It was during this time that South Africans were finally able to see that the end of the Apartheid era was coming. I, my friends was- and still am- classified as a coloured. My parents are coloured and so are their parents. FYI- in South Africa, the term coloured refers to a multiracial ethnic group that originated from events of the Dutch colonization of South Africa. As groups of settlers moved away from the Cape settlement to develop farms, they needed workers.

Dutchmen in the early Cape settlement would ply Khoekhoen with liquor as an inducement for them to perform a ritual dance. The lyric accompanying the dance sounded, in Dutch ears, like hot-en-tot. As such it was used in reference to all hunter-gatherer populations of the Southern African region who Khoekhoe -speaking communities came into contact with, and was largely a term referring to a lifestyle, distinct from a pastoralist or agriculturalist one, not any particular ethnicity. While there are attendant cosmologies and languages associated with this way of life, the term is an economic designator, rather than a cultural or ethnic one. Khoekhoen is an ethnic designator. It refers to several populations which speak closely related languages and which are considered to be the historical pastoralist communities in the South African Cape region , through to Namibia , where Khoekhoe populations of Nama and Damara people are prevalent ethnicities.

The boy of fair skin - but not what is called white in South Africa - came home from school the other day and told his mother, who is dark of skin, that blacks smelled bad. As she recounted the story, the mother told her 4-year-old son, the child of a white man and a dark-skinned woman, that his assessment was wrong. After all, she said, she was black and did not smell bad. But the boy persisted, she said, saying he loved his father because he was white like him and did not love his mother.
