I have relocated inside of South Africa and as of this writing the process of settling into a new place, a new job, and meeting new faces makes for an interesting and engaging time.
So I am due in class in about five minutes but the urge to write here brings this untimely update.
Though my class is focused on political philosophy of the classical era it will be interesting to see if I can coax students to link a few thoughts to Hillary Clinton's visit to our continent ... I may be stretching it here but hey it is worth a try.
This morning I was also reading Max Du Preez's article entitled "Non-racial country? Non-sense" (2009-08-05 09:23), and it reminded me of some of the discussion I attempted below.
I like Max Du Preez's writing for the most part. He never fails to pinch at the central nerve of what is going on in South Africa.
And, if anything is still going on then it has to be race and racism.
AnyHowze, this post serves as some contrived "I'm back again" notice and I hope you will stop by and holla from time to time nontheless.
