South Africans who have left South Africa often citing better job opportunities elsewhere, lack of crime and all around better standard of living. Had these million or more stayed what would be the white unemployment rate?

    To deny that many whites feel persecuted in South Africa is a violent act. It affirms their fears that they do not belong in South Africa and are unwelcome here. Even if their perception is incorrect and criminals are merely opportunists (no doubt this is true in many regards) their fears and perception should be acknowledged and dealt with. Instead they are accused of racism, told to leave South Africa and have their worst fears confirmed.

    Another “fact” that is often cited is that black male South Africans are most likely to be a murder victim and black women are most likely to be sexually assaulted or raped. While these are not disputed statistics one should question the rate of murder among whites when you consider the number that live behind large electric fences, gated communities and have private security. Clearly all is not well in South Africa. The government’s lacklustre response to crime besetting everyone is appalling and, perhaps ironically, affects poor blacks the most.

    I should not have to mention the violence experienced by African forieners in South Africa recently. If you look at the Canadian immigration website, they, too would be probably be accepted into Canada.

    Here is the Canadian criteria straight from the Canadian Immigration website

    Convention Refugee
    Convention refugees are people who are outside their home country or the country where they normally live, and who are unwilling to return because of a well-founded fear of persecution based on:

    • race
    • religion
    • political opinion
    • nationality or
    • membership in a particular social group, such as women or people of a particular sexual orientation.

    Person in need of protection

    A person in need of protection is a person in Canada whose removal to their home country or country where they normally live would subject them personally to:

    • a danger of torture;
    • a risk to their life; or
    • a risk of cruel and unusual treatment or punishment.

    And perhaps it will come to naught as Huntley’s claim may yet be rejected. However, it would be wrong to dismiss the claims as without any merit. As long as South African are defined by race the exist the very real threat of racial injustice and discrimination against those deemed unacceptable exists, be they whites, Mozambicans or Zimbabweans. South Africa has enough problems without re-creating the apartheid past in a new fashion that once again benefits an elite minority.

    Good luck to any white person who wants to report a crime......I have been there and done that. Do not expect the flying squad to pitch up and investigate. Brandon Huntley went the way most Afrikaners did not, we are proud people, with our Germanic herritage, we do not like to beg....but if there is no other way, what can you do to ensure you are not wiped out. The fact of the matter is that the police will never find the criminals, as they are mostly involved in criminal activities themselves. The SA police force are run by criminals and murderers.....If in doubt...just look at Robert Mcbride...he should have hanged for murder, but instead he was made head of the Johannesburg Metro Police.....talk about a wolf in sheep`s clothing.

    Canadian Government Objects to Asylum Ruling

    OTTAWA - The federal government has denounced as "perverse" a refugee board ruling that granted asylum to white South African Brandon Huntley on the grounds he could face persecution in his homeland because of his skin color.

    In a written submission to the Federal Court of Canada, the government said the ruling that Mr. Huntley's claim was "justified" is unreasonable and based on a "jaundiced assessment", by the one-man board, of conditions within South Africa.

    Immigration Minister Jason Kenney is asking the Federal Court for permission to seek a judicial review of the ruling by board member William Davis.

    Mr. Davis' ruling in late August sparked outrage in South Africa where, among other things, the governing African National Congress said the reasoning behind the decision "can only serve to perpetuate racism."

    In Ottawa, Abraham Sokhaya Nkomo, South Africa's ambassador to Canada, told Canwest News Service Mr. Davis's ruling was shocking and could seriously damage relations between the two countries.

    Within days, the federal government announced it was taking the rare step of appealing a decision by the Immigration and Refugee Board.

    The federal submission took Davis to task for effectively accepting Huntley's argument that he did not seek police protection after allegedly being attacked six or seven times by black South Africans because he did not trust a police force dominated by blacks to help him.

    It said Mr. Huntley, who hails from Cape Town, failed to provide "clear and convincing" evidence of the South African government's inability to protect him.

    Mr. Davis' implicit acceptance of Mr. Huntley's argument represents a "disturbing view" that "rests largely on the board's jaundiced assessment of the country conditions," the government said.

    It took strong issue with the statement by Mr. Huntley, who is living in Ottawa, he would stick out like a "sore thumb" because of his colour if he was forced to live anywhere in South Africa.

    Dismissing the statement as "unreasonable and perverse," the government cited figures from Statistics South Africa that said whites form a sizeable minority in the country, ranging from 23.9% of the population of Pretoria, for example, to 16% in both Port Elizabeth and Johannesburg.

    The government said that while it is "indisputable" that crime is prevalent in South Africa, all South Africans are affected, regardless of race.

    I wonder all many Somalis & other Negroes have been granted refugee status in Canada because of violence in their respective homelands, caused by Negroes?

    I think Mr. Harper (the Canadian prime minister) & Mr. Kenney should be thrown out somewhere in the middle of Johannesburg (not in one of the gated communities with armed patrols) & see what it is like to be thrown to the mercy of Negroes. Better yet just ditch them in Detroit (it is so much closer) after sundown & see let them see how race based black-on-white-crime is first hand.

    This is just typical....liberal scum believing that the SA police and their criminalistic government will protect a white man from crime. I have been there, reported a crime and nothing came of it. Until now, no police officer came to investigate, and they never will. I would love to see those liberal idiots come to good old SA....here they can walk without fear after dark in our well police patrolled streets. There is no need for burglar bars, alarms, dogs the size of lions, paid for security companies, or doing what ever you can to keep your firearm licence......the same people telling the world that there is no crime are trying to disarm the white population. I would love to have the same liberals here without their protection services and we shall see how long they will last.

    Ottawa - Canada's Federal Court overturned a contentious immigration ruling that granted refugee status to a white man from South Africa who claimed persecution from blacks in his home country.

    [...]

    He claimed he was attacked seven times during attempted robberies and muggings.

    [...]

    When the refugee decision came down, the South African government expressed outrage and the case raised a furore in that country's media.

    The authorities called the decision itself "racist" and "ridiculous" and made diplomatic complaints.

    Rusell said it's possible some white South Africans could make a case for persecution, but had doubts about Huntley.

    "I have serious reservations about why this particular white South African came to Canada and, after a considerable delay, opted to claim refugee status."

    I am in doubt

    I doubt very much that so many white people are still living in SA.Remember most of them are on dual citizenships in England, Ireland and such.They are our younger generations and did not have to immigrate.It is only when you think about it that if Huntley's decision was not reversed many other SA could use the same reason for leaving the country.We also have a lot of people working on contract all over the world.Funny thing is our goverment tells us to leave if we complain, then complains if we use reasons that show them up.

    Had Mr. Huntley being black citing the exact same reasons for claiming refugee status, I bet there would have been no eyebrows raised.
    The fact is that the caffirs has it in for us whites and the cancer of politcal correctness is there strongest weapon. These bastards are using this almost just as good as the jews, their holocaust.
