Apologies to you Aslam ( and the list )
No-one else speaks up for us and so we have to do it ourselves
The ad you have just placed is blatantly discriminatory and racist
( I would like to lodge a formal complaint )
But seeing as you want to talk race lets look at the history.
How is it that White males are somehow invisible -- are we not Africans
and South Africans.
Pieter Potter the first surveyor in Southern Africa 1657 ( surveyed the
early plots of the " free-burghers" ) was a white person from Holland.
Although as far as I know people from the Asian sub-continent were
present in the early Cape as slaves , the large scale immigration of
"Indians" to South Africa only occourred in 1860 ( specifically in what
was then Natal )
The early slave population at the Cape no longer exists as a distinct and
separate demographic group -- unless one wants to speak of the "Cape
Coloureds" but now we are getting into old regime race classification --
something the current government seems to be very good at emulating and
which you have -- with your ad -- just propogated.
I hope you understand to what extent the dept RDLR is amiss in
promulgating such a short sighted and RACIST policy !
