My research is based on the South Africa apartheid. The apartheid and the racial resolution were more of the same. This is because the racial discrimination/isolation that was a major problem in the United States and the same thing happened in South Africa. Nelson Mandela fought so hard to get rid of the apartheid. During the apartheid there were so many massacres on African people (Clark, 2016).

When other countries in Africa hard about apartheid, and they swore to aid freedom for the people of South Africa so that they can end it. Most of these aids were freedom movements that wanted to help end apartheid. South Africa had a lot of resistant movement. Since it was more racial isolation Africans joined hands and that when Africa national congress was formed (Saye and Badroodein, 2017).

All this was also experienced in the United States and that is the reason why king martin Luther tried to adapt what Nelson Mandela did. The movements were mainly for the black elite. The movements was to allow the Africans in South Africa be given education and have the rights. The ANC tried to find help in the London so that they can offer plead and offer deals for the South African blacks (Clarks, 2016).

In summary, apartheid days in South Africa were brutal and it was more of a racial discrimination and isolation. Other African countries tried helping South Africa by forming resistant groups to fight against the apartheid. Both Mandela and Martin Luther tried to fight for the black elite so that they can have black elite. All they wanted is to be treated equal and be given equal opportunities like education and rights. Finally, ANC decided to find help from London to make a deal with the South African leaders.
