Has violence become normal and Afrikaans an outcast? For some reason nearly everyone seems to jump on the bandwagon as soon as they get a chance to (help) annihilate the role and influence of Afrikaans or Afrikaners at universities, yet they seem to remain somewhat deaf, blind or both when it comes to violent outbreaks at their beloved ‘transformed’ universities.
