The Reality of South Africa – the Townships

Travel and Photography

Racism in action

Driving down the main highway in Cape Town is extremely salutary. On one side of the highway is the Townships where the poor blacks live. It is a shanty town of ramshackle sheds in which the black population live.

On the other side of the road there are the beautiful houses of the white suburbs.

Every morning one can see the black people pouring out of the townships to go to work in the white estates as maids, gardeners, cooks and odd-job men.

These are the toilets for all the people living in the township.
