Yes, The messages of history. I was quite stunned by the SABC politburo take on the recent festival and recognition of "coloured" people in South Africa. They had no problem with the idea that Adam Kok and the Griquas (they originally called themselves the bastards so they had no problem working out where they came from, the British administration complained about the slur and they renamed themselves Griquas) moved to the area of Kokstad because there was no one else there at the time but reject completely the idea that areas that white settlers moved into in Natal may also have been empty. I'm pretty sure that in all cases there was a small population of bushmen who got a bit narked.
