Soweto soil on white skin

Al Jazeera's Paul Rhys finds forgiveness for Apartheid as he spends 24 hours in Soweto.

    Al Jazeera's Paul Rhys spends 24 hours in the township of Soweto to gauge the state of race relations since the end of Apartheid in 1994.

    As the World Cup organisers trumpet unity, a white face in Soweto is still a rare sight. But one Johannesburg white is determined to break down the barriers.

    Resentment of whites remains, but feelings are by no means clear-cut as acceptance and understanding are found in the most impoverished areas.
