About Bantu African
Black South Africans were at times officially called “Bantu” by the apartheid regime. The term Bantu is derived from the word for “people” common to many of the Bantu languages. In South Africa Bantu is no longer in wide use as a description of black South African people. The Oxford Dictionary of South African English describes its use in a racial context as obsolescent and offensive because of its strong association with white minority rule and the apartheid system. However, “Bantu” is used without pejorative connotations in other parts of Africa.
