CAN BLACK PEOPLE BE RACIST 

The Civil Writer Magazine

Black people can be anything but not all white and Black at the same time. But they can be prejudice and racist with an exception. Blacks cannot be racist in America where they have no control but they can be racist in Africa especially in South Africa where they've takened control. The definition of racism is not difficult; prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one's own race is superior. This what has come about in South Africa in the last five years. According to a 2017 government audit, 72 percent of the nation's private farmland is owned by white people, who make up 9 percent of the population. The organization Afriforum claim that 24% of South African land is owned by the state and 34,5% is owned by black people. The Natives Land Act of 1913 restricted black people from buying or renting land in "white South Africa", leading to the forced removals of black people.

Since the end of apartheid — once South Africa's system of legal segregation — the nation's leading political party, the African National Congress, has followed a “willing seller, willing buyer” model whereby the government buys white-owned farms for redistribution to black farmers. Some land has been taken by force by the people. Separate the two acts of 1913 and 2017 and explain which is not racism.
