South Africa is a complex and changing country that is still dealing with a legacy of racial division. It was only 15 years ago that the system of apartheid ended, and since then many of the racial barriers have been broken down, if not forgotten. But a gap still exists today between have and have-nots, and many of the poor are black. They may be equal on paper, but because of impoverished conditions, many still feel unequal. Worldfocus special correspondent Martin Seemungal takes look at the new South Africa, beginning in Soweto, a former black township in Johannesburg that came to symbolize the repressive old days. Bloggers in South Africa and elsewhere discuss the state of race relations in the country: http://worldfocus.org/blog/2009/02/23/poverty-preserves-racial-lines-in-post-apartheid-south-africa/4161/ Worldfocus video podcast: feed://feeds2.feedburner.com/worldfocus

On the other hand white South Africans are learning that now the tables have turned, life isn't so easy. When Apartheid ended black South Africans got opportunities that weren't there before. Phindi and Tschepo Kgaudi took these with both hands. Now they are living their dream, as South Africa's first shoe designers. "Now we stay in a bigger house, with bigger cars and we didn't inherit that, we earned that," smiles Tschepo. Meanwhile, the white Grobler family live in shacks in a scrap yard, barely earning enough to survive. Johan Grobler argues Apartheid hasn't ended, it's just changed; "now it's just the opposite." As both families look towards the future, the Grobler's feel their only chance for a better life is to move. "This isn't my land anymore. The blacks come first."
