South African High Court Classifies Chinese as ‘Black’

The African News Journal, Posted: Jun 30, 2008

ST. PAUL – Under a new ruling by a high court in South Africa, Chinese-South Africans are now classified as “black,” together with black Africans and Indians who also suffered discrimination under apartheid, reports The African News Journal. As a result, Chinese-South African citizens can now benefit from affirmative action laws. Under apartheid, they were classified as “colored,” forced to live separately from whites and denied the right to vote and educational and business opportunities.
