    How centuries of division built one of the most unequal countries on earth.

    For decades, South Africa was under apartheid: a series of laws that divided people by race. Then, in the 1990s, those laws were dismantled. But many of the barriers they created continue to divide South Africans by skin color - which in turn determines their quality of life, access to jobs, and wealth. Racial division was built into the fabric of cities throughout South Africa, and it still hasn't been uprooted.
    That's partly because, while apartheid was the culmination of South Africa's racial divisions, it wasn't the beginning of them. That story starts closer to the 1800s, when the British built a network of railroads that transformed the region's economy into one that excluded most Black people -- and then made that exclusion the law.

Just a fact check; by the time the Dutch colonists moved to the interior, slavery had been abolished. The indigenous populations have never been enslaved. The Dutch colonists themselves had a fair number of former Cape Colony slaves in their ranks and families. Sometimes the facts don't fit well with the intended narrative, but don't let that spoil a good tale....

Question: why dont our black leaders fix these issues? Fact. This is the state of any other multi racial country in the world. How do we change this? By putting aside differences and stop blaming whites, blacks colourds. Yes we cant forget apartheid but if we let videos like this recreate devision then how are we ever going to be "United" as it is in our anthem. The main reason we have racial divisions is because of our grudges. Let it go and work together.

White people with their generational wealth accumulated from centuries of looting, money enough to weather the incompetent ANC rule, say: we can't talk about race! It was ages ago! Black people with accumulated poverty, violently traumatised during apartheid and generational memory of dehumanised treatment at the hands of white people, ill served by an incompetent ANC government, say: when has it ever been fair? BTW, how many years have the DA had control of the Western Cape and city of Cape Town now? Why don't the DA fix these issues?

The area VOX showed is *not* a neighbourhood. Nor is it an administrative township. It's an *informal settlement.* Only about 10% of the population nationwide (internal & foreign migrants) stay in informal settlements. People that don't have housing. And so they set up shacks. It is extremely disingenuous of Vox to pretend that this is where the majority of South Africans stay.

You fuel racial hatred by deceptively selective reporting that distort the reality. Nguni tribes did not extend into the Western side of South Africa by the time the Europeans settled, most of that half (more like three-quarters) of the country in sparsely populated desert not suitable for cattle. There wasn't such a thing as "South Africa" before the Union of South in 1910, so the Nguni people have no claim to begin with. A lot of black migrants to Cape Town and the Western Cape in general are recent economic migrants. If anyone has a claim to being dispossessed, it is coloured community (ancestors of Europeans, the Khoi and Malay slaves) who are being pushed out by Nguni people mostly from the Eastern Cape.

Here in America the immigrant people were put into shantytowns which is why you still have little Italy and Chinatowns in New York City. Those second generation Italians and Irish became skilled laborers like brick layers and carpenters. The third generation went to college and became professionals. So there was upward mobility over generations. But not for blacks even to this day. Very few blacks are skilled tradesmen. There are more young blacks in college than in the trades. Hopefully college education will make for a better life for those but still I believe that the majority of blacks will stay poor and trapped in inner city neighborhoods. Even in the military which is known for technical schools produce very few black graduates. We have had over 20 years of affirmative action without any results. When I was in college I saw many blacks get into college only to drop out by the second year. Why is this happening? I don’t have an answer except we should have trade schools accepting more blacks.

Mandela was a trusted leader and an embodiment of the collective decision not to take revenge on white people, so that there was a largely peaceful transition of power in 1994. Critics say he set the country up for failure because he let economic power stay in white hands, that is a debate you'll have to deep dive into. My view, the white people of SA mistook this giving of olive branch by Mandela as the be all and end all, and all is absolved. But there had never been a proper reckoning of colonialism and apartheid, because by and large white people stayed away from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission process, so there was no proper healing and building of trust. White liberal party never won the trust of black voters, hence no effective political opposition, and ANC gets away with massive corruption. Mandela started the long relay race to transformation, but others failed to pick up the baton.

It happened in other countries already. And the resoults are not the best. Corrupt leaders appeared and used the money to build their own "empire". The people remained poor, while a small group got very rich. The same with the lands. Black oligarchs got them all, and the common people did not profit from them. You can't just give money and land to someone, because chances are that it will get into their heads and they will become the abusers of their own people instead of the previous ones. That can only work with a society that has experience with keeping it's leaders in bay, but unfortunately most African societies are not like that. As you can heard in this video, the only way out is education. You should give the opportunity, not the achnivement.

It is unfortunate that this video does not mention a reality that still existed when I lived there in the late 70's and early 80"s. While the rest is certainly history, one of the major triggers for apartheid and segregation was to suppress the inter-tribal violence that was so significant that different tribes had different buses, and different business buildings were served by one tribe but not another, and their staff hours were staggered so that they would not meet and fight on the streets while awaiting their buses. The home we occupied was a residence that had housed a number of German diplomats. Across the road was one occupied by the Japanese. Our gardeners would routinely be in conflict with theirs. If buses were late, or if they were late for the bus, it was not uncommon for them to come to work beaten (and be tended by our maid (who lived in)). It was plainly evident to us as kids when we'd be playing in the trees to see this violence play out on the streets - simple thuggery by one group over another, and while close to the bus stop they had safety in numbers, as they dispersed to the property compound, they'd be harassed. So this inter tribal violence was a very real problem apartheid dealt with, and I am certain saved lives.

@FleshRebellion not Pretoria, but I respect what you are saying about the migrant workers. They were the ones coming from the north, as Rhodesia was about to be what we would call a failed state today. And sure there is always someone pulling strings to foment violence. But the reality is that it was still what the regular people saw on the ground. The vast majority of expat south africans who have emigrated to Canada that I knew did so because of the violence - not violence of their making, but of the system they were born into, and even with regime change it did not end, because the truth of the matter is that the exploiters, whether white, black, or other, will continue to profit on exploitation. We can blame the corporations, or politicians, but ultimately it is cultural, and the culture clash, the tribalism of our social groups, is always at play, and some are just more crooked than the rest.

The video did a really bad job by completely ignoring the role of gold (in now Gauteng province) in fueling racial segregation, tearing social structures like families apart, by keeping labour costs extremely low and racially unfair hiring rules, reducing these men to survival beast mode (they had come to the cities in the first place because vast tracks of land was legally denied from them and reserved for white people, pushing them away from traditional social structures). I'm not even going to discuss Third Force which likely wasn't present in your anecdote in particular, but was an apartheid state tactic to fuel the racist black on black violence meme that you're spouting.

Does it have anything to do with intellect, IQ or ambition? Or are people not supposed to take responsibility for their own actions, and just spend their entire life blaming others as a convenient excuse?

Seems a lot more normal than forcing multiculturalism on towns and cities that don't need nor want it. Human beings are tribalisitc by nature.

@Frozen Utility Israel is a literal ethnostate. you need genetic testing to gain citizenship. Them never becoming a minority in their own country is enshrined into law with the nation state law.

Agreed. Nobody would do this to any other groups. You don't see people coming down on Jews and Gypsies for not integrating with each other or how do we make Chinatowns and Indian reservations integrate together. It's only with Blacks and Whites where these self righteous do gooders are always busy bodying themselves trying to force integration where it's not wanted.
