Coloured Mentality created much needed conversations when it first started last year, from both media and the public on social media. The show consisted of four episodes. Issues addressed in the episodes were: "What is a Coloured?," "Is Afrikaans a White Language?," "Are Coloured People Black?" and "What is Coloured Culture?"

The series was started by Kelly Eve Koopman and Sarah Summers , two young women who were on a quest to find out more about their heritage and to interrogate being Coloured in present day South Africa.

The term "Coloured" is a creation of the South African apartheid government. The idea was to classify different race groups and place them in different locations in what is known as the Group Areas Act.

South Africans are divided about the use of the term in present day South Africa, with some saying it enforces apartheid laws and divides people of color. Some believe in embracing the term as it speaks to a group of people that have a unique lived experience.
