Abstract:In 1998 the South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) embarked on a study of human rights, prejudice, racial conflict and racial integration in public schools. The aim of the survey, in which 79 schools participated, was to examine not only overt racial manifestations and practices but also more elusive, but nonetheless inhibiting forms of racism. While the study picked up many examples of subtle racism, it also revealed shocking practices. To the question: 'Have there been racial incidents or examples of racism in your school', 62 percent answered in the affirmative. The incidents varied from racial name-calling to racially inspired murder. The study also revealed numerous examples of institutional racism. Bibliogr., sum. (p. 9).
