‘We are Zulu and not India’ - Little girl tells mom she’s not Indian [watch]

A video of a little Indian girl who identifies herself Zulu rather than Indian has gone viral. 

A SMALL INDIAN FEMALE CLAIMS TO BE FROM ZULU 

Eva Gace Philip, a young girl of four, has gone viral on TikTok with videos in which she speaks IsiZulu and even claims to be a Zulu. 

The video of Eva speaking IsiZulu to her mother went viral and has been viewed more than 1.7 million times. For her age, she speaks fairly well in IsiZulu, with the ability to welcome, introduce herself, and say she is leaving for school. 

Little Eva explains to her mother that not everyone in the family is Indian in another video. 

She tells her mom that they "do not all speak Indian" at home. 

We are Zulus, she tells her mother when she wonders what they are. 

NETIZENS REACT TO "SHE DOESN'T SEE COLOR" 

The TikTok comments area is filled with supportive comments for videos of the preschool. Numerous online viewers found it remarkable that she did not pay attention to her audience's skin tone or ethnicity; others requested that she educate them IsiZulu, which she does in yet another video. They even gave little Eva an IsiZulu name. 

She is my Zulu queen," Gugulethu Molapo declared. I'm sure the Department of Home Affairs can set something up.

Guys! She is a male of unknown race. To her, being Indian means being born in India. She is, of course, Zulu, as her home province of Kwazulu (Remember shes only 4) Tags: #fyp #tiktoksa #funny #funnyvideos #foryou #durban #southafrica #zulu #durban #kwazulu #
