Brutal racism: imprisonment, police killings and murder (e.g. confiscation of property and the forced removal of millions of blacks ) Apartheid:  Apartheid Other examples of the laws -- Population Registration Act; Group Areas Act; The Bantu Authorities Act (or Homeland Act) Passes: Black men and women, or even people who appeared to possibly be black, were required by law to carry passes at all times stating who they were and why they belonged in a certain area. Consequences: Shantytown, Lack of Resources and Tsosti :  Consequences: Shantytown, Lack of Resources and Tsosti E. g. Sophiatown, Soweto near Johannesburg In crowded, often unsanitary, and potentially dehumanizing living conditions; Materials used for the houses-- corrugated tin, newspaper, cardboard boxes, and whatever else could be found to keep out wind and rain. 'Most of the yards had a single lavatory and one tap which were shared by 150 to 200 residents' (Mattera, p. 50). Education: 1938 -- fewer than one-third of the country's black school-aged children were actually enrolled in schools. Tsotsi – the many black youths who turned to street hustling (theft or murder).

Tsotsi, -fear and shame. Fear :  Fear ''There is fear in the land. And fear in the hearts of all who live there. And fear puts an end to understanding and the need to understand. So how shall we fashion such a land when there is fear in the heart? The white man will put more locks on his door and get a fine fierce dog, but the beauty of the trees and of the stars, these things we shall forego. 'Cry, the beloved country, for the unborn child that is the inheritor of our fear. Let him not love the earth too deeply. Let him not be too moved when the birds of his land are singing, nor give too much of his heart to a mountain or a valley. For fear will rob him of all if his gives too much. Yes cry, cry, the beloved country.'.' Rev Stephen Kumalo’s Experience:  Rev Stephen Kumalo’s Experience Accepts 'the truth' (vs. John) ; no need for a lawyer Accepts the son’s woman and their child. Cries a lot; forbearance; Debate: culpable homicide vs. murder What do you think about Kumalo’s response? Is Absalom guilty? The system is to blame? James Jarvis :  James Jarvis Anger –revenge; He said that we called ourselves Christian, but what we mean is that we are white. Encountering Kumalo: 'fear' Jarvis: 'You need not be afraid of me.' (Lack of recognition) 'I understand what I did not understand. There is no anger in me.' Ending: Reconciliation, Conditional Help and Regeneration :  Ending: Reconciliation, Conditional Help and Regeneration Symbols: the name Absalom, rain and the land; encounter at the church (shelter) 'For it is the dawn that has come, as it has come for a thousand centuries, never failing. But when that dawn will come, of our emancipation, from the fear of bondage and the bondage of fear, why, that is a secret.' Note: U.S. vs. South Africa :  Note: U.S. vs. South Africa
