Draft:Pre-European population of South Africa
| The colorful pseudoscience|
|Hating thy neighbour|
|Divide and conquer|
Some claim that the pre-European population of South Africa was very small or non-existent. Supporters of this claim believe that the black population of South Africa are, in fact, descended from Bantu peoples who entered the area after European settlement made the land inhabitable, or that the Bantu people colonized South Africa concurrently with colonialists. This claim is sometimes made by Afrikaner nationalists or white nationalists.
Khoisan tribes lived in South Africa before European settlement.
