Chinese, the New Blacks

Check it: S Africa Chinese 'become black'

I guess Chinese in South Africa (200,000 of them. WHO KNEW?!?!) were classified as 'white' beforehand, but were steadily being discrimnated in business and economic opportunities. So, in a country where (some 15 years after the Apartheid) whites make approx. 450% more than blacks, and where there are special legalized Employment and Economic Equity programs intended for black/colored workers, Chinese people are now grouped in the 'colored' classification and can now receive this aide as well.

Hey, as long as I can still call them Chinks, I'm game.
