The Roman Catholic Archbishop of Durban, the Most Reverend Denis Hurley, said in Durban on May 25 the South African colour bar would have to go peacefully or violently if the country was to avoid total disintegration and collapse. He told a debating society in Durban that White South Africa might hold out with its policy of racial discrimination for some time because it controlled the police and armed forces, but the end was inevitable. The Archbishop said apartheid hit at the foundation of a man’s freedom, the source of his rights and his very humanity. He said South Africa’s colour crisis would probably not occur as a centrally planned and directed revolution. It was most likely to develop as a series of disturbances, increasing progressively in size, frequency, and intensity until the fabric of social and political order began to disintegrate.
