obviously # 2 is a racist bastard who thinks being white entitles him to whatever he wants. apartheid was really a system of government designed by the Nationalist party to keep the white minority of South Africa in power. It was an unjust system that dehumanized millions of blacks just because some Afrikaners were scared of being a minority. Apartheid was abolished in 1994 and since then South Africa has had its share of social problems but racial equality is becoming more and more prominent.
