My partner and I got on a Golden Arrow Bus from Observatory to Cape Town. We sat down, opened a window, it was really hot already!!! So we just here these people start talking loud on the bus about 3 rows back. Suddenly a woman jumps over us and slams the window closed! She said to us: "No you must not open the window!" She was screaming at us and pointing towards us with her finger. My partner gets up and tells the bus driver that we are being verbally assaulted by a passenger! He said there is nothing he can do about it! So now they are screaming that this is their bus, we should be taking a car, we must "foetsek" and I don't know what else because they are talking Xhosa. We got up and sat in front for fear of our lives! The bus driver were laughing with them and I am now so scared of getting on a bus or opening a window! We both put in a complaint, we got a call 2 days ago saying that it is our own fault to get on a "black-only" bus! How does that work. By the way, we are white and all of the passengers were black. Did I do something wrong? Is this racist or am I just being oversensitive???
