    Forgive my ignorance, but, were there any black members of the South African parliment under the Apartheid regime or was the parliment 100% white?

    They weren't considered citizens of South Africa, they were designated to small and limited political regions that were designated as "states" and that's where they were allowed to vote, but most of them didn't actually live in those regions.

    As far as I understand it, only white South Africans were allowed to vote or be elected.
