'White farmers are NOT attacked because they are white'

White farmers are not the most vulnerable group in South Africa.

That from a caller to the Eusebius McKaiser Show on Thursday morning.

Tracey, who herself is a white farmer and a victim of a farm attack, called the show to dispel what she says are some of the myths around farm attacks.

Very few farmers are attacked because they are white. Farmers are not at risk to the extent that white genocide proponents would have us believe.

Tracy, caller to the Eusebius McKaiser Show

I don't think farmers are attacked because they are white. They are attacked because of the remoteness of where they live, they are more at risk. They are attacked because they have cash and guns.

Sometimes it's an inside job by poorly treated staff, or fired staff.
