White supremacists in SA took another welcome blow last week when a black coach was appointed to the National Rugby Team, one of the still standing bastions of white privilege and racism, not before time.
The 'Springboks' will become the 'Proteas' the (national flower) another slap in the face for the racists is that the son of a famous white player who was a supporter of the ANC will become the captain, Luke Watson son of Dan 'cheeky' Watson who was good enough to play for SA but turned them down because of their racism, his life was threatened for this. The name for this is progress.
Some white players are refusing to play under a black coach and Luke Watson could be made captain, he has been regarded as the best player in the country but the Springboks refused to pick him because of his and his fathers' opposition to apartheid but that's where race hatred leads you.
As Bob Dylan sang "you better start swimming or you'll sink like a stone for the times they are a'changing" or in the words of Dr. King "free at last, free at last, thank God Almighty we are free at last" OK it's only a game, but it's a start.
