Click here to watch the full lecture Apartheid simply means 'separateness'. An Act was introduced in South Africa in 1948 that decreed that from then on, blacks would be 'separated' from whites. The Act, in fact, gave favour and supremacy to whites. As a result, strict segregation orders were enforced; forbidding blacks access to the same rights, social and educational provision and public places as whites. Many homes of blacks were confiscated and given to whites; blacks were forced to live in extremely poor conditions. They had no voice and if they did protest, they were dealt with very violently. The white dominated 'Dutch Reformed Church' supported apartheid, arguing from the Bible that: *South Africa's Apartheid laws were God's will. *Races should be kept apart. *Whites should have better opportunities as they heed God's 'favour'. *Mixed marriages and relationships are discouraged so races remained 'pure'. *God is the 'Great Divider'. Genesis 1 supports this, in that, God divides everything into separate categories - white is divided from black and meant to be separate.
