The word apartheid comes in two forms, one being the system of racial segregation inSouthAfrica, and the other form is the form that only those who were affected by apartheid can relate to, the deeper, truer, more horrifying, saddening and realistic form. The apartheid era truly began when white South Africans went to the polls to vote. Although the United Party and National Party were extremely close, the National party won. Since they won, they gained more seats and slowly began to eliminate the black’s involvement with the political system. With the National Party in power, they made black South African life miserable which continues to exist inSouth Africa’s society today. ToVIEW DOCUMENT

His beliefs landed him in prison for twenty-seven years, almost three decades. In doing so, he became the face of the apartheid movement both in his country and around the world. When released from prison in 1990, he continued to honor his commitment to fight for justice and equality for all people inSouthAfrica. In 1994, Nelson Mandela was elected to become the first black president of SouthAfrica and formed a government that represented the people of SouthAfrica.

Segregation is a concept as old as time, and it is not unique to the United States.
SouthAfrica still suffers from the effects of an organized and government mandated
system of segregation called apartheid that lasted for over a quarter of a century.
Apartheid, literally translated from Afrikaans, means apartness (Mandela 40). It is
defined as a policy of racial segregation and “political and economic discrimination
against non-European groups in the Republic of SouthAfrica” (“Apartheid”). According
to Robin Cohen, South African apartheid was based on four basic premises: “white

Origins of Apartheid
In the seventeenth century, SouthAfrica was colonized by Dutch and British imperialists. In response to British domination, Dutch settlers made two colonies: The Republic of the Orange Free State and Transvaal. Dutch descendants became known as “Afrikaners” or “Boers.” In the early 1900s, Boers discovered diamonds on their land. This led to a Britain invasion and sparked the Second Boer War, which lasted three years. This was the first modern war to see concentration camps; they were used successfully to break the will of Afrikaner guerilla forces by detaining their families. British forces won the war, converting the two Boer states into colonies who wereVIEW DOCUMENT

Before attempting any overview of xenophobic attacks, it is essential to clarify what we mean by the term and this is not a straightforward task.

A way that they did this was by imprisoning of exiling many black leaders. The ANC and PAC were also banned and the government made sure that blacks were policed closely and harshly.

The term apartheid (from the Afrikaans word for "apartness") was coined in the 1930s and used as a political slogan of the National Party in the early 1940s, but the policy itself extends back to the beginning of white settlement inSouthAfricain 1652. After the primarily Afrikaner Nationalists came to power in 1948, the social custom of apartheid was systematized under law. The apartheid was a social and political segregation of the white rulers from the black locals of SouthAfrica.

The question, however, is not whether or not change drives us forward or backward; change obviously can only move forward. The question is whether change drives us upward or downward, or even both. In the case of SouthAfrica immediately post-Apartheid, there can be no denying that the force of change propelled the nation forward. Whether change was driving SouthAfrica upward or downward, though, depended largely on the race of whom you were asking.

In the months following, many other homosexual men became infected with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), which caused the people of SouthAfrica to consider AIDS a disease that solely infected homosexuals. Sadly, this misperception created stigma around becoming infected with HIV.

In a society filled with crime, violence, and corruption prisons are overflowing and imprisonment often creates more hardened criminals, rather than creating rehabilitated persons.
