South Africa Paper Discrimination against nonwhites was inherent in South African society from the earliest days Since the British settled in South Africa in 1795 there has been social economic and political exclusion being ruled by whites despite the fact that whites held about 10 of the population Msft Encarta Segregation and inequality between whites and other races had existed as a matter of custom and practice but after 1948 these practices were made into laws that would not be changed easily These new laws marked the start of apartheid as the countrys official policy as well as the start of the National Partys reign of power The National Party stressed white supremacy and promoted separated development This separated development entitled that the races be segregated moving nonwhites out of urban areas into the outskirts of city into so-called home lands or bantustans with people of their own race They also implemented more laws that determined what jobs nonwhites could get what type of education they could receive who they could come into contact with the facilities they could use what race they could marry and the positions they could hold in politics none The National Party under the control of Hendrik Verwoerd further alienated nonwhite citizens by passing a law that made them citizens of their own bantustans not citizens of South Africa The National Party rationalized saying that this law gave blacks an opportunity to participate in a political process within the bantustans However their real motives were get out of paying welfare to millions of nonwhites without losing the benefits of an endless supply of cheap labor The entire ethnic population was in total disagreement with the South African governments attempt to eliminate their rights While the start of apartheid was not a memorable moment in South Africas history it was a major factor in shaping the nation Many political parties and organizations today were formed through the protest of apartheid
