Apartheid

Sparks, Allister. The Mind of South Africa: The Story of the Rise and Fall of Apartheid. Mandarin, 1991.

Prejudice is there to be sure, but that is only part of it. The other part is a power struggle for control of a country, between a racial minority long imbued with the belief that its divinely ordained national existence depends on retaining control of the nation-state, and a disinherited majority demanding restitution of its rights, which would make that impossible.

Apartheid works. It has effectively managed to isolate the white man. He is becoming conditioned by his lack of contact with the people of the country, his lack of contact with the South African inside himself... His windows are painted white to keep the night in.

Berk, Ksenija. Barbed Wire: The Colonial Legacy of Design in Postcolonial Times. Decolonising Design, 2017.

The field of design, for the most part, has seldom addressed the dark side of its practice, namely objects, practices, and strategies used for exercising discrimination, forced-choice situations, mass control, and surveillance.
