Racism in Zimbabwe most often refers to racism primarily against white communities in the country.[1][2][3] After the collapse of white-ruled Rhodesia wherein the majority of farmland was owned by the white minority, a new ZANU government was formed in Zimbabwe. This government, led by Robert Mugabe, forcefully evicted much of the population from their farms. The white population of Zimbabwe has subsequently declined from a peak of 260,000 in 1975 (four percent of the population) to under 30,000 in 2014.[4][5] Genocide Watch has declared the violence against whites in Zimbabwe a stage 5 case.[6]
