Burn? Or learn?

LOL, South Africans are funny. They burn down their own schools like wild fires but at the same time they get offended when they hear that people are building an Afrikaans university in Centurion. You burn your schools because you don’t care about them, but you care about the language used in a university owned by those who care about schools. Since you don’t want to stop burning schools, allow those who have a sense of national pride to build their own institutions. If you don’t want an Afrikaans university because it reminds you about the past, what do you remember when you look at the schools you burned to ashes?
