Historical Terms: Baskaap

[Here’s an ugly term and concept to consider in the present-day United States; we have elected representatives, alas, articulating garbage like this.]

baskaap (Afrikaan, ‘masterhood’). The underlying white supremacist ethos crudely expressing the ideology of Apartheid.

Excerpted from: Cook, Chris. Dictionary of Historical Terms. New York: Gramercy, 1998.
