The period of apartheid in South Africa was a dark chapter in the country's history. A period in history when people of color not only faced discrimination but also extreme violence. Only recently has a white South African woman spoken publicly about this, revealing that members of her own family committed murder during the country's apartheid era.
You may watch her tell about the atrocities performed by two relatives in a video she posted to the social media platform TikTok by clicking the link below. Before I go any further, let me emphasize that she does not endorse this at all; rather, she is merely trying to emphasize the realities that people of color faced under apartheid. She begins by recalling a beloved ancestor who has died away. As far as she is concerned, he murdered a kid and got away with it. Although, strictly speaking, it was an accident.
She then describes another member of her family, this one much older. The man boasted that he had a human skull on his coffee table and that he had killed numerous people. She concludes by expressing her frustration with the general public for wanting to put apartheid behind them. Read on for my thoughts or to view her video.
