Staying on the topic of surpise in corners of the world?
Did you know there are Chinese South Africans?
The inresting thing about this is that, in post aprtheid South Africa, the Chinese South Africans went to court demanding to be classified as "Blacks".
They claim they were discriminated against during apartheid era just like backs, and therefore deserve to be compensated for past discrimination just like blacks are.
Guess what? They won and... are now are blacks
I read a story, which I hope South Africans)s on this TF(ranfurly
) can attest the veracity of, ... or set me straight that it belongs in fiction
Apparently, in the crazy world of white apartheid race-obsessed minds, they had a specific classification for the following people of these countries
- Mainland Chinese were non-whites
- Taiwan Chinese were whites
- Japanese and Koeans were also whites
No word about the Singapore, Hongkong.. chinese
