Generally speaking that's very correct.
Africaans were, and are, a very small minority. Even within the white population of South Africa. Power was to be reserved for the White Africaans only. Or so my understanding of it works. I may be wrong.
Whites of British decent were considered second class, along with colored (their definition, not mine.)...with the black majority little better than slaves or animals in the eyes of many Africaans.
