For the sake of this observation I need to mention colour. So I was in the bank today sorting out some stuff and while I was waiting I saw this little white boy spinning in circles on the floor. He clearly was very bored. Then across the way, a little black boy noticed this and managed to get his attention.
Then a little “tango” of showing off began. The white boy continued his circles. The little black boy then ran up to him with his thumbs up. They gave each a “high one” with their thumbs colliding. You see the white boy (who was also a little older) was an Afrikaans boy and this young black boy (was more than likely isiZulu) and thus you could expect a bit of a dilemma. Lost in translation.
But that didn’t stop them having fun. They began to chase one another around the bank, giggling the whole time. A momentary friendship was born. Joy for a little while. And no words exchanged.
Black and white.
The rainbow nation…
