Dont call me European!
With white South Africans trying to find identity in the new South Africa, the new generation of youth who were not involved in Apartheid have started shouting out at the "colonial" labels everyone loves giving us, and using as an excuse.
A song from a band called the Transkei Cowboys:
The terms European and African should remain regional titles and not skin colors.

All I can think of is the scene from Monty Python and the holy grail where the bridgekeeper asks Lancelot the air speed velocity of a swallow and Lancelot replies " what? African or European?"...AAArrrggghhh!!!
Besides, I doubt anybody is calling anybody Africans or Europeans.

The term "African" means "black" in most people's minds.
How about "white" or whatever "white" is in Afrikans?
Also, why the fuck would you want to be identified with Africa? It is the worse continent on the planet.

06-08-08, 12:21 PM #12Natives were sent to school to make them assimilate in a society that was enforced upon them.
It's true that not all native tribes were forced onto reservations, but, for the most part, those who weren't have pretty much vanished entirely. Absorbed into the country as a whole. Not because they were forced to, but because they chose to.
I take it you don't like the idea of a melting pot?

Most of the people in South Africa are descendants of immigrants within the past couple of thousand years. Two or three waves of Bantu, and more recently Afrikaans. http://www.south-africa-tours-and-travel.com/bantu.html
There are some "native" people to the region, in the sense that we don't know exactly when they arrived, but they aren't as violently involved in this controversy. The Bantu did not treat them well, nor did the Afrikaans.

I suppose the past still has an effect on you.
