This chapter shows that Afrikaners developed a theology that fused a virulent racism to a ‘strong state’ which they successfully manipulated to address the ‘poor white problem’. Afrikaners, in other words, sought to protect impoverished whites by making Social Gospelism the very business of the state itself.

Keywords:   Afrikaners, racism, strong state, poor white problem, Social Gospelism
