Zelda Jongbloed supports Oprah's school

In a very interesting article Zelda Jongbloed, come up for Oprah's 'elite' school, which are being attacked for supposedly only allowing only black girls at the school, in Die Burger (DB). (Back in the days we called the Burger, die Buiger). I also had the impression that we only see black girls, till I saw a few photos, where I noticed white, Indian and Bruin girls. The question is however, should we be so colour conscious ? Is this not precisely indicative of our inherent racialised genetic programming or simply testimony of how well apartheid did its job. Shouldn't we just see young needy, but also deserving girls, irrespective of colour ?
