arptheid really bro? you too funny lol
Yeah, apartheid means ‘separateness’!
Let’s translate all words I mentioned in my video!
- Apartheid = Separateness
- Nassau = The Dutch royal family - Van Oranje-Nassau.
- Staten Island (or Staten IJland) = States Island - refering to the Dutch parliament, de Staten-Generaal (States General).
- Van De(r) = From the - part of a Dutch lastname, just like mine ‘Van Der Vegte’, that tells where they’re from.
really? I had no idea. I just arptheid was always an english word, till you explained this to me. As for the other words, I"m surprised how many of these words look familiar. I’m sort of surprised so few countries speak dutch outside the netherlands and europe considering their wide influence in the americas
The Constitution of the United States of America even has a Dutch version which was written during the same time as the English one! It was even considered to make Dutch an official language in the US back in the day. Martin van Buren was the first President who was born is the US yet his first language was Dutch. The US has so many Dutch influences, even the donut is Dutch! The word ‘boss’ derives from the Dutch word ‘baas’ and Santa Claus’ origins started in The Netherlands as well, with the now controversial ‘Sinterklaas’!
wow i didn’t even know this. Guess you learn something new every day
