South Africa: Apartheid

Sotho on Mzansi Afrika tackles racism in post apartheid South Africa and racists assumptions about Black people's contribution to history and society....”You didn't steal our brick-making techniques, you nicked the damned bricks themselves. Your arguments don't seem in the least like colonialist arguments, they are the very definition of colonialist arguments. History says the African was enslaved abroad and on his native content by those wielding more brutal weapons. Of course you built the universities, if by “you” you mean the one who was in power then. Who else could have built them? Oliver Tambo in Tanzania?”
