The problems in South Africa began with the first white settler staking his claim to the land. Behind him came thousands more with similar intent, each demanding a little more. The infiltration of Europeans into South Africa not only stripped the indigenous people of their land but of their entire way of life. Gradually, all freedom was lost and the Africans became controlled and exploited by these settlers. Two centuries and several wars later, the whites had formed their own nation here on the African's land and began establishing institutions and laws to maintain their control.
