It can't be, the blacks loved and preferred Afrikaans so they must have been protesting against English. You sure you are not revising history?:unsure:
Freedom before education. Looking at the last 25 years the problem is still education, not the language in which it is presented.

Maybe if "indigenous"(used loosely ,great fish river and all that) languages had words and concepts for every single mathematical and scientific principal then we could say its harder to learn in another language.

Exactly right , this is the legacy they fostered in their haste to become the leading party (ANC) , kinda backfired though , except for the part where people still vote ANC.

Some misunderstood it to be freedom from education? Languages and all that, deliberately deceptive with everything being mother tounge and Afrikaans. Plausible? :whistling:

I'm compelled to ask... How's he a crook?
crook (noun): a very dishonest person, especially a criminal or a cheat

He's made some dishonest claims wrt other teams, he punched a security guard (assault) for which charges were laid with saps & the psl also found him guilty of.

Seems to fit the definition of a crook.

Black people (generally) find English easier. Why? Because their families and friends already speak it so they get more exposure to it growing up

Even if you could somehow objectively prove that Afrikaans in and of itself is easier than English, it makes no difference to somebody that grew up with English around them. That exposure alone will make English easier to them than Afrikaans.
With Knyro on this and obviously depends where you lived. How did my English speaking dad learn Afrikaans? He lived in bethlehem and no choice really.

I think people in SA (most definitely myself include) are now slowly getting tired of all the blame that gets shifted by the previously disadvantaged clan that seems to be incapable of accepting responsibility for their own actions. That's why they would have the privilege these days of uttering the most racist remarks at myself and not be held accountable. Guess that's the new normal.
