What Can I Do?
- Become knowledgeable about the history and the social and political science in this fascinating and diverse land so that you can spread the truth about what is really happening in this social experiment of the rainbow nation.
- Call your congressmen or women and apply pressure on them to find out what the USA policy is on South Africa. This kind of grass roots pressure was, as you remember, very effective in placing sanctions on the White South African government of the 80’s and 90’s.
- Communicate with others on the various articles exploring different aspects of the problem and brainstorm on approaches which may or may not work.
- Take to social media and share your knowledge and experience.
- Plan to visit South Africa and round out your academic knowledge with real life experiences. South Africa is truly at the crossroads of the social experiment of our age and has an extremely interesting history, dynamic and diverse people and architecture and beautiful scenery.

Twenty three years after South Africa became a democratic country and the darling of the media because of the relatively peaceful transition of power from predominantly colonial ruling class to a democratically elected government with a constitution written for the people, many are unaware that it is a deeply segregated country.
The rainbow nation ideal has not been attained and some argue it has real challenges ahead if it is to salvage the dream.
