On Wednesday, I posted a video on X which I took on the border near Lukeville, Arizona during my 7 weeks camped out there covering the crisis.
In the video is a sight we don’t usually see on the border. A white man with a young boy who I assume is his son.
I believe it was the only white person (persons) that I saw enter the country illegally.
In my post I stated:
“I think this was the only white illegal alien I saw on the border in Lukeville, Arizona. Border Patrol agents told me he was from South Africa. Apparently that’s his son with him. Must be bad in South Africa if white people are coming here illegally.”

The vast majority of illegal aliens I saw in Lukeville during my 7 weeks documenting the crisis were from Africa. Specifically the countries of Senegal and Guinea.
After I posted the video of the South African man and his son, a lot of people commented that the situation in that country is dire for whites.
These are some of the responses:
“OMG do you not realize they are ethnically cleasning whites in South Africa? These are the ones we should welcome!”

The person as did another steered me towards a documentary on YouTube:
“If you haven’t seen this you need to. Farmlands 2018”

Over a decade ago, I was in close communication with several journalists and activists who lived in South Africa, but over time I lost touch.
“For clarification, I have/(Had) friends in South Africa who are journalists and activists, but because of Twitter suspensions over the years, we lost touch. I just checked my emails from 12 years ago, and it was Adriana Stuijt and MornRSA (on Twitter) who I knew. Adriana Stuijt I believe ran http://censorbugbear-reports.blogspot.com and http://farmitracker.com. I don’t know if either of them are alive today.”

One person who goes by the name k9_reaper on X asked if I could have the man contact him.
Dude, can you get me in touch with them?
— k9_reaper (@k9_reaper) December 21, 2023
k9_reaper’s X profile reads, “Just a man – trying to stop the slow collapse of South Africa through community safety | Writing a book | #survive | it’s all a psyop.”
If anyone knows who the young man is, please get in touch with me via Twitter or Facebook so I can pass the information on. Any Border Patrol agents who contact me will remain anonymous, as usual.
In July of this year, Fox News posted a story on the situation in South Africa.
“South African political leader Julius Malema led racially violent chants at a massive rally on Saturday,” the Fox article begins.
Malema, who is the leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters party, sang the genocidal anti-apartheid struggle song “Kill the Boer, the farmer,” referring to the White descendants of Dutch settlers or “Boers” in South Africa.
The Economic Freedom Fighters has emerged as one of the preeminent powers in South African politics after the end of the Apartheid regime. Malema was originally a youth leader in the African National Congress (ANC) which was famous for being led by South Africa’s first Black leader, Nelson Mandela.

Malema faced backlash for his call for violence against White South Africans. John Steenhuisen, the leader of South Africa’s biggest opposition party, the Democratic Alliance (DA) condemned Malema on Monday, warning, “This is a man who is determined to ignite… civil war.” He later noted that Malema is a “bloodthirsty tyrant” calling for “mass murder.” He also claimed that the DA will file a complaint against Malema with the UN Human Rights Council.
South African-born billionaire Elon Musk weighed in on the video saying Malema is “pushing for genocide.” He asked why South African President Cyril Ramaphosa hasn’t addressed Malema’s rhetoric.
They are openly pushing for genocide of white people in South Africa. @CyrilRamaphosa, why do you say nothing?

A quick search on the internet shows that liberal news organizations cover South Africa much differently, calling the alleged violence against whites fake news.
The New York Times has an article from this year which states:
“In recent years, people on the right in South Africa and the United States, including former President Donald J. Trump, have seized on attacks on white farmers to make the false claim that there have been mass killings.”
Mr. Malema leads the Economic Freedom Fighters, a party that advocates taking white-owned land to give to Black South Africans. That has made his embrace of the chant all the more disturbing to some whites.
Despite the words, the song should not be taken as a literal call to violence, according to Mr. Malema and veterans and historians of the anti-apartheid struggle. It has been around for decades, one of many battle cries of the anti-apartheid movement that remain a defining feature of the country’s political culture.
That’s the New York Times, not me.
Then there’s the left Washington Post which published an article in August about Elon Musk weighing in on South Africa.
The WaPo article reads in part:
“Former Fox News host Tucker Carlson devoted multiple news segments in 2018 to a string of “farm murders” of Whites in South Africa, which were amplified by then-President Donald Trump, who directed then-Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to examine the issue. Never mind that there’s no evidence of excess violence in South Africa directed toward White farmers — indeed, the data suggests the opposite, that they are far less likely to be the targets of violent crime than the general South African population.”
But the myth of “white genocide” in South Africa has a powerful valence, nonetheless. It’s been invoked in the manifestos of white nationalist gunmen who carried out mass shootings in Christchurch, New Zealand; El Paso; and Buffalo. And its seeming resurfacing by Musk thrilled various white nationalists and neofascists using the tech CEO’s platform, as Mother Jones documented.
Whatever the truth is, I saw a white man who had crossed the border illegally. The man was with a young boy I assume is his son. It would be interesting to get his story.
