The Billboard

Re: the issue of the billboard discussed below. It doesn't matter what the technical status of Afrikaans is, whoever made that billboard was acting in bad faith, excluding Afrikaans on purpose. The indigenous-ness, or not, of Afrikaans is not the issue here. The issue is that Afrikaans was purposefully not given the benefit of the doubt, and anyone living in SA would be aware of the sensitivities. Let's face it: it was clearly malicious. (Also, let's get used to it.)

Bloody uitlanders.
