Race Relations Part 1 Colour Blind

Season 5 Episode 19

Thu, 6 Nov 2014 10:00pm

“When it comes to dating coloured and black guys….not really my thing. I’ve had friends who have been in relationships with coloured and black males and a lot of the relationships were very abusive….so I don’t want that for myself”

As the generation born into a completely democratic context, we asked a group of Born Frees: “Is colour an issue when dating?” In ‘Race Relations Part 1 Colour Blind, students discuss racial integration, parental influence on what they believe about race and their own experiences with interracial dating. Begging the question: Have they really been born in a complete blank space?

    You guys forget that cape town people are a breed of its own. Im white and I went to all white girls school, mid high school, and I too didnt make friends until a long time because cape town people are clicky.

      Hey Megan! This is Brian the dude with the odd haircut in the video!

      I agree hey Cape Town is definitely cliquey but at least in the University Residence environment very few Cape Townians were actually present. Most students, including myself, came from all parts of the country.

        Thanks for participating Brian and for posting a comment. The talk was great, you guys highlighted a lot of important points on how Cape Town is largely divided in terms of the races.

      Thanks for your comment Megan. So true about Capetonians.
