Ignore the idiotic poster above me. Your question was not offensive in any way.
Some white South Africans are not able to speak Afrikaans or perhaps are not as fluent in Afrikaans as they are in English but a lot of them are bilingual in both English and Afrikaans.
No, I do not find that question in anyway offensive and neither has anyone else that has answered the question. Her question was completely innocent, she even stated that she is not trying to be racist....it is an innocent question that she wants to know the answer to. How dare you tell people to go get an education when you can't even answer a question in a civilised manner. And what on earth do you mean by, 'if you are educated you will know more than one language?' I mean, what on earth is that supposed to mean, there are plenty of educated people that can speak only one language - talk about ignorance. Hey, I'm not the one with 9 thumbs down. To answer your question as well, I am British by nationality, I am from Iraq and I speak Arabic, English, French and Welsh. Good day to you.
You complete and utter idiot. I as born in Iraq, yes, but I moved to Britain when I was two years old. I am a British citizen, I have a British passport, I am British. I think it's you who needs an education. Furthermore, even if I was living in Iraq I still wouldn't be Arab because I'm an Iraqi Assyrian. So shove that up your pipe and smoke it.
