An interesting article

No-one claims that there were more than 100 farm murders in 2017, a year in which the South African police recorded more than 19,000 murders in the country as a whole. Most of those victims, of course, are black.

According to Gareth Newham, head of Justice and Violence Prevention at the internationally-respected Institute for Security Studies in Pretoria, there has been a 40 per cent increase in all kinds of armed attacks since 2012 — hold-ups of armoured security vans, home and business invasions, street muggings.

"We have a real problem with violence," Newham says.

"And so for us, sitting in South Africa looking at these 19,000 murders — suddenly there's international attention on the murders of white farmers, it just seems completely disproportionate.

To classify farm attacks as genocide is utter nonsense. There's absolutely no evidence of that, it's fearmongering.

"There is evidence that attacks on white farmers in South Africa are largely driven by criminal intent, greed."

All of this was raised, and ignored, at the time.

I think we've successfully answered the question in the thread title, no?
