Marcus Framke's insight:
This video shows positives and negative things about the Karoo region. It shows you just how a regular day in South Africa is for them. The vidoe also shows how people go on about there lives while in poverty and these harsh conditions.
Ruled by a white minority government for forty-five years, South Africa enforced a legal racial separation called apartheid from 1948 until the National Party lost control of the country in 1994. Arguably the most powerful nation in Africa, a slowdown in the manufacturing and mining sector caused the country to enter a recession in 2009. The population of South Africa is estimated at 49 million. Black Africans make up 79 percent and include such peoples as Zulu, Xhosa, Northern and Southern Sotho, Tswana, Shangana-Tsongo, and Swazi. Whites make up 9.6 percent of the population and are of Dutch, French Huguenot, German, and British descent. People known as the Cape Coloureds, of mixed white, Hottentot, and other African, Indian, and Malay descent, make up 8.9 percent. Now it obvious South Africa's government is corrupt just by paying attention to the statistics. The whites are considered the minority, they only made up 9.6% worth of the country and they ruled the government for forty-five years. The government was discriminating the blacks and being unlawful and unfair towards them.

Then his mom decided to also pack up there stuff and move to Klipdorp, in the semi desert Karoo region. At his new school, Klipdorp high the kids didn't like him and gave him dirty looks because he was different, Douglas was a boy that is long haired while the other boys have shaved heads.

South Africa ranking in Test cricket: No1. South Africa's ranking in ODIs: No1. South Africa's ranking T20 internationals: No1.It's an unprecedented show of ranking dominance, but in the case of the two limited-overs formats, the No1 spot is something that's regarded with indifference in the South African camp. Being Test No1 was long a goal for a side that had been together for a long time. The challenge in the five-day format is to hold on to the position. In south Africa cricket is a very popular sport.
Oscar Pistorius tells a story of his time at boarding school in South Africa. One night his fellow pupils hid his prosthetic legs and then poured lighter fluid over his metal bedside locker. They woke him with shouts of "fire, fire" and watched from behind the door as he scrambled in vain on the floor for his missing limbs. Express surprise to him over his treatment by a group he describes as "friends" and his reply is certain - all he wants is to be treated as they would treat anyone. All he has ever wanted as a sportsman is to be treated equally.
