If "BLACK" refers to skin color as so many people have been fooled to beleive, then why are Chinese in South Africa being "reclassified" as "BLACK" ???
"The High Court in South Africa has ruled that Chinese South Africans are to be reclassified as black people.
It made the order so that ethnic Chinese can benefit from government policies aimed at ending white domination in the private sector. "
"The Chinese Association of South Africa took the government to court, saying its members had been discriminated against.
An estimated 200,000 ethnic Chinese live in South Africa. "
