Seems to come off as an arrogant black man… Yet I’m sure he believes Afrikaans to be a “Black” thing along with ebonics and street language… Unfortunately for his ignorant ass Afrikaans is a West German Dialect spoken mainly in S. Africa…
@455rocket: I don’t think Ron is just misunderstanding what Afrikaans is. He’s also got Xhosa (isiXhosa) listed, which is the major southern Bantu language spoken in dozens of dialects across the southernmost region from Cape Town to the edge of KwaZulu-Natal. Those goddamn clicks are a bitch to master–not as bad as (say) !Kung but still pretty challenging.
So he’s got to have some kind of knowledge about South Africa (a parent? idle interest?), or be from South Africa. But clearly he is inculturated in North America or fakes it really, really well, because the choices of street slang in both Cape Town and Mthatha have very British-SA qualities and words. Else, he might be someone just fucking with everybody.
I tried to go find him but I think he is hiding now.
