The Racist’s Guide To The People Of SA
Author: Simon Kilpatrick
Genre: Humour/South African non-fiction
RELEASE DATE: October 2010
ABOUT THE BOOK
A politically incorrect, comprehensively unscientific and exceptionally funny “guidebook” that identifies – and pokes fun at – the people of the Rainbow Nation, the Racist’s Guide is written for all the South Africans it parodies. The book is satirical to its core, noting from the start that “Blacks”, “English Whites”, “Afrikaners”, “Coloureds”, “Indians” and “Miscellaneous” are the primary races to be encountered in the land. It is without a doubt required reading for all South Africans so that they might discover the answer to the country’s many pressing racial issues, such as:
- What does a stressed Black look like?
- Why should you never give a White woman a white-gold engagement ring?
- What do Afrikaans people do for fun?
- Why do Indian men always play sport in jeans?
- How do Coloured gangsters fare in the navy?
- What’s the best way to greet a Chinese South African?

“Gentle and surprisingly funny, The Racist’s Guide is unlikely to ruffle feathers of any but the most gratuitously sensitive, and its elegantly old-fashioned brand of wit is suitable for all ages.” – Sunday Times
“Required reading for all South Africans… Magnanimous and heart-warming, this book turns out to be a celebration of all the people of South Africa, rather than a critique.” – ZA Difference
