History Summarized: South Africa

367 592 Vizionare

In the past few centuries, few corners of the African Continent were quite as busy as the south. It's a winding river from the first migrations and waves of colonists in the Cape Colonies to the Rainbow Nation we know today, so let's dive in and see how it all played out!
SOURCES & Further Reading for Black History Month:
- "The African Experience From 'Lucy' to Mandela" From the Great Courses Plus, lectures 15-18 "South Africa: The Dutch Cape Colony & The Zulu Kingdom & Frontier and Unification & Diamonds and Gold", 26 "Segregation and Apartheid in South Africa", and 32 "The South African Miracle"
- "Born A Crime" by Trevor Noah: bookshop.org/books/born-a-crime-stories-from-a-south-african-childhood/9780399588198
- Home Team History is a ROlabel channel covering all corners of the African continent. They have several videos about Southern Africa, such as "A History of Stone Architecture in Southern Africa" (rolabel.info/door/lItludmUes9_aYo/video.html) and "Southern Africa: The Birthplace of Iron Mining" (rolabel.info/door/xm95sZSwidStoYY/video.html), and "A history of the Xhosa People" (rolabel.info/door/xa6SzLTKkdB3qqQ/video.html)
- Lastly, looking to modern times, it's important to recognize how the COVID crisis has exacerbated massive preexisting disparities between healthcare for Black and minority communities and that of white Americans. It's not enough to just acknowledge history, we all have a responsibility to understand modern problems and work on solutions.

  • Buen video, no usaron las mismas fronteras y puntos de control similar en cada era? Debió ser coincidencia y geografía, junto los tipos de cambio de cada época, la importación de materiales, máquinas, creación de fábricas y explotación de suelo que siguen consecuencias a la fecha, ya ni hablar de los temas de impuestos de cada era, junto como fue con las guerras mundiales, sus misioneros y si hubo grandes lluvias con desastres naturales luego de suelo reblandesido por mineras y más cosas feas, en fin falta ver que intereses se movieron junto control de población y que nivel educativo les permitían tener, saludos.

  • This was mostly accurate, but some misinformation about the apartheid era. And we have something now called BEE (black economic empowerment, were if you want to trade with any big corporations you have to be 62% black owned, so some people that aren’t black gets taken out of positions and then replaced by a black person even if they aren’t capable of doing the job...

  • Missing information, ANC used terrorism to force the national party, many of my famiky died due to bombs being planted by ANC terrorists, more specifically the refered Nelson Mandela was sent to prison because he killed people, secondly, Apartheid was terrible, but not to only blacm people to everyone, little know fact is that the country, much the same as now was controlled by a few elites luke the Broederbond which noticeably git fame during WW2. So no, not every white person benifitted from itinfact we hated apartheid but the New goverment is reversed Apartheid witj BEE and BBBEEE.

Also South Africa is a failing state with the Third largest SA Party singing and chanting about "Killing all the Whites." South Africa still has Systemic Racism. There is extreme discrimination against Whites. There is so much info you left out, proving your ideological bent.

Dont even get me started on the products they deliver with the millions they get. They couldn't upkeep the infrastucture. The roads and buildings are going to shit. The only bad part about apartheid was the rasicm. The entire africa would have lived in tribes if it was never discovered.
