apartheid at English => English (The Britannica Concise) Of Explained:

(Afrikaans: "apartness" or "separateness") Policy of segregation and political and economic discrimination against non-European groups in S. Africa. The term was first used as the name of the official policy of the National Party in 1948, though racial segregation, sanctioned by law, was already widely practiced. The Group Areas Act of 1950 established residential and business sections in urban areas for each race and strengthened the existing "pass" laws, which required nonwhites to carry identification papers. Other laws forbade most social contacts between the races, authorized segregated public facilities, established separate educational standards, restricted each race to certain types of jobs, curtailed nonwhite labor unions, denied nonwhite participation in the national government, and established various black African "homelands," partly self-governing units that were nevertheless politically and economically dependent on S. Africa. Apartheid was always subject to internal criticism, and led to many violent protests, strikes, and acts of sabotage; it also received international censure. In 1990-91 most apartheid legislation was repealed, though segregation remains deeply entrenched in S. African society. See also African National Congress, racism.
