Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  Samuel Murray: "di k" could mean anything, but the tone of the phrase may also suggest "die kaffer" (the nigger).

  -> Thanks, I did not want to suggest it... You know that you are no longer allowed to use that word in SA...

agree  Johan Venter: The k could also refer to a profanity sometimes used in such arrogant statements, which has nothing to do with skin colour
5 hrs
  -> Thanks. A bull gets excited when it sees red...
