I was once almost kidnapped. I was less than a year old and my brother was 2 at that time. We were in a store when my brother got injured. It distracted everyone and I crawled out. Soon my parents realized I was missing. They immediately rushed everywhere looking for me. Then my mother was going to report me missing when she met a man who was holding me. When he realized she was my mother he gave me to her. Anything could had happens that day had it not been for that kind man!

How much does BuzzFeed talk about the white genocide going on in South Africa I never hear from BuzzFeed are you connected to the b e economic freedom fighters. When white children are kidnapped they're sold for $3,500. About 30000 Rand. And yet that's too bad. But you won't talk about the white genocide either we'll BuzzFeed I got a disconnect BuzzFeed

@Khokar why does he appreciate them? If it was a true religion then he would try and help them become part of them and not just leave them following a false religion

@Khokar you don't have to do that. I don't apologize for the fact that my ancestors did mass genocide to the jews or the fact other ancestors colonized Suriname or Indonesia for example. It was a genuine question because what I hear from a lot of religions (including islam) is that they think they are the true religion to follow. Which is weird in my opinion.

Being sympathetic and lending an ear to an assailant really does help how they treat you and can inadvertently give you information to hand on to the police afterwards. You can be a saint for all I care, I'll play along if it stops me being shot 🤷‍♀️

Some of their kidnappers may have known them. I doubt they wanted to go down for murder if caught. I'm sure one of them just had sympathy when they most likely cried out that he was diabetic. If they were already praying loudly I'm sure they beg for his diabetic bag. Even if they didn't know them- that means someone took sympathy and even though they said they wouldn't kill them that's how murderers have messed up before is when they finally take sympathy.

@number1mitskifan "yall have done enough and you are a white south african alright" was a bit racist mate, he's an idiot for saying his race that like an African American mentioning they black every 2 seconds to everyone. Someone's race shouldn't be mentioned period; but dont throw a racist jab in, as then you just part of the problem.
number1mitskifan پیش 11 روز
@Gerco 1 Snyman 1 and you think mentioning this under a video of a black woman explaining the horror of her and her husband getting kidnapped was the right space for that? yeah you are a white south african alright lmao and who the hell doesn't know white people live in south africa

@Myroseah wow.. So hostile. People can rarely help themselves in situations like this. It's great, of course, if you can stay calm and think clearly about your next move, but still nothing is guaranteed. For context, violent crimes and homicides in South Africa are INCREDIBLY common. If you survive a situation like this, you are the exception. And that's not because you're a better fighter, or more street smart. How many people do you think have survived gunshot wounds because they were calm and collected..? This woman is humble and attributes her survival to God, and by doing that she is showing far more wisdom and intellect than someone who views themself as invincible and in control of their situations. Don't discredit this woman's faith, and don't discredit God!
