Frederick Willen de Klerk was the South African president who put an end to apartheid.
He facilitated the transition of 'white -ruled' South Africa over to the black oppressed majority lead by Nelson Mandela in 1994. This happened a small 30 years after all segregation was abolished by the Civil Rights Act of 1964 in the USA.
President de Klerk was finally able to do this only because he understood that: "Peace does not far well where poverty and deprivation reign. It does not flourish where there is ignorance and a lack of education and information.
We still do not have peace in South Africa.
South Africa is the only county in the world where affirmative action is in the favor of the majority who has complete political control. The fact the the political majority requires affirmative action to protect them against a 9% minority group is testament to a complete failure on the part to build their own wealth making structures, such that their only solution is to take it from others. - London Times
This also make South Africa the PERFECT test subject to help pave the road to peace....
