How was apartheid practiced in South Africa

Q- How was ‘apartheid’ practiced in South Africa?

Answer- In South Africa all the non-white people were treated as inferior and were deprived of their right to vote. As the natives of South Africa were the blacks and people of mixed races were coloured and the people who migrated from Indian ‘the Indians’. 

The system of Apartheid divided the people and labeled them on the basis of their skin colour. These blacks were forbidden from living in white areas.

They could work in white areas only if they had a permit. They blacks could not visit the churches where the whites worshipped. Trains, buses, hotels, schools, taxis, hospitals, colleges, libraries, cinema halls, beaches, swimming pools, public toilets were separate from white and blacks.

In this way ‘apartheid’ was practiced in South Africa.
