This paper explores, from a historical perspective, the evolution of imperial colonialism in South Africa by examining the political impact of the apartheid period on the society and the people and on the South African society today. The author points out that all the definitions of the term 'apartheid' contain the basic idea of segregated identities based on race, color or social position. The paper relates that the Group Areas Act of 1950 formally established apartheid in South Africa by delimiting by law the respective districts for each race and by barring members from other races from living, operating businesses or owning land in these districts.
