White Racism Still Exists In South Africa

Three Pretoria High Court judges expressed their shock at the Hoerskol Emelo and its governing board for displaying insensitivity to students who did not wish to be taught by teachers using the language of Afrkaans. Last year the judges rejected the application of the school to set aside a government action which empowered it rather than school authorities in deciding the language of instruction. The school insisted it lacked classroom space to accomodate a wide range of students even though its enrolmment is at the lowest rate in the school’s history. The court insisted children have a right to attend schools in their community which have space available and the Hoeerskol Emelo definitely has space.

The majority of people in South Africa have adjusted to life in a society in which they are now a minority. But, there are those who still seek to create white enclaves that keep out the undesirable black skinned students. Both white and black skinned children will benefit from attending the same school, one in which the language of instruction is in English.

    I am shocked at the poor reporting in this article. You have turned a language and cultural difference into racial problem. Its people like you that perpetuate the issue. When you point a finger, four more point back at you. Just look at the African-American “ghettos” popping up around the USA. The US are the most racist nation I know of in this world today.

    I have never hestiated to deal with American racism. I have taught in black ghettoes and am very familiar with bigotry and prejudice. Your problem is not grasping how what you term “language and cultural differences” is merely a subtle way of masking your own bigotry. I welcome anyone who wishes to attack American racism since I constantly do so. By the way, we have been dealing with racism, not as successfully as I wish, but if you had a minute grasp of American history, you might know what has transpired over the past fifty years.

    Racism is not a one way street and too often the school yard bully looks to kick the little ones telling them of their mistakes, this rubs off on the bully’s supporters without anyone taking notice of their own backyard.
