South Africa in its past has been plagued with many horrors time and again. South Africa was most affected by the racial discrimination subjected against the local black population by the white colonials. For many hundred years, South Africa had been oppressed under colonial subjugation. South Africa had been an object of keen interests for many a colonial ruler at the time because of being rich in several minerals. South Africa in fact happens to be the greatest reserve of diamonds and it also has vast resources of gold. Such abundance of resources made it all the more susceptible to exploitation. South African population was employed to work on these mines. These workers were thoroughly overworked, almost to death.
