Book chapter

What colour is the South African Rainbow? The ANC's racial transformation.

P. 281-320.

This article presents the latest developements in the racial policy of the South African ruling party, the African National Congress (ANC). The ANC which originally proclaimed non-racilaism as its goal has in practice been pursuing strictly racial agenda since coming to power in 1994. While the constitution of South Africa proclaims full equlity of representatives of different racial groups, in practice minorities are subject to discrimination in promotions and opportunities, denied the right to develop their business independently and often devoid right to be educated in their mother tongue. This policy when applied to business, both private and state, stifles the developemnt of the coutry and goes against the interests of the black majority. But the ANC continues this policy regardless.
