    Black in South Africa mean culturally Black African.

    Coloured in South Africa are a completely seperate culture of mainly mixed heritage and Africaans language and culture.

    Chinese and Indian fit in and around.

    Coloureds are culturally and ethnically different to Blacks even if some people want to incorrectly call them the same.

    Just because they are darker than white does not put them in the same category. You need to check names for simple clues. eg Ntini = Black African, Prince = Coloured.

    Yeah i know, but unbeknown to some, black is in fact a colour. I know what you're talking about, but i don't think it's fair to call cricinfo writers out on calling a person with black skin black.

    Everyone who's not made of glass is coloured, I'd say.

    I was also told in school that black isn't a colour IIRC

    Interesting. I don't think I've ever come across anyone not like being called 'black', but I'll take your word for it.

    Appalling. Only saw a couple of clips on Youtube, but that was enough. Whoever it was playing Jeff appears to be one of the worst actors I've ever seen.

    CH7 commentary at the tennis

    Absolute balls up...during Tomic's game last night he was playing some solid slices etc "oo those shots are just like what Andy Murray does" or when he didnt chase balls "he gives up on the balls he knows are too good, just like a young Agassi used to do"

    FFS, the kid is 16...Bernard Tomic plays like Bernard Tomic, not Andy Murray or any other tennis player to have hit a slice backhand or whipping forehand.

    Add to that afetr Dokic's win "so safe to say you're back!?" it was one good win, when she knocks off the williams sisters then we can say she's back.
