Our aim has always been to create dialogue among people who fall within the Coloured population group exactly because we all have diversely differing ideas about what our group identity entails.
We take a look at how a 2015 Article by Eusebius McKaiser, The Coloured Mentality Video Series, The Indigenous Liberation Walk and Bruinou.com's Raison d'etre all tie in with each other.

Die storie van Boesman Myt is veel meer algemeen as wat mense besef en hoewel 'n mens later agterkom dat haar storie hom eintlik net so oor die twee dekades terug afspeel, hoor ons nog steeds so nou en dan 'n fluisterstorie of ons sien en lees flinkweg 'n klein koerantberiggie oor 'n soortgelyke geval hier op die Kaapsevlaktes.

Denver Lopez vertel die verhaal van een vrou maar Boesman Myt verteenwoordig ook 'n groot getal voorheen-landelike vrouens wie se stories almal as persoonlike geheimpies gedra word sonder om te kla. Baie van hulle het dalk nie onder dieselfde omstandighede in die Kaap beland nie en dalk moes hulle nie alles van dieselfde gruwele verduur nie maar dat hulle met alle soorte beloftes Kaap toe gebring is en dat hulle onmenslike werksomstandighede moes verduur is wat Boesman Myt hulle storie en ja, ook ons almal se storie maak.

Kanonafvurings by Taalmonument Gee Groot Aanstoot

Ons mense is ontsetlik Lief vir Afrikaans, maar ons taal wat ons so liefhet, het ontstaan uit geweld.
Die geboorte van Afrikaans was die dood van ‘n groot getal Khoe en San tale waarvan net ‘n paar nou oorleef en letterlik uit ‘n dreigende dood gered moet word.

Dit was Geweld teen Ons Khoe en San lewens, ons kultuur en ons tale asook geweld teen die lewens, kulture en tale van ons slawe voorouers uit ander Afrika-lande en die Asiatiese lande wat die grondslag gelê het vir die nuwe taal wat Ons Voorouers noodgedwone moes ontwikkel en waarvan ons ook later deur geweld onteien is asof ons geen deel in die ontstaan daarvan het nie.

There is much truth about our history hidden from us as South Africans. Our real history has purposefully and maliciously been distorted by Apartheid-era 'academics' in the interest of propagating the false notion that Camissa and South Africa was "civilised" by the Dutch upon the arrival of Jan van Riebeeck in 1652. 

Those who held power during colonisation and Apartheid erased and omitted any stories that would give Khoisan & Slave descendants a sense of dignity and a claim to an identity of their own. Most of our real history has still not been incorporated into academic literature and other mainstream resources and thus the truth, Our Truth, is still hidden.

Portrait of Simon van der Stel

The period 1679 to 1713 at the Cape of Good Hope was a time when the Colony was poised to develop in a number of possible directions large due to the efforts of two men who in today’s language would have been said to be “Coloured”. The first two Governors of the Cape Simon van der Stel and his son Willem Adrian van der Stel were remarkable men who made an indelible contribution to development at the Cape, laying the foundations for possibly a very different future to the trajectory on which the Cape and indeed South Africa would develop.
