I have a friend who suggested that he call himself a 'Euro-African'. I quite like the idea. If black people in America are African Americans, maybe white people in SA should be Euro-Africans. To me, it sounds better than 'white'.
I still prefer to get away from race, but if Black Consciousness insists on dividing us by race, then perhaps we need to establish a Euro-African identity.
I wonder if the term has negative connotations that haven't ocurred to me?
