  1. After the National Party gained power in South Africa in 1948, its all-white government immediately began enforcing existing policies of racial segregation under a system of legislation that it called apartheid. Under apartheid, nonwhite South Africans (a majority of the population) would be forced to live in separate areas from whites and use separate public facilities, and contact between the two groups would be limited. Despite strong and consistent opposition to apartheid within and outside of South Africa, its laws remained in effect for the better part of 50 years. In 1991, the government of President F.W. de Klerk began to repeal most of the legislation that provided the basis for apartheid. Racial segregation and white supremacy had become central aspects of South African policy long before apartheid began. The controversial 1913 Land Act, passed three years after South Africa gained its independence, marked the beginning of territorial segregation by forcing black Africans to live in reserves and making it illegal for them to work as sharecroppers. Opponents of the Land Act formed the South African National Native Congress, which would become the African National Congress (ANC).

  2. Apartheid; a law in which the government banned marriages between whites and people of other races. They also banned sexual relationships between the blacks and the whites. All of this happened by 1950. Even though the whites were a minority back then, they still PASSED LAWS which stated that non-whites should carry documents establishing their presents in restricted area. The government also established separate public facilities for whites and non-whites. This limited the contact of both races.

  3. Apartheid was a system of racial segregation enforced through legislation by the National Party governments; the ruling party from 1948 to 1994 in South Africa. This was under the rights, associations, and movements of the majority of black inhabitants to be restricted upon. It began to develop after the star of World War I by the Afrikaner-dominated National Party. Nowadays, the term Apartheid is used in context for forms of systematic segregation, created by state powers in a country against social and civil rights for a particular group of citizens. (Developed through prejudice)

  4. In 1948, after the the National Party gained power in South Africa a system of legislation called apartheid came into play. This was created by the all white government of the country that was beginning to enforce policies of racial segregation. Apartheid was the system that stated nonwhite South Africans would be forced to live in separate areas from whites and had to use separate public facilities. This law caused much resistance and violence amongst the people. Around the 1950’s citizens began to protest when the government began to imprison anti-apartheid leaders. It wasn’t until the year of 1991 that apartheid laws were finally abolished.

  5. South Africa is a country rich with natural resources and fertile farmlands, and pleasant weather. South Africa was colonized in the 27th century by the English and Dutch. the apartheid was invented as a way to maintain white domination. Laws were passed and they touched every aspect of life. Marriage between whites and non-whites was banned, and most jobs were “white only.”

  6. Apartheid, was a system of racial segregation in South Africa enforce through legislation by the NP governments. Apartheid, was developed after World War II by the Afrikaner-dominated National Party and Broederbond organizations and was practiced in South West Africa. By extension, the term is presently used for forms of systematic segregation, which was established by the state authority in a country, against the social and civil rights of a certain group of citizens, due to ethnic prejudices. Racial segregation in South Africa began in colonial times under Dutch East India rule, until 1795, when the British took over the Cape of Good Hope. Apartheid as an officially structured policy, was introduced after the general election of 1948. Legislation classified inhabitants into four racial groups; black, white, colored, and Indian.

  7. Apartheid was a system of racial segregation in South Africa. It was developed after World War 2. It segregated people into 4 groups. They were black, white, coloured, and indian. It ended in 1994 after elections under the African National Congress.

  8. Apartheid is the state of being parted. it was a system of racial segregation in South America. From 1960 to 1983, 3.5 million non-white South Africans were removed from their homes, and forced into segregated neighbourhoods, in one of the largest mass removals in modern history.[8] Non-white political representation was abolished in 1970, and starting in that year black people were deprived of their citizenship, legally becoming citizens of one of ten tribally based self-governing homelands called bantustans, four of which became nominally independent states. The government segregated education, medical care, beaches, and other public services, and provided black people with services that were often inferior to those of white people. I believe it was unfair for non-white South Africans to be removed because these people had families to take care of and I believe that they would want there families to live in a safe and friendly environment where they don’t have to feel ashamed about not being a white person and feeling seperated from he rest of the world. it was a simple form of racism but it has big effects on communities in South Africa and how people felt living there.
