    I love the way you slotted in a 3-piece sequence of darkies (you can tell by the uniform, age, expressions, they’re workers there) just to make the piece seem more cosmopolitan!

    Is this what Oppikoppi looks like? White as the driven snow? No coloureds, Indians, Asians, Arabs? Just a handful of them thar blacks (used one as the opening photograph) and the rest a tidal wave of whiteys?

    what are you talking about? some of those guys are from the band Tidal Waves the others are just regular punters. It’s your mind that’s racially segregated. Hope all that guilt is working out for you…

    Oh and anonymous to quote Dave Durbach in http://www.mahala.co.za/music/jocks-of-the-bushveld/

    “While some may think it encouraging that a few black people showed up and enjoyed themselves, the demographics of any audience obviously comes down to the music on offer. It may be the biggest music festival in SA, but Oppikoppi is still a rock festival. Given that most decent music is being put out by Afrikaans bands, no one expects the audience to be anything other than predominantly white and Afrikaans. Maybe that’s the key to the festival’s continued success – it doesn’t pretend to be anything other than what it really is: a great place to get fucked up.”

    Anonymous, you are a twat.

    These are simply a bunch of photographs taken of people at Koppi in the order I encountered them. I did not go out to “make the piece seem more cosmopolitan”. That would be stupid, too much effort and a little racist. If I had come across any of the other ethnic groups you mentioned, I would’ve taken photos of them. Its a god damned festival – these were the people I ran into at the festival.

    Stop trying to read into everything just so you can have your moronic say under the lovely protected guise of anonymous.

    Damn we’re a bunch of funny-looking fuckers, eh? I found it more fun to scroll really quickly up and down the page – the changing faces, expressions, skin tones and facial hairstyles are classic!

    oi anonymous, i think you the one with a few racial prejudice issues for assuming that the black folks that mister kevin captured on his camera are workers….. Whats with that? Are you one of those South Africans who fell over backwards when you first visited the U.K because you saw white folks sweeping the streets?

    wena. eish.
