Apartheid was a social philosophy which enforced racial, social, and economic segregation on the people of South Africa. The term Apartheid comes from the Afrikaans word meaning 'separation'. It was introduced by by DF Malan's Herenigde Nasionale Party (HNP - 'Reunited National Party') in 1948 and lasted until the end of FW De Klerk's government in 1994.
Segregation meant that Whites (or Europeans) were given separate (and usually better) facilities than non-Whites (Coloureds, Indians, and Blacks).
