They also came to the Americas and founded a settlement on the James River just out side of James town colony. This was because of religious persecution in France by the catholic church. the group of Huguenot's that came over here where lead by a doctor Perrie Chastain.

I do not understand the point you are trying to make?
The French refugees coming to South Africa was a very good thing even from the viewpoint of the Koisan.
You are trying to say refugees is not necessarily a bad thing?
Or that it is a good thing all together.
Or only a good thing if the refugees are white?

Howdy @Hanno,

I think the popular opinion about whites in Africa is that they came in the 19th century to loot the continent and lord it over the native populations.

@Jenna is pointing out that Afrikaaners came to South Africa over three centuries ago; about the same time, and for the same reasons, as the Pilgrims of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. They are as proud of those settlers as people in America are of tracing their ancestry back to the Mayflower.

@Jenna OK, just wondered as this is a political site if you were trying to say something specific.
The French left their mark on Afrikaners and the language, the double negative for example that is so rare in other languages comes from French.
And of course they are the main reason such good wine is being made in the Western Cape.

@timon_phocas That is actually the history of New Zealand! LOL!
