The South African government created arbitrary regions called homelands. Under the homelands plan, black South Africans—about 75 percent of the country’s total population—were forced to live on only about 14 percent of the country’s land. Every black South African in the nation was assigned to a homeland and was supposed to stay in it unless a pass had been issued to him or her.

What was the white government’s attitude toward black South Africans in South Africa during the period of this policy?

    The homeland thing was a "legal" way of stripping black people of their citizenship and an attempt to justify treating them like slaves
