Ok some people here are getting confused... Im south african so I know what Im talking about, An afrikaaner is an Afrikaans person, an afrikaans person is someone who talks afrikaans. Black south africans and white south africans that dont speak afrikaans are not afrikaaners. Afrikaaners are the ones that came up with the idea of apartheid, not the english south africans or the blacks. So people in south africa who arent afrikaans and you call them that will get really offended so I advise you not to.
American: HEY! so whats it like being an afrikaaner?
Black south african: what are you talking about??!? Im black and speak Zulu, im not afrikaans!!! (he then beats the american with a stick)
I'm also South African lol. Anyway, an Afrikaaner is a person who speaks Afrikaans. They came from Holland to South Africa and became farmers. Dutch changed and it became Afrikaans. After the England-Afrikaans war, the Afrikaans people started Apartheid. You don't find many black Afrikaaners.
