SA Leather Talks Race, Racism and Apartheid: Part 2


"by Herman Groenewald- I want to tell you about me, and various people in South Africa. Please understand that I will use typically South Africanisms to explain my story. I was born before the apartheid era, and lived through it, and am still here in Cape Town, where I was born, in a mixed race area. That is, there were white people and people of mixed race locally known as coloured people all living in harmony. At a very young age I went with my family (Dad, Mother and youngest sister who is three years older than me) to a big building in town to proclaim that a family living four doors away from where we lived were known as white. The father was a white man from England and the mother was coloured. They had three sons and a daughter, who were my childhood playmates. We as a family, had to state that we knew them as an all white family so they could be classified as white and therefore benefit from certain privileges, such as, they were able to go to cinemas, restaurants and white schools,where the learning was better."
