Nicknamed “The Rainbow Nation”, South Africa's past has certainly been colorful, but not for the reasons you'd have hoped. With 54 million people residing in the country, tensions between white and blacks remain high, despite Nelson Mandella's post-apartheid legacy seemingly putting an end to years of prejudice.  There's also a lot of black-on-black crime, and the country itself has a very high rate of murders, assaults, rape, robberies, and other violent crimes.

According to local police records, around 50 people are murdered every day in South Africa.
