********The word Afrikan is used rather than the traditional African in most instances. Spelling Afrika with a ‘K’ represents an acknowledgment that ‘Africa’ is not the true name of that vast continent. In doing so it represents a non-European, Afrikan-centred perspective. Hence, Afrika with a ‘K’ offers a redefined and potentially different Afrika, symbolising the reclaiming of a unified Afrikan identity and people worldwide. (Miller, 1986: 35)

ii. Afriphobia is specifically racism against Afrikan/African People. It refers to a range of negative attitudes and feelings towards Afrikan people globally. Definitions refer to irrational fear, with the implication of antipathy, contempt and aversion. It is apparent in acts of discrimination and racist violence on the basis of a person’s skin colour, racial/ethnic origin, and nationality. Afriphobia is discrimination on grounds that seek to dehumanise a large group of people, to deny their humanity, their dignity and personhood, this includes Afriphobic hate crimes through verbal abuse, degrading language and physical violence against Afrikan people.
