Hoe verander ons skole?
Die Departement van Onderwys het besluit om die die Laerskool kurrikulum te verander om aan te pas by die Regstellende Aksie Program van RSA en om Polities korrek te wees. Met ingang 1 Januarie 2006 sal die volgende van toepassing wees :
Sneeuwitjie word : Gitswartjie.
Changing culture of the black man
You grew up in the Township, but since you started working at Nissan, water affairs, blue ribbon, gcis, minerals, education,etc, you bought a flat and suddenly the Township is dangerous and dirty.
You start every sentence by saying "The thing is..." with a very strange accent.
You no longer wear All Star, you've opted for Diesel, Levi & " Uzzi".
You dumped your long-time, round and cute high school sweetheart for a SKINNY CHICK (Motsetserepa ko PINELANDS). Or now u want a 'DARK, TALL GUY" driving a 'G-string'.
KFC and Mc-Donald no longer do for lunch. You eat at exclusive restaurants (now you eat calamari & onion rings, and chicken liver starters !!!).
Hansa, Black Label and Castle, the ones you used to guzzle the most, are "urine" today. You drink Heineken and Windhoek.
Today Shoprite is for the poor (most blacks buy there), you do your groceries at Woolworth's & family stores.
The music system and wheels of your car double the price of your car. Your car smells more than your chick's perfume.
Your old friend asks for only R5. You say he must come next month because you didn't budget for him, but you buy your chick Smirnoff Spin / Archers peach flavour daily.
Your cell-phone costs more than your mother's bedroom suite! (true!!).
A friend without a cell and an e-mail address is not a true friend. Worse if he has no car.
Your old Kasie (township) friends must call before a visit to your flat. UNBELIEVABLE !!!
At your flat you don't have a landline phone; you strictly use your cell.
You call yourself a "bachelor", but you are married under the 'vat en sit' type of marriage.
You only visit your parents telephonically but it's just an hour's
drive to your home.
Smoking makes you slim!!!!
