In a country with such diverse cultures as in South Africa, it's only natural that people have questions about quirks and habits that seem to belong to specific cultures. When one South African invited black people to ask any questions about white people, the comments were ridiculously funny.
When South African youth Louwrence van Niekerk invited his black countrymen to ask any questions about white people, it led to a humorous and interesting discussion.
People got to ask the questions they were too shy to ask in person, like whether it's painful for white people to dance and why white ladies go to the hair salon and come out looking the same as before.
The best part of the social media conversation was that no one got offended or angry, it was all laughs and jokes.
Here are a few of our favourite questions and their answers:
Mercy Mudoni - Why is almost every white men especially Afrikaans one called Jacques ,almost every men got that name
Andre Potgieter - It’s like Sipho or Precious or Beauty with you
Karischa Kriel - Or Sibusiso, Thabiso or Mbali (you know the whole spelling to this one) my tongue can’t pronounce it! But we also have a lot of Johan, Herman and Susan!
Mist Jenkins - Honestly I’ve never met someone named Sipho.. only in my maths books
Keorapetse Modillane - Isn't it painful when you guys try to dance?
Werner Van Der Merwe - We first need to lubricate our joints with some brandy before we try usually. Otherwise it would be painful
Mista Timba - Why do white ladies go to the hair salon, spend two hours there, pay loads of cash and come out with same hair?
Jonathan Temple - More importantly, it's still all their own hair!!! They didn't buy more... It's like going to Nandos with your own chicken, and paying someone else to cook it.
Vernon Eckstein - For the first time,As a whittie I am actually enjoying reading the comments on a RSA post concerning colour Laughed so hard

Veve MmeIya Mancana - How do you keep your relationships strong_ Old people walking around holding hands
Schane Roets - my grandparents had a rule. Never go to sleep angry at one another . And always hold each others hand no matter how angry they were with each other
This is the kind of vibe we need in the government - tolerance and acceptance.
