A Few Notes....
Just a few quick notes today:

Firstly, have a read of an interesting op-ed piece in today's Cape Times by Bennie Bunsee, exploring whether black people have the right to exclusivity. Bunsee argues that just as there are societies (and insurace companies!) for women, black people should have the right to form their own societies too.

Secondly, on a more humourous note, the fact that the ANC is still regarded as a "terrorist organisation" by the US Government, and ANC delegates, including Nelson Mandela, have to get a special State Department waiver to enter the US. How long ago was 1994?
