Racism still very strong against whites

Hi everyone,
I used to love South Africa, I used to say I'd never leave... my rose-tinted glasses were shattered last month!
- A Monday morning my mom was driving to work when she hit a pedestrian.
- The pedestrian seemed fine, however, the other black people started stoning my mom's car.
- She has a witness, a man who hooted at her to go - then followed her to the closest garage and told my mom to go to the police
- My mom was so upset, she then got my brother to take her to the police station to make a statement
- The superintendent at the station took the statement and told my mom not to worry, seeing as the pedestrian was fine and hadn't come forward with a charge, nothing would come of it
- My mom went to work - only to have a police van full of officers pitch at her office to arrest her!
- As she hysterically tried to call me to say they were taking her to Roodepoort Police Station, they took her phone from her and simply threw her into the van. On route to the station they asked my mom for a bribe, my mom never had cash on her - then they all started laughing at her and told her what a useless white she is.
- I raced to the police station and immediately got hold of a lawyer.... the lawyer was furious!
- There was no charge! no pedestrian! and yet my mother was thrown in a cell - with a convict!
- The convict told my mom she organised for other convicts to be let into the cell to rape and beat my mom that night
- When fingerprints were taken my mom asked for some toilet paper and was told to wipe her hands on her effing hand bag!
When I was at the police station I was treated with total disregard by the black police officers - who looked at me like something someone scraped off the bottom of their shoe!
Long story short, this entire nightmare cost four thousand rand in lawyer fees and bail to get my mom out. The lawyer knew to act quickly to ensure that my mom did not stay in overnight. The case was thrown out of court on Tuesday morning, as there was no case! My mom was put through hell and back by our joke of a police force - who should surely to God use their manpower where it's so desperately needed in our country.
My lawyer confirmed that white people are being victimised. The theory is that we have the money to waste on bribes and bail!
Please ensure that you have the number of a lawyer... the police aim to keep you in jail for at least one night - they only need one night to get you raped and beaten by other convicts - so that they got their revenge against whites.
My mom is terrorised and currently undergoing counseling...And simply wants to forget the whole thing. But I refuse to let more people be victimised by an institution that's supposed to protect us!
ALWAYS HAVE A LAWYERS NUMBER - and warn everyone you know to keep the number of a lawyer handy, as you have to act speedily to avoid staying even one night! (we've all heard scary stories about traffic officers arresting people without the necessary legal documents)
Racism is an ugly thing South Africans are trying hard to get rid of, yet racism against white people is so clearly evident.
God help us... let's pray we don't end up like Zim, as our government and law enforcement seem set on sending us in the same direction!

    Honestly guys both blacks and whites are racist. I'm black but this story touched me. I also suffer racism from my white counterparts especially the Afrikaaner men and it hurts. Lets try and stop pointing fingers and make sure that starting from your household, you dont tolerate racism and thats that. Last week my son (5 yrs) talked about being black and white and right at that moment I taught him that people are the same and the love that God has for all of us. Most of us are christians, how can we be christ like and racist at the same time? Let us be realistic by first admitting that there are a number of both blacks and whites that are racist and then deal with the problem.

    I have heard horror stories of this nation...so sad that the blacks who are in power revert to racism and violence against their fellow white citizens...my fear is that SA is tuning into another Zim...My message to all whites...get the FUCK out of that dangerous land of serpents!

    It's just so sad that people do this, the racist black people give other non-racist blacks, a bad name! A few months ago my family and I were in an accident involving a black man who was drunk. his actions caused my father to go to ICU. To make it short, the metro police didn't do a breathaliser test on him because my father was knocked out cold at that point. They made no case and the woman refused to give her name to my brother. On the other hand a lady who was lost on her way home from a prayer meeting came to our car and comforted us say "the blood of Christ is upon you," So I ask you, how can we judge blacks. Lets rather judge the police because they're screwing up South Africa

    Time to move out of there then Krysten!

    I used to always cover up and say its not as bad as they say but it is. I live in a rural town where the white population is only a few. We need to be able to speak Xhosa, or Sotho to get by. whenever you go into a shop, you can feel the hatred aimed at you. you are petrified to walk anywhere, let alone drive and today, December, 17 2011. i was standing outside a store waiting for my husband and i overheard a black man telling his 5 year old son that I am a Mlungho (white trash-scum of the earth) and that they must bulala and tsapha us (spelling is off )but meant that they must kill and beat us!!!! i do my best to try stay positive but what hope do we have, i wish i could leave this country!!! he did this knowing that i was listening and repeated it several times. I cannot confront him because I would be beaten/stoned alive.

    It's sad to see that many fellow black africans still have that hatred of past events.I want to assure you that it's only the minority,both black and white,that still have a racist mentality. I really hope such events will be a thing of the past and we can be able to build a better South Africa.I urgue you to report this incident to be looked into.Nobody deserves such a treatment!

    I do agree with you Jacgie racism is ugly in SA,i am black and i completely understnd how you might be feeling about this. We are led to believe we are safe on this country when thetruth is that we are being victimised by the same "new givernement " that prommised freedom. I think the time and blood shared during fight for freedom was just a waiste because we hate each other so much and still apply the same mentality used back then. These days you dont smile when you see strangers,yo dont give old people right of way or show respect because of the victimisation we experiance every day. its a pitty some of us are victims and nobody cares to do anything about it... Lets just hope that maybe with little education and less poverty situation will get better,because i do not understand were the hatered comes from.
