The baboons thing may be a reference to an offencive nickname given to the Afrikanners and the decendants of the boers, by the anglo-saxon population. I believe it refers to the colour of the glutious maximus of said primate... the baboons, not the Afrikaaners

I don't know about that. I'm from South Africa, and no one dares to say the word baboon, because South Africans see it as an offensive term for black people.
