"South African white supremacist leader Eugene Terreblanche killed" from World News

This article discusses how Eugene Terreblanche, a white supremacist leader in South Africa, has been brutally murdered. Hacked with a machete and beaten by a 21-year-old man and a 15-year-old boy. On saturday, these two were arrested facing criminal charges of murder. Terreblanche once was a South African police officer before becoming a white supremacist leader. Eugene had motives to create a white homeland in south Africa and campaigned it throughout the country. Terreblanche was known for his apartheid, or inhuman acts of one racial group to the next in an attempt to oppress them. This shows that to this day there is still racism going on and to a certain extent, racism hasn't been slowly drifting away, it has been hiding. There is some historic progress in which racism has been losing its popularity but things never seem to change as this man and his team of followers try to campaign for independent white homeland. Racism is a big topic in the world today and these two boys seemed to take matters in their own hands when they brutally murdered this white supremacist leader.
