Coloured? This is Zimbabwe for you!

HERE is a list of colourful phrases that one hears about mixed race coloured people in modern day Zimbabwe and, lest the mixed race coloured minority of Zimbabwe forget:



-serif”>This is Zimbabwe, Where everybody must speak Shona and Ndebele

This is Zimbabwe, Where you must go back to Britain

This is Zimbabwe, Where if you give land to the Coloureds it is like giving the land back to the white man

This is Zimbabwe, Where you must be indigenous to be Zimbabwean

This is Zimbabwe, Where you will be 00 from the cradle to the grave

This is Zimbabwe, Where you had things better than “blacks” under Rhodesia

This is Zimbabwe, Where we will fix you for calling yourself Coloured because WHAT is a coloured

This is Zimbabwe, Where you are either with us, (the blacks), or against us

This is Zimbabwe, Where you are with the whites

This is Zimbabwe.
