Why join ACTA

Pre-1994 it was normal and expected for indigenous black South Africans especially females to be regarded as sub-human and incapable of achieving anything academically. Their male counterparts however were would be subjected to direct torture and humiliation.

The selection was overwhelmingly based on ability to compliant and to be able to accept that it was normal for the black majority to be poor and remain loyal to whites for their survival. Tightly controlled and selective empowerment also explains the divide and rule policy of the then government.
