Re: RWC: Pool B: All Blacks vs Springboks: MATCH THREAD: Sep

It’s always revealingly ironic when people conflate ‘South Africans’ with ‘white’, or even more specifically, ‘Afrikaans South Africans’, within the context of condemning them for their racist history.[/quote] Yes I'd love to see someone telling a Zulu gold miner that he's not nice and a bad guy.

Re: Taika Waititi: New Zealand is racist as F@#k

Racism isn't about calling people names, cultural appropriation, mispronouncing words. If there isn't parity or a positive trend towards it in the following metrics, then your country has a legacy of entrenched racism and continues to be racist. Does New Zealand's: - Prison population reflect the ra...

You don't "define yourself as a nation" by how many people you kill in a concentration camp, its not a rugby match .

Dumb question, but whats your point? The ABs are known for consistency, regardless, they are always good. A lot of that has to do with the culture, politics, society, etc. which is by default relatively consistent. South Africa, is the complete opposite, life is more of a roller coaster ride, that ...

Re: Achtung Cape Town types

If I scrape all my shit together I could come up with about a bar to put down on a house, so would look for a bond of say 1-1.5 bar. I am also a fan of ownership. But will probably rent for a year or to get the lay of the land.
