Racial segregation in the United States, included the racial segregation of facilities, services, and opportunities such as housing, medical care, education, employment, and transportation along racial lines.
Racial segregation in the United States was the physical separation and provision of separate facilities especially during the Jim Crow era, but it can also refer to other manifestations of racial discrimination such as separation of roles within an institution, such as the United States Armed Forces up to the 1950s when black units were typically separated from white units but were led by white officers.
Apartheid was a system of racial segregation enforced through legislation by the National Party governments, of South Africa, under which the rights of the majority black inhabitants of South Africa were reduced and Afrikaner minority rule was maintained. The government segregated education, medical care, beaches, other public services, and provided black people with services inferior to those of white people. It made it so that the natural inhabitants of that country were beneath whites.

Theme of Injustice
For many decades colored people precisely of the African descent have suffered brutality, prejudice, injustice . The implementation of laws such as Jim Crow lasw where as authorized de jure racial segregation in all public abilities in Southern states were permitted in the term “separate but equal.” These laws imposed inferiority from black to whites. Correspondingly, in South Africa the practice of Apartheid the system of racial segregation enforced through law by the National Party governments, where the rights of the primarily black inhabitants of South Africa were reduced and white supremacy was upheld. In both matters Africans and African Americans though in different time periods struggled with similar unjustly acts by whites.
Segregation was designed on the basis of "Separate but equal", the idea of segregation is that blacks and whites were entitled to similar services but they would have different facilities and would be kept from mixing with one another. Apartheid on the other hand was the term that the Afrikaaners used to describe their system of legally separating the racial groups in South Africa. Apartheid made the black majority in South Africa as if they were not South Africans at all; it made them members of their own separate tribes and were entitled to practically nothing under the law.
