It may seem like South Africa is still rather racist with its ongoing race classifications; BEE and Affirmative Action strategies still being implemented 16 years after the demise of Apartheid; and recent affairs. However, South Africans are not all racist; in fact there exists a visible tolerance of different racial groups, cultures and customs that surpasses all racial distinctions.

/ THEME: tolerance
Being tolerant suggests that the person who is tolerating is somehow superior to the person or situation that needs to be tolerated, the way a teacher might tolerate rude behavior from a young student who doesn’t know any better. Tolerance is saying that one person is less than the other, or that one culture is better than another. So in that sense, being tolerant doesn’t necessarily have a whole lot to do with being PC, just with having patience.
