For anyone finishing high school, attending their Matric Ball aka Senior Prom is a highlight that caps a 13 year long school career from Grade R to Grade 12 and almost every school learner looks forward to that day.

A Cape Flats teen from Valhalla Park who attended Elsies River High School had other plans.

Jade le Roux gave up the Glits & Glamour of attending her Matric Ball and instead served 150 needy people with a meal and threw a party to honour her local community hero Charlene Petersen.

I am constantly asked if I see "so-called coloureds" as another tribe or race in the context of South Africa. Truth is that race is bullshit and a construct... BUT... in South Africa and even in the global context, the various versions of being black exists and is embedded in the way society is structured and thus to ignore that truth is to be fooled into thinking that SILENT COLLECTIVISM will make the black majority MAGICALLY UNITE.
