    Weren't the bantu states created in areas where the population was black already? AFAIK the appartheid government did not move people into the bantu states. They merely vorbid people to move into white areas if they were not white. Furthermore, only non white people with jobs were allowed to overnight into white areas. They were affraid blacks will commit all sorts of crimes during the night. Forcibly transporting people into bantu states was not part of their agenda. If it happened it must have been very limited. For ethnic cleansing, a sizable portion of one particular ethnic group must be killed or forcibly removed by another. In South Africa it was not about ethnicity. It was about race. If anything, the term "racial cleansing" should be used. AFAIK none of this happened in South Africa.

    By 1982, under the Group Areas Act of 1950, over 3.5 million people were forcibly removed and many more faced removals thereafter.[xxi] These removals were documented by activist research projects such as the Surplus People’s Project [T2] (SPP) under the co-ordination of Laurine Platzky[xxii]as well as The Discarded People by Cosmas Desmond[xxiii]. To date, millionsof people have experienced forced removals at the hands of state authorities and countless numbers asa result of private evictions by landowners in rural areas.[xxiv] Black farm labourers make up the biggest group of people to have been forcibly removed from their homes.[xxv]

    OK. But which people were removed? Was a particular ethnic group only? If not the term 'racial cleansing' should be used.
    Oh and be careful with biased research and opinions.
