Theuns Cloete Notes the Basic Difference Between Boer and Afrikaner.

The following excerpt from Theuns Cloete of Boervolk Radio notes the basic difference between Boer & Afrikaner. The term Afrikaner was used by the establishment / media & politicians in the 20th cent to describe all Afrikaans speakers yet the Boer people had a distinct history & existence long before the Cape Dutch appropriated the amorphous term Afrikaner in the late 19th cent & then later applied it to all Afrikaans speakers in a sharp political context.

The Boer people were & are still overshadowed by the Afrikaner designation.
