    "The word "apartheid" was invented as a political term by the ruling party in South Africa to describe the system of racial "separateness" it wanted to create. It was not always a meaningless political insult as you seem to think." - Realist I first was taught about South Africa in the auditorium of the John B. Dey elementary school (named for the owner of the antebellum plantation behind the school) in the 1950s. The principle introduced a man who put on a slide show about South Africa and assured us that South Africa understood that Segregation, he called it 'Apartheid', was the natural order of the world, was God's will, and that South Africa stood behind the American South in it's efforts to maintain 'separate but equal' as the status quo. Nice words to hide racism behind. "Segregation," "Apartheid," "States Rights," "White Man's Burden, "God's Will." Now it seems we should not think they ever meant what they did.
