The attitude of black students towards the Afrikaner people is negative. Some recent surveys have brought this to light. In 1972 a M.A. thesis What do young Africans think? by M. L. Edelstein, a former Chief Welfare Officer in Soweto, was published. Edelstein set himself the task of ascertaining the attitudes of black matric pupils in Soweto, the large urban complex accomodating most of the black people of Johannesburg, to the no less than thirteen different South African Bantu and non-Bantu ethnic groups as well as to themselves and their situation.
