I once knew a Xhosa. Thats a comedian, right?

Tonight a friend who is studying Political Science picked up my copy of Long Walk to Freedom and said that the person on the cover looked familiar. The man on the cover is the author, Nelson Mandela.

The conversation that followed revealed that this person either didn't know or couldn't recall what apartheid was.

I don't want to be arrogant, but I am shocked.

I am hopeful that this man just hasn't had the right classes yet, but how does someone looking to go into politics not know about this?

Please leave feedback. I want to know if I am justified in being shocked.

You are justified. Completely.
