BTW, what is the correct spelling of Afrikanner or Afrikaaner
Neither, Afrikaner is the correct way haha,
Most people get used to our words having double vowels, so it's a common mistake to make. I make it while typing.
No, it shouldn't have been an exception either, it crippled alot of good black players, and townships in general to get their people into playing rugby but also continued separatism throughout other sports, which was stupid because we were all banned from playing internationally
Not so much now, you will see it more in the crowds with white Saffa's singing only "Die Stem", and refusing to stand for the rest of the anthem, generally these people are from the farm lands in the Western/Northern Cape, Boerland.
We were allowed to play back internationally in 91/92.
