Many white people in South Africa did NOT support apartheid. This was a very nasty political decision made by the Nationalist Party while in government.

Apartheid is the name for a collection of laws and policies enacted by the South African government, that stipulated a legal distinction between whites ("Europeans") and non-whites ("Black" or "Non-European"). This was due to a largely held white supremacist stance within the then ruling government, the National Party (Nasionale Party in Afrikaans). The most notable supporter of Apartheid was H. F. Verwoerd, also known as the Architect of Apartheid, who instituted the Bantu Education Act, knowing that poorly educated black people would pose a diminished threat to the white supremacist rule.

According to a survey from October 1995 thru October 2002, one of the effects of apartheid changed the earning and spending power in South Africa. African-households were the poorest, while white households were more affluent monetarily.

Nelson Mandela lived in South Africa when apartheid was the order of the day. He spent much of his adult life in jail fighting it using terrorism. Eventually, he and his party were successful, and the apartheid policies of the ruling white South Africans was abolished. Mandela went on to become his country's first black Prime Minister.

Apartheid was a social policy or racial segregation involving political, economic and legal discrimination against non-white people in South Africa

Black homelands, white homelands and Bantu homeland were the three homelands in South Africa during the apartheid.

Non-whites were not allowed to own expensive or luxury items during Apartheid. They also were not allowed to use the same restrooms, restaurants, or even beaches as their white counterparts.

Apartheid was a law that applied to both black and white people, it was designed to separate the races and both white and black people could be prosecuted for breaking it. During white minority rule, under apartheid, the thing that was denied the black majority was one man/woman vote democracy (the ability to make the laws that govern you).
