    Apartheid is a system which was used to enact strict racial laws that separates the white race from the black race. The black majority was subject to exploitation prohibitive laws. This paper will discuss the theme of oppression and racial discrimination in the play Sizwe Bansi is Dead by Athol Fugard Theme of oppression Oppression is a situation in which people are governed in an unfair and cruel way and prevented from having opportunities and freedom. McIntosh, Oppression in Sizwe Bansi is Dead takes place in two forms, the psychological which is mental and the visible physical depravation which is political, economic, social and labour exploitation which reflects in the life of Outa Jacob using strict passbook laws. He is reminded of the work conditions that he suffered at Ford Motor Company. The system of apartheid was designed to break and discourage hopes for a brighter future of all the black people living under white rule. He tells Nowetu about the tough oppressive situations he encountered before he finds a job in Port Elizabeth. This situation is confusing and tormenting to Siswe, therefore it is a psychological form of mental oppression. This act also did not allow Africans to own land, vote, and move to different areas, also for employment in white areas they needed a permit. Seen in Sizwe Bansi wanted to stay in Port Elizabeth but did not have the permit to. At first, Sizwe finds it difficult to answer to this name and later to memorise the new Native Identification number. His quotients oppresses him. Theme of discrimination Racial discrimination is treating a person or particular group of people differently, especially in a worse way from the way in which you treat other people, because of their skin colour. It is a form of oppression.

    And it's dangerous, under the ground. Many black men get killed when the rocks fall. You can die there. In another event, Outa Jacob worked on farms from this district down to the coast and north as far as Pretoria.

    I knew him. He was a friend. Many people knew Outa Jacob. For a long time he worked for Baas van der Walt. But when the old man died his young son Hendrik said: 'I don't like you.

    His wife followed. He went to the next farm.

    He stayed a long time there too, until one day there was trouble between the Madam and his wife. Jacob and his wife were walking again. The passbook experience was also meant to eliminate black people because most of them could not read. Sizwe is troubled about his misunderstanding of the message in the passbook he carries everyday.

    It was a symbol of fear and weakness by white Afrikanner minority. The gains made by these white oppressors coasted them a reputation that will last forever. It was a lesson for the World to learn.

    However, now that black people are free from racial and mental oppression, this past still haunts us because a majority of black people in Africa live in abject poverty.

    Unless black people strive to become like Styles, who starts his own business. Then we can be empowered. References Fisher, I.
