Race bound­aries…

Diamond Fields Advertiser - - OPINION -

SIR – A big prob­lem that has emerged in South Africa to­day is the ques­tion of “race bound­aries”.

Who is black and who is white in some kind of static anal­y­sis. We have as a “sup­posed-to-be” rain­bow na­tion started to be­lieve in some­thing … many of us were sus­pi­cious of this in the first place. I, as a loyal PAC ac­tivist, sought a life with­out race – a way of be­ing me.

To­day we have lost the mean­ing of “be­ing me” and of be­long­ing to some dream, be­ing in­cluded in some cat­e­gory where a per­son can live for the land … not get lost on race bound­aries as if they were fac­tions! Derek B Grip­per
