A GUIDELINE FOR STATISTICS AND QUESTIONS TO DETERMINE IF A GROUP OF PEOPLE WITHIN A COUNTRY IS BEING
(A) VICTIMIZED OR
(B) SUPPRESSED OR
(C) IN PHYSICAL DANGER
(Setting up these guidelines were prompted by a recent court decision to grant asylum to a white South African)
Guidelines to statistics and questions that can determine if a group of people should receive refugee status in their country of ancestry and other sympathetic countries.
The Statistics/Questions to be determined/answered relating to the race or group who seeks asylum:
What percentage, living in the capital city of the country in question, has been a victim of crime or violence on more than one occasion?
What are the statistics of murders (or unnatural deaths) of citizens living in the farming community of the country in question?
Do they have equal chance, without restriction, to compete on the business arena?
Do they compete equally, on merit, to qualify for tertiary education?
Are they being suppressed, as a race, to give another race time to catch up?
Do they receive equal opportunity to receive financial aid in the form of pensions, disability, and study grants?
Do they have an equal chance to get promoted at work?
Are they being suppressed, in any way, to give another group the chance to advance?
Are their lives in danger?
Do they live in fear?
If the above points do not score 100% in the favor of the group or race in question, they can be considered as being victimized or suppressed.
The compassion of first world countries, in regards to suppressed or victimized citizens in African countries, can alleviate the problem by offering them refugee status.
By opening a door to escape victimization and suppression may help to level the playing field in the country in question. (If it is perceived as unbalanced due to the group of people in question)
Perhaps the international community should review guidelines relating to who should qualify for refugee status.
Killing a group of people emotionally, may be as bad as killing them physically.
Suppressed or victimized people should have the opportunity to return to their country of ancestry.
