There are black racists too!

My white grandniece went for her driving test in Harare recently.

During the test the examiner had another black young lady, also waiting to take her test, accompany them in the back seat.


At some point there was a brief c

onversation in Shona, which my niece did not understand, but at the end of the test the black lady told my niece that the examiner had said he always fails varungu (whites) first time because “they have the money” .


I wonder…is this the policy of the whole Driving Licence Examining Body?


Also in Zimbabwe does the word “racist” only apply to whites?


Puzzled,


Mandara.
