A Zulu word used in South Africa meaning 'white person'. Originally it comes from the white foam that collects along the shore of the beach.
We Sipho! Umlungu ukhona. (Hey Sipho! The white person is here.)

White person. Used in Southern Africa by Black people. Contemptuous and offensive.
I'm speaking Zulu under my breath so this stupid umlungu doesn't realise that I'm insulting him, while pretending to help him. By the time he finds out that I've ripped him off, I'll be long gone.
