ALEXANDER, Neville. Citizenship, racial identity and nation building in South Africa. Tempo soc. [online]. 2006, vol.18, n.2, pp. 113-129. ISSN 0103-2070. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-20702006000200006.

It problematises this state of affairs and suggests an alternative, less divisive and dangerous course.
