Yesterday an acquaintance discovered that I was going to Botswana for the second time next year, a trip which involves travelling via South Africa. "I spent a night in Johannesburg once," she confided, "but I didn't like it." Oh, why? "I thought it would be white people with just a few black people, but they were all black!".

Wow. WOW. I'm going to leave the racism just lying there, because what can I say that isn't completely obvious? Forging bravely on, I asked her why she would have thought that South Africa had a majority white population. "When you meet South Africans in New Zealand," she explained with unassailable logic, "all of them are white!".

Africa. Where the WHITE people live.
