In South Africa, the white men's system of Apartheid which means "separateness" or "segregation" - regulates the lives of the black majority of South Africans and is designed to keep them in a state of perpetual inferiority. Many people in the world find Apartheid morally objectionable and many more believe that South Africa’s policies constitute a serious threat to international harmony.
