What does it mean to be an Afrikaner after Apartheid? Between 1948 and 1994 Afrikaner nationalists dominated South African Politics. The democratic transition ended apartheid: the status of Afrikaners has fundamentally changed. Being white and Afrikaner is no longer automatically an advantage, even though many still enjoy economic privileges – 'white privileges'. Afrikaners remain proud of their past but also experience a stigma: they are held responsible for the crimes of apartheid. How do they adapt and change? This is also a moral question: what is Afrikaners responsibility to the past and to the necessity to change? Jacob Boersema did a cultural sociological study after the cultural trauma of Afrikaners after apartheid.
