Can anyone give me an example of subjugated people's language being adopted by the "conqueror" to a significant extent like between the Khoikhoi and Xhosa??

How are the San NOT black?

Are you attempting to say they aren't "negroid".

Oh my god this is entirely not true! Its compeletely without any factual recording,mand stupid, its totaly white washed, european centric copy and paste version of african history. Europeans hate and despise one onother england and france, german and slav nations. But africa there isnt even the remortest evidence of that lifestyle existing. The bantu never moved into new terretories as an army...they were diverged clans moving into areas slightly out of their borders reach residually and untill eventually encompassing the whole of africa. The bantu success in migration never came as the price of war. But rather superior genetic adaptabillity, made them resilient and tough and robust, they over came the san through consentual sex selection. This is still the reputation giving bantus massive demographically advantage in africa till date. Simply africans are thankful formthe bantu stock of people because their was one time in africa where western medicine was amthing unheard of and africans often died in similar case like the european small pox and black plague. Whole populations were decimated and parmanently wiped out at times. People rellied on good genes. The robust resilient bantu offered the solution,to,these,desease,problems. This is the case till date.

You've got to be kidding wake up out of your delusional dream! Recently 5 million people slaughtered in the DRC and they are hunting down pygymies and eating their flesh because some people consider them to be non-human due to their short stature. Some Bantu routinely enslave and beat pygymies and have no qualms admitting it on video. Yeah we're all convinced the Bantu spread peacefully,just like Shaku Zulu united the the Zulu Kingdom in a peaceful manner not really. Oh and yeah the Rwandan massacre was a great example of brotherly love to uphold. There are plenty examples of man's inhumanity to man committed by all races.

Khoisan tribes of Southern Africa Carry Eurasian DNA
And they also have their own powerful form of ecstatic spirituality.

So, they are a pretty distinctive ethnic minority in Africa with some really naturally-sustainable & spiritual lifestyles.

It's a shame, but unfortunately they are now essentially being bullied out of existence by brute force there.

So Rigoberta Menchu of Guatemala (Mayan) won the prize in 1992 (in spite of having advocated armed resistance), and Mandela got it next.

There's another famous exception to the non-violence rule for the Peace Prize: Henry Kissinger, a former US Secretary of State who ordered the bombing of Cambodia during the Vietnam War. I have no idea why he was given the Peace Prize. His winning the prize makes a mockery of it.

South Africa's (And Botswana's, and Namibia's) leadership needs to develop more awareness of ethnic issues in their countries, especially regarding the San, and there needs to be political will to address those issues in a way that's in conformance with international law (the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples) and San self-determination. This doesn't seem to be on the radar of anyone in political power. Rather, it seems, that economic development via mining is the priority.
Well also Yasser Arafat, Shimon Peres and Yitzhak Rabin won the Nobel peace prize. Also Obama won it too.

I believe in South Africa and other parts near in the general region may be experiencing a cultural revival for the Khoisan ethnolinguistic group (as well as those that got tagged with the Coloured label during the apartheid era.)

This whole article even though touching, it is full of lies. Can you provide any sources on the genocide of the Khoikhoi by the Bantu people?
Also, I've realized whites in South Africa love lying about how the Zulus and other Bantu speaking people came to the South after the whites. That's a lie too. The Zulus were there for at least 2000 years before the whites showed up. The Zulus' ancestors are the ones that came from the North. The Zulu tribe was formed right there in the South. So, can I see an article on the murders? I know the Bantu and the Khoi got along. They even intermarried.
