The fallout from the H & M doodie debacle continues to unfold with stores being attacked and ransacked in South Africa, which have been forced to close by a group calling themselves “Economic Freedom Fighters”.

Ironically most of those now out of work because of this Black liberation group are themselves Black South Africans.

The situation in South Africa has unfortunately taken a more violent turn. White people in South Africa have long been the target of organized racist violence and in recent years and months attack on the white minority, particularly white farmers has dramatically increases.

Now in the aftermath of the H & M controversy Afrikaner high school in Johannesburg has been attacked a racist mob chanting “whites must die”. Multiple injuries have been reported

Recently protests were held in South Africa and by South African ex-pats in Ireland and around world to highlight epidemic of murders of white farmers in the country, often the victims, who are sometimes whole families are raped and mutilated in the most grotesque ways imaginable before being mercifully killed.

Some recent photographs captured of those involved have led to accusations that the ANC government may be involved because of the high-tech military equipment being used.
