I am sitting with a dilemma. How do you refer to groups without making reference to race?
Let me explain. I am doing research on the transfer of learning and have found that there are the same tendency in certain areas. The areas that I am referring to is
AREA 1: Cape Town, Rondebosch, Mowbray, Plumstead
AREA 2: Mitchells Plain, Hanover Park, Athlone
AREA 3: Kayelitsha, Gugulethu, Langa, Nyanga.
I am not allowed to refer to a, for example, ‘traditionally coloured area’, because then I am referring to race. I am also not allowed to use the terminology ‘previously disadvantaged areas’ and ‘previously more disadvantaged areas’.
I will appreciate any recommendations.
