South Africa’s racist colonial history left black people disenfranchised, landless and vulnerable, a situation that was exploited by mine owners after the discovery of diamonds. Each act and law passed in the interest of mine owners and white laborers sowed the seeds for apartheid. It could be said that the discovery of rough diamonds polished racism into apartheid.
