The Rainbow Myth: Dreaming of a Post-racial South African Society

Nelson Mandela’s ideals incite admiration and hope for most South Africans, overseas citizens and other international observers.

This has been the foundation of the ANC, its political programs and the SA constitution.

This paper will trace back the original mission of a rainbow nation and compare them with the present situation.
