SA: Apartheid

Mzansi Afrika wonders how apartheid South Africa “dealt” with Black foreigners…..? “Did a black African from Swaziland, Lesotho, Senegal or Mali have to carry a pass? I suppose not, but one never knows. Were these foreigners treated in the same way as black South Africans were? If so, how about African Americans — how were they treated? And if not, where was the line and on what basis was it drawn? Passport? Language? Something else”?
