Springboks Not Black Enough

A good article in this week's issue of The Economist magazine about South Africa's national rugby team not being representative enough of the racial composition of the country. The bottom line is really simple. Provide better conditions for black children to practice rugby in schools and the national team will become more and more colored. But as long as they are world champions, one shouldn't worry about the team's racial composition because "the national teams' success, more than their racial make-up, is the real unifier".
