It is foretold! The torrential flow of inexorable destiny!
21. BOERS and Hottentots
QUOTE 1: That the Hottentots were treated with great cruelty by many of the old colonists few will be prepared to deny, outrage begat outrage, and atrocity atrocity, but on the other hand many abhorred the treatment which these miserable people received, and did what was in their power to ameliorate the condition of compulsory servitude to which all those who lived within the pale of the law were reduced.
The state of unrest which ensued from the vain endeavours of the vanquished Hottentots to regain a portion of their cherished cattle, caused the governor Goske to issue in 1675, three years after their defeat, orders that every male of the tribe who fell into the hands of the Dutch was to be destroyed.
END OF QUOTEs
The Hottentots are not mentioned as Bushmen, but something quite near to them, I think. Boer attitude towards them was also equally cruel.
