The Dominance of the Afrikaners
By 1903346, Updated
In this storyboard I explain the racial dominance of the Afrikaners in South Africa.
We claim this land as ours now...so we're better
I declare, we should seperate ourselves in order to become both socially and economically stable
I like your style
South Africa became colonized by Dutch and English rulers around the 1700's . The English eventually became the ruling power in the 1900's and became known as the Afrikaners. These Afrikaners then set out a plan to have white dominated areas with racial seperation
Heyyy... You guys kinda need to leave or we will kill you
This group of Afrikaners had invented the idea of apartheid in order to gain control in the social and economic regions of South Africa in 1940.
Maybe...apartheid wasn't such a good idea...
While it may seem that their intention was to improve the situation of the country, the executed this through an unruly manner. They began in the late 1940's to instill racial discrimination including no non-white and white marriages and white only occupations.
The end of apartheid is here
Land acts were them imposed and separated thousands of families. These acts then forcibly removed black South Africans, who were then put into Bantustans (areas designated for the "non-whites") in order to sell their land to the white. During the time of these acts around 3.5 million people were removed from their homes and put into Bantustans.
After many years of Apartheid in affect, in 1976 police brutality broke out after a protest was held in 1976 and police open fired with guns and tear gas. This was given international attention and people realized that apartheid had not done what was promised. Apartheid was denounced and Apartheid was coming to an end.
In the late 1980's the laws of apartheid including interracial marriage and the former leader of the country stepped down. In the following years any laws related to apartheid has been abolished and as well as the Land acts. Finally, in 1994 when Nelson Mandela was elected president a new constitution was formed and marked the official end of apartheid.
