1)the story happened in South Africa. The area is durty, ugly with poor huts. It’s a shantytown.

2)A township is a small, poor town with crude huts. It’s like a getho. The people who live in a township are illegal, black and poor.

3)They can’t live in Cape town because they are black and illegal. So they sleep in a township with all black and illegal people.

4)The system refers to the aparheid system. The governement system.

5)The description of the police raid on Crossroads is very cruel and violent.
It’s foretell a hard and very difficult story with conflict between black and white people. It’s introduce perhaps a violent story and it’s show us the thruth in South Africa.
