  7. Tommy M and Alvaro says:

    1- He was the leader of the black people, he also was the founder of an organization. In this organization, he used the apartheid system, this had a psychological effects to the black people, because the black said that were inferior than the white people. After this, he was banned by the government. This didn’t help him.

    2. The bantu was the apartheid regime where the black people were. This regime was using the Bantu Language, that`s why its called “Bantu”. The people that spoke the Bantu language originated 4,000 years ago.

    3- The thing that called my attention was that he suffered to protect the black people in South Africa.


    1- This consists that in that time, laws were created that separated racial groups. This meant racial discrimination. Sometimes the people could not marry. For example, a black man and a white woman.

    – New laws were created against the different racies.
    – There were people that agreed with this laws and some others not. They fought for it.
    – The white people had more access to things than the black people.

    3- “White persons only” In this warning sign said that, only white people were allowed to enter that place.

    4- For us, this was wrong because all of us have the same caracterisics. They didn`t have to separe the black people from the white people. This was racial discrimination.

    populations in Africa.

    3-That he was the first president of the SASO.

    4-It consist in stop racism and making black people also important.

    a) Separation, the made black people stay away from white people
    b) They couldn’t get married with wite people.
    c) There were jobs that were only for white people

    6- There is a photo of a sing that says “white people only” because black people had to be outorised to go to a place.

    7- I am definitely don’t agree with this because black people have to be able to go where they want.
