From YA romance author Alice VL, comes the shocking true story she did not want to write. However, in a society where we are often told only one side of a story (generally whatever narrative the media and/or government wants us to believe), the truth must be told no matter how difficult it is to hear or how costly it may be to tell.
“My Turn,” recounts the emotionally charged and tragic details of what is happening in present-day South Africa. It is the story of racism run rampant. Land is being taken. Whites are being targeted for brutal torture and murder. The statistics document this to be true, but little is known of this travesty in our world. The reason? The crimes are not committed by whites against blacks, but vice versa. This scenario finds no traction because it does not fit the politically correct view of what racism is known to be.
Alice VL provides alarming statistics and sobering documentation to bolster the claims that white people in South Africa, particularly white land-owners and farmers, face unremitting danger. Gripped by fear, each is left to wonder, is today “my turn” to be tortured and murdered? The author seeks to be the voice of the minority in South Africa yearning for justice under a government that seems utterly disinterested in providing it. Instead, the government turns a deaf ear to the cries of the persecuted minority while at times even lampooning their plight.
This book seeks to shed light on a subject many wish to bury along with the white minority in South Africa. It is with the sincere hope that people who value true racial harmony and reconciliation will be enlightened to the racial persecution and injustice being perpetrated towards millions. We put forth this book because we believe that all prejudice is wrong, all hatred is vile, all persecution is criminal. We dare not close our eyes and hearts to the oppression of any minority.
