if you'll take note, the white s. africans make a distinction between mixed raced blacks (what they call colored) and non-mixed blacks...?

in america white have historically made no difference, in fact if you had any demonstrable quantity of black blood you were black (the infamous 1 drop rule)...



In South Africa mixed race people (coloureds) were on a different class level than black South Africans during the Apartheid era. They had schools were they learned Afrikaaners,could go to coloured and indian place around town shops,business.Black South Africans didn't have any options. Afrikaaners is a european language with African elements. If you didn't speak or learn in Afrikaaners during the Apartheid era you were treated as a second or third class citizen in South Africa.

Slavery was different, sexual relationship between slave and slave masters was somewhat common,but it was also against the law. Probably One of the reasons for the one drop rule,another reason would be to give slaves an inferior mind complex basically saying(you people are no were near close to Europeans).Brain washing.
