A novel that puts race classification on trial. The concepts of genetics and anthropology, social studies and statistics are personified and called to the witness stand to testify – and are cross-examined – about South African attitudes towards race. Snyman is also called on to explain his beliefs.


School teacher Glen Snyman, the founder and leader of the organisation People Against Race Classification, was charged with fraud for identifying as "African" instead of "Coloured" when applying for a teaching post.
