Reeva Steenkamp[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm HelenOnline. I noticed that you made a change to an article, Reeva Steenkamp, but you didn't provide a reliable source. It's been removed for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so! If you need guidance on referencing, please see the referencing for beginners tutorial, or if you think I made a mistake, you can leave me a message on my talk page. From your contributions history you appear to understand the need for reliable sources here, yet you have repeatedly added unsourced categories to this article. Please do not make assumptions based on surname (if that is what you are doing). Steenkamp is a Dutch surname as well as an Afrikaans surname, and there are descendants of Dutch immigrants in South Africa who are not Afrikaners. Apart from that, being of Afrikaner descent does not make one an Afrikaner. There are many people of mixed descent in South Africa. From the family's first names, her schooling and her written communication read out in court it is far more likely that her first language was English, which would mean she was not an Afrikaner. Perhaps you have strong reasons to believe the contrary, but you would still need to cite a reliable source in order to add it here. HelenOnline 07:06, 31 March 2014 (UTC)
