South Africa has overcome quite a lot over the course of the country’s history. Following the defeat of the Boers in the Anglo-Boer or South African war (1899-1902), the Union of South Africa was created as a dominion of the British Empires. The dominion came to an end on May 31st, 1961 as the consequence of a 1960 referendum, which legitimized the country becoming a sovereign state named Republic of South Africa. The country adopted a Republican constitution. From 1948-1994, South African politics were ruled by Afrikaner nationalists. Racial segregation and white minority rule also known as apartheid was created in 1948 under British rule. On

Extra-Legal Violence: A Comparative Exploration of South
Africa and The United States Usage During the Jim Crow Era
The inherent violence of race relations during the long nineteenth century between 1877 and 1919 of the United States (most notably the geographic South) and South Africa remain iconic expressions of White supremacy. Both countries generated appalling levels of physical violence against Black people, yet that violence manifested itself in quite different ways. The United States witnessed over 4000 state-sanctioned lynchings while South Africa produced not

as westernization and globalization within a South African context has changed the way in which Diwali is celebrated. While it is praised as a five-day occasion in most overwhelmingly Hindu countries, in South Africa it is normally celebrated more than two days. Day one is generally celebrated by those South African Indians who have south-Indian family line (and call the festival Deepavali), while day two is commended by South African Indians who have north-Indian lineage (who call the festival Diwali). Be that as it may, since the festival is certifiably not a public holiday in South Africa, most Hindus in the nation take a solitary day off work or school - out of accommodation - to

What Is Human Development?
Human development refers to the process of enriching the lives of people, as opposed to the economy in which these people live. (United Nations, 1990) Human development is measured using the Human Development Index (HDI). The HDI is based on three elements, namely the health, education, and income of people. The HDI is used to determine whether or not a country is developing or developed, based on these 3 aspects. (STUDY GUIDE – REFERENCIING????)
In order to fully illustrate the HDI, this essay will look at the HDI ranking for South Africa in 2011 and again in 2015, and thus compare the scores, and discuss the changes based on the elements that the HDI is measured

Fossils of warm weather plants and animals have been found across continents and in the colder regions of our globe.
Fossils of the same species have been found on the coastlines of continents separated by an ocean.
As he pondered this, he put the fossil information together with his observation that the Atlantic coasts of South America and Africa appeared to fit together as if it were a puzzle. He wondered if the continents had been joined together at one time. Wegener began to look for supporting evidence for this idea.

Ethos refers to values or characters of a person or gropu of people. The Bill of Rights in the South African Constitution is celebrated globally for its visionary aspects concerning human life.

One of the most intriguing, and publicized events of racism in the past century has been the

Because of seasonal rains farther south in Africa, the Nile overflowed its banks in Egypt every year. When the floodwaters receded, a rich black soil covered the floodplain. This natural phenomenon and its effects on the environment enabled the ancient Egyptians to develop a successful economy based on agriculture.Other natural factors combined to give rise to a great civilization in the Nile region.

Corporal Punishment is defined as a use of physical force causing pains as a means of discipline. It has since been removed from schools in South Africa. In this essay, I will explore the for and against of implementing corporal punishment within education in South Africa. I am in support of not bringing corporal punishment back in South African education.
According to South African Schools Act, 1996 (Act No. 84 of 1996) in Chapter 2 section 10 says that, “no person may administer corporal punishment at a school to a learner”, it also goes to say that “any person who contravenes subsection (1) is guilty of an offence and liable on conviction to a sentence which can imposed for assault”.

This became known as Piltdown Man and was one of the biggest hoaxes of all time. It was essentially just a modern skull with an ape's jaw attached to it. This hoax lasted into the 1950's and gave a lot of clout to the story that humans had evolved in Europe. However, while this was happening, while Europe was looking like it truly was the place of mans birth, Raymond Dart made an amazing find in South Africa.

But the Leakeys thought their find different enough to constitute a new category of hominids, and called it Zinjanthropus boisei.

Racist Modes of Representation in J.M Coetzee's Novel DisgraceIdeology, a term first introduced by Louis Althusser, refers to a governing system of values and beliefs that favors a certain group of people and enables them to manipulate people subordinate to them. Through the view of colonies, ideology helps colonizers construct inferior identities for the colonized and compartmentalize the latter for their own pleasure. As a result, the racial, gender, and sexual oppression tends to be internalized and accepted as true. Even though laws are simple to rewrite, racist modes of representation are actually much harder to change. Disgrace by J.M. Coetzee, through stereotypes of South Africa as

The new leadership style adopted after this incorporated the neoliberal approach by using the “strength and efficiency of the South African corporate sector and the international finance institutions which managed to influence the ANC during the transition from Apartheid to post-Apartheid” Bakken (2014).

the perfect replacement for the fading indentured servants. As more plantations became populated with African slaves, racism against blacks intensified. Blacks in Africa were frequently associated with barbarous behavior and sexual promiscuity. Some even associated blacks simply with pure evil. From a racist perspective, the enslavement of Africans for economic success seemed justified without question.Slavery was the perfect solution for plantation owners who needed large amounts of labor to run their plantation. As the indentured servant population decreased, it is unlikely that the southern colonies would have survived without the institution. Clearly, slavery held great importance in contributing to the economic growth of the south.

Justice and its implications on South Africa’s education system.
In South Africa, there is a huge difference in urban schools and rural schools as urban schools have better resources at hand to teach effectively and the learning environment is better while poor schools aren’t able to afford much resources to be able to teach children effectively. This is why there is a huge need for social justice within the context of education and this is mainly through the notion of distributive justice, S. Pendelbury and P.
