Gender and Race Differences in Leader Behaviour Preferences in South Africa - page 22 / 35

Coloureds believing they might eventually be accepted by Whites, individually they had difficulty identifying even with the broader Coloured community (Goldin, 1987).  This indicates a destruction of positive self-concept in Coloureds to such a degree that some identified more with Whites than others. However, there is the suggestion that Coloureds continue to occupy a marginal position in South African society despite the end of apartheid.  A popular phrase whispered by Coloureds in post-apartheid South Africa is:  “During apartheid we were not White enough.  Today, we are not Black enough.”
