A black man rides a bus restricted to whites only, in Durban. In an act of resistance to South Africa’s apartheid policies, 1986.

look at their faces. upset that this black man dared to exist in their space

It’s sad how terrified he looks.

the fear in his eyes man :/ 

not even “their space”. Europeans invaded South Africa, separated Black people from their own country and dared to be aghast at their want to considered humans. This was just 28 years ago, guys!!

My grandmother. My dad on the far left. She eventually had 14 children. My great grandfather was a preacher who tried to organize blacks in the south, because of this the klan burned down their home and later tried to kill them again by ramming their car loaded with babies and small children and causing a serious accident, putting my dad and some siblings in the hospital which by the way wouldn’t accept black people so they had to leave and find another one in another city, all the while bloody and injured. Because of civil rights riots there was a curfew placed on the town, my dad broke curfew at 12 because he wanted a coke from the vending machine across the street, he told me while he walked a pickup truck pulled up next to him and pointed a rifle in his face, they said nothing but followed him back home with the gun pointed at his head, HE WAS 12 My grandfather was also blacklisted, nobody would hire him, rent a home to him, sell a car to him…the klan has members in all areas of life, denying black people jobs, cars and property it was and still is one of the ways they kept black families destitute, and starting your own business was at the risk of your life. There were many more incidents but after this one my grandmother sent my dad and his older brothers away, she knew they would probably end up shot or hung. All because his dad was a civil rights advocate. There are many more stories but I’ll wait till his book comes out which he is working on now.
