Apartheid which means being apart, segregation based on skin color was it's strongest point in order to keep indigenous South Africans mistreated and politically powerless! During Apartheid, people were meant to live only within their 'racial', 'ethnic' groups, in order to keep classes separated to ensure European descendants to stay in power. physical, psychological damage was made in the process. Apartheid was similar to Nazism.
