Apartheid had many effect on the government in South Africa. The government had made the black africans not have many rights at all compared to whites in South Africa. The government allowed whites to be obeyed by blacks.


The economy during the apartheid was very por and people couldn't afford much. Blacks struggled to get jobs and if they did have them they would get payed little to no money.


During apartheid since blacks were had such little power and little rights, they were treated poorly by most because it was law. Blacks without their passbooks could be arrested or beaten. An example is the Sharpeville massacre, when blacks were protesting by purposely getting arrested by not have their passbooks. The government thought this was violent and killed many including women and children.
