Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Apartheid Delanie DavisElizabeth Koegelp.7 2/19/15 Past Present n; a policy or system of segregation or discrimination on grounds of race After the end of apartheid South Africa became a democracy. However this democracy is very one partied towards the ANC. With one party having all the control many people, regardless of their race had issues with the government. Even though the racism is gone, the problems with the government continue with unemployment and poverty. This happens because there is very low quality education being taught to young black(and some white) students which doesnt give them the opportunity to get good jobs. This leads them to a life a crime, which ends with poverty and unemployment, creating a full circle effect. Thereis currently 7 million people in South Africa that are unemployed. The graph below shows how unemployment has actually been increasing since apartheid, not decreasing, even though its supposedto be a better government.
