What was unique about the apartheid system followed in South Africa?
Apartheid was the system of racial discrimination on the basis of skin colour. This system was practised in South Africa where the original inhabitants which were large in number and were seen low in society.
Europeans which had settled in South Africa and were few in number enjoyed a high rank in society. The orignal inhabitants were termed as blacks (natives) and Europeans were termed as Whites. The uniqueness was that inspite of the native large in number were ruled in their own country by a small community of European settlers.
