South Africa; the rainbow nation.
Considering the stratification the nation faces within its classes and races, “rainbow” seems highly appropriate.
Let’s take a look at what makes a rainbow.
A rainbow is a meteorological phenomenon that is caused by reflection, refraction and dispersion of light in water droplets resulting in a spectrum of light appearing in the sky. It takes the form of a multicoloured arc.
However, as the individual units that make up the measure of the system (people) connect and share knowledge, the colour becomes diluted and dispersed.
Now, assuming that each human being is a water droplet (a unit), it can be said that the beauty of the colours can only exist when each unit bears the responsibility of reflecting “light” in every direction. In reality, units are hostile when interacting with different units. Unless the units speak uniting languages. Then, sharing perspectives and ideas becomes second nature. We learn about each other, we fall in love with each other. We aquire a culture and a baby rainbow is born.
Music is a good example of a uniting language.
