Apartheid means ‘apart-hood’ or ‘the state of being apart’ and was the system of racial inequality, segregation and discrimination in South Africa that was started after World War II. It was enforced by the laws of the South African National Party governments from 1948 to 1994. These white government officials ruled in the nation of South Africa which had a majority of black people. Their laws cut the rights of all black citizens so that they were not equal to other citizens in the country.
