In an airplane the captain tells the passengers:
- This is your captain speaking. We are losing altitude and we do not have enough fuel to reach land. Therefore, we have to let all the baggage leave the airplane.
The airplane gains altitude again. Half an hour later the airplane begins losing altitude again and the captain is on the loudspeakers once more:
- This is your captain speaking. We are still losing altitude and we cannot reach land without having some passengers leave the plane. It
is a bad situation, but we will do this in a honest and democratic way - we will use the alphabet, starting with A. Are there any African passengers?
No one answers.
- Are there any Black passengers?
No answer.
- Are there any Coloured passengers?
No answer.
In the back of the plane, a little boy asks his father:
- Dad, you've always told me to be honest. We are both from Africa and have black coloured skin.
- Yes, my son, it is true. But stricly speaking, we're Zulus.
