Thank you. Even though you won the war you are really generous.
We will help build farms and give you money, as long as we have no hard feelings.
I still don't like how the white people come here and make everything segregated!
I know! It's not fair for us.
We want rights!
Segregation ends now!
We Want FREEDOM!
After the South African war, the British wanted to keep peace with the Boers so the promised to help rebuild farms, provide funds, and let them speak their own lanuguege in their schools. The british combined the three Boer cononies and Cape colony to make the Union of South Africa.
You do not protest against our system!
The British created anew constitution that only allowed whites to vote. An apartheid was created to seperate people and for the whites to have complete control and power over South Africa. This caused racial segragation and unfairness for anyone who wasn't white.
I believe we should gather up all the leaders to improve and make South Africa better!
An orginaization called ANC stood up to the whites and demanded change. The held peacfull marces and protest against the apartheid. They didn't beleive in the four classes you were put in by your race and skin color. The wanted to change the laws that made them less equall to whites.
While peacfully protesting, the goverment did not like how they tried to stand up aginst them. The police shot into crowdes of people and killed them. The arrested Nelson Mandela and other leades to a life time sentence in prison.
F. W. de Klerk became the president in South Africa in 1989. He set Mandela free and legalized illegal organizations such as the ANC. In 1994, an all race election was held and Nelson Mandela was elected president. He faced many struggles such as disease and poverty. He then retired in 1999 from his presidency.
