Colonials


The Council of South African Students has called for the immediate closure of Afrikaans medium schools, saying:
Cosas condemns any racial tendencies that seeks to close doors of learning for the black African students, who are indigenous people of this country and Africa at large by having foreign, un-original Afrikaans as a medium of instruction in some racist schools, more especially in the West Rand region under racist Afrikaners management,


Apart from the excruciating use of English by COSAS (and don't argue that it's not your first language - you are encouraged by our constitution to express yourself in any one of our 11 official languages), I am flummoxed as usual by the Bantu population's insistence on being thought of as indigenous.

Of course you're not indigenous. You started the massacre of the true indigenous people yourselves.
Now, get over it.
