ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the book "Naught for Your Comfort," by Reinhold Neibuhr. In the book, one reads about a country which has since announced its intention of imposing apartheid on the nursing profession; which is deaf to the pleas of eminent doctors that it will make itself a laughing stock in the world if it insists on labeling blood for transfusions European and non-European ; which appointed a specially selected commission to draw up a minimum blue-print for "Bantu Homelands" in its Native reserves, so as to justify the withholding of all rights from millions of Africans outside these "homelands," and which has yet turned down even the inadequate recommendations of that commission. A sad country of arrogant but frightened whites; of frustrated, resentful but tremendously resilient blacks who know that the future is on their side but whose present is pretty mean.
